LECTURER – Professor Lily Arasaratnam-Smith

“Lily’s experience and insight about this subject was comprehensive and I was able to benefit greatly as a leader and person from these lectures. Not only does our church constantly do missions, but with our ever increasing staff and changing volunteers, her lectures about low context and high context communication have enabled me to lead better, by understanding each person’s ability to communicate on different levels of context. From what I have learnt, it has made our organisation run smoother and I am a lot more conscious of others in my communication” – Ps John Rewald, Senior Pastor of Oasis New Life Centre, QLD

  • “These lessons came to mind several times in the following years as I transitioned between living in Italy, Australia and Singapore, trying to make sense of each new intercultural situation. Because of my intercultural training, I was able to identify learning moments, examine and understand conflict situations caused by intercultural differences, and identify my own reverse culture shock upon returning home. This gave me a greater sense of control over my experience and the possibility of learning from and talking about it” – Evelyn Chew, Singapore National University.
