As the phrase goes: Invention is the Mother of necessity.
It goes without saying this is how Kornelia Epping became the ‘Mother’ to new residents of Austria, with MOVES Consulting.
In this episode, she shares how her transition a new country propelled her to form her high-touch end-to-end relocation business, to help new expats settle into Austria with ease.
Kornelia Epping, Owner and Relocation Expert at MOVES Consulting
Born in Germany, Epping followed her childhood dream of living and working abroad.
After compiling a short-list, which included Holland, France and England, she decided Austria was the country she would call home.
Vienna was not the smooth transition, nor as welcoming as she hoped for: “Everything was different”. She had succumbed to the common misconception that sharing the same language equates sharing the same culture.
Due to the cultural difference, the shock of her experience made it very important for to support people through their transition important.
The result of her experience is MOVES Consulting.
