We have worked with Osnat many times over the years at the Israel-Asia Center. Osnat has run Israeli culture workshops – both in person and online – for Asian participants on our various leadership programs – from India, China, Indonesia, Philippines, Singapore, Japan, Vietnam… Our program participants have found her workshops not only to be deeply insightful and dynamic, but also fun and engaging! Her workshops are a must for participants at the beginning of any of our Israel-Asia leadership programs, and I would highly recommend her to any organizations or companies who are working internationally.
I have partnered with OLM Consulting on several cross-cultural communication programs that have spanned five continents. Each workshop under Osnat’s guidance is meticulously planned, addresses cultural misunderstandings head-on, and fundamentally enhances team performance. Her professionalism, trustworthiness, and effectiveness have been integral in driving the desired outcomes.
Engaging with Osnat and OLM Consulting signifies a true commitment to long-term business development and growth. I am confident your partnership will result in increased company-wide productivity and a much more harmonious work environment!
We had an excellent lecture by Osnat about cultural mindset. Osnat was knowledgeable and engaging, and the lecture was informative and inspiring. It was great to hear Osnat give such a detailed overview of cultural differences when dealing with colleagues from different backgrounds.

The workshops were insightful.
We had teams across the globe and Osnat managed the sessions remarkably. We learned a lot and the biggest review here is that one of my employees (US regional manager) asked to have a second session after about 3 years, he remembered the session and how good it was so he wanted to do it again for all the new employees. The session was about cultural differences.
Osnat is a professional consultant, expert in the cross cultural domain, brings a deep background to discussions, 1;1 consulting, lectures and workshops with theory and practical combined optimally.
we have worked together on an organizational- cross cultural interface challenge and had and amazing experience of analysis and insights of cultural differences in Spain and Israel, along to organizational causes.
I Enjoy my work with Osnat for her professionalism, integrity and charm!!!
Thank you Osnat for an incredibly dynamic, insightful & unifying session with our Sanofi team. The feedback from everyone that attended has been overwhelming favourable.
Osnat is a Cross-Cultural expert. She provided number of workshops and lectures in the British embassy for our diplomats, embassy employees and our special women’s delegation.
Her eye-opening content about the Israeli Business Culture and the way she delivers the lecture, provides a real added values for the participants. At the end of the lecture, Osnat gives each participant a copy of her book, Israeli Business Culture. This excellent book allows the delegates to delve deeper into the content even after they return home to the UK. I highly recommended both the lecture and the book to anyone interested in doing business with Israelis.
Osnat Lautman delivers a very interesting lecture about Israeli Business Culture. She is a great speaker with a passion for the subject and deep professional expertise. She is engaging and connects with the delegation during the lecture and provides very good information.
Osnat Lautman has participated in a number of events organized by our embassy for visiting business delegations from Sweden and we received only positive feedback.
We recommend Osnat Lautman for any business delegations visiting Israel.
We hired Osnat as a motivational speaker at our sales kickoff event in Tel Aviv. She was brilliant, funny & entertaining; all of our international workers got a true taste of Israel through her session. She also gave out autographed copies of her books to everyone to take home. I highly recommend her as a motivational speaker.
On a number of occasions, we invited Osnat to give lectures to business delegations from Belgium. Her lecture provides businesspeople with an excellent understanding of the business culture in Israel, highlighting the need to be aware of the difference between the Israeli and Belgian business cultures. The feedback from attendees has been always positive.
I highly recommended her lecture to anyone interested in doing business with Israelis.
For the executive education of the University of St. Gallen I organized a study trip for executives from Germany/Switzerland to Israel. This is where we met Osnat for a business culture workshop. Osnat provided us with great insights for our onboarding, which helped us understand and reflect on everything we experienced in the following days of our trip. Her workshop was highly appreciated by our attendants and professors and we highly recommend her session for groups who want to get to know the start-up nation in a profound way.
