Welcome from the Adviser to the President

Kathleen PhillipsLadies,

Apologies for my late contribution here,  but I have been busy trying to get settled back in the US after 12 years in Asia, 10 of which were in Hong Kong.

As the previous past president of BPW Hong Kong,  I am so excited to see the infectious passion,  drive and determination of Dr. Anne Hilty and all of the current ExCo committee members to establish BPWHK as the ONLY truly international business women’s organisation in Hong Kong.   I  look forward to my advisory role within the organisation and I wish you continued success in growing the organisation in Hong Kong as the prestigious,  international organisation it is famous for around the world.

Best Regards,
