Curious about Culture invites readers on a journey of introspection to discover the multitude of cultural influences that shape their view of the world.

Improving cross-cultural engagement starts with understanding yourself. You will uncover your own cultural drivers that will help you cultivate meaningful cross-cultural conversations. We all have multiple facets to our identities and some of them are likely to be stigmatised. The author encourages readers to be curious and dive beyond the apparent cues when engaging across cultures, highlighting the pitfalls of drawing upon assumptions and defaulting to stereotypes.
