Have you ever found yourself living or working for a longer period of time in a country different from your own? If so, you will certainly have felt something like:
- Uncertainty as you don’t exactly know what is waiting for you in the new environment
- Anxiety concerning your ability to deal with all of the new impressions and tasks in an efficient manner simultaneously
- Excitement because of all the interesting aspects of your new life although this can quickly turn into a feeling of being overwhelmed
You will almost certainly also have had a lot of questions even more so when you moved to the new location with your family. If you were lucky, you had something called an ‘expat package’ where competent people in the target country took you by the hand and showed you all you needed to know. Nowadays however, these packages are either non existent anymore (as you are more likely to get a local contract even as an international hire) or somewhat reduced so that you still need to do many things on your own.
Having lived in and moved to many foreign countries myself, I very well know what it is like and how you might feel. As a multilingual coach and consultant, I am more than happy to help you over the hurdles and accompany you on your journey, so that it will be an enjoyable experience for you and for your family.

In addition, if you are reading this and you happen to be moving to Switzerland or just arrived in the country, please join me at the Welcome Event of International Link, the non-profit organisation created by the Chamber of Commerce of the Canton Vaud to facilitate the integration of foreign businesses and international employees into the local environment. The event will be held centrally in Lausanne on the 1st of May.
The goal of the Welcome Day is to officially welcome international newcomers and to get them acquainted with the Lake Geneva region. You will receive a first introduction and I will be guiding you into the Swiss culture and its different facets.
Looking forward to meeting you there!
