Meet with Sir David Akers-Jones

In the second term, the "Meet with Sir David Akers-Jones" activity will be organised under the "Value Exploration Series" of the I·CARE Achievers Programme for CUHK full-time undergraduates.  This activity will be conducted in the form of a small group discussion, and the number of participants is limited to eight.

Now aged 91, Sir David Akers-Jones is the former Chief Secretary of Hong Kong and is the most senior colonial official living in Hong Kong.  He had once been a trainee at British India Steam Navigation Company during his young age.  How did he then take on the political arena and turn into a prominent political figure?  In this activity, participants will gain inspiration from Sir David Akers-Jones's wise counsel and delve with him into the meaning and value of life.

Full-time undergraduates who are interested may register at here.  This Centre will work out details of the meeting with those who are accepted for participation in this activity.  If you have any enquiries, please contact Ms. Leung of this Centre via 3943 1595 (Tel) or carolleung@cuhk.edu.hk (Email).
