    The Hong Kong chapter held a fun event on 12 April in one of Hong Kong's microbreweries, Little Creatures where the key topics of discussion were bitcoin (Gavin Wyborn gave a fascinating explanation ) and how LinkedIn has replaced databases and recruitment agents. The result is not digital disruption but reliance on real personal networking (Celine Laffin told her personal story on this from a practitioner's standpoint). Apart from that, naturally the beer was good, the atmosphere and the food were good and above all the company was excellent. 

    Please look out for the next Hong Kong chapter event which will be in the summer.

    The Hong Kong chapter met on Wednesday 8th February for informal drinks in a  cool Italian wine bar with tapas in central Hong Kong . As ever the discussion was diverse and lively, ranging from management and tax issues to the realities of doing business in China. several networking opportunities and new connections were made. We somehow avoided discussing Trump and Brexit!

    Watch this space for the next chapter event!

    The Hong Kong chapter event on Monday 05 December 2016 was a roundtable discussion held at a private dining room in Sheung Wan, the guest speaker being Anthony Willoughby from Nomadic School of Business (his co-founder Josie Stoker being unable to attend).

    We had a fascinating and diverse group of people. The discussion ranged from principles to be learned from nomadic peoples, single-handedly running a factory in China, to crossing jungle for six days with local tribesman and hardly any food, to exploring sacred and meditative spaces in Hong Kong and the biography of China’s only female Emperor, Wu Zetian (which Vanessa Iloste is writing). We somehow managed to avoid Brexit and the US election. Several people commented that it was one of the best roundtables they had ever been to, in which there was a genuine sharing of ideas and no self promotion.

    On 10th February, 2015 PwC kindly hosted a breakfast for ATTA members and friends where the topic for discussion was the challenges facing SMEs in turnarounds during the M&A process led by Guy Facey, Chair of the Hong Kong Chapter.

    The debate generated some interesting discussion from the floor.  Topics included:

    • is due diligence worthless or worthwhile and how to get value out of the due diligence process
    • the need to build trusting relationships with the owners and the need to find out what the owner really wants
    • the challenges of the private equity timeline -PE firms often impatient with the time it takes to take a firm to the next level
    • the difference between Western company valuation and Asian company valuation
    • whether the owner fully realises the impact of the "next stage";  that the works starts at an IPO, not ends and that bringing in PE investment will result in them losing absolute control
    • what makes a good entrepreneur does not necessarily make a good middle manager
    • the number of SMEs in PRC with no succession planning, either because the children are not interested, not capable or are not qualified to take over
    • how can corporates avoid killing the businesses they buy

    With thanks to PwC for the generous hospitality.

    On 9th April 2014, PwC kindly hosted a Roundtable Dinner for ATTA members and friends.  Adam Salzer of PwC facilitated the discussion which kicked off with John Shelley, Chief Risk Officer, Asia Pacific, RBS Group and Anne Myong, WalMart China, sharing some of their experiences and discussing the tools and processes that proved most effective for them when working on transformations of large organisations in Asia. 

    The topic sparked considerable debate amongst the group of 18 transformation and turnaround leaders who attended and the conversation continued late into the evening.

    With many thanks to PwC for hosting the evening.

    An evening to welcome in the Year of the Horse was held by the Hong Kong Chapter on 12th February 2014 in Central.  There was a good turnout, despite the weather, and we were able to bring together old members, new members and potential members to network and learn more about ATTA.

    On 5 December, the Hong Kong Chapter got together for Christmas Drinks at Di Vino’s on Wyndham Street.  It was a great opportunity for members and non-members to get together, discuss the Conference and learn about our plans for the future before heading off for the holidays.

    On 14 May 2013, the Hong Kong Chapter was delighted to welcome ATTA Member, Advisor to the Board and Fellow of the Institute for Turnaround, Ian Gray. Ian is a highly experienced Transformation & Turnaround professional. He was previously a member of the Board of IfT so his insights to both the Board of ATTA and Hong Kong members were invaluable.
    Ian talked about how the marketplace has evolved over time and provided key insights into how to approach raising awareness of ATTA and generating business for its members.
