Hong Kong’s only association of in-house counsel run for in-house counsel by in-house counsel
MESSAGE OF THE PRESIDENT AHEAD OF THE NEW MEMBERSHIP YEAR
Another year has passed and so very quickly. At HKCCA, we continue to strive to bring the in-house community together through various events. This year, in addition to meeting each other at lunchtime seminars, members have played badminton together, raced in the Southern District Beach Run, traded war stories with the Bar Council, gone on weekend hikes, and heard inspiring stories of former lawyers who pursued their dreams in other fields. We continued to present our perennially popular series, and one of my favorites, Meet the GC. Former HKCCA ExCo member and GC of MTR, Gill Meller, told us about her interview with Mohamed Al-Fayed. Brett Graham, GC of Morgan Stanley Asia, told us to let personal life intrude on work since work intrudes on personal life. I’m going to adopt that perspective! Finally, Edith Shih, GC of CK Hutchison Holdings, demonstrated how talent, education, hard work and a little luck can go an extremely long way in building a career.
