A new Dawn in Ireland (2020)

Save time, energy and money by following our step-by-step process to create your new life in Ireland - stress-free.

The comprehensive step-by-step method to create your new life in Ireland.

A Guide for Emigrants By Returned Emigrants. Coaching by ICF-certified personal and business coaches.

We get it. You are thinking about coming to Ireland or have already made your big decision. You want the step-by-step details. You want the actionable tips and friendly advice that your fellow emigrants have used to successfully create your new life in Ireland over the next few weeks and months.

Returning home or emigrating to Ireland is as much, if not more, a mental and emotional life-changing experience than it is a geographical move or logistical exercise.

I created this course because I want you to overcome the challenges and embrace your new life in an easier way than I and many of your fellow returnees did. We’ll take you by the hand and show you the exact process that thousands of your fellow emigrants have used to settle in Ireland and to navigate their way through the stages of recreating a new life with minimal stress.

But first, let us explain how this course will help you and why we're so excited by it.

Entry to the 2020 Bronze Programme opens soon - you can still enrol.

The programme begins Monday, June 8th, 2020.

OKAY, so this course looks exactly what I need. What will we be covering in the course each week?

This course is a self-paced online course with a live group coaching element. (Yes, you’ll get amazing help from myself and other emigrants).

You can complete it in weeks or if you wish to take longer as you plan your move then it will provide you the information when you need it. Each module is designed to coincide with a particular step in your epic journey home.

Each week you’ll go through the course module online in the private members area, and then (if you’d like) you can join us for the live group coaching call for more hands-on help to ask questions and get amazing help from myself and other students on the program.

The NEW DAWN Programme is the easiest path through all the major stages in your emigration journey - Decide, Plan, Move, Settle and Enjoy!
