- You may never climb Kilimanjaro yourself; you may never even have contemplated doing so. But when you hear of how a Filipino domestic worker in Hong Kong followed her dreams all the way to the top of some very big mountains, you may re-examine your priorities. You may even get off the couch and start hiking this city’s many incredible trails. Ma On Shan, anyone?
- She has a high-powered job at a global investment bank. She is a full-time working mother of two. She has worked across two continents, travelled the world, is a dedicated yoga practitioner and a few years ago lost a leg. She is the walking embodiment of the fact that people cannot be broken.
- Opera is not everyone’s cup of cha. One of our speakers disagrees – she thinks everyone can learn to appreciate and enjoy it (hopefully even love it) if they know how – if it’s accessible; if it’s pared back; if it is modernized; if it is fun; even if it is accompanied by your favourite tipple if that’s what makes you hum.
- An 11 year old CEO driving cross cultural learning. Need we say more?
- It’s not about giving anything up, it’s about trading up. This is not retirement planning advice or about buying your next car. From this speaker, it’s about turning your life around, one mouthful at a time.
- It is said that nothing binds a group of women together than mass loathing of their personal trainer. This speaker took that inner rage and turned it into one of HK’s most successful fitness groups, while starting a women-only health and wellness community.
