Global Culture: Diversity in the Age of Globalization

7 Strategies for Expanding Your Cultural Awareness and Sensitivity

If you’ve ever had an Italian espresso at Starbucks served by a Hispanic barista with Brazilian jazz playing in the background, you know exactly what I’m talking about – Global Culture. Driven by the democratization of technology, globalization is in full swing. Goods, people and ideas are moving seamlessly across borders. Cultures are changing. Blending. How do you keep up with the changing pace of technology and this Global Culture?

The answer is found in Linguistic Solutions’ president and CEO, Christopher Hurtado’s presentation Global Culture: Diversity in the Age of Globalization. Here’s what one audience had to say about the presentation:

And you provided numerous resources for people who wanted to continue to learn after your presentation. The feedback was overwhelmingly positive, including that the presentation was interesting, insightful, refreshing, and enjoyable. Thank you so much for your wonderful presentation.
