About This Weeks GuestKiran Beersing-Vasquez

Kiran Beersing-Vasquez

A 20-year-old student of mixed background. Born in the UK and moved to Belgium at age 9.  Attended an international school in Brussels, which had 9 different language sections, and students from all over the world with similarly mixed origins. Now back in the UK and on his Year in Industry, in a Mechanical Engineering degree. Mother and Father originate from Guatemala and Mauritius respectively.

His 3 tips for becoming more culturally competent are:

  • Take as much interest as you can, and don’t be afraid to ask questions.
  • Approach things from a neutral perspective as much as possible.
  • It’s OK to be ignorant, as long as you try to understand the other culture.

I'm passionate about Cultural Difference. I have been helping organizations save time and money when they work Internationally for the last 19 years. I have had the fortunate opportunity to hold lectures, workshops, and consulting projects on this subject World Wide. It has made me understand my own culture much better, and appreciate the differences around the world.
I have a Master's Degree in Organisational Psychology and have lived in the USA, the Netherlands and, currently, in Belgium.
Thank you!
