talent advisory and business services

Founderʼs message

I formed Universal Advisory Group via IP acquisition, partnerships and ambition to respond to changes in global talent markets by superior and best in field service provision. Both my academic and professional background have an international focus and I combine these experiences with over twelve yearʼs recruitment, sales and training. Since arriving in Hong Kong, I have recruited cross functional senior roles for a range of MNCs as well as SMEs. The first role I placed was for an upcoming, start up cloud computing company and subsequently, I have regularly advised organisations who are establishing in Asia and Europe or those who require assistance and advice for on-boarding and up-skilling. Within a month of inception, Univad doubled our capability, and I have similar plans for the future, splitting my time equally between Europe and Asia. If you would like to hear more about our business, then please get in touch- I would be delighted to hear about your's.
