I’ve had to pleasure to dine with distinguished individuals who have helped, over the years, to nurture leaders through research and to provide broad education in diverse disciplines.

Prof Lui Pao Chuen (seated far right) left the deepest impression on me although we only briefly exchanged. Despite his wealth of knowledge and experience, he took time to acknowledge the ideas I was sharing and to give his encouragement. A strong reminder for myself to listen to and value the voice of the younger generation. Respect. :)
