As team leaders, we experienced that business operation is full of difficulties. Throughout the process, we need to communicate with various parties, such as to communicate with the supplier about the price, quantity, quality and transportation issues, to deal with all the details. During the operation of lunar new year fair, we have to check the record of daily revenue and sales details to adjust about sales strategy such as prices, packages and promotions.

After trial and error, we finally finished our products and were all sold out in the lunar new year fair. More and more visitors purchased our products and appreciated our creativity, which created our successful experience and enhance our confidence.

Participant (Tang Shiu Kin Victoria Government Secondary School)

 

At the beginning, I felt puzzled and nervous to collaborate with newly met schoolmates throughout the whole program. We all have learnt to communicate, to cooperate and to contribute our strengths, in order to finish all the tasks. Although we contribute so much in the program, and in return it is encouraging to us that we gained a lot of successful experiences and outcomes.
