The concept for Papilia was born out of my passion for travel and curiosity to experience cultures of the world in a mindful and responsible way.

As an avid traveler, I spent hours researching cultural nuances and etiquette to feel confident and comfortable in any business or leisure setting. After speaking with many travelers, I found a client base who identified with the same issues I experienced.

Papilia provides customized cross-cultural communication and international etiquette training or coaching for clientele who want to build confidence, influence their audience, and set themselves apart from their competition. 

Our ultimate goal is to help you spend your valuable time making lasting impressions. So, what are you waiting for?
