INSPIRATION CATALOG FOR EXPATS
A move to a new country can feel overwhelming, exciting, and isolating. It often is a complete emotional rollercoaster that can include smaller or bigger cultural shocks.
There are many explanations why a move from one culture to another can be extremely taxing and confusing. And the reason why you make that move can significantly impact the emotions that come up before, during, and after the move.
We here at Finnwards understand that because we ourselves have done international moves for a variety of reasons. We’ve moved on our own to pursue our educational or professional goals. We’ve also moved as trailing spouses. We’ve moved without children and we’ve moved with them.
The range of our personal experiences as expats and our professional experiences hiring international talents in Finland have sparked us to create services that have both a global and a Finland-specific focus.
Our services vary from self-guided online courses to personal, one-on-one coaching. Choose what suits your needs.
