Her speech discusses the way American has mastered exporting its culture through a long list of brands. She does, however, believe that Africa can experience economic growth and prosperity by improving the way it is perceived around the world and showing people what its different cultures have to offer.

Rachel Botsman's keynote focuses on the new currency: trust. She introduces the concept of individuals trading things like skills -- from making sushi to building a deck. People all over the world will be able to connect and use their knowledge and skill set as a currency.

These business globalization keynote speeches offer insight into how the business world is globalizing itself outside traditional economies and markets.
