HKU SPACE x CMI Student & Alumni Event
29 June 2022
The inaugural gathering for GMBA students and alumni of the University of London was held on 29 June 2022 in Hong Kong after two years of delay due to the Covid-19 pandemic. This event was co-organised by HKU SPACE (The University of Hong Kong School of Professional and Continuing Education) and CMI.
Attended by around 20 people, the event started with opening speeches by the Chair of CMI HK, Dr Paulina Chan CMgr CCMI, and HKU SPACE Program Director, Ms Veronica Ng. Mr Rodney Chan, Co-opted Board Member of CMI HK led an ice-breaking activity, which was followed by lecturers, GMBA candidates and CMI members who discussed their experiences.
Co-opted Board Member Ms Janice Tai also talked about her journey towards becoming a Chartered Manager and how this accreditation has empowered her career advancement in her position at an international non-governmental organisation.
In addition, two other Board Members – Dr Alan Miller CMgr FCMI (entrepreneur) and Vivian Chi FCMI (barrister at law) – were present to share their personal experience and explained the benefits in engaging multidisciplinary professionals in leadership and management best practices.
Upon listening to these inspiring experiences, as well as a full introduction of CMI by Dr Paulina Chan, the GMBA candidates and alumni are excited about applying to become a Chartered Manager and volunteering for CMI. The event was a success, as the participants had a great time learning from each other and building networks professionally.
