Enrichment versus Culture Shock (sponsored contribution)

9th July 2009, Comments 0 comments

New country, new culture, new language - but no social network. These changes appear easy, except for those living them - Expats abroad face these challenges on a daily basis.

Consultus GmbH in Germany, a specialist in customised assignment and intercultural trainings for expat families, has more than 20 years of experience in the larger relocation field. With the launch of the subsidiary company - Expat Cuisine- , a “tasty” addition is offered to round off the menu of services for the expatriate population in Frankfurt, Germany. Theme-specific cooking courses are supplemented with a variety of expat events.

The twofold focus is always, country- and culture-specific infotainment combined with ample tools and opportunities for the participants to create a new social network abroad.

“… for example our scheduled culinary course on the local Hessian cuisine is not only fun, communicative (and tasty!), but engages the participants in an interactive way with each other and everyone takes home inside information on their new environment” says Hilly van Swol-Ulbrich, managing partner of Consultus GmbH.

Registration is open for the following events, all taking place at allmilmö designwerk in Frankfurt am Main:
Nespresso Tasting on Thursday, 10 September
Barbecue for Newcomers on Saturday, 19 September
Hessen Unique on Saturday, 17 October
