HONG KONG, Jan. 4, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- As a socially engaging corporation, Hong Kong Broadband Network Limited ("HKBN"), a wholly-owned subsidiary of City Telecom (HK) Limited, (HKSE:1137) (Nasdaq:CTEL) embraces interaction with the education community. We appreciate the gap between studying and working can be wide, so we hope to provide a bridge to ease this transition.

As a company, we often present at schools and universities and also proactively welcome educational tours of our operations. We have presented at or hosted events with INSEAD, Middlesex University MBA, The University of New South Wales MBA, HKU SPACE & The University of Western Australia, The National University of Singapore, EMBA-Global (The University of Hong Kong, London Business School & Columbia Business School), The University of Hong Kong MBA, Hong Kong Baptist University, The Hong Kong Institute of Vocational Education (Kwun Tong), Yan Chai Hospital No.2 Secondary School, Tak Nga Secondary School and Christ College.

Recently, Leo Fung, Associate Director of Technical Development, HKBN, gave a presentation at the Hong Kong Shue Yan University. During this session, he offered commercial insights into today's optical network development, from Bell's photophone to the next-generation cloud computing, as well as how the Internet changes the way we do business today. Leo said, "We are eager to share with the community our pride of network advantage. Not only are the youths our potential clients, but our potential Talents too. We hope the sharing session would inspire them with passion and commitment to technology advancement."

Dr. Brian Wong, Lecturer of Department of Business Administration, Hong Kong Shue Yan University, said, "This sharing session covers much useful information on the gradual development of Internet, which is truly beneficial to students. It further provides students with the knowledge how HKBN maintains high-quality Internet services and how they should utilize the services."

Besides being a "Technology" company, we are also well regarded as a "Talent" company, and will always look for ways to engage our next generation. Last month, our Ivy Lau, Director of Talent Engagement, led a team of CTI Talents, to host a 2-day Job Search and Job Interview Seminar & Workshop as guest speakers and mock-up interviewers. Over 100 secondary school students were offered invaluable practical exposure to real life job hunting experience, thereby greatly enhanced their self-confidence and sparked a "strive-for-the-best" mindset.
