Partnerships in global mobility

In her welcoming address, host Fiona Murchie, Relocate Global’s managing editor, spoke of the importance today of partnerships in overcoming current and future challenges, particularly around Brexit. “With so many changes in the world, it’s never been more important to join partnerships and collaborate, no matter what sector you are in,” she said.  “Global mobility is becoming so important in so many places. We are now introducing country partners to give our readership the in-depth knowledge they need for successful relocation.”“There is a pipeline across Europe which aims to satisfy the great thirst for information at the moment about Brexit, for example."John Beck, director of sales and marketing at Santa Fe Relocation, a sponsor of year's Relocate Awards, spoke of the “interesting past year and years ahead”, particularly around immigration, as companies move people round the world.“Global mobility has to be more switched on than ever. Santa Fe is therefore pleased to be part of the awards, which encourage and celebrate best practice.”
