Testimonials


"The objectives of this program are consistent with the curriculum reform which emphasizes career-related experience which is an essential element of education in the 21st century. Without hesitation, I gave it my support. I wish more companies and schools will participate in this meaningful program."

Mrs. Fanny Law
Permanent Secretary for Education & Manpower (2002 July - 2006 Oct)

"The program supplements and fills the gaps in our regular course curriculum. Students not only learn about entrepreneurship from the program's workshops, but also get to know how the commercial world operates and realize what a real work place is like Through exchanges with the CA, students boost approach their career with a positive attitude."

Principal Lee Ying Yee
Caritas Chong Yuet Ming Sec. School.

"This program has enabled our colleagues to reach out to the young people in Hong Kong today and understand their thinking. For our colleagues, this presents an ideal opportunity to experience something quite extraordinary outside of work."

Mr. Addy Wong
Managing Director of Centaline Property Agency Ltd.

 


"I think this is a good event. Before I come to it, I only think that Entrepreneurship is about start-up, and what that guest speakers are going to say, is how to grasp opportunity, like how to start a business right after graduate. But then after the whole event, I got the opinion that we have to be well prepared before we start-up, like we can have work experience before we try to start new business. I like this event and hope to join more"

"Thank you for giving us the workshop. It teaches me what the criteria of entrepreneurship are and inspires me to practise entrepreneurship in my current job. You also mentioned some exercises such as reviewing our daily performance and looking at ourselves in the mirror. I have practised them after the workshop and I am sure that they will enhance my self-esteem and self-value. Thank you very much for the workshop"
