X-Culture 10-Year Anniversary:
A Decade in the Making!

It’s amazing how fast 10 years have gone by!
And it’s even more amazing to see how much we’ve evolved together as an X-Culture Community. The year 2020 is X-Culture’s 10-Year Anniversary and we are looking forward to celebrating the decade with our X-Culture Family.

This year, due to the Coronavirus pandemic, we had to postpone the X-Culture Global Business Week in Singapore during which we had planned to celebrate the X-Culture 10-Year Anniversary. However, we don’t want to miss the incredible opportunity of celebrating this wonderful decade with our X-Culture Family!

Therefore, on May, 29 a big (virtual) event is going to take place from 9:00 AM NY EST to 3:30 PM EST. We have scheduled several presentations and panel sessions with prominent representatives from the International Business community and, of course, with the X-Culture Founders, Leaders and Professors.

The attendance to the event is free and open to all the X-Culture Students/Dr.s/Coaches/Head Coaches/Global Business Week attendees and their families.

However, in order to take part in the “X-Culture 10-Year Anniversary Celebration” you must register here and fill in the form. The registration is necessary to receive the X-Culture 10-Year Anniversary Certificate of Attendance (we will ask you to confirm your presence on the event day).

We invite you to post pictures and comments on X-Culture Facebook page any time during the event with the #XCultureAnniversary hashtag.
