My Gen­er­a­tion

Hong Kong Tatler - - Con­tents - —Jakki Phillips Ed­i­tor-in-chief

Edi­tor’s Note

What do ac­tress Jes­sica Alba, the Hong Kong gov­ern­ment and a bowl­ing ball have in com­mon? They’ve all been in­stru­men­tal in mak­ing the past 12 months a mas­sive suc­cess for Hong Kong Tatler’s Gen­er­a­tion T. Now in its third year, Gen­er­a­tion T is a plat­form that cel­e­brates the young lead­ers of to­mor­row not only in Hong Kong but across all eight Tatler ti­tles in Asia.

As well as pub­lish­ing the much-an­tic­i­pated Gen­er­a­tion T List each year in our June is­sue and on­line at hongkong­tatler.com, the plat­form con­nects dis­rup­tive tal­ents through fo­rums, talks, net­work­ing events, char­ity projects and power lunches.

One such event takes place this month when Gen­er­a­tion T Hong Kong teams up with Land­mark to host a fo­rum about sus­tain­able liv­ing. Lead­ing the con­ver­sa­tion will be ac­tress and eco-con­scious en­trepreneur Jes­sica Alba, who is best known for star­ring in TV se­ries Dark An­gel and films such as Sin City and Fan­tas­tic Four, but is also the founder of a bil­lion-dol­lar eth­i­cal goods firm, the Hon­est Com­pany.

The panel dis­cus­sion will in­clude Gen.t lis­ter Luke Grana, the founder of sus­tain­able ap­parel startup Grana, and will be mod­er­ated by Edi­presse Me­dia Hong Kong’s chief con­tent of­fi­cer and manag­ing di­rec­tor, Sean Fitz­patrick. For more de­tails about this in­vite-only event, turn to page 40, and read our ex­clu­sive in­ter­view with Alba on page 152.

It’s not just Hol­ly­wood stars who are build­ing re­la­tion­ships with our Gen.t lis­ters. In April we co-hosted a net­work­ing lunch with In­vest HK, the branch of the Hong Kong gov­ern­ment re­spon­si­ble for at­tract­ing for­eign in­vest­ment to our shores. It was an in­sight­ful and pro­duc­tive ses­sion that saw Gen.t lis­ters such as Arthur Lam, Aaron Lee and Gary Ngan con­nect­ing with CEOS of busi­nesses in the cre­ative in­dus­tries with a view to es­tab­lish­ing part­ner­ships.

And as for the bowl­ing ball, well, as much as we love hang­ing out with celebs and busi­ness lead­ers, noth­ing, and I mean noth­ing, beats a spot of Hawai­ian-style bowl­ing, so back in De­cem­ber we in­vited our Gen.t lis­ters to Tik­i­tiki Bowl­ing Bar in Sai Kung to raise money for char­ity while scor­ing a strike or two.

No won­der ev­ery­one wants to be a Gen.t lis­ter! Turn to page 102 to find out if you’ve made the cut.
