    About the Speaker:

    Amel Derragui is a business and marketing coach, a speaker and the founder of Tandem Nomads, a podcast show and entrepreneurship platform designed to empower expat partners and help global nomads turn their career challenges into successful portable businesses. After a career in sales and then advertising, she quit her job to join her husband abroad and launched a marketing consulting business that she ran living across three continents. Six years later, discovering a real need for expat spouses to find their own source of fulfillment and financial freedom, she launched Tandem Nomads. 

    We are looking forward to seeing you and welcoming Amel Derragui to Boston.

Mariam will challenge participants to start using the MOLA as a way of thinking about their diverse international experiences, identities, cultures, languages, races, nationalities etc., not just to see who they are, but also to learn how to show to the rest of the world, their often ‘messy’ and overlapping identities.
