Through over 25 years of designing and executing transformative educational experiences in Asia, Latin America, Africa and the Middle East, we have built and refined tools, systems, and processes for effective cross-cultural leadership.

Our Approach
The Partnership Process

Our Services

The services we provide work together to foster an overall shift in the culture of your organization towards more effective, profound and ethical engagement across cultures. Each partnership starts with a conversation to clarify your goals and vision as an organization. We then identify and develop the scope and sequence of our working relationship, which may include any of combination consulting, training and program development. No matter how large the scope of our collaboration, we consider each partnership an investment in the long-term success of your institution.
