Mr. Gary Teng, Head of Corporate Affairs, British Sugar Overseas Ltd

'I learned to think out of the box and hardly focused on my industry at all....unless I happened to be talking about my experiences. This gave me a completely different point of view and thinking that was new to me. By reviewing the case studies from the professors and listening to my class mates opinions on real life issues, it helped me to expand my own views and opinions that I can apply back to my own job. I had the joy to work with an international group consisting of Hong Kong Chinese, Mainland Chinese, French, Italian, Kiwis, Korean, Dutch and of course me being British. We all have different cultures which we learned from and we all represented a wide range of professions with industries, and many different positions. It was very rewarding on both a personal and professional level.'

Mr. Paul Dickson, Food & Beverage Manager (Racecourses), The Hong Kong Jockey Club

'The Leading for Success Consortium Program has been excellent, with a very broad coverage of business essentials to succeed.'

Mr. Kasper Staerk Olesen, General Manager, Maersk Broker Korea Ltd, Maersk Broker Asia Ltd

'The Leading for Success Consortium program brought together students from multiple backgrounds (culturally and professionally), which was big success factor and one which few other programs in Asia can provide. Being able to learn from the experience of others was one of the major success factors of the course. I benefited from the knowledge provided both by other attendees and the teaching faculty. The teaching faculty had professional experience, which was invaluable since they are not just imparting academic theories, but also practical solutions. This was a real value-add from the program. All modules came with a healthy quota of group work which tested our ability to lead amongst ourselves and then take that experience back to the workplace.'

Mr. Lee Quane, Regional Director - Asia, ECA International

'It is an excellent opportunity for those who have not stepped out of their work environment to refresh themselves and equip with the latest management techniques.'

Mr. Rajesh S. Nadkarni, General Manager, Assudamal & Sons (HK) Ltd

'It is invigorating to be among a group of varied and talented people, learning and reinventing our ways of doing things.'
