Benny Lewis, National Geographic’s 2013 Traveler of the Year and author of Fluent in 3 Months, presents "Connecting Across Cultures Through Travel."

After traveling the world non-stop for over a decade, Benny Lewis is an expert at blending in and seeking out the hidden gems in a city. In his presentation, he’ll prepare you for the thoughts that will cross your mind when you get to a new country, such as: How do I find out where the locals eat? How do I make friends if I don’t speak the language fluently? How do I engage with locals?

Lewis will arm you with a proven set of strategies you can use the moment you get off the plane to transform your experience beyond that of a superficial glimpse to a truly unique local experience that will make a world of difference.

Lewis is from Ireland and currently resides in the U.S. He has traveled the world and immersed himself in local cultures. He speaks seven languages fluently, four others conversationally, and has dabbled in dozens more.
