The EDC was established in September 2015 to offer high quality executive development programmes and activities for individuals and corporations. An EDC Advisory Group was set up, aiming at guiding the EDC to provide competitive programmes and to increase public awareness of the EDC’s services – including programmes, courses, conferences, seminars, workshops, surveys and consultancy services.
The EDC Advisory Group is a mix of senior managers from academia, professional associations and commercial organizations: Dr. Haksin Chan, Head and Associate Professor, Department of Marketing, HSMC; Mr Chen Man Lung, COO and Executive Director, Culturecom Holdings Limited; Mr Bobby Chung, Chairman and Managing Director, Hong Kong Storage Limited; Prof. Desmond Hui, Professor, Department of Social Science, HSMC; Prof. YV Hui, Vice-President (Academic and Research), Academic & Research Office, HSMC; Mr Nick Ip, Executive Director, Eastern Culture International Limited; Ms Ashley Khoo, President, The Hong Kong Society of Financial Analysts (HKSFA); Mr Kenneth Lai, Chairman, Friends of LSE (the London School of Economics and Political Science), Hong Kong; Mr Leo Lee, Managing Partner / Deputy President, Benington Capital Limited / ACCA; Mr Alan Luk, Head, Hang Seng Bank Limited – Private Banking and Trust Services, Mr. Patrick Tam, Strategic Director, XGATE Corporation Limited and Mr James Tsien, Senior Adviser, Hutchison Port Holdings Limited.
