KBC Awards Ceremony

A celebration of achievements in 2020/21
Yuhuang Ou

On the 28th of April, 2020, the first ever KBC Awards Ceremony was held to celebrate and recognise the impressive achievements of our committee members.

In spite of the unforeseen challenges posed by the pandemic, our resilient and adaptable committee persisted in a situation where others would have relented.

To recognise the great strides in inspiring, educating and connecting our members to the world of business, we awarded the most outstanding individuals and projects for their exceptional performance and ingenuity.

Daniel Fang
Vice President 2020/21
