We can sometimes sweep the dark side of expatriation under the carpet, but when we shine the light on it, the process is transformed! Join us today as we shine a light on Repatriation and the life-reset that it can be!

I work with returning executives, accompanying spouses and families who have completed overseas assignments. I help them recover and debrief from their last overseas experience. Re-entry can be a rough and rocky road, fraught with hidden expectations and tough choices. Many suffer in silence, prolonging and postponing the terrific productive lives they could be enjoying

I solve this!

I help Returnees discover and articulate their next grand vision then take the building block steps towards it. helping them navigate their transition to create their next great adventure. Specifically, I help them move from reminiscing to reinvention.

After living in seven countries over four decades, I have returned several times and to different home countries am intimately familiar with the process and trained as a coach and mentor to support and assist others.

Doreen Cumberford book Life in the Camel Lane cover

I offer:

a) a debriefing and discovery session for individuals;
b) a personal 12 week life-coaching program;
c) a Re-entry MasterMinding group program;
d) customized talks to corporations on international mobility and cultural intelligence

Helping others redefine home, build a new identity, grow a sense of belonging and settle without settling for less is a privilege. Overwhelm, emotion and sense of alienation can frequently accompany moving home from overseas, with coaching, mentoring and strategies.

Specialties: Repatriation, Expatriation, International Relocation, Cultural Transition, Debriefing, , Identity, Health and Wellbeing, Life Balance when reconnecting or relocating.

She spent two years in Sakhalin, in far East Russia as an expatriate working on challenging contract negotiations and mentoring nationals.

Ileana is a Subject Matter Expert (SME) in international development, who serves as a senior consultant and an agent of change by providing advice on industrial policies (specifically, on localization) and economic growth in the energy sector.  Since she was a teenager her drive and passion were to help developing countries overcome poverty and achieve economic prosperity.  Her passion and purpose are to build government capability, create competitive supply markets, and develop the skills of nationals.

Ileana believes that all energy projects should include initiatives to increase women’s participation in the energy sector.  To add value to conferences and exhibitions in the energy sector, Ileana organizes and leads the Women’s Economic Empowerment (WEE) program, an initiative delivered with local resources to mentor and coach WOBs and facilitate access to Buyers to pitch their goods and services.

Ileana has a BA in Languages, a Business major from Universidad Metropolitana (Caracas, Venezuela), and an MBA in International Development from Thunderbird School of Global Management (Arizona, USA).  She has completed Corporate Social Responsibility and Sustainability studies from Thunderbird Executive Education and took courses in Energy Policy from Robert Gordon University.  She earned the Executive Certificate in Economic Development from Harvard Kennedy School, after completing three programs: Leading Economic Growth (LEG), Implementing Public Policy (IPP), and Leading Green Growth (LGG).

It’s important to remember where you came from throughout your career, as it’s a good reminder of the past, the learning and experience you now have. For me I’ve been in this industry for over 36 years and I’m still learning every day, and I absolutely love the global mobility industry. In my earlier years, I did the actual removals myself and drove the trucks across Europe and had the opportunity to work in New York for a while. I spent 12 years on the road and lost count of the number of removals I carried out.

Back then, we didn’t have sat nav’s or mobile phones, but we were never late and always stayed in contact with the office.

There was no such thing as handyman services, we did it all ourselves, from taking windows out, to lowering sofas off rooftops, to carrying grand pianos down 10 flights of stairs.

I’ve moved everyone from Politicians, Pop & Movie stars to the Royal Family and that’s not including the number of Corporate Executives Worldwide.

Throughout my career, I have had the pleasure to work with some of the best people within our industry. Two people who stand out for me and who I admire for their achievements are Alain Taieb and the late Paul Evans.

Both have helped to structure the industry over the years, with the companies they have owned, and it’s been an honor working along side them.

Today, the industry is changing and its all about technology and reports (there’s nothing wrong with this), but please don’t forget about the guys and the girls who still carry out those daily removals, as they are the bloodline of our industry and without them, we would not exist.

There’s a reason it’s called Moving Services, so let’s keep it this way.
