I also use it to list my Indian Cookery Lessons and get a lot of bookings through the adverts posted under various sections (viz. Events, Food, Drink & Fun, Free Classified Ads). Louisa, I am really grateful to you in more ways than you probably realise! Your website is an asset to the Expat community. Well done and hope you keep up the good work!”

 "Expat "media" isnt just about print magazines or newspapers, it's about alternative channels like these expat groups, or the excellent club newsletters and activities, like the ones from ZIWA or the American Woman's Club / American Club. Most of all, I take my hat off for people like Louisa Schibli , who have been consistently keeping up and updating such a valuable resource like the www.xpatxchange.ch; or yahoogrouper Carmen, who takes her time to fish for that special tip and brings people together in the e-world."

quoted from a Yahoo chat group 26.10.04

"We just want to really express our thanks to you!  Our recent changes in the Xpat site have really paid off...Over 45 people have accessed the new group in Handy Tips concerning seasonal fruits and vegetables, and over 50 people have checked out the new Alternative Dining section in Food, Wine & Fun...not to mention a very large spike in those accessing Cooking Classes and Wine...At Laughing Lemon, we have already more than doubled our monthly referral traffic from Xpat....Great!!!

As our business continues to expand, and we grow enough to meet the demand, we will most definitely support your efforts at Xpat in any way we can....In the mean time, Silvia and I offer our heart-felt thanks to you for offering a platform to the ‘little’ companies of the world struggling hard to promote an idea they strongly believe in!"
