H&M Navigating Chinese Backlash (and other Geopolitical gossip you should know) – Nimdzi LIVE! Episode 09 (feat. Iryna Rogova)

Our guest today is Iryna Rogova

I write at https://irynarogova.medium.com/ on Marketing, Localization, and Geopolitics.

Accessibility advocate. Passionate about globalization and geography.
