About Speaker Erin Meyer…
In today’s global business world, where teams are spread across the planet and most of our communication takes place virtually, how do we work effectively in the face of cross-cultural complexity? Erin Meyer, author of The Culture Map, explains how to dramatically increase business success by understanding—and making the best possible use of—cultural drivers.
Meyer is a professor at INSEAD, one of the world’s leading international business schools. Her work focuses on how the world’s most successful global leaders navigate the complexities of cultural differences in a multi-cultural environment.
Working in Africa, Europe, and the United States prompted Meyer’s study of the communication patterns and business systems of different parts of the world. Her framework allows international executives to pinpoint their leadership preferences, and compare their methods to the management styles of other cultures.
She has taught thousands of executives from five continents to decode how cultural differences are impacting their work and the strategies for improving their international collaboration.
Meyer has published articles in Harvard Business Review, the New York Times, and has appeared on CNN. She was named on the Thinkers50 on-the-radar list as one of the top business thinkers of the year.
