“I was managing an international cross cultural engineering team for a multi-billion dollar oil and gas project. The head office is based in Queensland & our primary contractors were based in Asia. During FEED development significant challenges to project success were identified, including those based upon the cultural differences in work attitudes and behaviours between ourselves and our contractors. Culture Resource Centre was requested to provide direction and assistance to our engineering & project management team to address these cultural challenges. Culture Resource Centre easily addressed these concerns through practical workshops & individual consultations, when required. Furthermore, the workshops created a clear awareness within the team of cultural work differences & provided practical tools that were able to be utilised immediately in the workplace. The benefits of CRC’s approach was demonstrated through the improved communications and engineering designs that emerged after the workshops. I would not hesitate to recommend CRC to assist with overcoming project issues that originate from cultural differences”.

“Culture Resource Centre has delivered sessions to North Coast TAFE twice in recent years. Recently through our General Education and Employment Services Faculty, on behalf of the Adult Migrant Education Programme Skill, to 40 or so participants. Previously, through Organisational Workforce Development and International Services, to administration staff and teaching staff. Sessions ranged from half to full day. The experienced trainer whose passion for the subject material is imparted to the participants. The feedback from all sessions was very good to excellent. Participants felt the trainer had extensive knowledge presented in a fresh, dynamic way. It is worth noting that Culture Resource Centre has taken Cultural Awareness Training to a level whereby the dynamics of cultural competencies has cultural awareness as an underpinning skill. The training reveals those dynamics and gives participants a pathway to understanding and utilising those necessary for cultural competencies. I would have no hesitation in recommending the Culture Resource Centre to other organisations”.
