About the Author
Chris Smit

I'm passionate about Cultural Awareness Training. I have been Teaching Culture for the last 12 years. I have had the fortunate opportunity to hold lectures and workshops on this subject World Wide. It has made me understand my own culture much better (Dutch), and appreciate the differences around the world.
I have a Master Degree in Organisational Psychology and have lived in the USA, the Netherlands and, currently, in Belgium.
Do get in touch with me should you want to ask me anything on the subject. I promise I'll get back to you personally.
Thank you!

Chris Smit
