Leading and Managing Change: The Role of a Young Leader

Fung Scholars Leadership Conference 2012 was successfully held on Saturday 20 October in Hong Kong at PwC Executive Conference Centre. The theme of the year was “Leading and Managing Change: The Role of a Young Leader”. The Conference attracted over 100 Fung Scholars and Fung Fellows from 25 different universities all over the world.

The Conference comprised three sessions. In the first session, we were honoured to have Dr. Victor FUNG, Chairman of the Victor and William Fung Foundation and Professor Behnam TABRIZI, a Consulting Professor in the Management Science and Engineering Department at Stanford University sharing their experiences and expertise on how to lead and manage changes. Professor TABRIZI also rendered useful and practical methods on how to equip ourselves to be a true leader in the second session. Participants were overwhelmingly inspired by his life-changing workshop.

The Conference was concluded with the Local Chapter Session, in which committee representatives of the Chapters in Hong Kong, Singapore, Oxford and the Mainland China elaborated their visions, missions and plans in their upcoming tenures. Suggestions and comments were made by the audience, ending the fruitful and rewarding conference in a meaningful discussion.
