The Hong Kong Co-Working Council (HKCWC) is a platform for industry professionals or anyone curious about the industry to learn, investigate and discuss co-working trends and business practices in Hong Kong.

The objective is to explore the complex nature of the future of work, employee needs, different client segmentations and the key success factors of the business through thoughtfully curated series of networking events, fireside chats, round table discussions, and responses to current hot topics.

HKCWC is bridging industries, governments, investors, founders, CRE, HR, academia, business communities and entrepreneurs; and is a point of entry for overseas companies, individuals and associations into Hong Kong’s Co-working scene.

Join us in our first fireside chat series on the importance of community building across different industries. To bring further insights, we’ve invited Vicky Huffey, Ivy Wong and Richard Claydon to share how they’ve built successful businesses on the back of their communities.

Special guests are Deborah Negrash (WeWork), Jacob Feenstra (Campfire), Koen Betlem (Spaces), Marco Pellerey (the Hive), and Oscar Venhuis (theDesk).

Vicky Huffey (Managing Director Sassy)
Born and raised in the UK, Vicky arrived in Hong Kong in 2012 and fell in love with this diverse and buzzing city. She is an avid hiker, dragon-boater, happy hour participant, and general explorer, and Hong Kong feeds her curiosity in every way. Vicky works with Client Servicing individuals and teams who are seeking to develop collaborative business relationships and has over 20 years experience, in both corporate and independent environments, working with emerging leaders and high-potential teams across Asia and Europe.

Ivy Wong (Community Connections Consultant)
Unapologetically nosy and idealistically collaborative, Ivy is a passionate community connector. After polishing her strengths for five years at Lululemon, Ivy now works with various HK startups, helping to build their brands.

Richard Claydon (moderator)
Richard's research on organisational irony has received praise worldwide from leading thinkers in the management and leadership fields. He has taught leadership, organisational behaviour and change across a number of Australian business schools and has just finished designing a future of leadership MBA module for Macquarie Graduate School of Management, regularly ranked as a top-50 MBA school by the Economist and the Financial Times, for their new Asia-Pacific focused Global MBA programme.
