Watch Our Story

“Aperian” is derived from the Latin word “aperire,” which means “to open” or “to provide access to.” We feel this name reflects the essence of our mission as well as the spirit of our client work.

The “openings” we create include:

  • Self-reflection and fresh personal insights about one’s own assumptions as well as the “why” behind the behaviors of others.
  • Practical border-crossing skills that enable better communication and flexible team leadership across national boundaries, distance, and time zones.
  • Team-building and organization development to leverage the full capabilities of a diverse and globally-dispersed workforce.
