Event Details

"Two roads diverged in a wood, and I— / I took the one less traveled by, / And that has made all the difference."

There are different career decisions that one has to make at different crossroads in their lives. Even when we know what we want and how the world works, you or the environment might change. Sometimes, you might be even thrown to a curve ball leaving you feeling unsure about how to move ahead.

Meet the two speakers whose names can get pronounced incorrectly here in Hong Kong, but both enjoying an "alternative" path that feel normal to them. One's a comedian trying to find the funny nuances in the world around him. The other's helping people realize the world is more diverse than even their wildest dreams.

Comedian Vivek Mahbubani and Conscious Entrepreneur Oskar Valles will come together to discuss how they got to where they are and why it's important to realize you can still be successful without having to shave daily. You'll hear about some crazy failures as well as scary moments where they doubted themselves but somehow things worked out.

So join them to hear about their adventures and watch them end the chit chat with less hair on their head but probably more enthusiasm in their souls. The discussion will be moderated by Aditi Jhaveri, Lecturer at The University of Hong Kong and advocate for diversity and inclusion.
