American born Russell moved to Finland in 1982 for a one-year stay, and liked the place so much that he is still here today. He works as a journalist, lecturer, copywriter editor and language consultant. His books about Finland have gotten excellent reviews in the media.
Why are Finns known as forest folk, high-tech geniuses and efficient workers? Are Finns proud of their history? What is Finnish food? How about Finns and alcohol? Does Finland have its own music and dance? What is it like to do business with a Finn? These are some of the questions Russell Snyder will deal with in his lectures.
