Who We Are

The HUB Geneva is an exciting new venture set up by parents, for parents.

It is a chance to unite and help English speaking families living and working in the Geneva area to connect locally and feel that they belong, and will in time thrive, within the local community.

We are volunteers, not professionals, from all sorts of backgrounds and countries, and most importantly we all have families.

We don’t profess to know all the answers, but we are here for you and we do appreciate and acknowledge your worries, no matter how trivial they may seem.

Elaine

Elaine

Founder

I have always been a firm believer in the benefits of early intervention to help families to thrive, no matter who they are, or where they may be based.  My background in public health and services to support children and families in the UK raised my awareness of the struggles people endure and COVID has emphasised some of our needs even more.  This was the inspiration I needed to develop the concept and the elements of The HUB.

Marketing

With a near 20 year background in financial services and two primary-aged children I arrived in Switzerland hopeful for adventure.  Fast-forward 3 years and I am most often at the skatepark overseeing their stunts and listening to podcasts in french to raise my skills.  I have built my network but the path could have been easier.  The HUB is here to help others with their journey. Contact me on [email protected].

Treasurer

With a background in fund management and governance, and as a mum of two daughters, I was used to the juggling act of life as a parent.  My arrival in Switzerland presented me with new challenges though and I found I suddenly needed to rebuild my support network in my new home.  Social media proved to be the key to creating new connections and settling into a new rhythm.  It’s my hope that connections made and knowledge shared on our site can be a source of support and help for others.

Partnerships

With a career in sales, I arrived in Switzerland with my 2 young boys and my husband, full of excitement.  This was a new chapter and I couldn’t wait to explore. The reality was rather less high octane experience and rather more mundane mummy management.  My decidedly basic French did not help me in my mission to belong.  Now I have those essentials mastered(ish), I am free to climb every mountain and swim every sea (well lake).
