Hi, I’m Tom Verghese.

“When I started Cultural Synergies in 1992, I was constantly having to explain to potential clients what Diversity and Inclusion was and how it would benefit their organisations. After all this time, it has now become part of the business lexicon. Although the focus and topics have evolved over the years, the relevance of this work to our world is more important than ever.”
