context is the software of the mind


Dr Mai Nguyen-Phuong-Mai started her career as a journalist. She holds a PhD in Intercultural Communication from Utrecht University, The Netherlands. She is currently Associate Professor at Amsterdam School of International Business (AMSIB), and running her own training agency Culture Move. As a professional trainer and freelance writer, she has lived, worked in, and travelled to more than 100 countries worldwide, including one year in the Middle East tracing the path of Islam through the Arab Spring. She communicates as a public figure here.

This keynote roundtable reflects part of her latest book publication: “Intercultural Communication – An
Interdisciplinary Approach: When Neurons, Genes, and Evolution Joined the Discourse”. The focus of
the roundtable was about context and the meaning of context in teaching and research. Other two
keynote speakers are Professor Ibrahim Ahmad Bajunid (President of the Malaysian Association for
Education and Director of IAB Global) and Professor Anders Örtenblad (Nord University, Norway)
