Over 100 businesses from across Asia came together in Hong Kong for two events hosted by Middlesex University to discuss university and business collaboration, and CPD for employees.
Held on 19 and 20 November at the Grand Hyatt Hotel Hong Kong, the events saw business leaders from a variety of sectors find out more about the importance of upskilling employees and ensuring staff feel equipped to deal with industry developments.
The first event was a business alumni networking evening which provided a great opportunity for former Middlesex students to re-connect with each other in the Asia region.
This was followed by an intimate executive business lunch hosted by Vice Chancellor Tim Blackman, which brought prominent companies together to discuss higher education and business collaborations.
Middlesex University is leading the way in creating tailor-made courses which address industry needs and help companies further develop their staff's skills. Recently this has included tailored courses for Wal-Mart's Asda, Halifax, and World Pay
Students on some of these courses are based across the globe including Australia, Asia, the UAE, India and Brazil.
The two events were arranged by the University's Corporate Engagement team and the Alumni Association.
David Williams, Director for Global Corporate Engagement, said: "Here at Middlesex University we have a reputation for the highest-quality teaching and research that makes a real difference, together with a practical, innovative approach to working with businesses to develop staff potential and provide solutions to business issues.
"Meeting successful alumni and business leaders it is inspiring to see what they have achieved and the impact on their organisations. We look forward to continuing this important work"
