Norman Viss and Carol Van Dyken are the founders of the Expat Everyday Support Center, which helps expats connect to their worlds.
Viss tells us the stories about how he coped as a young man working in isolated villages in the Nigerian savannah. He and Van Dyken then discuss what it has been like to live far from family, culture, traditions and lifestyle and the implications international living has on marriage and children.
Norman Viss holds B.A. and Master’s degrees, with majors in cross-cultural and urban studies and theology. He has many years of broad international experience working with people from a wide variety of cultures, including a 10 year span of living in Nigeria, West Africa, and 22 years in the Netherlands. Currently he lives in the Philadelphia, USA. In 2009 he completed the Certified Professional Coach Program at the International Coach Academy and is accredited by the International Coach Federation as Associate Certified Coach (ACC).
With a background in Human Resources (B.A. Human Resources and Business), Carol Van Dyken currently works on the development team of an international non-profit organization and has been trained and led seminars on interpersonal relationships through IT Partners. Things I like to think about:
