The Direction: No matter what to-be-EBs plan to do, which shall be discussed after the election, the team will achieve the goal without wasting time and resources. Ultimately, it shall utilize the strengths of the LC and its members. The Team: The AIESEC1011 team is a truly international one, among 21 members, some of them are from India, mainland China whilst some have been to AIESEC exchange and some have studied in other countries before. The cultural diversity environment is what AIESEC really should have. Sharing from the team: “I am very happy with the international environment in the team. The exchange returnees’ experience enhances the mutual understanding of culture. Being one of the international members, I am very comfortable in the team. I meet every individual in the team as to understand his or her perspectives well. With trust and understanding, I wish the team can really be a great team!” - Pooja Jhaveri, the elected LCP “I have been preparing for the AIESEC LR for more than 2 weeks, and it has been a really hard time. Though the pressure is so high, I felt very satisfied and sure-footed. I tried my best to make everything under my control and finish them before the deadline. I have gained a lot of knowledge of AIESEC and met a lot of new friends. The experiences that the EBs have shared with me are very valuable. So I think it is really worth putting my effort.” - Gilbert Chen nd

First Brand Audit Report Extract - Communications Team

In December 2009, a brand audit was successfully held in HKUST campus. 972 surveys were completed by HKUST students. The first brand audit aims to evaluate the current LC positioning and brand to see its alignment with AIESEC brand. Also, it aims to understand our LCâ€&#x;s stakeholder - students in campus to see whether AIESEC fulfills the needs of them.

Conclusions -

The majority of students who will get notice by AIESEC booth Local students Year 1 students Business students The majority of students perceived AIESEC: Correctly as an international and leadership organization Correctly that we provides Exchange opportunities Wrongly as a social organization which holds social parties. The behaviour of AIESEC members: Not effectively delivered to students The walking brand of AIESEC among members is not strong Our stakeholder – students: Put academic studies as the highest priority Put personal development as the 2nd highest priority which AIESEC can provide.

Recommendations Promotions:  Strategic promotion is needed to target science and engineering students o (E.g. Promotions at laboratories, class visits, canteens, etc.)  A larger emphasis on „personal development‟, AIESEC uniqueness and our global learning environment in promotions is recommended.  Giving live examples of AIESEC members in different AIESEC experiences is recommended to visualize the personal benefits that they can get when experiencing every part of AIESEC experience.  Promotion methodologies should be focusing on posters, emails and recommendations from AIESEC-member friends (which are the ways that students recommended) Behaviour Management of members: It is recommended to provide education and pipeline management on „AIESEC members.‟ Behaviour outside AIESEC, as word-of-mouth, has played a very important role for students in campus to know about AIESEC.

Candles and Chocolates aren’t just for Valentines WNCF sharing, newies track The warm candles brought us, delegates, in our home-group closer and tighter together. Around the soft flicker, we reflected ourselves as who we are; and what in the past made today's us. We wrote to our fellow group mates about their strengths and areas for improvement. And in return we saw our impression made to others. Those comments I had received were quite interesting and memorable. Those were frank words and honest feelings that were most enlightening. We also had an empowering afternoon with Francesca, one of the AIESEC's partners. Delegates listened to the establishment of her business by which she wishes to enrich one's potential. She shared with us her experiences living in different cultures; and her journey in looking for the inspiration of life. And chocolate is what she believes to be the art that connects people and gives us energy to reach our destiny. Towards the end of her presentation, each and every delegate was invited to stand in a circle and share what we had wished to do in the future. All of us were supported by Francesca and our peers, whether our dreams were to be an excellent housewife, or an officer in the United Nations. Having listened to such a passionate and positive woman, along with Francesca chocolate each of us received as compliments, I was deeply inspired; I felt loved; and I felt well. - Helen So nd

DRINK IT! --LC Party Drink it! The LC Party was held on 3rd February. Over 40 members from all the teams and some senior AIESECers attended the party to PLAY HARD after WORKING HARD at the LG4 Common Room! Thanks Selina and Victor for leading the thrilling drinking game and breaking the ice! All participants tried hard to throw their little ping-pong balls into the beer cups to make the other groups drink. And we had a good time dancing our AIESEC dance! We did not only share yummy food like pizza, snacks and coke, but also team-updates during the party. TR members from each team shared what they had done, their AIESEC experiences in the last semester and what they have planned to do in this semester. Everyone is proud of what AIESEC-LC-HKUST has achieved in just half a year! Last but definitely not the least, we ended our party with a remarkable “drinking competition”! It showed that no one should ever look down on young girls‟ capacity to drink as they have beaten the boys in many rounds! Nobody should hesitate to join the LC party! Come to our next one and indulge yourself in our “WORK-HARD-PLAY-HARD” culture! - Hana Wong

ICT Team Reflection ICT Team has done two great tasks throughout this year, which are the “InterChallenge” and the “2010 Youth Summit”.

InterChallenge We have tried many different tasks in InterChallenge and this really helps us to grow and be more capable in the future. There are so many uncertainties and stakeholders in this project, and we have to care about every one of them. We have also learnt what attitude should a member and a leader hold when we work as a team in project. We should always prepare for the challenges and contingencies ahead so that we can eventually come to the success of our project. “That have been a great chance for me to take the leadership role to facilitate my personal learning. Also, I am keen to learn how I can affect others and build a team to achieve our success in the ICT!” By MSN “Project Team is rather detached from the entire LC when compared with other areas. All of our team members are enthusiastic, energetic and able to develop a strong bonding with each other.” By Fiona

2010 Youth Summit The Youth Summit was a very precious opportunity for us to expose to social issues in Hong Kong. Everyone in our team did many researches concerning the social topics. In this self-learning process, we not only acquired a lot of knowledge but also learnt much more through sharing within our teammates. Because of our great effort, we were able to grab chances to represent InterChallenge to express our views on the stage. We were really glad that we have participated in the summit and represented the youth views. “It was my honour and pleasure to be one of the presenters and group facilitators on the topic of multi-culture and science. I have enjoyed and gained a lot from my participation in the 2010 Youth Summit. It was such a meaningful and unforgettable experience!” By Teresa “It‟s of paramount value to learn and understand what other people think about different social issues in Hong Kong. I have no regret in taking part in the events and I am very grateful to have accepted this challenge. This certainly is an unforgettable experience.” By David

EP Sharing

What is the unique and greatest value I can get from AIESEC Exchange? Will it be an invaluable trip which will change my life values? You can get the answers from the sharing of one of our EPs - Au Ka Ho Alcohol…

Hey AIESEC! My name is Alcohol. In the previous winter break, I went to Kochi, India, for my first DT AIESEC internship. The project was named “The Green Impact” and I was responsible for planting trees, giving presentations, and launching campaigns with NGOs.

And, the most unforgettable thing I learned from AIESEC Exchange is the unique Indian working style. For example, once we had a presentation at ten o‟clock on that day. They will only wake you up and inform you to go there immediately in that early morning. Therefore, we have no idea of what we are going to do in the coming days. AIESEC exchange provides me a great chance to cooperate with people from around the world. During the cooperation with people from different nations, I have learned that the westerners always react and think directly, whilst the Asians consider the others‟ feelings as their first priority.

We thus should always be culturally sensitive as to maintain a harmonious working environment. It is impossible for me to get these experiences from other exchange programs. Although there are ups and downs in the exchange, I will not regret for going to AIESEC Exchange. Though AIESEC is a place where you can get a lot of opportunities, the one who decides to get these chances to learn and develop is yourself.
