Why International?

Our work builds bridges of understanding between cultures.   Those who have cultural intelligence are more likely to succeed and thrive in their roles and lives.  We believe this world of positive global connections is full of possibilities.  The diversity of thought we can bring to a problem will enable us to innovate, to create and to develop solutions to complex problems in, what can be, an increasingly volatile and uncertain world.

Who we help

We have delivered intercultural and cross cultural training, coaching and presentations in Australia, New Zealand, China, Papua New Guinea, UK and the USA. Global teams have increased their understanding of each other and improved their work effectiveness.  Individuals –from CEOs to engineers, lawyers, bankers, accountants, sales, IT and many other professions, have benefitted from our training.  Family members (partners and children) who are critical to the employee’s successful adaptation receive training or coaching tailored to their needs.
