David Livermore, Ph.D.

I’ve always been fascinated by cultures. So it was a joy to share some of that fascination along with my research in 'Customs of the World'. Cultural intelligence is an ongoing journey for all of us, myself included.

Dr. David Livermore is president and partner at the Cultural Intelligence Center in East Lansing, Michigan, and a Visiting Scholar at Nanyang Technological University in Singapore. Before leading the Cultural Intelligence Center, he spent 20 years in leadership positions with a variety of nonprofit organizations around the world and taught at several universities. Professor Livermore completed his Ph.D. at Michigan State University, where he studied international education and sociology.
