Head of The Table with David Thomas, HSBC

Supported by  Future Leaders Committee            

Head of the Table is a forum where a small group of young professionals from the Chamber get the chance to meet and question some of Hong Kong's leaders from a variety of fields over dinner. Previous events were hosted by many of Hong Kong's leading lights, including Rupert Hogg of Cathay Pacific, Mark Greenberg of Jardine Matheson, Chris Harvey of Accenture, Jeremy Sheldon of JLL, Stuart Tait from HSBC Group  and Dr. Anne Kerr from Mott MacDonald.

Head of the Table gives young professionals the opportunity to interact with senior business leaders of companies or organisations outside their own, and at the same time mix with other like-minded emerging leaders.

The next Head of the Table will be hosted by David Thomas, General Manager of HSBC Group and the Head of Human Resources, Asia-Pacific.
