About Groupon

Launched in June 2010 formerly as uBuyiBuy, Groupon features a daily deal on the best stuff to do, see, eat, and buy in more than 500 markets and 46 countries, and soon beyond (read: Space). We have about 11,000 people working around the world to find the best deals on the planet. Our headquarters is in Chicago, USA as well as regional offices in Europe, Latin America, Asia (Hong Kong, Japan, Singapore, Taiwan and Philippines)

Our company philosophy is pretty simple: we treat our customers the way we like to be treated. That boils down to a few key things:

We sell stuff we want to buy. A great price is only half the battle – it’s also got to be a great product or service. Between our top-rated business partners and unbeatable prices, you should feel comfortable venturing out and trying something new – just because it’s featured on Groupon. We want Groupon to be an addiction you can feel good about.

No BS. We really want you to love Groupon. “Gotchas” and buried conditions that sour the experience are a terrible way to accomplish that goal. We want each Groupon purchase to feel too good to be true, from the moment you buy to the day you use it. If there’s anything unusual about a deal, we go out of our way to point it out.

Unbelievable customer service. Like you, we’ve suffered through hour-long “transfer-athons” with customer service departments, or waited days for an email reply to to a simple question. If you contact us, we’ll do what it takes to make things right – and we’ll do it fast. Email us, or speak with a human (during normal business hours): +852-2342-2889

CityU offers professional education that prepares its students for the challenges and exciting opportunities opening up in Hong Kong, the Asia-Pacific region and throughout the world in business, science and engineering, energy and environment, law, creative media and social sciences. Through its extensive links with relevant industries, CityU provides real-life opportunities for students to work with and learn from professionals in the workplace, from bachelor degrees and postgraduate studies to associate degrees and continuing education.

At CityU, we strive to nurture well-rounded graduates, who are competent professionals, critical thinkers and life-long learners equipped to cope with a globalised work environment and positioned to capitalise on our extensive links to mainland China. Our approach to education is heavily influenced by the philosophy of “whole-person development”, a contemporary theory about learning and development that strongly resembles traditional Chinese educational philosophy. Subject to particular focus are the spiritual, intellectual, physical, social and aesthetic elements of education, coupled with the special attention paid to the emotional and career development aspects typical to Western educational philosophies.

Our teachers are recruited from around the world, each an expert in their profession. Employing interactive, IT-based teaching methodologies, students acquire a first-rate grounding in their chosen subjects and the life-long learning skills needed for the real world.

CityU offers state-of-the-art learning, teaching and research facilities in a high-technology environment to create an ambiance that encourages intellectual curiosity, social interaction, selfexpression and mutual support.

CityU has achieved phenomenal growth since its establishment in 1984. To date, it has a student population of 20,000 enrolled in more than 130 programmes at the associate degree, undergraduate and postgraduate levels.

Executives’ Global Network is a unique management tool for executives all over the world.
Some 8,000 members are brought together in more than 370 different network groups. Interest in networks is growing significantly all over the world.

EGN was established in 1992 by Jorgen Galsgaard from Denmark. In January 2011,Executives’ Global Network established a network for executives in Hong Kong withDennis Tang as CEO and co-founder and Dr. John Wong as Managing Director andco-founder. Both Dennis and John have international senior executive experience.Their vision is to help business leaders and senior executives in Hong Kong excel and shine in their management positions and help increase their companies’ bottomline.

Today EGN is a local and global network represented in Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Germany, China, Singapore, Indonesia, Australia, South Africa, Finland and Korea. On a day-to-day basis, your network group in your own country will be your most important network. However, if you need to ask a management-related question, or if you need international contacts, the entire network of 8,000 members are ready to assist you.

All groups are composed of people at your own level with different industries. This diversity ensures group dynamics and development. On the other hand, there will not be any competitors or companies with which you have significant customer relations in your group, because that would get in the way of open, confidential dialogue.

Your network group will quickly become your confidential haven where you will be challenged, can receive help to deal with a current challenge or try out new ideas. You will always receive a direct, independent assessment from your network colleagues, because the next time, they will be the ones needing your help.

Your network will rapidly and substantially enhance your skills – and hence your value to your company and your personal market value in the business community.
