A background in anthropology, psychology, and sociology are among the various impressions that Troy Cicero leaves with his audience. Learn how his background has shaped his career --- and how Troy and MulticultuReal® Communications can benefit you and your organization today.
For as long as I can remember, my parents stressed The Golden Rule: Treat others the way you would like to be treated. It became an integral part of my core values.
I left the East Coast for the Midwest to pursue my undergraduate degree, which happens to be in Marketing. While attending college, I experienced culture shock on many levels. Since I believe that the great majority of people are inherently good and don’t offend or insult others intentionally, I realized I had an opportunity to improve the educational environment - in and out of the classroom.
I made a decision to become founder and 4-year president of a multicultural affairs organization whose mission was: To foster greater understanding and better relations among the various racial and ethnic groups on campus. It was a transformative experience that led me to where I am today - assisting individuals and organizations in creating environments of inclusion.
Putting Values to Work
In 1994, I started my own training and consulting company - Multicultural Communications. I have leveraged both my upbringing and experiences throughout my career. My “Build Bridges, Not Walls” mantra has created a portfolio of expertise in Diversity & Inclusion, Leadership Development, Conflict Resolution, Team Building, Service Excellence, Stress Management, and Motivational Speaking.
With the current challenges of the workplace, and with a keen perspective on what's at stake, we believe in the need to understand the true essence of The Platinum Rule: Treat others the way they want to be treated.
Building Synergy for Success
Remember those impressions people have about me (a background in anthropology, psychology, and sociology)? The truth is, I do believe that cultural background is very unique to who we all are (anthropology), and once understood and valued (psychology), can create a solid platform of greater collaboration within our global society (sociology), and greater productivity within our global economy (reality).

What’s in a Name? Everything.
I had a powerful epiphany in mid-2008 that resulted in a clearer vision, greater sense of purpose, and a new Philosophy: Engaging real conversations, with real respect, building real relationships, for real results. We adopted that Philosophy after years of success and consistently positive feedback from our clients. And to reflect our evolution, we changed our name from Multicultural Communications to MulticultuReal® Communications.
It’s time for real communication. It’s time for MulticultuReal® Communications.
