The “Best of All Worlds” video supports marketing efforts aimed at specific business targets, as well as supporting the recruitment of skilled workers, professionals and trailing spouses to St. Charles Parish and the Greater New Orleans area. The video accentuates the local assets and comparative advantages afforded to companies in targeted business sectors, then transitions into a sales presentation existing businesses can use to solicit prospective workers to relocate to the region.
