Based on this principle, our speaker, Po Chung (OBE, SBS, JP) will share key cross-over ideas which he has taken from art into the understanding, designing, creating and operating of his entrepreneurial life.

Chung is a successful entrepreneur and an accomplished artist. Since his retirement from DHL that he co-founded, Chung has devoted his time to community services for the development of arts and culture, management and general education, philanthropy and social entrepreneurship, creativity and innovation in Hong Kong. His service commitment has been recognized with numerous awards over the years including an OBE in 1995, a Silver Bauhinia Star in 2002 and a Honorary University Fellowship from the University of Hong Kong in 2008. His latest and probably most ambitious project is to organize the freshman liberal arts curriculum when the eight universities in Hong Kong convert from a 3-year to a 4-year undergraduate system in 2012.

Retirement has allowed Chung to refine the process for understanding, designing and managing life. To raise the consciousness and help others explore new life purpose, he founded The Good Life Initiative Foundation. In January 2009, he published his first book, The First 10 Yards – The 5 Dynamics of Entrepreneurship and How They Made a Difference at DHL and Other Successful Startups.
