I was born and raised in Argentina, then I lived eleven years in Spain working all around Europe. Finally, three years ago I moved to Canada. And yes, my Latin background impacted my professional career.
This session is mostly sharing what I’ve learned during these past years. How I learned to get the most from sentences like “You have a very strong accent; I don’t think you will fit this meeting. These are Senior Executives” or “Wow, your accent is amazing, our leadership team will love it!” In both scenarios, I manage to move from frustration or surprise to "let’s focus on our business."
And it’s not only about language and accent; family, culture, and even food and drinks are a part of the story. Espero que nos veamos en la sesion!
