To be a world famous artist, one needs exceptional talents. Paul McCartney is one of such people. His adventure, which started with Beatles, is still continuing at the highest level. His most recent project is the album Kisses on the Bottom. In the video of the song Valentine of this album Paul McCartney is singing the song in the background, while Natalie Portman and Johnny Depp are “vocalizing” it by using sign language. It is the most impressive performance that I have witnessed lately.
The first time that I viewed this video, some of our business meetings came to my mind. While the founder of the company with the business vision, being now somewhat aged and usually not so powerful in foreign languages, sits in the background to observe the meeting, the energetic young managers speak in various languages with the managers of the visiting potential acquirers.
If you want to acquire a foreign partner, then you have to encourage your employees to learn foreign languages. You too will need many people like Natalie Portman and Johnny Depp in our contemporary world, which is turning fast into a small village with many languages.
