Welcome Address

Mrs Rebecca YUNG
Chair, Organising Committee of Social Enterprise Summit

This year, two heavy-weight keynote speakers from the United Kingdom and the United States are invited to bring new ideas and inspirations to our audience. They will talk about the latest operation models of social enterprises, how social problems can be relieved by social innovation and the practical cases of social entrepreneurs.

The Organising Committee of the Summit will also have a deep dialogue with the team from Narada Foundation, as both of us are celebrating our 10th anniversary this year. The dialogue will sum up our arduous efforts over the past ten years so that we can join hands together to find answers for a better future.
