I’m not a tourist

Visiting the Expats fair in Brussels

CinquantenaireExpatica, the organisation specialized in resources and communication   for expats in Europe (Belgium, but also the Netherlands, France, Spain, Germany and Switzerland) today organized the second “Lifestyle Fair for Internationals” in Brussels, in the beautiful Autoworld Museum in the Parc du Cinquantenaire.  Not many exhibitors, not many visitors either, but a friendly and cozy atmosphere in one of the most fashionable venues in the Belgian capital.

We met some exhibitors and had promising contacts with some of them.  And we participated to a seminar of Lars Sudmann, Managing Director of Life Balance Masters.  It was a lady of the Toastmasters organization who recommended this speech to us and I strongly thank her for that. Because, Lars Sudmann is not only a brilliant, funny and fascinating speaker, but he has interesting things to share.  A lot of things.  And he shares them with a conviction and a good humor that are contagious.

Life balance ? As a job search coach and trainer, I expected the usual (and rather boring) discourse about the difficult balance between job and family life, as if both were divided by an iron curtain more unbreakable that the old communist one…  But, I was wrong.  Lars Sudmann considers life as a whole, as the articulation of all dimensions of your existence with a special attention to your personal goals and life vision.

We were pleased not only by the friendly attitude of the speaker, but also by the multidimensional and scientific approach with which he analyzed the life balance.  And also by the tools and tips he is proposing to the participants.

So, we had a really great time and we’ll try this set of new tools at home…
