Certis Hong Kong and Macau was recently invited to be on an evaluation panel for the inaugural Greater Bay Area (GBA) Innovation Solution Day. Karl Chan, Head of Corporate Planning, Communications and Marketing represented Certis HKMO as a panelist.

The event was hosted by the Hong Kong Science and Technology Parks Corporation to connect Hong Kong real estate developers with tech ventures and talent from the GBA, driving innovation and transformation in the property industry.

Courage Under Fire

A total of 21 Certis Hong Kong and Macau colleagues were awarded the Certificate of Merit in Guarding Service at the Hong Kong Security Association Annual Award. 

When a fire broke out at Luk Yeung Sun Chuen, a temporary control centre was set up. The team comprising Tsui Tsz Kin, Fung Kwok Keung, Lam Pui Yee, Yiu Ting Chung and Wong Kin were arranged in different areas to monitor the evacuation progress, assisting injuries and leading firefighters to rescue trapped residents.

Fighting through the smoke-filled building, Tsui Tsz Kin reached the 24th floor and brought an elderly resident to safety. Due to Tsui’s act of courage, the resident only sustained minor injuries. Tsui even visited her in hospital and cared for her injuries. To show her appreciation, the resident wrote a compliment letter praising Tsui.
