Visionary Thinker

Like you, global leadership specialist and international entrepreneur Bati (pronounced Bah-tee) has seen the words ‘multicultural leadership’ defined numerous ways over the years.
Is it charisma and positive thinking? Pinstripes, suspenders and red power ties? Decisiveness? Is it all about the situation? Is it meant only for the chosen few who rise to the top? Or, is there a different story under the surface?

Global Entrepreneurship

With years of real-life, in-the-trenches global entrepreneurial experience, numerous speaking engagements, and most importantly ingrained identities that are multi-local, multi-cultural and multi-national his view is radically different.
Bati appreciates, and shares with listeners, that global leadership is a moment-to-moment choice and not about title, tenure or position. Global leadership is for everyone, everyday and it's how we can live our life with principles first and actions second.

Multicultural Leadership

The Wall Street Journal highlighted him as “A Global Leader” for his ability to combine influences, practices and values of the diverse culture in a respectful and productive manner. He is known for his practical, street-savvy style which fuses real-life stories and his conversational techniques which connect with his audience at an intimate, intense and individual level.
Bati has presented at the New York Times building and has been recognized by the U.S. Secretary of State for the Global Award of Corporate Excellence. He is a global citizen by nature and he continues to work with the best and brightest in the global leadership and international entrepreneurial arenas.

International Humanitarianism

As one of the creators of the Afford To Care enterprise model that helps others in need with every product or service purchased in a sustainable and ethical manner, Bati’s penetrating conversations have been shared with audiences from around the globe, verbally delivered in both the English and Spanish languages seamlessly.
Entities such as the Rockefeller Foundation, Whole Foods Market and Texas Lutheran University have collaborated with Bati when they want global leadership development, diversity & multicultural consulting and international entrepreneurial insights. At the Global Sourcing Council Awards in New York City, Dr. Zia Khan of the Rockefeller Foundation introduced Bati to the audience as “one of the most intriguing international entrepreneurs (I’ve) ever met.”

Latin America Region

As a byproduct of his global leadership specialty, Bati created, managed and grew a global brand and humanitarian initiative between the U.S. and Latin American regions surrounded by an elite team of professionals.
As the founder of a global merchant trading company, Bati was recognized as “Entrepreneur of the Year” for the entire country of Guatemala by the Association of Guatemalan Executives, recognizing him as one of the top young international entrepreneurs regionally and globally.

Diversity Initiatives

As a result of his diverse background, Bati received the Hispanic Achievement & Business Leadership Award (HABLA) by Verizon Wireless. HABLA serves as the closing ceremony to Hispanic Heritage Month and it quickly became the leading B2B Hispanic business event in the U.S. market vetting and recognizing individuals from diverse backgrounds.
Demographic change, the global marketplace, greater tolerance for differences and government-sponsored programs are increasing the importance of diversity in organizations. More women, minorities and people with different ethnic backgrounds and lifestyles have entered the workforce. Bati knows that organizations that do not manage diversity effectively will not be able to utilize the full potential of their team members, nor to survive and grow under increasingly complex and competitive conditions.
