I’m Vanessa Paisley, a passionate and experienced relocation and repatriation trainer. I support people in the process of moving countries, creating a space where people can discover and live their lives to the full, gaining the maximum potential out of the enriching adventure both abroad and back home.
Solid academic background and specialist cultural & linguistic knowledge having lived and worked abroad for 25 years.
Passionate about bridging the gap / intercultural communication / cross-cultural issues.
Specialist expertise in relocating individuals and developing multicultural project teams to cooperate effectively without compromising global and diverse management demands.
For the last 12 years I have been training clients in English and German across all levels of seniority in educational establishments and industry, including professional services, hotel and catering, technology, luxury travel, media and sport.
One of the highIights of my career was playing a big part in the creation of a cross-cultural study program for the Vorarlberg University of Applied Sciences, Austria known as XPlore Russia and XPlore India. Here part-time students are required to leave their comfort zones and test themselves in authentic cross-cultural working situations. Intercultural learning beyond the textbook.
Get in touch if I can help you with any questions working across cultures or relocation/repatriation issues.
