Change Management - Executive Workshop for Hong Kong McGill University Alumni

This week I had a great time with an intimate group of my fellow McGill University Alumni at an after-work networking drinks session in Hong Kong.

I gave a short talk on the subject of Change Management at the invitation of Alvin Chung, Director of the McGill University Hong Kong & China office and the venue was the boardroom of Ascent Partners generously made available for our use by Ascent CEO Simon Mak.

The talk was well-received, with a lively discussion about the What, Why and especially the How of making change happen in organizations. I was particularly impressed by the willingness of the people in the room to share their stories, experiences and insights with each other. Many of the attendees took away practical actions and next steps from the conversation to try out in the coming days, which is always a gratifying outcome.

Equally gratifying was the chance to enjoy a fabulous tapas dinner with Alvin, Simon and Andrew Work, Executive Director of the Canadian Chamber of Commerce in Hong Kong - which I learned is the largest Canadian business association outside Canada. I'm already looking forward to my next visit!
