Global connectivity, collaboration and engagement are changing the spaces and ways in which we engage across cultures. I recently purchased an intercultural transitions book for a friend who was relocating internationally with her family. When the book arrived (from the US with significant postage charges), I was intrigued to find it was a historical document. Published in 1992, the book suggested keeping in touch with friends by mailing audio tapes home! Not a mention of facebook, twitter or skype. Geography as we knew it, is history. At Beasley Intercultural, we have modified our focus accordingly towards effectiveness in globally connected, and culturally diverse workplaces.