The covered topics included: business culture, building relationships, doing business in Israel, entrepreneurship and entrepreneurial spirit in Israel
I would like to express my appreciation for two different cross-cultural workshops that Osnat Lautman planned and delivered to our employees at SkyVision Israel.
Osnat is a superb lecturer and instructor. She has a great deal of knowledge and experience working with business people all over the world; and she is an expert in bridging the gap between Israeli culture and other cultures.
No less important, she is excellent at tailoring the right, organization-specific workshop that will provide your employees with clear insights to better understand their multicultural colleagues, whether in-house or abroad. We are already seeing her workshops translate into smoother work relations and increased business productivity.
I strongly recommend Osnat’s workshops for anyone working in a global company.
I’m about to take a position with an innovative Israeli company and in the airport on the way home, I picked up Osnat’s excellent book, “Israeli Business Culture”. I highly recommend it for anyone doing business in Israel. It rings 100% true to me and gave me the background and confirmation on things that I had only vaguely been aware of. She is an engaging writer, and this succinct book should be a must read. I know this information will insure a successful and positive relationship with my new company.
My company hired Osnat as an expert cross-cultural communication consultant to help our NYC and TLV offices to bridge the cultural gap and build better and more productive relations. I recently had the pleasure to work with her, and both I and my management were delighted with the results. Osnat was very professional right from the first step. She took the time to get to know us, asked the right questions and came prepared, focusing on the end goal, delivering customer value. As expected, she’s a great communicator with a global mindset that allows her to offer great insights. I would have no problem recommending Osnat to anyone and would look forward to working with her again.
Osnat is a real professional. The content she conveys inspires everyone in the room. I enjoyed every minute!
As business becomes increasingly global and demanding, it is vital to master communication skills across borders.
Osnat, mastery of Israel-American relations and understanding of cultures, was the right person for the job. The tools and real-life examples that she used emphasized the cultural differences and the way to overcome them. I strongly recommend this workshop for everyone working in a global company.
Osnat did a great job in writing this book on Israeli Business Culture. I think it is relevant to anyone who as an Israeli deals with other globally, as well as anybody in the world who deals with Israelis. This book and Osnat’s lectures give a wide guidance on how to build effective Business relationship with Israelis, or Israelis with other globally.
Osnat writes beautiful and also her lectures or wonderful and interesting. She is doing it with a lot of passion to the world of business cultures.
Osnat Lautman is an excellent expert and lecturer in the field of cross cultural communication. I had the privilege to be on her lecture; “Israeli business culture, and the gap to other cultures around the globe”. The lecture was superb: great presentation skills with lots of practical experience and relevant cross cultural theories- Highly recommended!
“I consider it a privilege to have worked with Osnat Lautman. As one of the leaders in her field, Osnat cooperated with the program I manage at the Jewish Agency for Israel during the training process of the program. Osnat is a professional consultant and lecturer with great interpersonal skills and an amazing ability to lead a group and take it to the next step. Osnat is committed to devoting as much time as the customer needs and I was very impressed by her thoroughness.”
“We work with Osnat as a consultant and lecturer in the field of intercultural communication with the USA. As the development center of an American company, this field is at the center of our work. Osnat gave a speech to all the company employees, from developers and inspectors to the most senior manager. The lecture was to-the-point, relevant, innovative and refreshing. Osnat has audience speaking skills and conveys knowledge in an interesting manner and at a high standard. I highly recommend it for any company involved in the field.”
“I met Osnat after receiving a recommendation from a colleague. We were looking for a product that would bridge the gap between our envoys to the US (soldiers and officers in the military) and the organization’s supporters and donors in the US. We had an immediate click and I realized that after a long search I had finally found what I had seeking for a long time. In the past two years Osnat has been accompanying and preparing all of our envoys to the US (a few dozen of them already). Her workshop is the highlight of their preparation, and the feedback we get from the attendees (the envoys) and the customers in the US is amazing. Osnat has been accompanying the company in the process of team building, emphasizing the cultural differences between the management in NY and the Israeli branch.”
