There are a lot of talents within the dragon network and we did not have proper chance to communicate our thoughts. This is the first gathering of this kind that we hope to come up with some social projects and make little sparkle into burning flame.
The dinner was held on 31st October, the Halloween night in Kowloon Union Church Space. The founding President of DragoNation – Clive Lee (Dragon 100 2005) kicked off the meeting by giving a brief summary of the birth of diversity dinner. It will be a continuous series organized by the birthday boys and girls in the committee every month. Clive has also set out some ground rules for this discussion. He shared 2 very interesting projects with the group, please join yourself or recommend them to your friends!

Jamie Chiu (Dragon100 2013) warmed the audience up with her ice-breaking game. She also talked about the upcoming coaching café event. When you search on facebook, you will find the idea of “A Person A Coach” 一人一教練. Life could be very simple and straight forward when you keep on discovering more about yourself. Coaching café was formed by a group of dedicated & innovative coaches. They are willing to spend 30 minutes with people like you and I for an organic conversation and make a difference.
Yoda Kwan (Dragon 100 2013) would like to share her experience in Social Welfare Department and Agency for Volunteer Services. She also consulted the group for the idea of a book publication project originated from the External Affairs Committee.
