Dear Subscriber,
Greetings from the Chairman
Greetings from the Chairman
Dear All,

September 2023 goes down in history as a wild ride in terms of disruption: typhoon Saola and the Black Rainstorms in the first half of the month put some areas of the city to a halt with the most extreme weather ever experienced. As I am writing this, severe typhoon Koinu is approaching.

Climate Change & The Next Generation Workforce
Extreme weather is not unique to Hong Kong; our planet is changing, and the climate is changing, causing severe droughts and increased precipitation, changing how people and animals live and putting pressure on food and water supply. And how does this relate to your business?
I believe it will have a massive impact on your business if you want to attract the next generation into your workforce. The weather is just a reminder that change is upon us: the next generations will have to live through the environmental changes and solve the related challenges, and they already now care that the trajectory should be impacted through changes implemented with a strong ESG agenda. Companies with a strong ESG agenda will be able to attract the workforce of the future.

'Caring is the ultimate competitive advantage.'

58 days to the Christmas Party
We are excited that the festive season is approaching and in full swing, preparing a Danish feast for our annual Christmas Party, which will take place at 'Chalet' | The Langham on December 2nd. Same venue as last year, but with a new name. Tickets will be available as soon as we finalize the list of sponsors. If you want to become a Gold | Silver | Bronze sponsor, please email dcc@dcc.hk ASAP.

With that, I wish you all a fantastic month of October. Don't forget to sign up for the VIP experience: A Night at the Races.
