In 2017, there were 57 million expatriates worldwide. While the number of corporate expat assignments is growing steadily, these assignments are expensive and fail all too often for avoidable reasons. Many expats move with minimal preparation, have unrealistic expectations and are left with insufficient resources to deal with the practical and emotional implications of a move. The result: failed moves, stressed families and damaged careers. Author Katia Vlachos strongly believes that these professional and personal expat assignment failures are avoidable -- with careful forethought and planning. In A Great Move, Vlachos provides a systematic, step-by-step guide for deciding, planning and carrying out any international move.
