Dr Yvonne Sum, CSP, author
This is a valuable conversation in the context of connecting cross-culturally. Yvonne has worked in some very different cultures including many across Asia, the Middle East, America and Australia and Africa – and is an expert in global connections and collaboration. A fascinating conversation as Yvonne and Kerrie discuss cultural differences to respect, such as views on family life and swapping business cards.
Parents often tell their kids “don’t talk to strangers” but Yvonne, as author of “Intentional Parenting” also teaches her kids How to talk to strangers.
Tune in as Yvonne shares a side of the Middle East that she’d never have seen if not for the time spent there and the connections with locals.
It’s such an enriching experience to sit and learn from women who’ve lived through the change from travel on camels to jumbo jets, and life in tents to high-rises.
