A message from Grant Hall, Founder & CEO of League Cultural Diplomacy (LCD)
League Cultural Diplomacy (LCD) is an international event management and consulting agency that uses the tools of cultural diplomacy to help our clients achieve success abroad or across cultures.
When I left my job in the Australian Department of Prime Minister & Cabinet in June 2014 to start LCD, my vision was to create an agency built upon a large international network of partners and advisers which would enable it to deploy it’s resources in any corner of the globe.
After registering the business in Adelaide in 2014, I set off overseas in order to develop the networks upon which LCD is now built, and strengthen my international business skills – particularly my Asia capacities. Having established a base in Phan Thiet in Vietnam in September 2014, LCD commenced client work in late 2016. The projects that LCD has subsequently been engaged with reflects my original vision for the business, and we’ve now serviced clients in Australia, the USA, Hong Kong, Jordan and Vietnam, from the corporate, legal, education, arts, sport and startup sectors, involving events or initiatives in Australia, Hong Kong, mainland China, Vietnam and Indonesia. It was a thrilling time to be living in Asia, which is something I reflected upon in a blog post titled Sensing the rise of Asia.
In late 2017 my family and I made the decision to relocate from Vietnam back to my home town of Adelaide in South Australia. I recently announced this decision, and my reasons for doing so, in a LinkedIn article which drew a considerable amount of positive attention, attracting thousands of views, and hundreds of likes and comments; (you can click here to view the article).
I am now available for in-person consulting sessions in Adelaide, and you can click here to book in a time.
I look forward to meeting with you in Adelaide in 2018!
