The full-day event took place on March 24 at the Grand Hyatt Hotel and brought together esteemed education and industry leaders to share their insights with Hong Kong’s future generation.

Last month, the London Ball Foundation held its annual Education Summit and London Ball. In attendance were honourable keynote speakers and guests including Dr. Ko Wing-Man (Member of the Standing Committee of the National Committee of the Chinese Political Consultative Conference and Former Secretary for Food and Health of HKSAR), Mr. Sze Chun Fai, Jeff, JP (Under Secretary for Education of HKSAR), Mr. Brian Davidson, CMG (Consul General to Hong Kong and Macao), Mr. Victor Chu, CBE (Chairman and CEO of First Eastern Investment Group and Chair of University College London Council), Professor Anthony Smith (Vice-Provost (Faculties) of University College London), and Ms. Susannah Morley (Director of the British Council in Hong Kong).

A full day program with 22 speakers and more than 600 attendees, the Education Summit focused on three main areas: Future of Education, Health, and Arts and Technology Industries. Students from various schools across the city were invited to participate as the “Youth Voice,” connecting with the speakers in a more engaging and inclusive experience. During the day, the London Ball Foundation also presented the My Dream Winner Award as part of its Scholarship and Mentorship initiative. The My Dream Program allows Hong Kong’s youth to explore different career paths with support, emphasising a message of contribution to our society.

As the night set in, the event moved onto the prestigious London Ball, boasting more than 450 guests this year.
