BBA HRM Mentoring Program 2014 Closing & 2015 Kick-off Ceremony
The 2014 closing ceremony and 2015 opening ceremony for the BBA HRM Mentoring Program was held at Yau Yat Chuen Garden City Club on 10 Mar 2015. The Honourable Eddie Ng, SBS, JP, Secretary for Education, who was previously our adjunct professor, addressed to an audience of over 200 mentors and mentees, sharing the latest developments in Hong Kong education sector. Our senior managements and advisory committee members, including Mr. William Leung, Mr. William Chan, Dr. Michael Chan and Mr. David Lee, also attended the ceremony which turned out to be a star-stubbed evening.

During the ceremony, winners of the Best Report Award received the honors on stage with their mentors. This year’s championship went to Mr. Daniel Tang, who talked about his acquaintance with Mr. Kenneth Lee of Shun Hing Electric. Of all the things that Kenneth taught, Daniel found that greatest inspiration was the importance of trust exhibited in Shun Hing’s motto: “Trust Comes Prosperity (有信則興)”, something that Daniel found useful not only in work but also in life. 

The HKBU HRM Mentoring Program is jointly launched by the Hong Kong People Management Association (HKPMA) and the HKBU Department of Management.
