Sharing stories about living, working and parenting abroad.

Join me here for a live chat next Wednesday.

A hobby artist, Jessica @knitsfromabroad has built a connection to her home that she can take with her anywhere. Knitting and sculpting have allowed her to meet new groups of people and better connect to the different art and hobby scenes in all of her postings abroad. She believes that finding a common hobby is a great way to build a sense of belonging as an expat.

Originally from Dallas, Texas, Jessica has spent her entire adult life abroad living in Germany and the Netherlands.

12 PM AEST – Melbourne

Focus on Repatriation – Returning ‘home’ after living abroad is all about reconnection

“Whilst this all sounds straight forward it is often a move that catches even the most seasoned of expat by surprise.
Those who think it’s ‘easy’ have probably never done it!
A recent study found that 70% of returning expats said their self-esteem was impacted, whilst as many as 85% experienced challenges reintegrating into the local business community and workforce.
With repatriation challenging both our personal and professional lives, coupled with the current global volatility, the need for planning has never been more crucial.”

At our July FIGT Melbourne event, we will be joined by Margot Andersen, founder of Insync Network Group. Our discussion will look at the planning and strategies to ensure that you arrive well | work well | live well upon your arrival return ‘home’.

Virtual book launch for Rhoda Bangerter’s 

25th of June 4.30 PM AEST

Holding the fort abroad

Rhoda is a coach for solo parenting expat mums in long-distance marriages – a topic she knows intimately after 15 years living a global life in an intercultural marriage, while raising third culture kids (TCKs).

There will be an input by Vivian Chiona, the founder and director of Expat Nest, which offers an e-counselling service for adults, parents and teens navigating the international life.

Jo Parfitt from Summertime Publishing will also say a word as we celebrate – with friends from all over the world – the publication of this much-needed and long-awaited book.

“You moved away to be closer together…

But now you’re further apart than ever…

Your partner’s job opportunity in another country seemed like an exciting idea, but lengthy work assignments mean you’re holding down the family fort – alone.”


Signed books, notebooks, & Swiss chocolate!


This book launch is hosted via Zoom – a sign-up link will be provided in your email confirmation from Eventbrite.

New WEBINAR series

“Reinvention in time of COVID – From trapped to inspired”

The webinar includes few activities to work on perspectives with which change is perceived.

True to our concept of Adapting, I am excited to offer a new webinar redesigned to the context of COVID.

The focus then shifts to an assessment of constraints and opportunities these uncertain times have brought us. Attendees will work on a skill drill and will leave with a project to work on: her/his personal or professional reinvention roadmap.

I AM PRESENTING at FIGT 19! Bangkok 26-28 April 2019

This year the conference has moved to Bangkok, Thailand, the city where my second life started. It all resonates with my Reinvention path. It’s a kind of milestone for me to be there and be able to give back after having harvested the fruits of my learnings.



Reinvention Testing Room:

How to Rethink Our Life or Career
Through a playful and reflective session, attendees will discover new perspectives to consider their situation. They will find inner values and skills which will enable them to find fulfilling ways to reinvent themselves personally or in their profession.
