Vivian holds a Master’s Degree in Cultural Anthroplogy from the University of Melbourne. She was fortunate to receive a Commonwealth Government scholarship to study at Sichuan University for 2 years, where she consolidated her mandarin and began her work to foster mutual understanding between Chinese and Australian people.
Vivian spent 15 years based in Shanghai working in consumer market research, listening and talking to “consumers” from behind focus group mirrors, in homes, online and on riverbanks for multinational clients. She also engaged with the local government and Women’s Federation to bring local and expat communities together via cultural activities.
