Early experience of modern slavery reporting by businesses is revealing that SMEs are unaware and unprepared for demands to tidy up their systems. Next week InterMondo releases our first report on what small and medium enterprises need to know about modern slavery. #modernslavery SMEs

Highly topical example of one of the cultural challenges of engaging professionally in other cultures across supply chains and managing culturally diverse workforces: cultural attitudes & behaviours around sexual harrassment. https://www.theguardian.com/world/2017/oct/17/anger-as-chinese-media-claim-harassment-is-just-a-western-problem #managingacrosscultures #MeToo

Then it was champagne, now it's a question of prosecco: brand, soaring popularity, affordability, producers' livelihoods and deep cultural differences around what defines a food or drink, come together in the legal tussle between Australia and the EU over Australian producers' naming rights. http://www.afr.com/business/agriculture/prosecco-sales-jump-to-60m-but-legal-fight-looms-20171214-h0547s

InterMondo will shortly release a white paper examining how small and medium enterprises (SMEs) generally, not just small retailers, are 1) unaware of Australia's impending Modern Slavery Act and 2) unprepared to provide answers on slavery in their supply chains to their business partners with reporting requirements. this Stay tuned. #slavery #supplychain

It's not always about grand ethical gestures. It's about doing that 'one thing' that makes a difference. And in that 'one thing', we discover how, across cultural differences, we share so much in our values and behaviours. https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/just-one-thing-anna-ridgway/ #ethicalbusiness '#crossculturalmanagement #culturalchange

Succeeding in your business goals when operating across cultures includes adjusting your cultural expectations when it comes to negotiating, and closing, deals - without compromising on your core purpose. A slightly lower-than-expected outcome can be an outstanding one. #crossculturalmanagement

When corporate clients who've relocated to Melbourne say 'Australia is just like the UK/USA', one thing we do to encourage them to activate their cultural awareness and start seeing all that's beneath the surface is to visit a local park like Yarra Bend in the middle of Melbourne. And look at the murals & signs in Wurundjeri. #crossculturalcommunication #crossculturalmanagement

Would you like a probiotic interactive enzyme-enhanced product with your Belt-and-Road supply chain?
