Our diverse range of services aim to help you or your business to communicate with the people you need to relate to – clients, business people, institutions, members of the Australian Asian community.
Culture plays an important role in how people communicate and relate to each other. If you or your business is unaware of the values, cultural dimensions and expectations of the people you want to communicate with then misunderstandings will occur and you are vulnerable to failure.
If you want to successfully engage with people from Asian and other cultures, you need Cultural Intelligence.
Our key services
Research, including social and marketing research, among Asian communities in Australia
Cultural awareness training for managers and customer service personnel
Many businesses and not for profit organisations need to communicate with Asian communities or to gather information about attitudes, beliefs or opinions held by community members.
At Cultural Intelligence, we specialise in conducting social research in Australia’s Asian communities. We use our specialist knowledge to recruit Asian Australians to participate in focus groups and surveys to gauge perceptions about various issues, identify gaps in services, test messages and investigate any other matter of opinion or belief.
CI also conducts research to support marketing campaigns. We can support campaigns to promote products or services of behavioural or attitudinal change.
We work with your business to understand what you need to know and then we tailor our research program to meet your needs. After conducting the research we analyse the results and report back to you the information you need to know.
Cultural Intelligence offers a range of training programs for organisations including:
- managing multicultural teams
