Generation T Hosts Panel Discussion at The Conscious Festival

[HONG KONG – 23 April 2018] – Generation T partnered with Green Is The New Black to host a panel on sustainability in business at Hong Kong’s first ever Conscious Festival held at PMQ on 22 April 2018.

Moderated by Generation T Asia editor Lee Williamson, the panel “Generation T Presents: Daring to Think Differently” featured 2017 Gen.T listers Peggy Chan (founder of Grassroots Pantry), Arthur Lam (founder of Synergy Group Holdings International), and Tony Verb (founder of GreaterBay Ventures and Advisors). The speakers discussed how they pioneered change in their industries and shared their insights on how to tackle sustainability issues facing the world today, embracing environmental responsibility and creating positive impact.

Peggy Chan, founder of Grassroots Pantry, “I believe that if you want to disrupt the system then you need to understand the system. Our job here is to provide alternative solutions and make it sustainable and profitable.”

Arthur Lam, founder of Synergy Group Holdings International, “Figure out what your purpose is in life. Through your work and passion, you’ll be able to figure out how you’re going to affect yourself and others. When you’re able to affect others collaboratively, the entire world will change.”

Tony Verb, founder of GreaterBay Ventures and Advisors, “I believe that if we are about to make an impact in the world, we do need to think differently, act differently and put a little bit more energy than others out there.”
