Intercultural Competence


Visiting Professor BEALE Alison
Director of University of Oxford Japan Office


‘Intercultural competence’ is the ability to communicate well and work effectively with people who have different values, beliefs, and cultural backgrounds to your own. What does this mean in practice? Why is it important? And how do you develop intercultural competence in your daily life? In this talk, Alison Beale will draw on her own experience studying different cultures and working in different countries to provide insights into how you can develop your global mindset and foster the skills, behaviours and attitude to allow you to interact successfully in international settings.


Apply from the registration form by noon on Thursday, Oct 26.
