VQ-1 Seven professional quotients for success in modern business

Introduction

SMP100 is a platform for members from small and medium practices (SMPs) to connect, exchange ideas, share experience and grow together. It is designed to be a community of SMPs that supports the professional development of each other to meet the evolving demands of their primary customers, the SMEs.

To kick off the HK SMP100, we have arranged a webinar and invited members working in SMP from Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia to share their experience on how they strive to survive under the impact brought by the pandemic.
