Joint Discovery in 2021

Bernard Chan

Non-official Convenor of the Executive Council

Balancing different stakeholders’ opinions is always Bernard’s job, and the hardest one. He always receives polarised feedback regarding the work of the HKSAR Government. We are impressed by how he makes decisions that would bring out the best in society. Listening to diverse voices serves lots of good but no single policy, project or program can please everyone. Going forward, the future is in the hands of our youth. Their critical thinking skill, empathy, and leadership skill are the key.

Betty Liu

Executive Vice Chairman of the New York Stock Exchange
former news anchor for Bloomberg Television

“No decision is worse than a bad decision.” Our team always keeps in mind Betty’s word when we feel stuck with our ideas. We have spent endless meeting time discussing over different ideas, trying to find one best solution to overcome any issues, but soon realized there isn’t one. Therefore, it’s better a good decision quickly than the best decision too late.

Brain Li

Co-CEO of Bank of East Asia

The direct dialogue with Brian inspired us to accept that no one, even CEOs, can save all the world’s problems. That said, we can still do our humble best to strive for progressive changes. Like how Brian leads the Bank of East Asia, he is definitely aware that the industry is being disrupted by FinTech, crypto, digitized processes, etc. However, he still believes in innovating while adhering with legacies. His “striving for excellence” attitude is uplifting words for us youth.
