All speakers agreed that "Holistic Competencies" are indispensable components to support students' sustainable growth, and this point of view was no exception to Ms. Irene Ng.  She, in her address, said, "Over the past few months, 'innovation and technology' has been one of this city's hottest catchwords……While you are trying hard to get heavily involved in the A - 'artificial intelligence', B - 'big data' and C - 'cloud computing' under the umbrella 'innovation and technology', I hope you would see the importance of another set of ABC……They are A - 'appreciation and acknowledgement', B - 'bravery and broad-mindedness' and C - 'creativity and curiosity'.  They are part of the 'holistic competencies' which will facilitate your positive thinking and attitude towards the rather dull atmosphere and complexed situation nowadays."

The "HAVE, U Can" High Table Dinner offered students a precious chance to grasp insights out of the guests' speeches, learn other people's experience during the dialogues with them, mingle with fellow students, and get versed in dining etiquettes.
