Natsuyo Nobumoto Lipschutz

Natsuyo is a Global Leadership and Cross-Cultural Communications strategist.

She equips global leaders with advanced cross-cultural communication skills to improve team dynamics by bridging the cultural gap and leveraging diversity.

Americans communicate directly, whereas the Japanese, for example, rely on non-verbal cues. With such a large gap, learning cultural protocols such as how to bow won't build trusting, highly productive teams needed to build successful business. If cultural diversity is not managed well, your business falls apart. When it is managed well, however, powerful team synergies occur.

Corporate clients are saying…

"We've worked with multiple speech consultants, but Natsuyo's approach is second to none. Her McKinsey trained strategic and analytical skills allowed us to take a big leap from "the top IT company in Japan" to the "world class' global company."


"Very engaging and insightful. Natsuyo was very clear with her points, illustrated her personal examples to enhance those points, and gave us practical insights."

~ Toyota Tsusho America

"Natsuyo’s keynote speech on cross-culture was very insightful and very educational. Culture could be very fascinating but very complicated. Often, we encounter a situation where we deliver a message and it’s interpreted in a wrong way, but we don’t know what actually went wrong. Natsuyo clarified the reasons for such misunderstandings, and gave us practical tools to improve our cross-cultural communications. Her talk was also very engaging. Not a single person got board during her talk for a single second…! "

~ BNP Paribas

"Given we are a multi-cultural group and company, Natsuyo’s tips on how to communicate effectively in a diverse work environment was extremely beneficial to us. Participants took away valuable lessons from her talk and from interactive exercises."

~ American Express

Private coaching clients are saying..

My name is Kenya Conway Jones, and I had the pleasure of working with and being coached by Natsuyo on a big speech that I had coming up. And I needed to make sure that it was dynamic and memorable for my audience. And I tell you Natsuyo did an excellent job asking me just the right questions that allowed me to uncover the points that I was trying to convey to my audience. She helped me with my delivery style, the mood I was trying to create, and Natsuyo helped me to organize my speech in such a way that made my message clear to my audience, easy for them to remember. And she also helped me discover a little humor in myself that I didn't know was there. But it ultimately made it fun for my audience. So I thanked her tremendously for that.

Natsuyo is a master coach and I highly recommend her services. It is definitely worth the investment. I guarantee you, you will come away with the speech that will wow your audience no matter how boring you think your topic will be.
