Talking Cultures currently delivers bespoke workshops for Kent Study Abroad Students which aims to build on students’ skills and attributes to further enhance their contextual and cultural dexterity within an Intercultural Competency Framework (ICF).   

Talking Cultures is also available to professionals (members of university staff and the wider community) looking to further enhance their understanding of cultures within and outside a global working environment.

We also offer expertise in intercultural and interpersonal communication to medical and healthcare practitioners.
