About this Episode

S̄wạs̄dī Glocal Citizens! (That’s Thai for “hello!”) Over the next two episodes you’ll be getting to know my next guest, the consummate glocal citizens poster child, Yana Fleming. Yana hails from Washington, D.C. where she attended Howard University, but she hasn’t called the US home for at least a decade. I caught up with her in early April in one of her longtime home bases in Thailand. A communications consultant specializing in capacity building for women entrepreneurs, Yana has worked on five continents and has fluency or facility in seven languages. In her work, Yana takes a holistic approach to integrated marketing, communications, planning and evaluation—encompassing all aspects of an organization’s marketing and communications goals. She works with internal and external stakeholders to develop a realistic communications calendar designed to continuously engage the target audience through key messaging tailored to their preferred media channels. Her efforts consistently increase programmatic awareness, acquire new consumer bases, and assist in forging public-private partnerships. In our two part conversation, you’ll literally learn what it is like to live and work at far ends of the earth and a good deal of what it takes to settle into a life styled by nomadic professionalism.
