We are thrilled to announce that we have an exciting speaker for this lunch. He will discuss expat life and adjusting to a new culture. 

John Knipfing is a Cultural Intelligence consultant at Mahanakorn Partners Group, with degrees in International Studies and Adult Education and Training, as well as 23 years of living in Asia. He trains and coaches both international and local organizations with leaders and specialists who have relocated or will be relocating to a new culture and local associates and leaders working with colleagues from other cultures.

As a member of the MPG team, John works with individuals, couples and groups, enabling them to interact effectively across cultures. This interactive process entails gaining an understanding of how culture affects our behavior, one's own cultural preferences, the deep cultural differences between oneself and the target culture, and finding ways to individually overcome these differences. Participants also develop a deeper understanding of how people within the target culture interact.

John is a member of BNI (Business Network International), the American Chamber of Commerce in Thailand and the Thai-Italian Chamber of Commerce.

L'Opera Bangkok offers a wide selection of luscious mouthwatering dishes from the Tuscany kitchen. Their food is MSG free and all the important ingredients are imported—from the dried pasta Rustichella D'Abruzzo to the peeled tomatoes and buffalo mozzarella and other assorted cheeses to the cured hams, olives, capers, fish and seafood. Some essential dessert ingredients such as chocolate, mascarpone, and Savoiardi Ladyfinger biscuit are also imported.
