Alumni and friends spent a cheerful evening networking with each other

 

On 13 December, the Alumni and Friends Meet-up in Shenzhen welcomed a full house of over 150 alumni and friends to learn and network in the Ballroom of the Four Seasons Hotel Shenzhen. Business School faculty and alumni spent an enjoyable evening gaining insights from three inspiring presentations and networking over light refreshments.

With the theme “The Role of Technology to Entrepreneurship”, the event featured three eminent speakers:

  • Prof. Shen Hao (Professor of the Department of Marketing and Director of the MSc Programme in Marketing), who gave an interesting talk on “The Impact of Technology on Consumers”

  • Prof. Kevin Au (Associate Professor of the Department of Management and Director of the Centre for Entrepreneurship), who delved into a highly relevant topic: “Shenzhen-Hong Kong Entrepreneurship: Conundrum and Compatibility”?

  • Mr. Kevin Li (MBA alumnus and Co-founder and CEO of VoiceAI Technologies Co. Ltd.), who led an intriguing discussion on “The Voice AI Trend and Its Future”

From establishing an entrepreneurship ecosystem to influencing target customers, the speakers shared how various technologies, including artificial intelligence, can enable Shenzhen and Hong Kong to leverage each other’s strengths and build a sustainable future for businesses.

“This is a very special occasion for us, bringing CUHK Business School to Shenzhen,” said Business School Dean Prof. Kalok Chan. “We hope that our alumni and corporate partners appreciate our desire and efforts to connect them with the Business School and with each other. Together, we can build a stronger and closer working relationship with businesses in Shenzhen, one of the fastest growing top-tier cities in mainland China.”
