VIVA is pleased to announce an evening with Edith Coron, Author and Coach.
Her evening’s discussion will chart her journey from Journalist to Executive Coach and Co Author with Anne Garrique of the book entitled Les nouveaux éclaireurs de la Chine- hybridité culturelle et globalization. (China Blend: The Cultural Hybrids Bridging the World) which will be published by Les Belles Lettres- Manitoba- Paris in October 2015.
Edith Coron is a successful executive coach and intercultural specialist, having spent 20 years as a foreign correspondent for publications including The Christian Science Monitor, Newsday, The European and Le Monde. She has written one book, “The Last Exodus” (Editions Francois Bourin, Paris 1993 and Forlaget Exodus, Oslo 1993) that explored the massive wave of Soviet Jewish immigration to Israel in the early 1990’s.
A global nomad by choice, she studied journalism in the U.S.A. and has lived and worked in North and West Africa, the U.K, Latin America, Israel, Russia and France; she has been based in China since 2006.
Cultural complexity is a daily, family affair for her. She and her English husband of 30 years have raised their two “third culture” sons on three continents. On the professional front she is now playing an active role in the encounter between China and the world. Multinational corporations and international organizations turn to her to coach their executives and their teams.
Edith Coron works professionally in French, Spanish, and English. She also speaks Russian as well as some Hebrew and Mandarin. In her career as a foreign correspondent she explained and analyzed France for European readers in English, and described the political, economic and social transformations wracking post-Soviet Russia to Western audiences after the end of the cold war. She reported on the Israel-Palestine conflict and witnessed the changes that followed the departure of military dictators throughout South America. She reported on insurgencies, revolutions and natural disasters in Nicaragua, El Salvador, Panama and Guatemala and on development, refugee and social issues in North and West Africa.
An experienced public speaker, she writes for professional journals and is regularly interviewed by European media, offering a unique blend of expertise in personal development, international business and world cultures.
Many of the VIVA community knows Edith well because in 2008 when VIVA first started she was the first registered member.
