Thriving Abroad supports one of life's greatest challenges: international relocation.  It guides and inspires employees and their partners who are relocating internationally for work through a three-part framework designed to create personal and professional success abroad.

Louise Wiles and Evelyn Simpson are the creators of the Thriving Abroad programmes, Relocation Ready and Thrive designed to support expatriates as they navigate the transition experience and create expat lives they love. Louise and Evelyn’s expatriate experience totals over 40 years. They have relocated as employees, expat partners and parents. Using their experience as expats, coaches, personal development professionals and trainers their mission is to support and empower international assignees and their partners to proactively create lives abroad which align with corporate/organisational objectives. Louise and Evelyn began working together in 2012 when they researched the experience of over 300 expat partners located around the world. The resulting “Career Choice and the Accompanying Partner Surrvey Report”, was nominated for an Expatriate Mobility Management Award (EMMA) in 2012 by the Forum for Expatriate Management. Their work has been published in the International HR Advisor, Expat Focus, Expatica, Expat Careers and on their own blog at ThrivingAbroad.com. They have presented on Global Mobility topics at conferences around the world.

Amazon reviews:

'A must read for anyone thinking of moving abroad. I wish I had had access to such a book when I moved to the UK. Highly recommend. Well written, structured, clear and easy to read.'

'No more move/international relocation without this great handbook! Louise and Evelyn wrote it for both the assignee AND their partner because the decision for this international mobility world should be a joint one. It is a practical guide for coping with reality and helping you make your decisions - and I could not agree more "there always is another decision to be made at some point". So even as an "experienced" expat spouse (following my husband for the past 13 years around the globe) I just love working with it! Thanks for writing "Thriving Abroad" and supporting us throughout our amazing international journeys!'

 

'This book is perfect for anyone thinking of taking an international assignment, or anyone who employs staff working internationally, or anyone involved in global mobility provision, either in house or supplier side...

Written by people who have years of assignment work under their belts, their knowledge through experiences shines out of the book... I was curious if this book would help assignees / transferees / global nomads (each relocation provider has a different title – we should just call them ‘people’) to make better decisions about relocating. Whether it would prepare them better, help them really understand it is not like going on a long holiday.

‘Thriving Abroad’ didn’t disappoint in any areas of my curiosity.... This is such a practical book written by international assignees themselves I cannot see how anyone can argue that it is anything other than impeccably useful.'
