    Cynthia Ferguson

    Working on a design project in the Bahamas sounded like a dream come true for this residential interior designer and confirmed beach addict.  What could be better than working on a beach on the beautiful island of Eleuthera? Accepting a job outside of your city can be unbelievably exciting - the mix of travel, the chance to use a different colour palette, the opportunity to do work outside of the box, and the chance to start sentences with, "I'm off to my job in the Bahamas....!" What could go wrong? Join Cynthia and learn about the trials and tribulations of tackling a job offshore, without your support network and in a country that operates very differently than you what you are used to.  There are a number of factors to consider when pitching jobs outside of your market. Here about being a designer on a sand bar in the Bahamas and all of the hilarious moments as well as the retrospect of hind sight.  Come and find out if Cynthia would do it again?! A question and answer segment will follow.
