About Me

I'm David Livermore

I’m insatiably curious about how people think and behave. I’ve had the ideal life for someone with as much wanderlust as me.

I never left the continent until college. But even as a kid, I was fascinated by people, places, and cultures. Once I started traveling internationally, I was hooked. I still get a rush from landing in a new place and discovering life there.

My professional life has been ideal for someone like me. I’ve spent the last couple decades researching cultural intelligence, global leadership, and myriad related topics like curiosity, innovation, and the power of problem-solving to get along.

I’ve led organizations and teams with people from a diversity of backgrounds, forcing me to ensure my research findings are practical.

My work has taken me to more than 100 countries, giving me the chance to learn from executives at places like Google, Alibaba, Qatar Airways, BMW, and the list keeps going. I’ve dragged my family with me whenever I can. There’s nothing like seeing the world through your kids’ eyes.

My hope is to help all of us be better humans. Whether I’m working on a new book, preparing for a speaking engagement, or consulting with an organization, I want to ensure that I’m helping us finding unity in our diverse ways of being human.

Together, we can all strive to be better humans, and make the world a better place for all.
