Any challenges can be daunting. But it is only by embracing challenges and going beyond what we think we can do, that we can grow as individuals and broaden our career horizons.
That’s why AsiaWorld-Expo is such a great place to work. They understand how people grow, and they provide endless opportunities to learn and develop new skills. For example, I was recently given a chance to rotate from Venue Operations Department to Venue Services Department. This was a challenge for me, but it enabled me to gain hands on experience in security, logistics, transportation, housekeeping, landscaping and pest control services management. This in turn helped me develop valuable new skills and increased my confidence to take on even tougher challenges.
AWE is one of the world’s major conventions and exhibition venues and is by far the largest indoor stadium in Hong Kong. Hundreds of mega events are held here each year and running service logistics for them is no easy task. We have to prepare a holistic plan that covers everything from crowd-flow, to time management and staff arrangements. This has been a huge challenge for me: both mentally and physically. But I can’t describe the deep sense of satisfaction of bringing it all together in the end.
Before joining AWE, I never thought I could push my own boundaries this far. I have learned so much, and in many ways far exceeded my own expectations.
