Moving Across Cultures: Bringing Empathy and Expertise to the Evolving Global Family

When a conference is as great as #FIGT16NL you want to remember all that you learned and were inspired by during the Keynotes, the Concurrent Sessions, the fast-paced Ignites and at the Kitchen Tables. It’s impossible to attend every session and for many it is impossible to attend every conference. This book, compiled by the Parfitt Pascoe Writing Residents, will bring the event back to life complete with its experts, its insights and conversations. You know that this, the third book in the series, deserves a place on your bookshelf.

It remarkably captures the emotional ups and downs, the spirit, the warmth, and the essence of the 2016 Families in Global Transition Conference. Perfect for anyone who couldn’t split themselves in half to attend every session.

I have run my own business since I was 25, largely because I am a serial entrepreneur and cannot survive without the variety provided by being self-employed. After 10 years living and working abroad, we returned to England in 1997 and Summertime Publishing was born. In 2005 we moved to The Hague, then to Malaysia in 2014 and now back in the Netherlands. I have developed a business based on writing, publishing, mentoring and teaching what I know. I know how to write, how to publish, how to run a business despite international moves, how to network and how to live abroad. I find countless opportunities to change lives through my writing, teaching, speaking and mentoring and love nothing more than to 'share what I know to help others to grow'.
