Michaela Hope

Michaela has lived all over the world and travelled it extensively but feels most ‘at home’ in Asia, having lived and worked in Hong Kong for over 30 years. 

An enthusiastic, versatile professional, Michaela has a wealth of practical experience in hospitality sales and marketing through previous employment with international hotels; gourmet food; catering equipment suppliers; and a food-service consultancy – in both the U.K. and Hong Kong.    It was at this time she met Karl.

Previous experience in Vietnam includes her strategic involvement in a pioneering project development and "In-Country” training of Vietnamese Science Operatives in the manufacture and application of hydroponic kits and nutrients.  This project was launched on national television, from Hanoi.  Such was her interest in this field she subsequently formed her own company ‘Eco-Hopes’ introducing hydroponic herb kits to a niche market in Hong Kong, before ‘growing’ her own family took over!

Michaela is a member of Institute of Hospitality (I.O.H.), and has built upon her H.C.I.M.A. (member since 1990) professional qualifications, by achieving a First Class BSc (HONS) International Hospitality and Tourism Management, graduating from Sheffield Hallam University.
