About This Week’s GuestAudrey Mezas

Audrey Mezas

Audrey Mezas is the Dutch owner of Expat in Amsterdam.

She is an Expat/Executive Personal Assistant to athletes, professors, families, international entrepreneurs and business executives.

The difference between Audrey and say a relocation company is that she delivers “tailor-made personal” service for each of her clients and accompanying them almost everywhere they need to be.

Audrey also trains teams in Executive Excellence and has moved 17 times and lived on four continents.

Audrey is theExpat in Amsterdam.”

Her tips to become more culturally competent are:

  1. Get to know the locals; don’t stay in your expat bubble.
  2. Make sure everyone in your family has a hobby or a sport to do. It keeps you connected to other people which will help you integrate.
  3. Don’t wait too long to get started to get adjusted. Otherwise, it will get harder and harder to adjust later on.

I'm passionate about Cultural Difference. I have been helping organizations save time and money when they work Internationally for the last 19 years. I have had the fortunate opportunity to hold lectures, workshops, and consulting projects on this subject World Wide. It has made me understand my own culture much better, and appreciate the differences around the world.
I have a Master's Degree in Organisational Psychology and have lived in the USA, the Netherlands and, currently, in Belgium.
Thank you!
