Stiles to lead workshop in intercultural communication

Written by 

A two hour workshop in Intercultural Communication will be taught by John Stiles, a Jackson County native who is the U.S. Director of International Relations and Development for Hannam University in Daejong, South Korea.

The workshops will be held from 10 a.m. until noon on Sept. 15 at the Senior Services Center in Sylva and on Sept. 16 at the SCC Cashiers Center.

From his extensive travel to all seven continents and more than 40 countries, Stiles will share his passion and his own attempts to actually live and communicate inter-culturally.

“If a student wishes to broaden his mind and experience, sincerely taking the time to listen to and have empathy for people who are not like us — that is, ‘foreigners’ — then it will be challenging. The rewards, however, are amazing, fulfilling and exciting,” said Stiles.

$20. The program is presented by the Plus 50 Program at Southwestern Community College. Register at 828.339.4000 or  www.southwesterncc.edu.
