Speaker Programme

Prominent personalities in the society had been invited to speak to members on a regular basis to share their views and experiences on topical issues and topic of our members’ interest. These included: Managing stress and depression, domestic violence, alternative medicine, the progress of breast cancer treatment in Hong Kong, helping the Sichuan earthquake victims etc.

Dr Ava Kwong, Consulting Assistant Professor at Stanford University School of Medicine, and Chief of Breast Surgery Division, Queen Mary Hospital, speak to us on "breast cancer risks and new advances in early diagnosis and prevention".

Mr KC Kwok , Hon Senior Research Fellow in the School of Economics and Finance, University of Hong Kong, is our first guest speaker for the year 2009-2011. The topics Mr Kwok covers on 4 November 2009 range from interesting anecdote during his days in the HK SAR Government as the Government Economist, to the dollar peg, property market, global recession and asset bubble. Participating members and friends are much impressed by Mr Kwok's articulate delivery, sense of humour and the breadth and depth of his knowledge of the local and global economies.

On 14 Mar 2012, the much-celebrated Polar Researcher and Founder of the China Polar Museum Foundation, Dr. Rebecca Lee, shared with 34 Zontians and friends her decades-long observations and learnings from living and conducting scientific, environmental research studies at the poles. As the first woman explorer to reach the Arctic, Antarctic and Mount Everest, Rebecca’s talk was charged with a quiet but exceptional passion and positivity, though the scenarios she painted were gloomy. We all got away with a deepened respect for those who made sacrifices for the wider good of human kind and a renewed commitment to do our best to protect our environment.
