Hong Kong Orientation
“A Hong Kong Orientation (introduction) will help you and your dependents adjust to Hong Kong and to become functional in the minimum amount of time, saving you stress, time, and money”
Our Orientation service will minimize the logistics of your transition and enable you to be ‘up and running’ much faster, leaving you and your family free to concentrate on your real priorities.
Marion Udall’s Hong Kong Orientation advice is based on her personal experience and assisting over one hundred families through the same transition. Many companies will pay or reimburse the fees for an Orientation service, as this assistance speeds assimilation and reduces the risk of a relocation failing.
As a Hong Kong permanent resident with deep Orientation experience, her knowledge and contacts will be at your disposal.
Satisfied clients come from many sectors (e.g. Big4, an airline, logistics , a US Conglomerate, manufacturing) and countries (e.g. Europe, Asia, North America, Australia). Client families have originated from the US, Canada, Europe, Australia and Asia – Taiwan, Vietnam, Korea to name a few.
Orientation services are available in English only.
