The Culture Exchange


Learn by doing and reflecting in real-time


The Culture Exchange is a collective of trained facilitators who use use experiential and improvisational learning methods. 

 We custom-design and deliver experiential culture change programs for individuals and organisations navigating complexity and change.

We provide training, facilitation and consultancy to help individuals and organisations:

  • adapt and thrive in changing environments
  • effectively diagnose complex challenges; and
  • skilfully intervene with creative solutions. 

How we work

“Stories are powerful. They can change the world for better or worse. We are surrounded by stories and use them as a form to engage with people who are like us and who are different to us…”
