About Us

The Global Challenge

Considering that innovation and efficiency are international metrics used to measure success, Professional Passport’s tapping of innovative cultural forces meets the very real business needs and expectations by which international organizations are evaluated.


Since cross-cultural interaction is the foundation for fostering creativity and innovation, we help companies develop and embrace a climate in which cultural intelligence and cultural humility provide the perfect environment for inspiration and ingenuity. 


Professional Passport’s team of proven and trusted professionals consults with integrity to help companies develop a global mindset, establish effective international business practices, and work confidently and effectively with colleagues from other countries and cultures. We will empower your executives and employees with superior communication skills and effective behavioral adaptations to better build your international business ventures.​

Professional Passport’s team members come from multicultural and multilingual backgrounds, and they specifically train and coach your team to enhance global strategies. We are international troubleshooters and consultants who create customized solutions to narrow the cultural gaps organizations experience when interacting on a global scale.


During interactive sessions with clients, we oversee activities, self-evaluations, case studies and group discussions designed to assist executives and employees in properly positioning themselves within different cultures. They learn how to avoid common pitfalls when communicating across cultures, time zones and geographies while embracing best international practices.
