On 21 September, the Young Solicitors’ Group (“YSG”) hosted a Joint Professional Networking Event titled “Exploring the World of Wines” which was well attended by members of the young groups, and their guests, of various professional bodies including Hong Kong Bar Association, The Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (Hong Kong Branch), Hong Kong Dental Association, The Hong Kong Institute of Architects, The Hong Kong Institute of Certified Public Accountants, The Hong Kong Institute of Planners and The Hong Kong Institute of Surveyors.
Held at a hip and trendy restaurant in Wanchai, the afternoon began with welcome remarks by Council Member and Chairman of the Standing Committee on Member Services Mr. Roden Tong, followed by a wine tasting session where a professional sommelier shared basic wine knowledge with participants and treated them a selection of six different wines.
Participants were given the opportunity to interact with the sommelier and meet new friends from different professions during the mingling and networking session which concluded the event.
This was a continuation of YSG’s history of collaboration with young members’ groups of other professional organisations. In view of the strong turnout, the YSG intends to organise more collaborative events in the future to help members engage with a wider network of professionals in Hong Kong.
