By age 5 Ted's parents had already exposed him to 10 different countries, cultures and languages.   He lived abroad for three years, lives in a cross-cultural family himself and has now managed to travel to 23 different countries on 4 continents as part of his training profession. He is an honours graduate of Wilfrid Laurier University, where he was recognized by the Spanish embassy in Ottawa for exceptional academic achievment, the TESL Ontario ESL teacher certification program, and the University of British Columbia’s Centre of Intercultural Studies.  He has delivered hundreds of training sessions all over the globe for the last several years, including in Canada, U.S., Mexico, Brazil, Ireland, Czech Republic, China, Japan, Austria and India and has also taught at Fanshawe College.  In addition, Ted works with a consortium of experienced consultants and experts in a variety of disciplines, located internationally – a group of veteran, senior leaders who come together to work on projects where they can create synergies for companies needing a little help.

Ted mixes the theory of Intercultural Communication with interactive small group work, discussion, debate, real-life examples and great teaching stories from his wide experience whenever he trains. He equips the participants with easy-to-apply strategies that they can take back to work the next day and immediately use.  His proprietary model, called Solve the Culture Puzzle! leads participants to ensure they are applying what they learn immediately, to gain results that help them and their company save time and money. 

Ted’s cross-cultural training and speaking environment, whether working with a senior management group, speaking to an HR professionals forum, or coaching a sales team, is always open, fast-paced, and enjoyable, with lots of laughter and learning and the endorsements say it clearly:
