Amel Derragui is a TCK, business and marketing coach, speaker and podcast host at Tandem Nomads. After a career in advertising, she quit her job to join her husband abroad and launched her first business consulting corporate companies while living on the move. Six years later, as she saw a critical need to support other expat spouses in finding their own source of fulfillment and financial independence, she launched Tandem Nomads to help them learn how to grow a successful portable business. Amel often speaks for various international organizations such as the IMF and European ministries of foreign affairs to provide guidance on how to use entrepreneurship as a solution to dual career challenges.
