To raise the understanding on application of SCS in human resources development, two guest speakers from Catering and Jewellery industries were invited to share their experience on establishing structural internal training system based on the QF platform and developing SCS-based programmes for building up skillsets of their staff in the sharing session. The guest speakers were Mr Wallace LI, Head of Food & Beverage Operations (Racecourses & Special Projects), The Hong Kong Jockey Club, and Mr Terrence LAI, Training Manager of the Lukfook Group. The meaningful exchange on the applications of QF and SCS in human resources management aspects gave insights to the participants of Travel industry for their future planning.
