13 May 2024

Professor Dewey Yee, Professor of Practice from LMS Department, was invited to present “Active Thinking” lecture series from his LGT5172 Managerial Thinking and Skills Workshop subject for Early Career Professional Development at the Hong Kong Mandatory Provident Fund Schemes Authority (MPFA) on Thursday, May 9th, 2024.
During his presentation, Prof. Yee highlighted that success in life is determined by the ability to speak, write and the quality of thinking, in that order. He emphasized that active thinking starts with effective communication through speaking and writing. Furthermore, he advocated for an open-minded approach, encouraging participants to gather the information of facts rather than opinions.
Prof. Yee also stressed the significance of using unconscious mind to avoid being overwhelmed and empathized the importance of clarity and conciseness in communication, introducing the KISS (Keep it Simple and Smart) principle. In addition, he featured the value of active listening before engaging in a thoughtful reply to start the thinking process.
The presentation attracted over 100 participants, with 60 in attendance and 40 joining online from the MPFA, the eMPF Platform Company, Securities and Futures Commission and Insurance Authority. Feedback from participants was tremendously positive, with several participants describing the experience as “eye-opening”.
