Alumni from Disciplined Services Share with Students their Work Experience and Insights

Event Information

Co-organised by the Alumni Affairs Office and the Office of Student Affairs, Chill Chat was successfully held on 27 September, gathering four alumni from the disciplined services to share with students their wealth of experience and insights in a cosy ambience. Alumna YY Ngan (Communication – Public Relations and Advertising), Head of School of Specialised Learning of the Hong Kong Police College, was invited to deliver a talk themed “Leadership Versatility vs Job Diversity”, to kick start the gathering.

In the talk, alumna Ngan shared her life experience and shed light on her work in the disciplined services. Drawing from her extensive pool of professional experience in the Hong Kong Police Force, she encouraged students to develop 3 attributes/attitudes that could help them become good leaders in their career – be amenable to authority (心悅誠服); be decisive (當機立斷), and act according to the situation (見機行事).

After the talk, alumna Ngan had a cosy sharing session with students on work experience and insights gained through the career journey. Three alumni also joined the sharing session: Alumna Anita Ko (English Language and Literature), Assistant District Commander (Administration) of the Operations Bureau, Tseung Kwan O District, alumnus Huma Chan (Business Administration), Senior Inspector of Police, Forensics and Training Division, Cyber Security and Technology Crime Bureau, both from the Hong Kong Police Force; and alumnus Max Wong (Physical Education and Recreation Management), Head of Discipline and Counselling Committee of Islamic Kasim Tuet Memorial College cum Senior Auxiliary Police Inspector. The event was also honoured by the presence of Dr Albert Chau, Vice-President (Teaching and Learning); Professor Henry Fock, Director of Student Affairs; and Dr Melanie Lee, Director of Alumni Affairs.

Both alumni and students were fully engaged in the event through enjoyable chit-chat in small groups. Participating students not only benefitted greatly from the alumni’s sharing but also managed to gain a better understanding of the disciplined services in Hong Kong.

Chill Chat, firstly introduced in 2021, is an innovative engagement platform where students and alumni can closely interact with each other in relaxing ambience. Through an interactive sharing session with our eminent alumni, Chill Chat provides student participants with the opportunity of widening their horizons in areas of personal growth, career development and network building.
