Radek Walentynowicz is a cross-cultural trainer and consultant with nine years experience. He is the author of several publications relating to cross-cultural business communication and has delivered training sessions in most EU countries, plus Ukraine, Russia and the USA. His main interest is in acquiring foreign languages – German, Dutch and English for example – and he's also a chess fanatic. It's not all about the intellectual, though – he's also into physical activities such as tennis and skiing, though not usually at the same time. In his student days he used to spend his summers hitchhiking around Europe. Nowadays he's swapped his thumb for a bicycle, and heads out on two-wheeled adventures in neighbouring countries such as Belarus. Radek will tell us about the colours of culture.
