“To work effectively across cultural boundaries you don’t just need more information. You need intercultural competence so that you can use your knowledge to take useful action.”
Using the Linking People Framework, holistic coaching methods and proven assessment techniques, I work with you and your people to facilitate continuous growth in intercultural competence. The result is that the outcome is optimised for each person and their performance thrives.
Linking People Mastermind Groups are for those who wish to deepen their intercultural skillset and to apply their knowledge. Peer-to-peer problem-solving builds momentum through collaboration. By engaging with and learning from like-minded people, you will learn how to strengthen your intercultural competence to maximise opportunities and results.
The Linking People suite of online programmes are suitable for groups and individuals. These programmes are powerful stand-alone training tools and can also be used to enhance in-person coaching and workshops. They address various facets what it needs to thrive across cultures and to strengthen your personal skills.
I know what it feels like to be stuck and not able to communicate effectively in a multicultural context.
If you’re like many professionals and leaders that I work with, you know you need to develop a true understanding of people who are culturally different to you. In short, you need great intercultural competence but you’re not sure what that looks like. You’ve likelywondered if there was a solution that would help you and your people to perform cross-culturally at their peak. I know you want to be a confident and progressive leader, and it’s wrong that optimising intercultural competence in your organisation feels like a problem. It should be a positive growth experience for your people that opens the door to greater opportunities.
I understand that leveraging cultural diversity can seem complex and just too difficult. For the past 20 years, I have helped 100’s of professionals and leaders to overcome cultural differences and apply the power of intercultural intelligence across their organisation.
As a young girl, I simply didn’t understand why certain people were treated differently. An open and curious nature led me to approach everyone with authenticity. My interest in people led me to pursue advanced studies in law, communications, psychosynthesis and intercultural competence, during which time I worked in senior roles in training, consultancy and communications for many blue chip companies.
I became compelled to solve the problem of ineffective intercultural communication one day as I sat in a negotiation meeting between two Polish people and three Swiss people. There was something wrong – communication was stuck and I realised: ‘they think they are negotiating’. In that moment I knew that the huge potential of an authentically diverse world was untapped and unused. A crucial link was missing: intercultural competence.
I developed the Linking People approach over 10 years to help leaders and professionals to thrive across cultures.By leveraging an actionable framework, my programs facilitate continuous growth in each individual. The result is that cultural differences become an opportunity, not an obstacle.

I asked a business owner this question recently and she replied: “Accepting others as they are.” An interesting answer, but only the tip of the iceberg. What do we need beyond acceptance to use the immense potential of this diverse world?
I meet each individual where they stand right now. The Linking People Approach is both holistic and experiential so that you and your people learn to be more effective in a diverse world and produce stronger results.
