Daily work & career prospect of an IRO

TV program interview featuring the IR profession
How often do you talk about your profession of investor relations and your friends ask "What is that?"
In the aim to let the mass know more about the IR profession, we have recently arranged a few interviews by a TV program "Success in Career" (職場制勝) with Eric Yau of Link REIT, Hamilton Cheng and Danita On of Chow Tai Fook and their IR team, and Dr. Eva Chan of HKIRA. The interview program featured their daily  IR work, sharing of how they have become an IRO, and the career prospect of this profession. The program would help initiate interest and concern to the occupation of IR, and hence attract new blood.

The interview was first broadcasted at 9:30 pm, 13 July 2018, on Hong Kong TV channel 85, the TVB Finance & Information Channel. Replay is available on hkira.com with English and Simplified Chinese subtitles.
