British Name, Swiss Identity, Speaks French, Stephanie Booth presents 'Going Solo' (May 16)

She could be British for all I knew until I met Stephanie Booth at South by Southwest.

In fact she lives in Lausanne, Switzerland, speaks French fluently and being one of these so called Global Nomads decided to stage Going Solo, a one day conference directed mainly at freelancers and small business owners wondering how to fit in the new landscape.


Going Solo takes place on May 16, in Lausanne, off the shores of Lake Geneva.

If you are in Europe in or around that time, make plans to attend.

Too bad I cannot be there (unless I get sponsored).

I plan on attending the Blog Potomac on June 13 though, less travel, better exchange rate (for now at least).
