I have been a Qualified Administrator of the IDI since 2004 and have used the IDI across business and educational institutions in Europe and the US. I am currently on the faculty of IDI and qualify individuals and groups to use the IDI. I have lived in Europe and Asia and found that experience and my work as a Psychotherapist to be influential in this work. I find that people's stories about their experiences with differences and commonalities to be a vital piece to their development of intercultural competence and work towards helping them deepen their awareness ad understanding of these experiences. The IDI is a crucial part of this work - whether with individuals or groups - their story is key.
