With over 7500 multinational companies, Hong Kong is a well-established destination for expatriates. Now it's your turn to step onto the world stage and take your family along for the ride. Everything points to success. However, up to 50 per cent of international leadership assignments fail. Added to this are the complexities of leading in Hong Kong, a city where eastern and western, ancient and modern, influences come together. A 'one size fits all' approach is therefore unlikely to work, so what's the solution? In Foreigner in Charge: Hong Kong, leading international business coach Padraig O'Sullivan takes an insightful, comprehensive look at what it takes to succeed. Central to the book is the PALDER framework, a proven, integrated approach mapping out the transition phases you will experience in your first two years. It illustrates the waves of change you, your family and the organisation will undergo and gives you the necessary navigation tools. The book also guides you through: * mental and professional preparations before leaving home * what to expect in Hong Kong * how to help your family smoothly transition to Hong Kong life * the unique characteristics and challenges of leading in Hong Kong. Complemented by online worksheets, Foreigner in Charge: Hong Kong delivers everything you need to transition successfully and get the most out of your Hong Kong leadership experience.

Filled with vivid descriptions of delicious wines, great food, and stunning views, this is a unique insight into the world of the winemaker, and a story of passion, dedication, and love When Caro and Sean find the perfect 10-hectare vineyard in Saussignac, it seems like their dreams of becoming winemakers in the south of France are about to come true. But they arrive in France with their young family (a toddler and a newborn) to be faced with a dilapidated 18th-century farmhouse and an enterprise that may never, ever make them a living. Undeterred by mouse infestations, a leaking roof, treacherous hordes of insects, visits from the local farm "police," and a nasty accident with an agricultural trimmer, Caro and Sean set about transforming their "beyond eccentric" winery into a successful business as they embark on the biggest adventure of their lives-learning to make wine from the roots up.

A guidebook can show you where to go, a phrase-book what to say when you get there. Only Speak the Culture: France will lead you to the nation's soul. This easy-to-use cultural companion reflects what it means to have grown up with Camus, Cezanne, De Gaulle and Bardot; it captures the spirit of France and delves deep into the Gallic psyche. Through exploring the people, the movements and the lifestyles that have shaped the French experience, you will come to an intimate understanding of France and the French.There are many travel guides and manuals on living in France. Speak the Culture: France is different: a superbly designed, informed and entertaining insight into French life and culture and who the French really are.Recommended by the Institut francais du Royaume-Uni, the Official French Government Centre of Language and Culture in the UKFor new residents, business travellers, holidaymakers, students and lovers of France everywhere, Speak the Culture: France is an engaging companion and guide to an enviably rich civilization at the heart of Europe. Excerpt"It would be wrong to imagine that your average Frenchwoman just pops into Chanel on the Rue du Faubourg-St-Honore whenever she needs a new bag, cardy or fragrance. While a significant minority do indulge in ready-to-wear lines produced by designer labels, most are happy with less brand-conscious garments. Small boutiques and historic department stores like Le Bon Marche and Les Galeries Lafayette sell the big brands, but many French are happy to buy anonymous clothes at knockdown prices in chain stores like Tati, or even in the hypermarket."

In 2014 Sophia Erickson graduated from college with an apparently useless degree in European history from an obscure foreign college. Faced with crippling student loan debts and after an anxious couple of months waiting tables in her small Massachusetts town, she decided to do something different and bought a one-way ticket to China. Over the following two years she had many amazing experiences, paid off nearly half her student loans, and visited China from Heilongjiang to Hainan, as well as Myanmar, Vietnam, Malaysia, and Singapore. She wrote The China Option: A Guide for Millennials: How to work, play, and find success in China to give Millennials a path to explore their future the way she explored her own in China. The book covers a wide range of topics from the concept of "face" to coffee culture to racism to love to LGBT issues, as well as all of the practicalities readers need to know to get in and get a job. The China Option is a manifesto for recent college grads to take control of paying off debt while living a stimulating, adventurous life and to pave a way for a successful future.
