GCNetwork Special Edition in collaboration with The DO


Come and join us for an opportunity to meet and mingle with members of GCC and the German and international business community in Hong Kong. Colleagues and friends are welcome to join. Do not miss this great networking event!


We are especially excited to team up with The DO to present you with a special edition of our GCNetwork, featuring an exclusive book reading session with Florian Hoffmann, renowned German author, social innovator and founder of The DO, for his book Our New World: A Journey to People and Places Building the Future Today.


Florian has been recognised with numerous awards for his work championing a vision of a global economy that is sustainable and innovative. In 2017, he was named one of the World Economic Forum's 100 Young Global Leaders.


About The Session

At a time when we are facing complex global challenges, many feel hopeless. But Florian Hoffmann argues the opposite is true: If you feel powerless, you should act. You will be surprised to see how much things will start moving.


Florian has been inspired by changemakers all around the world and decided to collect information from all these catalysts in his book, Our New World: A Journey to People and Places Building the Future Today, so they can serve as an inspiration to even more people. Read about young entrepreneurs, innovators, founders and leaders who have set the path for a better future, for people and the planet. The book is a springboard inspiring you to start DOing.


Sharing the actions of inspirational people from all walks of life, Florian showcases how everyone can concretely shape the new world around us, and encourages us to get involved.
