Hosted by the British Chamber of Commerce in Hong Kong

In this new series we are exploring innovations in the field of better business - doing the right things in the right way. Each event will adopt a different theme, and aims to connect all interested players in the ecosystem - a first for Hong Kong - from start-ups and NGOs through established businesses to members of government, academia and the investment community.

For our second event, we take a critical look at Hong Kong's workforce. Securing the right talent and the right skills is a major preoccupation of many Hong Kong employers, and for many a major challenge, and this event aims to address how innovation can help. Through a focus on Innovation in Learning and Education, we will be exploring what is being done, and what more needs to be done, to ensure that Hong Kong’s workforce is best-positioned to drive the city's future success. From new developments in the tertiary education sector, to innovative new approaches to primary and secondary education, we will be hearing from stakeholders across the education spectrum, from established companies on their changing corporate needs, investors, members of the education system and governing bodies, start-up innovators, and academia.

Who should attend: companies and employers looking at talent acquisition and development and their future workforce needs, as well as anyone interested in the innovation of education, CSR, social innovation, what is currently going on in Hong Kong and, those interested in helping make Hong Kong an even better place to work. This will be a fun, interactive and highly engaging event, not to be missed.
