Relocate to Repurpose 2023 (Thailand Edition)

Relocate to Repurpose 2023 (Thailand Edition)

Taking place in Chiang Mai from October 24-31, 2023

What to Expect:

"Relocate to Repurpose" is a live, on-site, real-life learning program, ‌ ‌fully covering the most important aspects of living a repurposed life in Thailand—specifically Chiang Mai.

It is a completely immersive experience. 

This is not a tour or excursion.

This is a learning program expedition, with a realistic, fully immersive experience and focused agenda.
  • The primary goal is to ensure you are equipped and empowered to be able to confidently transplant yourselves from Singapore to Thailand as frictionless as possible.
  • The secondary goal is to ensure that whether you eventually stay (for however long) or decide not to at all, you will still be familiar enough (by the end of this program) to know you can confidently set up an extra home-base in Chiang Mai at any time, and at your own discretion, within a trusted community network.

Why a Program?

Over the past two years, there have been Singaporeans that come over to Chiang Mai to “recce” (as they like to say).  For many of them, their “Recce” (“reconnoissance”) trips were a blotchy patchwork of experiences running around based on what they had read on the internet or from the opinions of newly relocated Singaporeans who were also trying to figure things out, or relying on Thai contacts that weren’t directly involved in visa, legal or immigration matters.

These trips would end up incomplete and repeated, or more confusing and limited in scope.  I come to know of this only after people return to Singapore, and then get asked questions that highlight this problem.  Then, I find myself back to answering questions to people via text that I haven’t met but somehow heard of me through my Telegram group.

From past experiences, I wasted countless hours agreeing to meet with others, having them sponge answers from me, then having them forget what I shared with them, as they moved on to other contacts and sponging a variety of those same answers, rarely ever having any of it truly make sense to them because they were merely seeking emotional assurance rather than decisive clarity.

So in late-2023, I have decided I would host a definitive learning experience entitled “Relocate to Repurpose” using the structured format of a learning program so that it can be modular and nothing would be missed.  This way there are measurable outcomes, and participants can get definitive answers for themselves during the programbecause their mindset and intention would now be aligned in seeking to get decisive clarity, thereby getting the most out of both the program and their trip, without a nagging sense that they may have missed out some crucial information.

And instead of doing this in some hotel conference room setting, it would instead be conducted and experienced on-site in Chiang Mai at specific locations and with specific people.   I decided that I would put all my time, effort and experiences into absolutely making this the most effective program for those who are considering relocation for retirement, repurposing, or simply what’s possible for the next chapter of their lives.

What Makes This Program Special:

The "Relocate to Repurpose" program is special because it’s a live, on-site, real-life learning expedition fully hosted by me, with over 72+ hours of personal + professional time spent with me, along with a special selection of my most trusted contacts within Chiang Mai, covering all necessary topics regarding retirement, and it’s completely immersive, meaning it has experiential activities and experiential learning combined.

Having been in Chiang Mai since 29th Dec 2015, Khun Ke (nicknamed in Thai) has been actively involved with local community life and enjoys bridging connections between different groups, through food, music and events.

He has actively created, curated and hosted food events in Chiang Mai, bringing various people and cultures together to bond over meals and new friendships.
