Why attend this Expat Workshop?
Being an Expatriate or evolving in a multicultural environment has its challenges. Indeed, it takes a while to adjust to another culture, and it can be incredibly frustrating when assumptions about the similarities between cultures are proven untrue. Numerous international corporations capitalize on the success of their homegrown talents by relocating top executives and middle management to an assignment in subsidiaries abroad. With the increased international connectivity stemming from globalization and the internet, many people feel that they know exactly what they will face when they relocate to a new land. However, knowing that you can find fish and chips, French pastries or Chilean wine in your destination does not mean you will immediately feel at home. The preparation to become an expatriate and to embrace a new culture also expose to new opportunities. Through the experience, people have the choice to gain the skills required to strive in a new culture or to struggle and waste their energy fighting the change.
