The Executive Centre proudly sponsors Royal Geographical Society’s annual event


The Executive Centre was delighted to be the lead sponsor of the Royal Geographical Society(RGS) HK’s annual dinner held on 13 November 2014 at Hong Kong Football Club. Well-attended by over 600 RGS members and guests, the event featured an inspiring address made by Paul Theroux, one of the world’s most prolific travel writers and novelists.

RGS HK is the Hong Kong branch of the Royal Geographical Society, aiming to provide a forum where members can regularly meet and listen to leading local and international speakers from the world of geography and related sciences, exploration, travel, research, the environment and conservation.

Paul Theroux has virtually invented the modern travel narrative by recounting his grand tours by rail through Asia, Europe and the Americas. In his address at the annual dinner, he spoke of his year-long journey through China in the 1980s, recounted in his famous book Riding the Iron Rooster, now a classic of travel literature. He then presented his countless journeys around China since, reflecting on how the country has changed since that epic trip three decades ago in the era between Mao and Modernism.

Gigi Liu, Corporate Director, Marketing & Communications at The Executive Centre, said, “It’s our honour to sponsor this annual event in support of RGS HK’s mission to promote geographical research, education, fieldwork and expeditions. All guests attended were truly inspired by Paul Theroux’s speech which highlighted the value of travel-based, expeditionary learning in building up one’s skills, confidence and life experience.”
