How I started and continue receiving work in cross-cultural coaching and the importance of having an updated LinkedIn and professional digital presence.
Ten years ago, my first cross-cultural coaching client – a US company – contacted me to work as a cross-cultural training consultant for one of their clients who had just relocated to the Caribbean. With this company, I started working first with European expatriates who were relocating to the Caribbean for their jobs. Although my previous work involved promoting an awareness of cultural differences and how this awareness impacted successful business transactions and relationships, this was the start of my long-term career in cross-cultural coaching.
Do not underestimate the importance of presenting yourself and your skills, especially on digital platforms, including social media, membership directories and on your website. The opportunities are out there, and even during a global pandemic there are opportunities.
