Moving from Louisiana to Edinburgh

Scott’s Relocation family move from USA case study

The Brief

We were asked to relocate a family with a young child from Louisiana, USA to Edinburgh, Scotland. The husband was undertaking a high level job in Edinburgh and required cross cultural training to maximize his effectiveness in his dealings with colleagues and clients.

What Scott’s Relocation did

We sourced properties and nurseries and made sure the family was settled quickly in to a house they loved.   We also focused on cross cultural training and Maggie conducted a 3 hour briefing in the client’s home, which enabled him to see the differences between the way he worked in the American South and the way he should conduct business in Scotland. We paid particular attention to communication issues. We also discussed more general cultural and practical differences, including how his wife could settle more quickly and adapt to her new life (and new career) in Edinburgh.
