AmCham believes that education truly makes a difference to the outcome of our future. In a fast-changing, globalized and closely-connected world today, we require leaders with a global mindset and a multi-talented work force with high IT literacy. As a Chamber with leading professionals based in Hong Kong, AmCham opens our doors to all who want to learn and is committed to sharing the best practices and facilitating cultural exchanges.

A Conversation with an AmCham Leader

This is AmCham's outreach initiative that seeks to connect students with experienced global business leaders, allowing them to gain insights, develop a network, and access opportunities. Led by Former Governor Frank Wong, President, Asia of Scholastic, the programme arranges for high school students to meet with a pool of successful professionals. The format of the program is flexible, which is designed to allow each student to maximize the value of the conversation. Acting as mentors, the leaders are able to share career development advice or personal industry takeaways.

The program follows AmCham's mission in cultivating and supporting a vibrant international business community in cooperation with the local community because as members of the chamber, the business professionals who participate in this program are completing the circle of opportunity. The business world is rapidly changing to become more and more globalized, and Hong Kong has changed with it.

Recognizing Hong Kong's need to stay relevant and competitive, AmCham believes that this initiative is a fantastic way to invest in a thriving future generation of employees, entrepreneurs, and global business leaders.

What our interns say...

"Few organizations seem to accord as much faith in its interns as AmCham. In one month I visualized data, crafted an entire document with policy recommendations for the government, attended a conference on Hong Kong's Smart City initiative, zipped around Central interviewing various professionals, contributed to press releases, advised businesses on regulatory conditions, and met new friends as well as the most welcoming staff. Racking your brain every step of the way, AmCham throws you straight into the maelstrom that is international affairs."
