About Global Community Consulting

There is no doubt that with 21st Century technology and high speed travel the world is indeed a global community. The world has never seen such mass movement of people across borders and oceans as we see today, and increasingly we see the human effects on the planet and realise that the world we all share is actually quite small. As a consulting service that specialises in international migration, both through choice or by force, the trading name of Global Community Consulting was the obvious choice.

In addition, owner and principal consultant, Greg Turner is a strong advocate for community psychology which is the study and understanding of people in context with their culture, environment and ecological and historical influences. As a specialist transcultural psychologist Greg utilises ecological approaches that respects the dynamic nature of culture, and the issues facing people as they become exposed to cultural change, whether this is in their own country or as they migrate around the world.  

Global Community Consulting is a service for all organisations, government or non-government, humanitarian services and businesses that operate within and across the global community.
