Kiriko Nishiyama


Ms. Nishiyama is a cross-cultural trainer, moderator and coach. Being native Japanese, she studied journalism at Ithaca College in the USA before working as an English-language reporter for the international news agency Agence France Presse in Tokyo. Her fascination for communicating what happens in the Japanese society led to the discovery of her passion of working as a cross-cultural trainer in Europe. Based in Munich, Germany, Ms. Nishiyama’s love for Brazilian martial art capoeira and search for tranquility in Zen-Buddhism are part of the dynamics which many participants re-discover in her workshop.
