Nilüfer Boysan-Dietrich and Mitsuyo Rikuhashi

Nilüfer and Mitsuyo know each other for more than ten years. Although coming from different countries, Nilüfer and Mitsuyo discovered and shared many similarities in their cultural backgrounds while working together. They both have experienced living in Western countries and were confronted with various cultural challenges. They have learned to visualise and analyse these differences. The outcome of their working together as a team became something unique. They developed a method of intercultural training based on empirical studies combined with life processes they went through. Within their own interaction during the training, they are able to demonstrate the essence of intercultural communication in a practical and effective way. Since they became professional partners in 2002, they have successfully worked on numerous projects together.
