    Alumni Affairs

    Talk on mindset and results

    Property and investment expert Mr Stephen Yuen, MH was invited to talk on the theme of mindset and results on 6 November. The talk, entitled ‘Opportunities and Goals --- Mindset and Results, and China Property Investment’, was organized by the Alumni Office of the Public Affairs Unit, and attracted an audience of over 150 people.

    Mr Yuen has served in the Government and has also held key positions in sizeable corporations for 45 years. Currently Chairman and CEO of Infrared NF Investment Advisers Ltd, he possesses extensive professional qualifications and substantial experience of working in Southeast Asia and the Greater China region. A veteran administrator, he pointed out that one’s mindset is something worth paying attention to as it can affect such diverse aspects as interpersonal relationships, quest for knowledge, work attitudes, communication skills, behaviour, self-confidence, and even work performance.

    At the talk, Mr Yuen also shared tips on investing in China’s property market. He advised investors to gain key background information on areas such as infrastructure, culture, work practices and policy change before making any investment decisions, in order to better face the challenges of market fluctuation.

    Former HKSAR Chief Secretary for Administration shares on coping with difficulties

    On 4 October, former Chief Secretary for Administration of the HKSAR Mr Stephen Lam Sui-lung was invited as a speaker in the Distinguished Speaker Series to share his experience in coping with difficulties.

    At the talk entitled ‘Leadership: Life Experience and Biblical Perspective in Coping with Difficulties’ organized by the Alumni Affairs Office of the Public Affairs Unit, Mr Lam described how life experiences and inspiration from the Bible have empowered him to overcome challenges. He recalled a time when there was dispute over the 2012 political reform, and with perseverance and conviction stemming from his personal faith he was able to shed light on a difficult situation. He also pointed out the importance of finding an early solution when problems emerge by using the example of an event in Canada years ago. He was able to sidestep a potential diplomatic crisis by re-arranging the then Governor’s schedule to avoid the chance of an absence on his part. To conclude, Mr Lam listed three key principles in coping with pressure and adversity: staying calm, taking it easy and building up confidence with the support of one’s personal faith.
