August 02, 2021Categories: Communication, Public Speaking, Relationships
The Toastmasters Podcast with Bo Bennett, Ryan Levesque, and Greg GazinThe Toastmasters Podcast is like a radio talkshow featuring interviews with Toastmasters usually featured in the Toastmaster magazine. But unlike a radio show, a podcast is on the Internet, and available, for free, to anyone in the world with an Internet connection, and a connected device capable of playing audio.
[28:50] Globalization means we live on an increasingly shrinking planet. Our grandparents could hardly have dreamed of communicating with clients and colleagues half way around the world. Whether by phone, email, Zoom, or social media, most of us interact with people from another culture on a regular basis. And the truth is—it can be challenging! Fear not, if you listen to today's show, it can get a bit easier.
Dean Foster has been speaking, writing and consulting for more than two decades on the nature of culture and its role in society, work and politics in a globalizing world.
Dean is the founder of DFA Intercultural Global Solutions and founder and former Worldwide Director of Berlitz Cross-Cultural. Based in New York City, Dean has played a central role in the development of the field of cross-cultural training and consulting.
Dean's article, Breaking Language Barriers: Top 10 Tips for connecting with anyone in the world, appeared in the June 2021 issue of the Toastmaster magazine.
