#FIGTMembers in the News!

It’s been a few months since we’ve documented #FIGTMembers who have appeared in our newsfeeds but that doesn’t mean they’ve stopped being newsworthy!

Stephanie Ward, #FIGTMember, hit the news with her association with one of the big names in business books, Seth Godin, featuring in his latest book.  Thanks to #FIGTMember, Amel Derragui for bringing it to our attention!

It was great to see #FIGTMember Jodi Harris smiling at us from the Savvy Tokyo website where she was interviewed by Kathryn Wortley about her expat experiences, starting her business and her coaching work with trailing spouses.

We saw through various sources that one of our small business #FIGTMembers ACCESS was nominated for the “The Hague Awards” in the Sucesss category.  Congratulations ACCESS!

There was a lot of chatter on the newsfeed about the lovely gift from #FIGTMember, Lisa Liang and her gift of a free download of 'Alien Citizen: An Earth Odyssey' to our newsletter subscribers.   It was described by one twitter reviewer as 'a poignant transcultural voyage.'  If you missed the deadline, it's still available to rent.

‘A Great Move’ the book by #FIGTMember Katia Vlachos has shone yet again, featuring in ‘The New York Review of Books’ and in the Manhattan Book Review.  Well done Katia! 

And while we're talking books, #FIGTMember Lisa Ferland submitted the cover of 'Knocked Up Abroad' to the September Book Cover Design Awards. This site is all about the feedback and as you will see Lisa received some excellent feedback -unlike the cover featured below hers!

We were excited to see the launch of Sea Change Mentoring and Globally Grounded’s independent research project into transitions support at international schools being shared many times across twitter, Linkedin and Facebook.  An excellent initiative by #FIGTMembers Ellen Mahoney and Jane Barron.  If you haven’t completed the research you can do so here.

And more research in the newsfeed – this time from #FIGTMember Tanya Crossman who is looking for Adult TCKs aged 20 -50 to complete her survey here. A recent blog she shared on twitter about TCKs being misunderstood touched hearts, with retweets, likes and comments.

There were also many likes, hearts, retweets and shares for #FIGTMember Sundae Schneider-Bean, as she celebrated the 100th episode of her podcast the Expat Happy Hour.  Well done Sundae that is truly a milestone to be celebrated! 

We want to congratulate #FIGTMember Michael Pollock.  We heard via twitter that he will begin a new job in January as Executive Director of Interaction International.  Wishing you a smooth transition Michael!

We’ve started to see #FIGTMembers sharing the excitement of learning they will be presenting at #FIGT2019 Conference in Bangkok –but more of that next month!

And if you are an #FIGTMember and want us to share your news – let us know about it!
