A Proven Process Based on 35 Years of Experience

When I started as an analyst I thought that if I just explained all the cool findings, showed great graphics, and described why the results mattered, the business people would be as fascinated as I was... and surprise! They were not.

So I set out to find why that was the case and how to communicate with business professionals in their own language, and after 1000s of meetings, many mistakes, and a lot of trial and error... I’ve developed an effective approach.

And business will need LOTS of translators. McKinsey reports there is a severe shortage of people who can speak both languages effectively, which will result in a demand for 2,000,000-4,000,000 more skilled translators by 2026.
