Press Release: Euroasia
Euroasia On The Move
Euroasia, New Zealand's leading private provider of foreign language courses
and cross-cultural consulting services, is planning a move. Euroasia
announced on Tuesday that the company intends to expand capacity and serve
its clients better by moving its head office and Auckland operation to
signficantly larger premises at 10 Titoki Street, Parnell, in July 2008.
The new location at the Auckland Domain is very central, and easily
accessible by clients from all over Auckland.
Euroasia currently operates nationwide, with face-to-face classes held in
Auckland and Christchurch. The Auckland head office is currently located at
100 Franklin Road, Ponsonby. The new premises in Parnell incorporate a
heritage building with 13 classrooms looking out to the Auckland Museum, and
will be shared with global education provider, Kaplan Aspect. Classrooms
are well-appointed and spacious, and clients will have access to an
attractive garden and outdoor terrace. There is also greater scope for
social functions and networking.
"Euroasia is committed to providing a wide range of top-quality foreign
language courses to New Zealanders, and this move will enhance our ability
to do so," said Euroasia Director, Kenneth Leong. "Moving from 6 classrooms
to 13 increases our potential capacity to 700 students, and will enable us
to offer a greater range of services in Auckland."
Euroasia is aggressively pursuing growth opportunities as other providers
scale back operations. "This is the ideal time for us to be gaining market
share as New Zealanders' interest in foreign languages and cultures
heightens," said Mr. Leong. "We are seeing more New Zealanders travel and
do business overseas; this is translating into unprecendented levels of
business for Euroasia".
Euroasia is assisting a number of state schools with their second language
programmes, as well as continuing to advise a number of businesses and
government agencies on their language, culture and translation requirements.
Euroasia's foreign language classes have been attended by over 2,500 New
Zealanders in the past 5 years, with over 400 enrolments so far this year.
Euroasia courses in Auckland and Christchurch are available through evening
classes, in-company tuition or online learning. Also offered to businesses
is cross-cultural consulting - working through the issues raised by dealing
with people from different cultural backgrounds.
