Engagement and Mission:

The AustCham Young Professionals (AYP) Committee represents the needs and interests of young professionals by positioning them as leaders, entrepreneurs, and advocates for the Hong Kong community through community engagement, leadership development, and networking.

AYP offers an outlet for professional development, best practice sharing, cross sector exposure, mentoring and networking in a social setting for professionals working in Hong Kong. In addition to our regular chamber events, the AYP aims to organize both business and social events tailored specifically for members under the age of 35.

Looking to the Future:

Our Goals

  • Cultivate AYP members' development as future leaders through various young professional development focused events and programs
  • Provide a networking platform for AYP members to connect with the business community of Hong Kong
  • Extend AYP members' networks with access to peers and accomplished senior executives from various industries
  • Promote areas of interest of AYP members within the chamber

Our Events

The AYP is looking to continue the momentum we have built with the CEO Series, by continuing to draw high calibre speakers with topics relevant to young professionals. We are building on the Chamber’s CSR platform, incorporating aspects of community outreach and philanthropy.

Some of our past events include:

  • CEO Series featuring high calibre speakers with topics relevant to young professionals including Angus Armour, CEO & Managing Director of AICD; Alan Joyce, CEO of Qantas; Justin Madden AM, former Victorian Government Planning Minister and Dylan Alcott , Founder of Get Skilled Access and more.
  • Practical skills workshops (e.g. presentation, leadership, financial planning)
  • Joint events with other Chambers of Commerce to enable cultural exchange
  • Seminars organised by AYP members
  • Social gatherings organised by AYP members

Who we are

Whether you are new to Hong Kong or already living here, we always welcome new members who are looking to expand themselves professionally and to be part of the AYP community.
