"It was organized to show others that you can be successful and grow personally and professionally, no matter where you are based in the world," she explained.

"There has never been an event like this for the expat community before and it’s an amazing opportunity to come together and learn from those who have already paved the way.

"It’s a chance to show how to make the most of your time and skills to create a life abroad that expands beyond just teaching English," she said.

The day will include sessions with more than 20 individuals who have created successful lives in their adopted country Spain.

Kay Fabella, will be sharing tips and tricks on how to start a purposeful business. Ryan Turner of Democrats Abroad and Fiona Govan from The Local Spain will be diving into engaging with activism and politics abroad.
