From fast-growing technology start-up to non-profit, I am now leading Teach For Hong Kong to nurture the most promising young leaders for education equity in Hong Kong

Henry has been the Chief Executive Officer at Teach for Hong Kong (TFHK) since July 2020, a for-purpose organisation that nurtures influential leaders to address education inequity through a full-time Fellowship program. Prior to TFHK, Henry has experiences in both corporate and NGO sectors.

Henry was previously the Vice President and Head of Greater China in Lynk, a global technology start-up backed by MassMutual Ventures and Alibaba Entrepreneurs Fund, focusing on bridging expertise for the world’s leading investment houses, top-tier consultancies, and conglomerates. He was responsible for Greater China market expansion and global key account development.

Henry is actively engaged in public and community service. He is currently the Member of the Quality Education Fund Sub-committee of the HKSAR Government, responsible for approving funding and proposals submitted by local schools and universities to scale up their quality education programmes. He is also part of the HundrED global community, responsible for working to identify and recommend education innovations that are changing the way our children learn.

Why do you want to be a part of the HundrED Community?

In my current capacity as the Chief Executive Officer at Teach For Hong Kong, I lead a community of 50 staffs and Fellows who serve 20 schools in Hong Kong. I need to keep myself updated with the global education practices so I know what we can offer to the students we serve.

Three innovations you would love for HundrED to know about. (and Why?)

The 3 innovations developed by our alumni which I am very proud of: - JUSTFEEL, a charity in Hong Kong aiming to transform the communication culture in schools and families, based on the Theory of Nonviolent Communication - Kinesthetic Classrooms, allowing students to sit on yoga balls during lessons to focus better - Affordable International Baccalaureate (IB) program for ethnic minorities
