Australian Alumni of the Philippines: Dia Lacaba (University of New South Wales)
“Living in Australia for two years and studying with people from all sorts and different cultures gave me a more global perspective. I think that helped me immensely in my work. As head of international business for Human Nature, I deal with different distributors from other countries on a day to day basis. That entails understanding how other people from other cultures think…”

Dia has over ten years of experience in the consumer goods and services industry working with both international and Philippine companies.
