Anoushka's KeyNote

Cultural Intelligence 



The Competitive Tool of the Future Cultural Intelligence, CQ, is the ability to engage, navigate and effectively work in culturally diverse teams and organizations. Opportunities: The world is becoming smaller, the economic powers are shifting from West to East and from North to South, the Western world is aging, and emerging economies like India, China, and Nigeria are rising. The future employee and the future customer are significantly different from the one we know today. Global trends are creating new and gigantic opportunities, but how equipped are today's leaders and businesses equipped to unlock these opportunities?  


Benefits of CQ: Cultural intelligence is a tool that helps leaders and their organisations to:  


Appeal and engage an increasingly diverse and mobile talent pool.

Understand the new and affluent customers and gain diverse market share locally and internationally.

Go above and beyond compliance and CSR index to become a brand of choice.
