Founder Claire Pisani is a strategic thinker with unique insights into both Asian and Western cultures and how they can interact well. She knows the importance of being culturally aware in an extremely diverse business environment.

claire Claire has a solid corporate background and understanding of business issues today and has seen the preventable damage that can be caused when language (and culture) can be misinterpreted in business. Claire is both creative and analytical, with strengths in managing projects, budgets, resources and complex logistics as well as writing, language and fine arts. Her work experience covers finance, writing, education and the arts in her roles at ABC Television, ABC Radio, Fairfax Digital and as an English Tutor both here and abroad.
Throughout her career Claire has worked with individuals from Hong Kong, China, Indonesia, India and Thailand through her career, her studies and as a transition assistance educator at the Villawood Detention Centre. Claire holds a Bachelor of Music Education from the Conservatorium of Music with an English and Music major and MBA specialising in Finance and Accounting. Claire was the winner of the prestigious CEW scholarship during her MBA studies. After graduating, Claire was invited to be on the Subject Selection Committee of the UTS MBA program.
These days Claire works with non-native English speakers who live or work in English speaking environments. She also believes that Australians, Americans and other English speakers who wish to do business with Asia, or manage staff in Asian countries, have a responsibility to understand more about the cultures they wish to connect with. Her goal is always to help, to facilitate, to enable and empower.
Claire's work can help large corporations and small business to reduce the amount of time spent and money wasted on conflict or misunderstanding caused by cross-cultural miscommunication. For individuals, her work means the opportunity to gain confidence, strengthen relationships and achieve potential.

Claire Pisani (nee Deness) (1998) MBA UTS

Claire was the 1998 recipient of the CEW Scholarship, completing her MBA at the Graduate School of Business at UTS.
At 21, Claire ran her own music studio, accredited by the Conservatorium of Music and was being offered occasional professional engagements as a singer. Claire demonstrated a flair for writing and research and over the next few years wrote regularly for local press, Encore Australia Magazine, Radio National, and the Arts section of The Australian. Claire then moved in to a series of roles in Television production at ABC and SBS where she worked on some popular and high profile productions such as Foreign Correspondent. Perceiving a natural conflict between creative staff and those who manage the resources, Claire became a Business Manager and achieved some success in liaising between the two. During this time Claire began studying her MBA at UTS and was awarded the CEW scholarship for 1998.
After graduating, Claire moved away from the Arts and TV and worked for a time as a Sales Consultant in Personal Finance. This in part led to her later appointment with Fairfax's F2 Interactive Network as Product Manager of their personal finance web site MoneyManager. In this role, Claire focused on business development with potential partners, further developing her taste for negotiation. In 2001, Claire moved to Hong Kong. Returning to Sydney, Claire has taken some family time out of the workforce. Recent projects in 2003 include community work with detainees at Villawood Detention Centre and Project Management for a housing renovation.
Claire has an MBA (Finance Major) from UTS and a Bachelor of Music Education from the Conservatorium of Music (Sydney University). She is an occasional speaker for the UTS Graduate School of Business, sits on the UTS MBA Subject Selection Committee and is a proud mum.
