About

Discover how the invisible hand of culture drives your behavior in ways you never imagined!

As an intercultural practitioner, I know that all those who wander are not lost. When I'm not travelling or supporting global nomads to cope with culture shock and adapt to unfamiliar surroundings, I reveal how the invisible hand of culture drives our behavior in ways you never imagined!

Yet, for every hour of training delivered, countless hours of demanding research and content creation are required. So I’ve found a way to share my sixth sense for cultural insights by visually. Like how people relate, reason, and regulate themselves across cultures.

My background is in cultural anthropology and I draw on over 20 years of international work-life experience (first in Greece, as an editor of Greece’s Weekly for Business & Finance; a freelance journalist in England; and TEFL instructor in Spain). Today, I’m a member of the International Coaching Federation, the Expat Coach Association, and SIETAR Europa. I also sit on the Board of Directors of Pastoralist Child Foundation and I’m a trusted expert for SheSource.

My clients  employed at BNP Paribas, Christie’s Auction House, Deutsche Bank, Ernst & Young, L'Oréal, Mars, Nestlé, Maybelline, TOTAL, Sanofi, SIRVA, Unilever, Vanguard  receive guidance to boost the job search, navigate start-up processes and branding, and career transition strategies.

Recently, I developed online courseware for global relocation platform, Globiana where I am Cross-Cultural Transition Lead. I’ve guest lectured about cross-cultural communication, global business practices and ethics at CETYS Universidad Baja Mexico, IBM School of Graduate School of Management Nice, France and CUNY Baruch College, Zicklin School of Business. I speak to groups and moderate panel discussions about global talent mobility including SHRM New York, Global Business HR, Duty of Care, SIETAR Europa Congress – Dublin 2017.

I’ve authored numerous guides and content contributing to the body of intercultural literature including publications such as Global Living Magazine, HuffPost, and New Jersey Monthly. Recently. I was quoted in The Greek National Herald, Forbes Woman, and PRI’s The World. And now, you can listen to my Globalista Gal Minute podcasts on iHeart Radio and Sound Cloud.

Right now as I write the only book for American expats to cope and adapt with culture shock, I will probably illustrate it with some of my Expat Whisperer Etsy Shop visuals – so follow me on @ExpatWhisperer to see what I’m doing next! I welcome all convos, and to learn more, go to ExpatWhisperer.com or email: LLFinan [!at] live.com.

Shipping
Generally all orders received before 12 noon EST are shipped the same day. We normally ship through UPS and USPS. Our new shopping cart allows you to choose the preferred shipping method and cost. All the product weights are calculated into the shopping cart which is linked to the UPS and USPS current shipping rates to calculate your exact shipping cost.

Your package may come in a recycled box (do not place product in your freezer). Recycled boxes are good for the environment and save us both the added expense of a new box. You order will be packed in shredded newspaper. I do my best to keep the cost of shipping as low as low as possible.

The most cost effective way for us to ship to Canada is to an address in the states just over the border. The Second best is with USPS. With USPS you only pay an $8.50 brokerage fee (information from a fellow Canadian) to collect tax. With UPS you can pay $50.00 or more just for the brokerage fee for UPS to collect and deliver the tax. Here is a tip from a fellow Canadian - You can go pay the tax ahead of time at the CBSA. Just take your invoice which we can email, pay the tax. When UPS shows up, show them the receipt for the "tax paid" and tell them to leave your package.

Thank you for shopping the ExpatWhisperer!
