BENEFITS OF CROSS-CULTURAL CAPABILITY - In the 21st century, people can choose to live and work anywhere on the planet, so you must embrace everyone if you want to attract talent and investment and grow sustainably. Western cities everywhere, now have large Asian populations providing opportunity to build cross-cultural capability that will help improve relations with Eastern trading partners. 

BENEFITS OF DIVERSITY IN DECISION-MAKING - Everyone in your nation, city, business or community has belonged to different cultures in their lifetime – national cultures, community cultures, school cultures, sport club cultures, religious cultures and family cultures. There is value in diversity of thought; value that can lead to innovation, connections, prosperity and global recognition.

Stepping Up: lead culture change for diversity and growth in the Asian Century - Chapter One is here

Their views are reported in Stepping Up along with frameworks, case studies, models, personal stories and advice about how to adapt the underlying assumptions about 'who we are' and 'how things get done'. Change requires vision, courage, adaptation and acceptance.  

Pamela is visionary, innovative and thinks global. She offers endless examples of how to move forward to be a 21st Century global thinking entity. Her ideas inspire, delight and help make possibilities become realities.

Programs that help you step into the shoes of others 

'Going Global or Accessing Asia?' - A program for boards and executives

Learn from people who have lived and worked in Asia. Build cross-cultural capability to know how to work more effectively with Asians in your city, workplace or community. 

Travelling to Asia on holiday does not equip you to know what people from Indian, China or Korea need from you to feel valued and accepted in your city, business or school; you can only know when you have lived in their culture. Going Global or Accessing Asia helps you to prepare to be more effective when doing business in Asia or working with Asian people in your local area. Each Asian culture is as different as each Western culture. Appreciation for difference is enormously valuable to those who want to create an environment for all to flourish.
