GLOBAL COMPETITIVENESS / DIVERSITY / MULTICULTURAL TEAMS
It's a small, small world: The Globe is Shrinking. Is Your Business Expanding?
Walt Disney had it right all those years ago … “it is a small world.” And guess what? It’s getting even smaller! Mobility and greater access to multicultural markets is heralding in exciting,
new opportunities for organizations willing to raise their diversity IQ. In this powerful and cutting-edge presentation, Doug Lipp shows that regardless of whether your organization is selling globally, the face of the customer is changing.

Organizations must adjust— or be willing to lose—in their global battle for market share.
“Cultural fluency is the global language of success. – Doug Lipp
