Cross cultural expert, motivational speaker, and communications, Pellegrino Riccardi has spent the last 30 years travelling the globe connecting with people. The common thread running through these many roles is making a connection with audiences through their hearts and minds, and also helping the people he communicates with to connect and interact more effectively with each other.

Pellegrino was born in the UK in an Italian family, and has lived in Norway for the past 21 years. His multicultural background, along with his first-hand cross-cultural work experience over the last three decades has given Pellegrino a solid basis from which to provide his audiences with practical tools and insights into what makes people tick and how to get the best performance out of them.

Pellegrino Riccardi is widely recognised as being one of Scandinavia’s top cross-cultural experts. His clients include a diverse range of international organisations, including banking and finance, oil and gas, shipping, government and public sector.

Pellegrino explores how to build corporate cultures, how to create vibrant work environments, how to get the best out of yourself and others around you, as well as other human-interaction fields such as how to create unforgettable customer experiences, sales and negotiations.

The son of an immigrant and an immigrant himself, Pellegrino Riccardi has recently become more and more involved in the pressing issues of immigration and refugees, helping people deal better with the influx of diverse and often conflicting cultural values.

Pellegrino’s style of public speaking is a seamless fusion of masterful storytelling and observational humour in what he calls “edutainment” (education + entertainment). Coupled with a unique combination of powerful visual and multimedia effects, Pellegrino takes his audience on a visceral and emotional journey. “I don’t just want my audiences to understand my message; I want them to feel it too,” says Pellegrino.
