Topic: Working in a Multicultural Environment

International keynote speaker Pellegrino Riccardi’s style is a seamless fusion of masterful storytelling and observational humour. “I don’t just want my audiences to understand my message; I want them to feel it too.”

Pellegrino has spent the last three decades of his life travelling the globe helping people who work in a multicultural environment interact more effectively with one another.

Born and raised in the UK in an immigrant Italian family, and now living in Norway with his Norwegian family, his multicultural background has provided him with a solid basis from which to provide his audiences with real-world practical tools and thought-provoking insights into what makes people around the world “tick”, what motivates them, and how to get the best performance out of widely recognized as being one of the world’s top cross-cultural speakers.

Try searching for “Cross-cultural communication” on YouTube and you will find that his TEDx talk in Bergen is now the most viewed talk on this topic.

Pellegrino’s customers include a wide and diverse range of international organizations from a variety of professions, including banking and finance, oil and gas, shipping, government and public sector, education, television & media, and many more.

In addition to the topic of cross-cultural communication, Pellegrino also provides keynotes on a variety of topics, including how to build corporate cultures, how to create vibrant work environments, how to get the best out of yourself and others around you, and how to create unforgettable customer experiences.

Pellegrino’s style of public speaking includes a combination of masterful storytelling and observational humour in what he calls “edutainment” (Education + Entertainment). Combined with a unique combination of powerful visual and multimedia effects, Pellegrino provides audiences with an emotional and visceral journey.

Pellegrino is also an accomplished Conference Moderator / MC, as well as highly sought-after after-dinner speaker.  He is a published author in Norway and a regular face on Norwegian national television providing his insights on Norwegian culture and immigration issues.
