Margot is a truly excellent trainer I’ve ever met. She is well informed, experienced and engaging. The cross culture training she delivered in our company was well-received. She provided a lot of practical tips/techniques on how to build a good cross culture relationship in a global company. In addition, she has extensive cross culture experience both in life & work, the user cases she shared are very easily to understand and help participants connect them to their daily job in the workplace. Thank you very much, Margot.
Head of Gaming Israel - Facebook
People tend to think that working with other culture would be very similar to what you are familiar with, your own culture. It is significantly important to understand how much understanding the other culture matters. On behalf of the Israel gaming team, I wanted to express our high appreciation to you and for the wonderful workshop you delivered to us. It was extremely creative, informative, innovative and eye-opening. Mainly, we all felt you provided us to set of tools to understand better ourselves as well as work efficiently with other cultures.
Once again, thank you for making the successful workshop and creating a change to our ability to work better in the future.
“Margo Paz has trained and endowed many of Bank Leumi’s managers with inter-culture skills which are extremely significance to managers working in a Global environment and do business with clients and colleagues world-wide.

Head of R&D, CloudBand Application Manager, Nokia
Our product line is a multicultural one, people working together from three main sites: Budapest, India, Israel. Yair Paz from Globaleys has been asked to conduct a training on each site with the goal to make people aware of the behavior differences due to cultural background.
The training was very structured highlighting the cultural behavior backed up with historical and sociological explanations. The good situational examples also helped a lot to understand different work approaches.
Yair is a professional trainer, could engage the interest of trainees all along the two days sessions.
I can recommend the training for anyone working multi-site, it helps to increase the acceptance of behavior differences coming from the cultural background.

At the beginning of 2018, our company held a global summit in Cancun, Mexico. As part of the leadership program, we held a workshop on Managing Multicultural Teams. Yair Paz from Globaleyes conducted the training which turned out to be an excellent session. It helped us increase our knowledge and awareness of the different cultures we work with and improve the communication amongst the leadership team. The workshop provided us with the right guidance, skills and tips that really affected the way we work with colleagues around the world.

Margot spent a day with my global team of 55 legal and regulatory professionals focussing on cultural intelligence and collaboration. We all agreed that we found the day incredibly informative, insightful, fascinating and rewarding. Understanding and respecting cultural differences across a global team is important for our collective and individual success and Margot quickly got to the heart of the issues and provided memorable story-telling and enjoyable engagement. I would unreservedly recommend her as an educator and partner in the global knowledge agenda.

I recently participated in a cultural awareness course hosted by Yair and sponsored by my employer. Yair has a fascinating and diverse background providing him the instant credibility required to present such complex topics. His personal anecdotal stories provided context in a way the entire team could comprehend. Yair is excellent in front of an audience and retains an exceptional knowledge of cross-cultural challenges that many global corporations need to understand in order to overcome. Strongly recommend Yair and the cultural training services provided by Globaleyes

We have brought her back 4 times to make sure all of our employees receive this excellent one day workshop to improve their overall communication skills with both US and Indian colleagues.

I believe that we have greatly benefited from his insights on how to work in a dynamic and multicultural environment with examples and useful skillsets to build a cohesive global team.
“Margo came to ClickSoftware a few times to train our managers on different Cross Cultural issues. She was very professional, always demonstrated excellent knowledge of the relevant culture, but more important – was able to provide us with the right training, guidance, suggestions and tips that really effected the way we do business and work with colleagues around the world. Margo’s presentations were always interesting, educating, funny and with food for thought that are remembered long after the workshop is over.”
CSO & Head of Global Corporate Security at Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd.
"A couple of months ago we ran a professional conference in Israel for our colleagues worldwide. The audience counted some 30 people, 6 Israelis, 3 Americans – and all others from 22 different countries and four continents – and the challenge was indeed breaking the ice and start building a team.
Our HR BP referred us to GlobalEyes, based on previous experience. It turned out an excellent choice: we got an ice breaker session that was really focused, practical and full of humor with Yair; and later on we had him do a very interesting eye opening session on Developing a Global Mindset – which provided us a lot of really tangible insights that help clear cross cultural barriers and better understand each other. It was a lot of fun and everybody enjoyed – despite the cultural differences and even some language barriers.
I definitely recommend GlobalEyes for this types of challenges.
Thanks Yair, Loved your session last week. It was an important component in our teambuilding effort."
Hilla Porat Goldshtein

The workshop which has been made according to our needs, answered the relevant issues / questions and conflicts that we deal with on a daily basis. I believe that even those who are not in a direct interaction with global teams, got an enormous added value by hearing your great practical experience and be exposed to the relevant theories behind the different cultures (I know that I did).

Your professionalism and wealth of experience contributed greatly.
Hope to work with you again in the future."
Software Section Manager, Bangalore, CT engineering – Philips
“In my view, your pre-program research was a high point in the success of the program. By this I refer to the focused effort that you put in to understand exact areas of interest and conflicts for the teams. Through this, you were able to arrive at the right focal point for the teams to work upon. During the program, I picked up ideas that I was able to deploy effectively and benefit off the same. The sessions were lively, open and very insightful in helping my team appreciate the cultures of Israel and US. I saw a very engaged audience at the session, thanks to your excellent delivery, driven by experience and passion. You touched upon other cultures too and this added that extra bit to our understanding. It has been quite some months now and I recognize that I have internalized some of the thoughts that you had shared and it works for me! I recognize this change with some of my other colleagues too. Thank you for your contribution in improving our outlook here."
Senior Director Marketing and Product Management at Mellanox Technologies
A great presentation by Yair to our APAC team about multicultural differences. Addressing a very sensitive topic in a smart and professional way (and funny too!), in front of few hundred people who did not know who Yair was prior and still felt like he was right on the spot! Thank you Yair! It was really an educating and fun experience - we now need to repeat this with the other regions with similar success 😉.
