“There is no way to define my engagement in this process other than to call it a passion. A passion for supporting immigrants and refugees in every way possible and for enhancing communication and understanding for all people.”Joseph Macdonald, Strategic and Business Development Specialist
Welcome to Tea, Toast and Trivia.
Thank you for listening in.
I am your host, Rebecca Budd, and I am looking forward to sharing this moment with you.
I am travelling virtually across the Canadian Rockies to Calgary, Alberta, where I am meeting up with Joseph Macdonald, an innovative thinker who connects with businesses to facilitate overcoming challenges. Joseph is a brilliant communicator who fosters a sense of purpose and commitment within organizations, both private and public, enhancing opportunities for growth and influence. He believes that collaborative problem-solving encourages personal growth and increased job satisfaction.
Joseph is involved in many projects and initiatives. Today, he has joined me to talk about working with partners from the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology and three Calgary immigrant serving organizations to deliver workshops on transcultural communication skills.
What is the definition of transcultural communication? How do we acquire this skillset? What are the benefits to us personally, and to our communities? These are the questions that will be discussed today.
I invite you to put the kettle on and add to this exciting dialogue on Tea Toast & Trivia.
Thank you, Joseph, for sharing your knowledge, experience, and insights. Although we have never met in person, you have been a source of encouragement to me over the years. You remind me that we are living the story of our generation. Our stories will link to the past, influence the future, and become interwoven within the greater narrative of humanity.
