About expatknowhow

Our own cross-cultural experience is at the heart of our expatClaire Snowdon, MD of expatknowhow services.

Principal Claire Snowdon introduces expatknowhow:

The services of expatknowhow are evolved from my own personal experiences as an expat living and working in Europe, the Middle East, Asia and the Far East over a period of 20 years, and from my eventual repatriation to the UK.

During my time overseas I worked as a senior executive managing change programmes and culturally diverse groups. I also trained, placed and supported cross-functional teams across China, Egypt, Jordan, India, Indonesia, Madagascar, Maldives, Pakistan and Swaziland.

Thanks to my time abroad, and the agility and problem-solving approach I developed in adapting to living and working in different countries, expatknowhow can call upon an international network of associates whose experience complements my own.

It all adds up to a collective expertise that can facilitate any move abroad – or return home – while really helping businesses and individuals get the most from an overseas posting.
