HML's Success Stories
Facing Challenges to Stay Abreast of Industry Developments
After completing his internship with HML, Kelvin subsequently joined the company several years after he graduated. He was quickly promoted to the position of Event Manager 22 months later, responsible for planning and co-ordinating all kinds of events from international conferences, mega exhibition, trade fairs to meetings. In his free time, Kelvin is constantly upgrading himself with further studies. When he represented HML in attending a training course for professional in the international convention industry in Belgium earlier in 2015, he was the youngest staff member in the company to be nominated for overseas training.
“I love meeting different business partners from all over the world, and enjoy the process of planning an event and communicating with event organisers. My work at HML has allowed me to learn about the cultures of different countries. Every day brings new learning opportunities, and it’s great for my long-term development.
Competitions Broaden Horizons for the next Celebrity Chef
Bandai initially worked in the banquet kitchen of the Food & Beverage Department when she first joined HML, and was promoted to Commis No 2 in only two years, responsible for the Japanese dishes of the buffet at the Congress Plus. In addition to promoting self-improvement among staff, HML has always encouraged them to participate in competitions. To this effect, Bandai participated in Asia’s largest culinary competition, the “Hong Kong International Culinary Classic” and won Bronze in the Under 25 age group in both 2013 and 2015.
