Daniel is originally from Switzerland. A career spanning four decades in the global hospitality-industries led him to live and work in 8 different world metropolises, turning him into a true global citizen. in addition to his core industries of tourism and events management, he has amassed experience across a wide range of sectors. That is how he collated such substantial expertise about people and nations, about organisations and enterprises, and about how they all conduct their business across borders and across cultures. As he says, “I guess it is quite natural that I eventually found my way into cross-culture.” All of this translates into a wealth of CQ that Daniel Tschudy has to share.
