"When I joined I attended a Global Heads network meeting organised by the Expat Academy. Everyone was very open about their policy’s and tips were shot over the table back and forth. Emma and James have a world of IM knowledge under their hats and share this openly. Members of my team are able to join other meetings managed by Expat Academy and I always encourage them to do so. A large network and sparring with your peers from same, smaller and larger programs will make the difference to you as a professional and for your firm."
