Ignite: Developing intercultural competencies and soft skills for the future-proof professional

How can the idea of emotional expression across cultures be explored? What is the Golden Ticket Project? How can a culturally aware international office team explore racism and discrimination? All these questions and more will be covered in a quick-fire presentation format called Ignite, where the presenters have 20 slides to cover in their five-minute allotted time, followed by audience questions.
