What is CQ, and why is it important?

CQ—cultural intelligence or cultural quotient—is the measure of a person’s capacity to function effectively across cultures, both in terms of professional and personal relationships.

The Philippines has globalized from an agrarian supplier to the Asian regional headquarters of almost every conglomerate in the world. The country’s societal and professional landscape is so diverse—whether they are fellow countrymen from another local province or expatriates from a different continent altogether—that everyone is required the ability to thrive in a multicultural environment. A low CQ is an unnecessary disadvantage you can’t afford.

What is CQPH?

Cultural intelligence is already a prevalent practice in the western world, but Cultural Intelligence Philippines (CQPH) is the pioneer provider in the Philippines.

Formerly known as Manila For A Day, a private tour company, CQPH is now a broader initiative by Dustin Ancheta. His propensity for business, degree in Consular & Diplomatic Affairs, continuous tutelage from historical and cultural experts, and a decade of experience in tourism and various industries have culminated in CQPH—the very first Philippine venture to address the need for the propagation of cultural intelligence.
