Timeless Leadership - Shine On
Sir David Akers Jones (DAJ) has committed his life to the development of Hong Kong and the welfare of the poor since 1957. His achievements have been beyond just leading the Government and supporting the Governor of Hong Kong when he was Chief Secretary. Sir has been continually active in community works and has been instrumental in leading the development of Hong Kong in new towns like New Shatin, Discovery Bay, or the opening up of Hung Hom Cross Harbour Tunnel among others. He was there during the 1967 riot and found ways to bridge the many divides, including establishing the District Councils. He has started many new social enterprises such as Wuzhiqiao, Outward Bound, Invotech, the Business and Professionals Federation among many.
Sir David has been second to none in bringing together young and old, professionals and the general communities, start-ups and corporates, to define Hong Kong. His understanding of Chinese culture and mastery of Chinese dialects has meant he could connect the Chinese people in a unique sort of way. On 9 June, a special tribute was paid to Sir David by his many proteges. A series of new timeless leadership competencies was subsequently created and which, would form the foundation for the development of game-changers and global systems leaders to come.
The Late Sir David Akers-Jones,
GBM, KBE, CMG, JP
Founding Honorary Patron
”Hong Kong is one of the best places in the world for entrepreneurs. If we can build Hong Kong in this chaotic world before 1997, and feeling the stones every step of the way; then, you surely can. Go forward and ask why not!"
Because the world of space is developing rapidly around the world, the Board needs global experts and advisors to help members of the Board understand the latest development and implications arising from the discovery and application of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. At least three dozen experienced space experts have been advising the Academy since its establishment.
The first 100 members who have signed up to the Lifetime Membership will be known as Chartered Members. Collectively, these founding members, and regardless of the year they have joined, have helped to establish the OASA headquarters in Hong Kong. Chartered members are important members to the OASA team. They believe the future belongs genuinely to the courageous, adventurous, and entrepreneurial...to the young man and woman, starting from Hong Kong, who are pioneers in the NewSpace Economy.
Chartered members are unique because these are the individuals who had seeded and invested in OASA when the Academy was just a concept. These founding members hold a special place in the history and heart of OASA, and perhaps for Hong Kong and the rest of the world. They have energized the founding team, and collectively, they turned their ethos into reality. These founding members and their unyielding exploratory spirit fuelled the true nature of entrepreneurism; they will be inducted into OASA’s Founding Committee of 100, our Hall of Fame.
