Become an Impactleader
& Social Entrepreneur


Are you feeling overwhelmed living in a new country and feeling that you want to do something?
Be valued and participate so you will feel you are making a difference?
Use your talents and have financial independence?
Work with a team of people of your choosing to offer something unique to people?
Use your experiences as an expat to set up a venture of your own?
Reach for the sky and make it happen?

We from ImpactLeaders international (www.impactleaders international) have developed a unique training ‘Become an Impact Leader and Impactful Entrepreneur’ especially for the Expat community.


Our training aims to contribute to support the transformation agenda for the world which has been translated in 17 Sustainable Development Goals.


We take an inside out approach which starts with YOU: what are your dreams? Talents? Purpose? Mission? What would you like to do and what would you like to contribute? Entrepreneurs are gamechangers, and are so necessary in our world. They create new things to problems we are facing. You as an expat have a role to play in this respect!

In our online training we will embark on a journey of self-discovery which takes you through different stages: Discovering, Dreaming, Designing and Delivering. 


We offer a unique online training to become an impact leader, start or grow your business and work for social impact. 


1 - Work with the Tree of Life & 8 habits of excellent leadership.

2 - Understand the world and your purpose.

3 - Spot opportunities and tap into your creativity.

4 - Design Value Proposition fit with your target group.

5 - Make your organisation ready for sustainable delivery of value.

6 - Deliver tangible impact.

Our biggest fear is not
that we are inadequate. Our
  biggest fear is that we are
powerful beyond measure.
