Report on Prof. Dr. Daria Berg, Visiting Professorship at SGI, Singapore Prof. Dr. Daria Berg spent five weeks in July and August 2017 as a Visiting Professor at the St.Gallen Institute of Management in Asia (SGI) in Singapore to further develop the Center for Intercultural Competence. The main aims were to direct a range of new activities in research and teaching on intercultural communication and competence. These activities include the design of a new course at the Master as part of the Asia Compact series, collaborative initiatives with two local universities and an innovative interdisciplinary research project on female cultural entrepreneurs in Singapore and China. The new teaching course and research projects will focus on intercultural competence, in particular the development of the three necessary soft skills, i.e. cultural awareness, empathy and practice. Intercultural competence includes, firstly, ‘knowing’ and understanding a culture and its history; second, ‘feeling’ the experience of a new culture and developing empathy; and third, ‘doing’ by practicing intercultural communication skills, followed by self-reflection. Further, the field work in Singapore provided excellent opportunities for Prof. Berg to explore the local field of cultural entrepreneurs, in particular female entrepreneurs in the creative industries, the art market and the literary scene as elements of the new research projects.
