Meet with Sir David Akers-Jones

Under the "Value Exploration Series" of the I·CARE Achievers Programme, the "Meet with Sir David Akers-Jones" activity was held on the 30th of April.  Shortlisted students were invited to a small-group discussion with Sir David Akers-Jones at his house on mutual life lessons and perspectives of different issues.  Towards the questions raised by students pursuing studies of law, physics and social sciences, Sir David Akers-Jones lent a willing ear and offered wise counsel.

Now aged 92, Sir David Akers-Jones is the former Chief Secretary of Hong Kong and the most senior colonial official living in this territory.  After retirement, he started serving as non-executive chairman and director of numerous companies.  He is now President of Business and Professionals Federation of Hong Kong, and has been engaging himself in voluntary and charitable services enthusiastically.  Riding on his experience and success, Sir David Akers-Jones is the most competent person to guide students in quest of the meaning and value of life.

To benefit more students, this Centre will re-run the "Meet with Sir David Akers-Jones" activity in the new academic year.  Full-time local students who are interested may register at here.  Details of the meeting will be worked out directly with those who are accepted for participation finally.

If you have any enquiries, please contact Ms. Lam of this Centre via 3943 9860 (Tel) or sophialam@cuhk.edu.hk (Email).
