International travel is becoming an important aspect of growing your business beyond national borders. Maintaining your momentum during your travel becomes a challenge when your expectations are not met and time wasters accumulate over your stay. Work life balance becomes a real struggle. In this highly interactive workshop, Bettina and Valerie will share practical tips and insights on how to deal with typical stress triggers arising from working internationally. They will help you better manage your stress so that stress does not take over your life. Participants will have the opportunity to reflect and share with their peers their stress challenges. They will experience first-hand practical and simple tools to bring down stress levels and regain your “optimal state” when it matters.

Since founding Aronagh in 2010, Bettina has worked with clients in the UK, Germany, Denmark and Dubai, as a trainer, facilitator, coach and consultant.

Valerie Cheong Took

Valerie has spent most of her career working for international organisations. Business travel has been part of the work landscape for a number of years. Carrying on business negotiations, board meetings, project appraisal, business and project evaluation in different countries was part of her responsibilities. With an agenda that did not allow regular attendance at the gym or fitness classes, Valerie came up with her own  “wellbeing” toolkit so as to continue on performing at work and enjoying life. As a coach and workshop facilitator, she has been working with individuals and organisations based in Mauritius, Tanzania and the UK.

Valerie’s profile is available on Linkedin. In addition to stress management, Valerie offers cross cultural coaching and training. She also coaches on conflict resolution. In addition, she mentors and coaches young people. More information is available on her website.
