Earlier this year, Polyglot Group’s Global Head of Market Development, Jacques Reynaud, had the honour of being invited to be interviewed as part of the French show 24H Chrono.
Featured on the popular French channel TV5, the show’s mission is to go around the world in 24H (the equivalent of 24 episodes) in 24 steps.
Each and every one of the episodes feature hundreds of companies and French citizens living overseas (whether they be permanent residents or expats) who are all bringing their own unique experience to the table.
The cities that will be featured this year are:
Riyad, Buenos Aires, Sydney, Bruxelles, São Paulo, Québec, Shanghai, Le Caire, Madrid, Paris, Accra, Bangalore, Tokyo, Kuala Lumpur, Mexico, Maputo, Panama, Amsterdam, Faro/Lisbonne, Prague, Singapour, Genève, Los Angeles, Ho Chi Minh Ville.
“24 H Chrono de l’International” is a unique concept that opens a window into the International market showcasing the incredible opportunities and amazing experience that are available overseas.
Featuring different people from different walks of life, the show is dedicated to featuring the business opportunities available in each of the selected cities. From how to best create a company, to the niche markets available as well as the different laws each city has, the show leaves no rock unturned to provide the clearest image of what to expect when moving from France.
On top of the business aspect available in each city, the show also interviews its guests on the way of life and its costs, how easy/hard it is to find work, the cultural differences one can expect when visiting the city in question, etc.
Having moved to Sydney in 2005 to work with Polyglot Group as an intern on a Working – Holiday Visa and returning back a year later as General Manager of the Polyglot HQ in Sydney after being sponsored by the company, Jacques’s experience is an interesting one. Jacques lived 8 years in Sydney helping grow the company before launching its European division in 2013. He has since been the leading factor in Polyglot’s growth as we expand our roots on an international scale.
Even though he no longer lives or works in Sydney, Jacques memory of his second home after leaving France is one of fondness. He also recognises that the welcome he received from this beautiful city was more than he could every imagine, hence why he transformed his original trip of 6 months into a career building move that has followed him ever since.
