Working, living, and interacting with the Japanese people is especially difficult in today’s world. I chose Harriet to help me because she has lived there and “walked the walk!” Harriet discussed the nuances, stressed the importance of eye movement and contact and the importance of bowing and its respect.

I had the pleasure of working with Harriet Russell as an interpreter on her trip to Minsk, Belarus in the fall of 2011. She is an extremely professional and effective presenter in a variety of contexts. Her presentations were all well-structured, up to the point with relevant information for the audience.

Simply put, Harriet Russell is a charismatic person. More specifically she is friendly, energetic and involved. Harriet is knowledgeable in many areas as well as street-wise. She has international business knowledge, cross cultural expertise, in-depth information and years of experience in the global realm.

When Harriet speaks, people listen. She draws from many fields, many cultures and many disciplines. She is conversant in several languages (Spanish, Japanese, Russian, and can even recite Hindi and write/read Sanskrit). And the topics range from business, international relations, personal development, spiritual awareness, health, understanding food, communication, ancient cultures and, more or less, you name it. Any discourse she presents will have depth and perspective.
