In Athens, Greece, Ward joined Middle East Industrial Relations Counselors (MEIRC). For ten years, he advised clients across the Gulf—Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Qatar, Kuwait and Saudi Arabia—conducting consulting projects and management seminars designed for Western and Japanese managers to help them adapt to the complex cultural, historic, and religious issues of the region.

In New York, he then worked for Hay Management Consultants and InterChange Consultants, specializing in training managers in cultural competencies for the global arena and the important contrasts between US culture and the unwritten rules in diverse cultural settings. Recent commitments include cross-cultural training, team building, and conflict resolution projects in the US, Europe, and Southeast Asia.
