Amel Derragui is a TCK, business and marketing coach, speaker and podcast host at Tandem Nomads.

Amel often speaks for various international organizations such as the IMF and European ministries of foreign affairs to provide guidance on how to use entrepreneurship as a solution to dual career challenges. Her work is featured in various media such as Forbes Magazine and Global Living Magazine.
