Culture Hack

How do you currently understand culture? What role does culture actually play in how we communicate, work and innovate? Culture encompasses tradition, philosophy, mindset, behaviours and how we view the world. So in a globalised world Cultural Intelligence is more important than ever. Through interactions, experiences and dialogue we can find commonalities across borders and draw inspiration for new approaches to societal progress.
