Cross Cultural Communication in Technology, News Media & Film

“We look at the Web as being our basic power plant, kind of like electricity, so the Web and communicating in this fashion is second nature to us now. It’s not like we go brochure, television, mail. It’s Web, and then everything else. It’s social media first, and everything else.” – Ted Leonsis, owner of the Washington Capitals

The panel,"Cross Cultural Communication in Technology, News Media & Film" will address the various opportunities (and disadvantages) that one can count on when communicating cross culturally via the web. Our panelist will openly, and organically, discuss ways in which you can make communicating online useful to you no matter where you are based, your orgin, or your culture.
