For Prospective Clients

The Black Expat Coaching Directory serves as a trusted resource to help our audience identify an experienced Black Expat Coach to assist with the navigating expat life. We identify knowledgeable professionals with the right experience to guide others in their international endeavors. 

For first time expats, working with a Coach can help clarify the process. If you are anxious or need guidance, a Coach can help you strategize a plan for a successful move. If you have a particular situation (such as a special needs dependent) that requires consideration, the right Coach can help you figure how to navigate.

All coaches undergo an application process that includes submitting past client references. The Black Expat team reviews each Coach’s materials to ensure that they are representing their brand  and skillset accurately.  Just because an individual applies, does not mean they are automatically included. 

Everyone’s priorities are going to be different but there are a couple of factors you should consider. You should determine if a Coach has the services that best meets your needs. You may also want to evaluate if they have experience or working knowledge in the region you are relocating to. You should also review their website to get a clear idea of their scope of expertise. You may also want to evaluate what past clients have said about working with them.
