Eric Lam - Hong Kong

Course: Master of Logistic Management
University of Sydney
Sydney, New South Wales

I always longed to live in Australia ever since I went on a holiday. My dream came true after I received an opportunity to study in Sydney a few years later. Australia is a lovable place with sunshine, good weather and beautiful landscape that you just cannot help but fall in love with. The diversity of cultures makes this country unique and a very peaceful place to live. It has a sophisticated and well-run education system where students can choose to study the subjects they are interested in. It is this flexible education feature that allowed me to enjoy my study and prepare myself for my future career.

My aspiration was to establish my own business and have a brand of my own. With this in mind, I decided to further my study in the areas of marketing and logistics upon completion of my bachelor degree in health science. After graduation, I worked for a food trading company as a marketing executive where I acquired experience in running a business, and later went on to establish my own brand of frozen yogurt.

The five years I spent at university were definitely an enjoyable experience. It was also the most vivid highlight of my time living in Australia.

Australia has an array of reputable teaching institutes which attracts many overseas students each year. I valued the professionalism of the professors and teaching staff who, with their wealth of work and teaching experiences, provided me with in-depth knowledge both theoretically and practically and strengthened my logical thinking and problem solving skills.

Aside from formal education, I got involved in societies and clubs at university which helped my time management, communication and organisational skills. I broadened my social networks and developed good friendships. One of the most enjoyable activities was to hang out with my friends and go on road trips where we drove outside of the city and visited different towns.

The experience and knowledge that I gained in Australia has certainly inspired me to develop a solid business model and to implement the necessary marketing strategies into my business. I admire the Australian lifestyle. I have even adapted this as an essential element into my store in Hong Kong, customers enjoy their time in a relaxing environment.
