Location: London Bloomsbury Gallery, 34 Bloomsbury Street, WC1B 3QJ
The business leaders of today face extraordinary complexity, rapid change and increasing diversity in their markets and workforces. When customers and employees feel confused, frustrated or misunderstood, they become disengaged and they choose the competition. This issue multiplies in a multicultural environment. 87% of CEOs consider the combination of culture, engagement and leadership as top priority. Unfortunately they know they are not prepared and solutions created before globalisation cannot provide optimum results.
Solution: Understanding how cultural backgrounds AND personality types influence behaviour, thinking and expectations is the strategic advantage of high-performing companies and successful managers. That is Cultural Intelligence, the science of measuring and leveraging personal and cultural differences.

Expert opinion about the framework
“The Platinum Rule® model spans all cultures BUT it is important to remember that people around the world are socialized into a certain preferred way of behaving and The Intercultural DISC model explains why. It is a practical framework based on the most researched cross-cultural models to explain how national, cultural values and beliefs shape our behavior. This is the ideal tool in today’s fast-paced, globalized world where the new generation of business people and leaders need to be culturally intelligent and adaptable without being experts in 100s of different cultures. Intercultural DISC takes the Platinum Rule® into deeper layers of understanding people so they can be treated the way they want and need to be treated.”
Dr. Tony Alessandra, author of The Platinum Rule® and The NEW Art of Managing People, Top 50 Marketing expert in the world, Hall of Fame speaker.
"Bamboo Strong is exactly what today’s savvy business leaders need to manage in today’s complex, multi-dimensional markets!"
