Recorded during David’s time at the ASEAN PR Summit in Bali, this week’s InTransition podcast considers the importance of bridging the gap between Eastern and Western communications. Focusing on the eastern approach of listening and understanding, the potential for collaboration and economic growth among the East and West increases.

Discussed in this podcast:

  • Bridging the East and West
  • Listening -> Understanding -> Speaking -> Dialogue
  • The future of communications is in technology and the future of technology is in these youthful nations
  • The quality of communications in the ASEAN region
  • Problems facing public relations and communications

Combining the philosophical differences leads to strengthening ties between nations and creating the opportunity for growth throughout the southeast Asian region.

Talking to speaker Anne Gregory, professor of Corporate Communication at the University of Huddersfield, we learn insights from the conference as well as the future of communications in government.
