TomVerghese2About the Half-Day Pre-Conference Workshop: Wednesday 23rd November 2016 from 9-12 noon


46 per cent of Australia’s population have at least one parent born overseas – this means that you are probably interacting with someone from a different cultural heritage on most days. This workshop will explore cross-cultural stories that will be provided by participants, and will examine the impact that cultural stories have on your values and behaviours.  Learn how your own cultural stories can help improve your cultural intelligence and expand your ability to connect more effectively with people in culturally diverse Australia.


Learning Objectives are:

  • An appreciation of culture and its impact on values and behaviours
  • An opportunity to explore different cultural stories from around the world
  • An understanding of how to interact more effectively with those from different cultural backgrounds


This workshop is for: Consultants, Trainers, facilitators and speakers. Anyone who works with a multicultural cohort.
