I have.

The call for papers, at this massively valuable expat conference (I’ve been 5 times) closes at the end of August. They want new blood, new research and something different to add to their usual mix of experts, old hands and old favourites (that’s me, folks). I’ve put in my bid to talk about starting to write your story. What about you?

In Houston 5-7 March. Don’t miss it. I’ll be there. Remember www.figt.org

Attend a conference

February 28, 2008

I’m so excited. On Monday I go to Families in Global Transition in Houston. This is my fourth trip to the conference and the conference’s 10th anniversary.

It is also 10 years since my first expat conference, when in 1998, I went to Paris for Women on the Move. It was there that I met Robin Pascoe and it was there that I first really ‘got’ why I felt like I did to be a global nomad.

If you, like me, enjoy learning from the gurus, and being among other people who ‘get it’ maybe you should try one of these conferences. Do you attend any already? If so, please tell us which ones and don’t forget to add their contact details.
