CAN THE SOCIAL WEB SOLVE THE GLOBAL CORPORATE DIVERSITY CHALLENGE?

Something about their communication engaged me. I usually lag on messages sent through LinkedIn because there’s an extra step to reply. Something about this email said you’re a fool if you don’t at least look at this content. And then they appeared in my gmail, where I prefer to interact. Why didn’t they send it […]

A GLOBAL MOBILE MOTHER’S DAY

Global mobile citizens, naturally, have a different Mother’s Day experience than they would in their home country. First, it’s not celebrated on the same day. Last week was Mother’s Day in the Czech Republic. It passed with a whisper. Nothing like Mother’s Day in the United States celebrated at mythic proportions, fueled by the capitalist […]

LIBERATION DAY

We are celebrating Liberation Day here in my new home in Prague. It is a day filled with symbolism for me. I am familiar with the history of this day in this country. The people of this nation had their lives back. Had survived a dark time. Could rebuild. That is just what this city […]

Now Edtech is […]

The Global Mobile Worker – A Solution to the Talent Gap

A consistent theme at #WebSummit 2015 was the war for talent. Every co-founder cited getting good talent in the door as one of their greatest challenges, and one most didn’t expect.

The Technology Dance

There is so much technology dancing on my laptop that sometimes while everything is loading I see the screen jiggle a little bit. Whether in terror or anticipation I can never tell.
