Through the real cases in their careers, three alumni speakers shared their feelings in serving the public with commitment. Unforgettable to Mrs. Yolanda Tong was how she proposed and planned local mega sport events and promoted the benefits of physical activities to citizens with creativity. Ms. Jenny Wong shared the challenges of promoting intellectual property rights protection through effective means under resource constraints. Seasoned communicator Ms. Rebecca Chan shared how she helped handle the crisis for the Bureau and mediate the tension with some stakeholders with her media skills.

During the panel discussion, three speakers answered various questions from the floor, including the skills for sitting the “Common Recruitment Examination”, the attitude to work with civil servants with years of seniority and so on.
