Categories: IT, C-Suite, Mid-Level, Cross-Cultural, Lead Across Cultures

Launch Your Company's Presence in the US with Confidence

Our expat preparation program has already been delivered to over 2,000 professionals, predominately from India preparing to move onsite in the USA. We have delivered this program to teams, groups, in person and online. We can tailor this program to your needs ranging from 3 to 20 hours per program.  

Our program supports you through your international relocation needs.  

We have programming options for before leaving your home country and upon arriving in your new home, USA.  

We can work with you as the expat assignee and any spouse or children (over the age of 8) that are present in the family.  

We also have partners who can provide guidance with your investments and financial planning while moving abroad.  

In addition, we guide your assignee to understand the importance of keeping in touch with his team or network work back at home with an eye toward repatriatization (for those who are not relocating permanently).  

We currently deliver this program live online on Zoom, and are working for online self-paced options with 1:1 live online coaching. 
 

We are honored you are considering allowing us to be a part of your career and learning journey.  

Course Curriculum

The below is a sample outline with all content. We can adapt it as per your or your assignee's relocation or expat needs.

I had a 1-1 discussion with Jennifer on US culture training and it was immensely useful. She provided me with practical tips and tricks which cannot be found easily. Her inputs helped me a lot during my US Trip as well. I consider her as my go-to-person for any consulting or mentoring on US culture and communication.

“The US Culture Training was quite helpful for me. In fact, I was able to put much of the session into practice here in the US in real time. Starting from a handshake, food habits, public transport, usage of words, work culture, dress etiquette, meeting etiquette, and lot more. The bonus part is that she still keeps in contact with everyone and sends newsletters based on the season, climate, functions and festivals here in the US. This gives us enough heads up about the upcoming things/events in our pipeline. Jennifer is a true helper. I even reached out to her via email/calls for some of my personal issues/questions and she helped to the best of her ability. The course is a real value-add and I highly recommend it to people who are ready to start their stint in America.”

This is the best and most interesting orientation I have ever had. I feel its importance after reaching the US. Especially to know about accommodation, leasing agreement, coins usage; like I didn’t know what a dime is. I just wanna thank Jennifer for spreading awareness about US culture in India. All the best for everyone who attends this session.
