In Dr. Lee Shau Kee’s remarks, he talked about the secrets to his success. He said the keys were hard work and perseverance, the ability to create more wealth from one’s ‘first barrel of gold’, and not committing too early to marriage before establishing a successful career. In addition, Dr. Lee explained the goal behind his philanthropy: “I will seek to make the maximum return on the minimum amount of donations and make sure that my charity donations will benefit as many people as possible.”
