    All companies appreciate the importance of having highly effective managers, yet few have been able to train and foster them.


    Hang Lung has grown dramatically in the past eight years, and this success has been the result of both sound strategic decisions and strong management. In order for this growth to be sustainable, the Company is equipping its managers with interdisciplinary skills and broader exposure, which are key to succeeding in this new business environment.


    With this in mind, the Company organized its first company-wide Management Conference on April 27 (Friday) with the theme Time to Shine. Around 200 executives from Hong Kong and the Mainland participated in the oneday program that included sharing by high caliber speakers on management trends and the exchange of ideas in breakout sessions led by the Company's directors. 


    In his opening remarks, CEO Mr. Philip Chen said, "Change is the only constant in life. Understanding what's happening around the world and keeping up with changes are essential for the success for an individual and for the Company as a whole. We believe that through today's conference, colleagues will be inspired and be able to learn from other industry experts and apply the new knowledge in their work."


    Colleagues from different projects and departments were assigned into five groups to discuss a variety of management topics and present ideas on resolving a series of issues. Breakout sessions were full of ideas as participants engaged in devising solutions.


    In his closing remarks, Executive Director Mr. Adriel Chan highlighted the importance of bonding among colleagues, saying this could enable the Company to continue to maintain its leadership position in the market. "I am very happy to see that colleagues are engaged in the discussions, interacting and collaborating with each other. This reinforces our corporate culture of continuous improvement and doing it right. These have been the guiding principles of our success and an important element that we should preserve."
