Durian: The Key to a place called the "Confucius Sphere"
Cultural Tip: Just eat the "King of Fruit."
Someone once described the Durian experience as "Eating custard in an outhouse." However, the special friendship and relationship building which comes from allowing your comfort zone to drop, will pay off ten-fold.
As an Interculturalist, I specialize in intercultural understanding and personal cultural faux pas.
I have traveled extensively, surfing and living internationally in Asia and England.
My cultural experience includes; England, Germany, Spain, Belgium, The Netherlands, France, Scotland, Wales, Japan, Okinawa, Korea, Philippines, China, Costa Rica, Mexico, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Russia, Trinidad, India, and Jordan.
I am a Master Diversity Trainer for "Enhancing Respect and Trust in the Workplace," and "Working with the World."
My speaking experience includes keynotes on diversity, recognition, hospitality, safety, and customer orientation. I am always open to new speaking opportunities.
I love art!
