Any new arrival to Malta, whether to seek employment, to set up a business, or even to retire, will want to attend the first of a series of seminars and networking activities being organised by LEAD Events, titled Expats in Malta.
Hosted by Blevins Franks, Expats in Malta is being held on Wednesday, 10 October, 2012, from 5.30 p.m. at the InterContinental Hotel, St Julian’s.
The successful formula adopted by LEAD Events in other fora will enable participants not only to gain access to some top speakers and content, but also help them to make some valuable contacts, sharing experiences with their peers. As a result, they may emerge from their comfort zone and move smoothly to integrate in Maltese society.
The keynote speaker is a diplomat, Ms Winifred Hofstetter, from the American Embassy who will recount her experiences having recently settled in Malta.
Malcolm Bray, Manager, Financial Stability Department at the Central Bank of Malta, will give an overview titled: “The Maltese Economy as seen from Outer Space”. Alex Grech, Manager at Blevins Franks International, will speak on: “The fundamentals of investing for tax efficiency in Malta”. Paul Gostelow, Partner, Astra Consulting, talks about “Working and doing business in Malta – the nuts and bolts”.
Teacher Noel Buttigieg will speak on “Malta – the island of ritual” and Executive Coach Amanda Holmes talks about “Riding the Expat rollercoaster”.
“Moving to a new country is both an art and a science. We wish to give participants a unique insight and I am convinced that both through the high-calibre speakers and the networking session that follows, everyone will take something out of the entire event,” James Grech, managing director of LEAD Events said.
“This is also an activity open to the Maltese who may want to make useful contact with expats,” he added, thanking the three event sponsors, vacancycentre.com, Astra Consulting and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
