Chapter 17. Making Sure It's Not Greek to Them
International Presentations

We really appreciate the chance to talk to you folks from (Japan). We have some new ideas we want to bounce off you that we think will really blow your minds. Our new Widget has been cutting through our competitors like Joe Schmucko going through the line. Speaking of Joe, there's a funny story about a hot romance, ha, ha, ha. . . . Our Widget has had great success in CONUS, especially on DoD spook programs such as HTSM and FRGM. . . . I know you'll want to put in an order today, so we've got our sales manager here and we can get to that right after we take a coffee break. Let's take ten and hit the john.

Language and culture differences make this a vastly different presentation situation from what the speaker is used to. The stakes can be high and the pitfalls many, so wise presenters will consider these differences in preparation and delivery.
