The future is global and global is multilingual. The Global Podcast is a conversation meant to engage and empower those curious about success in foreign markets, global brands, and all factors that have created a language industry worth over $50 billion. People and technology are critical in a future where we really understand each other. Hosts, Renato Beninatto and Michael Stevens, bring their curiosity to conversations with the most interesting people in the world.
Renato Beninatto is the coauthor of The General Theory of the Translation Company and leads Nimdzi Insights, a think-tank and consulting company that focuses on growth strategies for localization leaders. A former owner of an LSP, executive in some of the leading companies in the industry, and a linguist in his own right, this Brazilian-Italian-American citizen can't shut up in Portuguese, English, Italian, French, or Spanish.
Michael Stevens has over 10 years of experience in the localization and IT industries. A well-networked entrepreneur, Michael’s main interest is in connecting and bringing people together. He not only enjoys learning about a company’s exciting ideas and developments, he also has a keen ability to add value—and fire—to new and innovative thinking.
