A year that ends… and more to come

 

Dear friends,

it’s been quite a while since our last post. Many events have happened during that time keeping us busy, which we’ll happily would like to share in retrospective with you:

– In August we received the keys of our new premises in Hennessy Road (Wan Chai) and soon after, renovation works began.

– In September renovation and fire service installation works started to delay the progress for different reasons, and our classrooms furnitures did too. Meanwhile we were doing a lot of bureaucratic paperwork and installed our small computer network in classrooms and office. We started to operate some classes once our classrooms were operative.

– In October we started to get ready for different government department inspections paying us visits to check whether our centre was meeting all school license requirements.

– In November we got all our audio and visual classrooms equipment installed (Projector mounts and screens) and we had a last government inspection. Yet, another round of bureaucratic paperwork wanted to be dealt with.

– In December all the hard work was finally rewarded by obtaining our School License !! Not only that, we successfully signed our first corporate client, started to promote our services through different channels and were already able to hire new teachers as we’re gradually getting more requests.

As you can imagine, big changes and lot of effort are behind these words. Boris and I have been working as much as we could to end this year 2015 on the high note we’re doing it.

We can’t wait to share with you everything we have ready for you in 2016. We believe it’s going to be a very exciting trip, and want to share it with you.

From EIL we wish all of you had a wonderful Christmas and that 2016 is going to be a healthy, happy and prosperous one for everyone!!
