Subtle DifferencesElizabeth Vennekens-Kelly, author, business English coach and cross-cultural consultant, was over the moon when sales of Subtle Differences, Big Faux Pas recently hit a milestone of 500.

Subtle Differences, Big Faux Pas: Test Your Cultural Competence helps the expat negotiate his/her way through the maze of cultural blunders we all face on relocating – the end goal being to become “culturally competent”. A key strategy behind the book’s success has been its inclusion as a text at a community college as well as in a multinational firm’s relocation packages. “I know 500 is a drop in the ocean for big authors that sell a million copies,” says Elizabeth, “but I’m thrilled!”
