LETTER FROM SIR HERMAN OUSLEY

The South Asian Opportunity - A Training Resource

This is a training resource with a difference. It is fun, interesting, comprehensible and people friendly. In addition it is factual, educational, awareness raising, culturally challenging and offers opportunities for business development and improved relationships with Britain's ethnic minorities.

Specifically its focus is the South Asian comrnunity in Britain. There is a wealth of information that both fascinates and informs. Even when you think you know most of what there is to know about Asians, there is more. A certain mystique is unravelled through use of the resource and the stereotypes of the Asians and their traditions are cast aside or confirmed.

In keeping with the enterprising label that is often attached to Asians. the training resource is the product of careful planning and meticulous execution.

The training resource will be invaluable to anyone and their organisation seeking to develop, incorporate and include Asians, as part of organisations equipping themselves to survive in an increasingly diverse cultural environment.?
