  1. About major cultural groups and what their expectations are in business
  2. Do’s and Don’ts in working with various cultures and ethnicities

Industry colleagues nominating their fellow professional Home Stagers is really wonderful and what was shared about each nominee has been so great to see. It tells me that our work is being noticed, and our industry colleagues are appreciative of each other. In a world where there is a lot of negativity and lack of support for people who “compete” with each other, this is refreshing and part of what we hoped would happen with these industry recognition awards.
