Who We Are

 Daniela Piedemonte de Lima is the founder of Expat Coach and an experienced Human Resources professional with over 25 years’ experience providing human resources specialist services within large multi-national organisations. She has also had over ten years’ experience leading global mobility teams in both Australia and Brazil, and is a pioneer in cultural coaching, cross-cultural training and global mobility, with extensive experience in coaching teams in small, medium and large organisations.

Daniela has mobilised and recruited over 1,500 employees and their families from various countries and also worked for the Department of Immigration in Australia within both the private and public sectors. 

Having personally experienced working as an expatriate, Daniela understands the processes involved in ensuring a smooth transition and adaptation to living overseas.

“I have 25 years of experience in Human Resources, 17 of them in Australia. In Australia I helped pioneer the global mobility service market, working with multinationals such as Amec Minproc (Vale Project), Chevron and Unisys. My extensive background is specialised in human resources and showcases that I am an expert in my field, and alone I have recruited over 1,500 people worldwide.

My service is unique as I have personally experienced the often-convoluted processes and struggles of expatriation, repatriation and cultural adaptation, tasting the great highs and the equally great frustrations. Often job seekers cannot understand the new local market, or do not seek a professional to assist them so they fail and give up. With me there is no failing – you will always get results and this I can guarantee with a passion.

I have advised more than 1,500 families in the process of moving to Australia and am intimately familiar with the processes of preparing them to find a job and what it takes to eliminate the time of the job searches.

Our work together begins while you are still in your home country, as we work together to discuss your goals, and create a step-by-step success plan for your move to Australia. Once you are here, I follow up constantly and provide career coaching and head hunting services dedicated to helping you enter the marketplace as quickly and as smoothly as possible.

Finding that first job is always challenging – but it is not impossible! I have successfully helped many people who are new to the local market as I provide a large network of established contacts, and assist with positively engaging the specifics of the Australian market. I manage all necessary networking and harmonise the client’s transition into their new lifestyle, as well as providing powerful tools for career placement and the procurement of work visas. Assistance is also provided with interview preparation, including role playing and assembling a curriculum vitae in accordance with Australian recruitment standards.

Above and beyond these most basic of services, I also offer psychological and personal support during the entire process, so that each individual feels they are part of a team that is bound for success. Put simply, Expat Coach is a unique and specialised service.”
