MANILA, Philippines - Imagine a workshop conducted in total darkness.

The internationally renowned "Dialogue in the Dark" workshop will be held in the Philippines.

Dialogue in the Dark workshops offer a unique opportunity for corporate leaders and management to test and participate in an experience that will have a profound impact on how they do things. Blind trainers will be taking the participants through a set of inventive team activities in complete darkness.

The workshop is aimed at provoking a change of perspective and helping people understand diversity and inclusion.

"Dialogue in the Dark" will be showcased to various ASEAN corporations at the Asian Institute of Management in Makati City, from August 1 to 6, in cooperation with the Dialogue Social Enterprise.

During this week, AIM will offer two Dialogue in the Dark workshops per day for 24 participants per session, plus a Dinner in the Dark experience for 17 participants in the evenings.

Dr. Andreas Heinecke, Founder and CEO of Dialogue Social Enterprise, would also be present during this unique workshop week in Manila to facilitate the sessions.

“We are very proud to launch Dialogue in the Dark in the Philippines and to blend inclusion, social entrepreneurship, and executive education,” Heinecke said.

"AIM’s mission is to mold the next generation of development leaders and change agents. When we talk about leading in ASEAN, we need to have leaders who have an inclusive mindset to be able to bring about genuine development across all communities," AIM President Steven J. DeKrey said.
