The Lingnan High-Flyers programme is an exclusive and highly selective programme designed to cultivate our outstanding students with an entrepreneurial mindset and leadership. The entrepreneurial mindset not only provides a lens for one to see problems as opportunities but also gives confidence for one to solve problems by one’s courage, creativity, resilience and ability to strive for higher achievements in life. A true high-flyer should be an impactful and influential global leader in the future, benefiting oneself, the community and beyond.

How to Apply "Design Thinking" in Daily Life?

22 Octobber 2020 (Thu) / 4:30 – 6pm / Zoom​

The world is changing rapidly.  Somehow, we cannot foresee what challenges we will face tomorrow, so the skillsets of tackling problems are essential.  The speaker will introduce the concepts and share how "Design Thinking" helps him in his service and business world to let students understand the whole structured approach process - to empathy, define, ideate, prototype, and test through daily examples.  Better personal development for each participant is the aim of this workshop.

Event Management

3 November 2020 (Tue) / 4:30 – 6pm / Zoom
As an international business city, there are packed calendars of events of all sizes. Every industry, including schools and charitable organizations, would hold events to market themselves, build brand names and partnerships or raise funds. The speaker will introduce the different nature of events, techniques on event planning and operations to students, as well as his/her experience in event management, operational management, evaluation, and post-event management. This workshop could enable students to understand event management better and facilitate them to make better event preparation.

How to present yourself properly on different occasions is always essential. This workshop will allow students to understand better the protocol in a formal setting, Chinese and Western etiquette, like table manners and wine tasting. The speaker will also interactively use big tests to help students correct the small movements and bad habits to enhance their cultivation.
