When you find that cultural differences are getting in the way of moving forward, you know that another strategy has to kick in. Download my FREE GUIDE, highlighting the 3 Key Points to intercultural understanding.


You’re cultured, successful in your job, and now work with people from other cultures, a job that matters. You are committed to making your intercultural teams successful too.

You have a clear vision of how you want to manage people from other cultures, but it’s not easy as you are finding out. What do you need to know to make it work so everyone’s happy?

I see the steps you need to take to get your culturally diverse people working in harmony despite all those differences that make your work puzzling and distressing.

Whether you work with individual foreign managers or culturally diverse teams, no matter where they are from, I can help.

Dreaming about how you can do this is one thing? Making it happen is another. Let’s do it together.

Laurie Personnet | Frontières CoachingHi, I’m Laurie Personnet

I’m an intercultural coach and trainer for corporate individuals and teams who don’t feel comfortable working with different cultures because it’s just not easy.  I believe that it is possible to do this and bring joy into working with others from vastly different backgrounds.  I am passionate about different cultures and how they work.

What does this mean for you?  I know how to help you understand other cultures, what makes them different from yours and how you can work with them in comfort.  So instead of fretting and agonising about what to do and how to react, you can do it with confidence to produce excellent work.

I love helping you find creative, innovative ways of working with others so your job with them is more than just a job.  It also brings joy into what you do.

I use my personal experience, cultural know-how, training and coaching skills, and especially love of communicating with people from everywhere to help you gain culturally up-lifting relationships and success in your business affairs when working with people whose culture is not yours.

  • “Laurie was very efficient with a well laid out program and package.  She helped solve my problems in a pragmatic way.  Now I feel better at work and have a tight bond with several co-workers.  I also feel like I fit in better.  I recommend her to co-workers and in the forums on Facebook and LinkedIn.  It would have been nice to know about her services a long time before I contacted her.  What I like best about working with Laurie is that she’s nuts but she understands what people are going through.”

  • “Laurie has extensive experience in all kinds of intercultural and interpersonal issues and her toolbox is marvellously well-equipped with coaching, training and teaching tools.  I appreciate her sense of humour, encouragement and honest appraisals of situations.  I recommend her for communication and intercultural training individually and in groups, especially for people who “click” with a bubbly, energetic personality.”

She has been a great asset to our professional association, especially facilitating the workshop “Present Yourself” for the Professional Enhancement Programme training day.  I recommend Laurie for anyone who is looking for encouragement, honest feedback, and a kind, attentive approach.”
