Tatyana Fertelmeyster’s description of the “intoxicating” experience convinced me to attend my very first Summer Institute this July! As a beginning cross-cultural trainer and member of an intercultural couple, I hope to network with like-minded professionals. Or as Janet Bennett said, it is “substantially more” than simply networking. Training clowns in Japan! Cross-cultural communication with Disney! This sounds fascinating.

Thank you, Brett. I’ve long admired the ICI and hope tot be able to attend one day soon. This podcast gives a very nice in-depth look at the the Institutes that isn’t available by reading the materials on the ICI web site.
Thank you, too, for this podcast series. I’ve listened to all of them. 🙂
