During the 1980’s, my wife and I started our own enterprise. For 30 years, step-by-step, we developed our business and extended beyond Hong Kong to Mainland China and overseas countries. After we were economically sufficient, we desired to contribute our extra wealth and abilities to promote a society of China that everyone in the society is living with freedom and dignity and assumes his or her own responsibilities, a society that although not perfect yet a tolerable one. Therefore, since 1997, we started involving in social services. We had involved in various philanthropic works such as disaster relief, poverty alleviation, student sponsorship and disease control and preventive measures. Currently, we focus our effort in two areas, management education and teaching entrepreneurship.
As entrepreneurs, who have been through the era prior and after the “cultural revolution” of China, and have also been experiencing both Chinese and Western social systems and living environments, we believe any healthy functional society is compiled of many individual organizations that are separate, diversify, competing and complementing with each other, and of mutual supervision. Each organization is relying on effective management to bring into full play of its social function. Therefore, nurture effective managers is the key to China’s economic development and social advancement. Thus our focus on management and entrepreneurship education.
We are honored that our ideas were appreciated by the “father of modern management”, Peter Drucker. He encouraged us, helped us, personally involved in our works, and even, before he passed away and left us, authorized us to denominate our management institutes with his name. We are fortunate to be able to increasingly gather like-minded people to join us and partner with us, so that we are never alone when accomplishing the missions and visions. Nowadays, knowledge workers are the predominance of different industries in this internet-marked information age. We see that social transformation, which in the pass was unattainable, is becoming possible and becoming a reality.
