On 19th January David Conway, Deputy Director of Technical Services visited the University of Sunderland’s Hong Kong campus.
The four-day visit saw David, Ben Dale the Director of Finance, Michelle Donnan an accountant, and Andrea Bovill a Finance Business Partner take the 12,000-mile round trip. Allowing the team to work with the team at our Hong Kong campus, seeing how we can add value to and find synergies in the services we offer to our students.
Dr Stephen Ng, who leads the team in Hong Kong, showed the visitors from Sunderland around the two floor campus in the city centre. Despite being small in comparison to Sunderland, the Hong Kong campus offers a wide range of courses from across our faculties including Data Science and Marketing.
David Conway said, “We were made to feel incredibly welcome, and shared so much about their operation, their plans and aspirations with us, as well as some of the challenges they face. It was an invaluable trip.”
The visit is part of an opportunity to provide additional support to our colleagues in furtherance of our aims in Hong Kong. The team will be feeding back to the Hong Kong Steering Group chaired by Professor John Macintyre with a range of suggestions about how we can work more effectively and efficiently as a global team.
