Professor Andrew Chan, SBS, JP, Director of EMBA Programme, The Chinese University of Hong Kong, served as moderator.
Speaker highlights included :
Mr. Maximilian Ma, who believes that the business environment is out of our control and we should utilise Hong Kong’s advantages to adapt to the unstable macro environment. Mr. Simon Wong opined that nowadays entrepreneurs need to be socially responsible, not simply making money but also remaining innovative when running traditional businesses. Mr. Kevin Shee shared his experience starting his company during Hong Kong's economic downturn. He also believed that innovation and strong networking are the keys to success.

The second part of the Sharing of Business Elites 2016 “Do You Know Your Customers?” Seminar was presented by Dr Jackia Lee, Managing Director of Holistic Consultants Ltd, at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre Theatre. Dr. Lee pointed out that there are four levels of service delivery: basic, good, quality and excellent. The basic service provides fundamental services. Good service refers to the staff’s response to customers’ needs, and their ability and willingness to act and provide professional advice promptly. In order to achieve excellent service, not only do the basic, good and quality service conditions need to be fulfilled but staff also need to surpass customers’ expectations.
The audience was impressed with comparison of questionnaire results between customers in Hong Kong, Mainland China and the live audience given by Dr. Lee. The award-winning Q&A session generated a lively atmosphere. The majority of participants were satisfied with the seminar content and would like to participate in similar seminars in future.
