Being Yourself in Business with Chris Hodgson | C-Suite HotSeat E08
Chris is the global managing director at Mother Tongue. Part of the Omnicom Group of marketing services companies, Mother Tongue provides transcreation, translation, insight and content services for global brands. He began his career in localization nearly 20 years ago, as a French and German graduate. Soon realizing he had found his calling at the junction of branding and language, his work has revolved around cross-cultural communication ever since. Mother Tongue seeks to deliver brand voices that are authentic and credible locally, as the best way of driving international engagement. As husband to a Peruvian wife and father to two young Anglo-Peruvian daughters, he also finds he frequently takes his cross-cultural work home with him!
