About the Event

Blink Community x Thrive Tokyo presents - 


Every person who moves abroad will experience a series of highs and lows during their transition. In this event, participants will learn about the 4 common stages each individual goes through, how long it takes to transition from one stage to another, and advice on what action steps to take to mitigate these stages for a smooth transition to living in Japan.


This will be an online event and the zoom link would be shared with you once you sign up for the tickets. Please be aware of the time zone as this event would be open for everyone (all over the globe) and would be held as per Japan Standard Time. Kindly add it to your calendar so that you don't miss out on this event. We are looking forward to seeing you all "virtually".

The webinar will be recorded and uploaded on YouTube. We need to keep the show's essence and deliver it to people who would not have a chance to attend the event. For that reason, we will upload an unedited version of the recording. If you wish to be part of the Q&A section or discussion, please be aware that it will be recorded and uploaded. If you do not want to be recorded, you are more than welcome to join and listen and keep your cameras turned off. 

Most Importantly, we want you to enjoy the event and take part so keep your questions ready (if any) and we will have a small Q&A session with our speaker towards the end of the event.
