I am delighted and a tiny bit nervous to announce that I will be guest speaking on a panel (for the first time), at the 20th Families in Global Transition (FIGT) conference in the Hague.

The FIGT is a forum for globally mobile individuals, families, and those working with them. They promote cross-sector connections for sharing research and developing best practices that support the growth, success, and well-being of people entering new cultures worldwide.

The FIGT 18 conference is a three-day event jam-packed with presentations, workshops, interactive discussions and keynote sessions. Bringing people together from different cultures and sectors: corporate, small business entrepreneurs, international schools, relocation, diplomacy, non-profit, academia, media and the arts.

Watch a short video from FIGT’s founder, Ruth van Reken about FIGT and how it got started.

I will be joining the Early Bird Entrepreneurs Forum panel on Friday, March 9 at 8:15 am alongside Amel Derragui from Tandem Nomads,  Stephanie Ward from Firefly Coaching and Lisa Ferland from Knocked Up Abroad. We will be discussing how we created our own businesses, making it flexible and location-independent,  what were our challenges and the best way to succeed.
