The DAB had the honor of inviting Mr. C.Y. Leung, Vice-chairman of the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference, to host a zoom lecture titled “Tell the world the good stories of the country and Hong Kong in response to the problem of ‘I don't know’” as one of the lectures in the "Macro - 30th Anniversary Lecture Series" organized to celebrate DAB’s 30th anniversary.
Mr. Leung pointed out that many people around the world "do not know" about the changes and actual situation in Hong Kong. We, with a competitive edge in languages, have the responsibility to tell the world good stories of the country and Hong Kong.
On how to tell a good story, Mr. Leung stressed that in addition to having a firm position, we must overcome “anxiety over ability”, step outside our "comfort zone" and trust that "the reason is on one's side, fear not". He also suggested "letting numbers speak" when telling the world good stories of the country and Hong Kong.
Starry Lee, Chairperson of the DAB, believed participants of this lecture can learn from Mr. Leung’s sharing about the skill of using numbers in storytelling.
