    Mr John Budge arrived in Hong Kong in November 1978 as a newly qualified solicitor, with a three-year contract and has lived here ever since; not only building a successful career, but also a family, with his children born and raised in Hong Kong. He shared with the audience his personal story, his fascinating public services in Hong Kong.

    Mr John Budge mentioned that it made so much of a difference when people were batting on the same side. He expressed that when people were working together, it could be felt strongly that, that was the way forward. He continued that, people were all in this together to make Hong Kong a better place. He encouraged all of us to get involved.

    OHKF is also delighted to have invited Dr Moses Cheng, OHKF Governor and Senior Consultant, P.C. Woo & Co. to deliver the Opening Speech; and two Form 4 students from St Paul’s Convent School to join in the dialogue Session, with very thought-provoking and impromptu discussion with Mr Budge and Nury Vittachi, Editor of fridayeveryday.com, from the perspective of teenagers.
