Yvonne Brockhaus

"My passion are people, foreign languages and cultures - because from them we do not only learn new things about others, but also about ourselves. So stamps in passports tell the most beautiful stories for me."

As multilingual Human Resources professional and Intercultural Coach I am truly passionate about people. I spent the last 15 years in 5 countries, both working and managing the move as expat spouse. Given my own experiences and a background in Psychology + Communications, I feel that the preparation before/during/after your time abroad is key to success. Living in a foreign country can be stressful at times. Therefore, my focus is on relationship building, mutual understanding and conflict management – so in the end, hopefully the positive memories prevail.
