We'll go over your unique relocation needs; either for your company, you, or you and your family. Goals, budget, and other expectations will be taken into account.

We will then take our time to combine your needs and expectations with local realities; anticipating potential challenges, and offering a comprehensive package that works for you - with the right amount of choice and guidance.

Once you've given us the green light, you will be assigned a dedicated Relocation Team, that is available for you in real time. We'll get started right away managing your relocation, respecting deadlines, and making sure you don't skip a beat.

From our first conversation together, we do everything we can to understand your unique situation and goals - and then where the areas of difficulty might present themselves down the road. This helps us put together a personalized service solution package that is unique to you and your assignee's needs.

After we agree on our methodology, intervention areas, and service offerings, we provide your company with a designated Relocation Coach and support staff who are with you through every challenge during your time in West Africa.
