Celebrating Women in Aviation: AsBAA Hosts Inaugural Dinner Honoring Women Leaders
The Asian Business Aviation Association successfully hosted its Women in Aviation Inaugural Dinner in Hong Kong on 8 March 2023 to celebrate International Women's Day. The inaugural dinner, hosted at the prestigious Club Lusitano, brought together prominent women in the aviation industry, including pilots, entrepreneurs, and business executives to share their insights and experiences.
AsBAA's Chairwoman Jenny Lau kicked off the event with a welcome speech, followed by a keynote address from Vivian Cheung, COO of the Airport Authority Hong Kong. A discussion panel featuring veteran business aviation entrepreneurs Diana Chou, Jolie Howard, Joyce Kee, and Jenny Lau, moderated by Amy Yang, was also held to facilitate meaningful dialogue on the topics of inspirations, challenges, sustainability, technology, work-life balance, and advice for young women.
Later in the evening, AsBAA's Director Anthony Lam hosted a fireside chat with Lily Fenn - a renowned aviation lawyer, pianist, and experienced pilot licensed in both airplanes and helicopters. Ms. Fenn shared her insights and adventures flying in Hong Kong, New Zealand, and Africa, offering valuable advice and unique tales of flight to the attendees.
