  • Host networking cocktail events – two per course plus some pre-course information sessions
  • Attend industry events as a company representative

Additional Info

Having established a high quality and well-respected flagship programme and a secure business base, we are now entering a growth phase. We currently have 3 full-time staff (2 in Hong Kong and 1 in New York) plus two founders/owners, one of whom is based in London, and we also have representative partners in Japan and New York. We will be expanding our employee/partner base globally over the next few months, across various functions.
