Is globalisation about sharing a global culture, or designing new cultural borders? Is cross-cultural awareness a new skill, a differentiated form of collective intelligence we should learn, and teach?
Peter delivers a lively talk on cross-cultural differences and their impact on our daily personal and professional lives.

French educated, Italian speaking, English lawyer, Peter Alfandary describes himself as a mildly schizophrenic Brit. After 30 years practicing as an international lawyer, Peter decided to turn his lifelong fascination with different cultures into a full-time occupation – training and coaching professionals and senior executives on cross cultural management skills. He passionately believes that the need for cultural intelligence is increasingly critical as we move inexorably towards greater globalisation.Film and jazz buff, avid reader, Peter travels the world advising businesses and lecturing on cross cultural skills. His passion for his subject is only equalled by his other passion, Huguette, his Citroen 2CV which he proudly drives around London.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx
