WHO WE ARE
The ESU (HK) is run by a group of enthusiastic volunteers led by our Chairman Dr Verner Bickley, MBE. Administrative support is given by Ms Venni Tam, our part-time Administrator.
We have different categories of membership: corporate, educational, individual and student. Our membership number, now about 150, is increasing as more and more people identify with our aims and objectives.

A LITTLE MORE ABOUT ESU (HK)
The English-Speaking Union (Hong Kong) was established in Hong Kong in December 2001 as an independent, non-profit, educational charity whose mission is to promote local and international friendship and cooperation by encouraging the wider use of the English language. The ESU is an international organisation whose branches are independent, non-political, educational entities operating in over fifty countries, including, for example, China, Malaysia, Australia, India, the United States of America, the United Kingdom and New Zealand.
