SAMENVATTING

Het leven als expat is een zeer forse stap uit je comfort zone. Dat ondervond Helga Evelyn Samuel toen ze als expat haar geboorteland India verliet en eerst naar Oman en later naar Nederland vertrok.

In Headwinds (Engelstalig) beschrijft ze openhartig en met humor haar ambities én de vele tegenwind die zij met haar gezin moest trotseren. Tussen de regels door trekt ze lessen uit haar ervaringen voor iedereen die werkt of leeft met expats en hun familie: managers, HR-professionals, partners, scholen, en zelfs buren.

 

Helga Evelyn Samuel steps out of her comfort zone when she begins her life as an expat spouse. Over the course of her overseas moves from India to Oman and then onto The Netherlands, she encounters several headwinds.

Written with honesty, humour and vulnerability, Helga describes her aspirations, her move abroad with her small family, the squashing of old dreams and the birthing of new ones. She takes you on a journey through her experiences and weaves in nuggets of wisdom that will benefit anyone looking to grow stronger through life’s difficult circumstances and thrive in any new, unfamiliar place.

David Livermore, PhD, Thought Leader on Cultural Intelligence and Global Leadership:
Expats need to read this before they go abroad–to help them anticipate what’s to come.
Expats in the midst of an assignment need to read it as well–to put language to the joys and challenges of life overseas.
Friends and families of expats need to read this–to improve the way they support them.
Western cross-cultural practitioners need to read this–to gain practical understanding of how other cultures differ in day-to-day life.
– And companies who send and receive talent to and from around the world need to read this book–to gain insight into things they may otherwise never hear.
This is such a fun, engaging read, while practical at the same time.
