In the show today I decided to contact three people who would describe themselves as intercultural trainers in order to find out more about what that entails and how they came to do this work. Predictably we ended up talking about much more than this so we will start with Lucy Fogarty, an Irish trainer based in London who has developed training that is based on cartoons. Why images I asked her?
Then I talked to Lisa La Valle Finan in the US who had a word of warning for the young.
And finally I talked to Brett Parry, an Aussie based in the US who was able to answer the question, what do you do on a Monday morning and much else besides.
So we’ll start with Lucy Fogarty and her Culture Buff games which are absolutely fun! If you want to have a go at one of Lucy’s games then you only need go to CultureBuffGames.com where you can sign up for a free trial period.
For our next segment I talked at length to Brett Parry who is an intercultural trainer based in Chicago and I basically asked him to tell me all about his work. I could think of no better title for this segment than absolutely intercultural! So now you know what you need to do to get a job in the intercultural field!
In our final segment of the show I talked to another US based intercultural trainer, Lisa La Valle Finan who had some interesting observations to make about the way young people tend to approach intercultural training. Consider yourself absolutely warned!
