In a digitally interconnected world, the ability to connect and build impactful relationships across borders has become an essential skill in business. The key to forming cross-cultural connections is to approach it with an open mind and build genuine curiosity about other cultures.

In an interconnected world, Emotional Intelligence (EQ) plays a pivotal role in the way we interact with others. The ability to understand our emotions as well as relate to that of others is a crucial skill that can improve the way we interact both personally and professionally. EQ is the ability to understand, use and manage our own emotions while also recognising and empathising with the emotions of others.
