Expat Academy Why you can trust Expat Academy

We push ourselves hard each day to deliver exceptional service to Expat Academy Members and we proudly play to our strengths: integrity, confidentiality, and compliance.

We regularly host the largest Network of Global Heads of Mobility in existence. We have nearly 60 Global Heads of Mobility who meet with us every single month in a safe environment to collaborate and discuss everything on their minds.

 We take anti-trust and competition law exceptionally seriously. From personal experience of working in the financial services industry we would never encourage you to share sensitive company information directly with others on an on-line platform (this could risk the reputation of your organisation and your career!). Instead…

  • Our benchmarking service ensures you get the data you need in an anonymous compliant fashion.
  • Our huddles ensure your agenda items are carefully discussed without stepping over a boundary which could be considered illegal in some jurisdictions.
  • Our team always find the answers to your problems using our extensive network of experts without disclosing your identity. You’re in safe hands with us.

Every year the Expat Academy Community gets stronger. In fact, we are predicting an avalanche of new members in the next few months. Personal recommendations bring new members knocking at our door every day and we choose to invest our team’s time and energy in getting to know you personally.

We’re looking forward to a really bright 2023 with the entire Expat Academy community. Amazing events and networking with amazing people across the Globe.

Thank you for trusting us to make your life as a Global Mobility Professional that little bit better.

If you love us as much as we love you, please do leave the team a recommendation on LinkedIn. These brighten our day!

p.s. We work with all levels of Global Mobility professionals. From those starting out in their career to the more seasoned professional. We have thousands of individual Expat Academy licensees…that’s a huge number of brains to pick!
