Richard Hill

In this episode, I Interview Richard Hill.

Richard is the author of “We Europeans” (1992), “Euro managers & Martians”, “The Art of being Belgian”, “Great Britain Little England”, and a number of other books.

Learn how Richard explains why (he thinks) the French are an “autistic” nation (don’t worry, he nuances it to “self-absorbed” later in an excellent story!

And why the Belgians are unassertive and pragmatic people who have a developed way to compromise.

And finally why the European Commission (EC) is not paying as much attention to cultural differences as it should.
