Communicating in a Globalizing World by Muriel Glasgow

Communicating in a Globalizing World: Back-to-basics communication to ABC - Always Be Civil. Connect, Communicate, be Civil. Value other cultures in a global community; be conscious of unconscious habits which speak volumes, travel and have fun…the key aspects to global communications and sustaining relationships. Issues like respect, tolerance, patience, understanding...these make the world go around as regards building relationships with people from other cultures. And do not forget the impact of a SMILE - Say More Immediately with a Little Encouragement - all cultures respond to a smile, a universal behaviour which is understood and appreciated by all.

This book stems from the author’s experience in the Philippines in 1977. when she encountered the President’s wife at a United Nations event and greeted her in Tagalog. The FirstLady was taken aback that a foreigner would greet her in her language and invited Ms Glasgow to Malacanang Palace, on
7.7.77.This interaction helped increase the author’s interest in languages and their cultural implications.
