Mack shared his views on the limitation of the language and demonstrate how the language may affect the way people think and communicate, and discuss global communication beyond culture and nationalities. He start his lecture from demonstration of 20 English accents as an ice breaker.


As a part of this lecture, the audience enjoyed the Disney-like musical performance of OMOTENASHI JOURNEY, a group of talented dancers or singers.


“OMOTENASHI” means warmth, understanding, respect, gratitude and kindness, and is also known as the slogan for the 2020 Olympic Games in Japan. The musical project aims to introduce the hospitality of the Japanese culture to the world through the diversity. This concept is consistent with Mack’s key messages on global communication beyond language.
