Exciting Things Coming this Fall!

As you you've probably noticed, my summer production schedule for The Worldly Marketer Podcast has been less than weekly so far, and August will continue to be sporadic. But never fear, dear listeners! I intend to get back to my weekly schedule in the Fall, and I already have some very interesting guests lined up.

Whether you're a localization vendor, looking to buy localization services, or you simply want to keep up with the latest trends and issues around localization, be sure to mark your calendars:

LocWorld38 will take place in Seattle, WA, from October 17th to 19th, 2018.  This time, the theme is Digital Transformation, and the line-up of speakers looks amazing.

I'll be attending all three days of the conference, including the PreConference on October 17th. In fact, I've been asked to moderate one of the sessions in the Global Business track on October 18th (cf. Main Conference Program).

If you're planning to attend LocWorld38, now is the time to register: early-bird rates apply until August 28th .

Hope to see you in Seattle!

Last but not least, in case you missed episode #113 of The Worldly Marketer Podcast:

I'm working on an exciting new project with Ulrich Henes (President of the  Localization Institute) and his team in advance of the next Brand2Global conference, which is being planned for Spring 2019. Together, we're producing a branded audio show aimed at the global marketing community: the  B2G Podcast. The show will feature a series of global marketing leaders who drive international revenue for some of the world's top brands.

My role on the  B2G Podcast is not only that of producer but also of moderator. I'll be engaging our expert guests in conversation, and inviting them to share some of their most valuable learnings with the global marketing community.

We're planning to launch the B2G Podcast this Fall, so stay tuned for updates!
