The Repast Project
 
 

Cultures are different from place to place and from generation to generation, presenting challenges that can cause conflict or connection, depending on how we manage them. 

I help global nomads, international professionals, and culturally curious individuals to thrive through cultural transitions, to bridge cultural gaps, and to communicate effectively in diverse settings, so they can live, work, and lead effectively in our quickly changing, globalized world.

What can I help you with?

 

 

I'm feeling like a fish out of water.

Coaching

I help culture-crossers, global nomads, expats, and immigrants navigate cultural transitions, adjust to life in new places, and manage generational culture-clashes.

 

My message is getting lost in translation.

I help entrepreneurs clarify, create, and communicate content for websites, presentations, and marketing collateral, and learn the skills necessary to effectively connect across cultures.

 
 

Hi, I'm Emily.

I'm a coach and consultant with more than 15 years of professional and academic experience in culture and communications.

I help individuals, businesses, and organizations explore how culture impacts their identities, outlooks, and behavior so they can live, work, and lead effectively in diverse, cross-cultural settings.

In our quickly changing, globalized world, we need to be aware of our own cultures and stories so we can relate more effectively to those with cultures and stories that are different from ours.  

My goal is to help you understand where you come from and embrace where you are so you can get where you want to go.

Emily gets it!

"Emily gets it! It’s always easier when the person you’re working with fully gets the vision and objective behind the project. She helped the team a lot with organizing our ideas. She asked really smart questions that made us think of answers and points of view that we hadn’t thought of before. Along with being creative, she has a very good business acumen which made her feedback even more valuable."

-Hisham El Bassiouni, Co Founder, Henak

In our quickly modernizing, globalized world, our communities are changing and our perspectives are shifting.

Holding on to our heritage connects us to our families, our communities, and our ancestry, enriches our lives with beauty and meaning, and provides touchstones that help us celebrate in good times and anchor us when the going gets tough. 

But, for many of us, the connection to our heritage, our history, and our ancestry is complicated, tenuous, or not there at all. For others, our traditional cultures no longer align with our evolving values or fit into our everyday lives. 

And, without strong ties to our roots, we're hungry for deeper connections to our pasts, ourselves, our stories, and one another.
