Margaret Malewski started her intercultural experience at a very young age - growing up in a Polish household in the French-speaking section of Canada. She moved to post-Communist Poland for university studies and had her first taste of profound culture shock - given my Polish roots and my fluent command of the language, I had not anticipated how different the cultural values could be. After graduation she she worked in France, the USA and the UK as an architect before joining the Marketing Department of Proctor & Gamble living first in Geneva and latterly in Israel. She is currently using her knowledge to develop expertise and resources for the new generation of GenXpats, including seminars on the personal aspects of relocation and on the cultural aspects of job applications/recruiting, and a website/online forum for GenXpats. She is a Master of Science in Architecture and Urban Planning and a member of Sietar BC. She is a regular contributor to expertexpat.com and expatica.com.
