Internship Appreciation Ceremony 2010

July 13, 2010

Galaxy Entertainment Group (“GEG”) has always been supportive in cultivating local talents. Working closely with universities and institutes in Macau, GEG is proud to offer internship programs to broaden students’ perspectives on the current and future developments of Macau. Earlier, GEG hosted its “Internship Program Appreciation Ceremony 2010” to commemorate the distinguished achievements of its 14 interns. Held at the grand ballroom of its flagship property – StarWorld Hotel (“StarWorld”), GEG celebrated their achievements with a heartwarming video, a sumptuous lunch, and the presentation of “Certificates of Completion” and souvenirs.

Mr. Oscar Ho Man Cheng from Institute for Tourism Studies, Mr. Wong Pak Cheong from Macau University of Science and Technology and many of GEG’s senior management members, including Mr. Michael Mecca, President and Chief Operating Officer, Ms. Eileen Lui, Director of Human Resources & Administration, Mr. Trevor Martin, Senior Vice President of Human Resources and Administration and Mr. Gabriel Hunterton, Chief Operating Officer of StarWorld, joined the ceremony. In his welcome speech, Mr. Paul Temple, Vice President of Training and Development of GEG described the 14 interns as “some of the best since GEG initiated the program”. The success of the program can be attributed to the co-operation between the interns and colleagues of all departments. Mr. Temple said, “Since we initiated our Internship Program in 2008, GEG has selected and trained more than 60 interns. As we move closer to opening our “World Class, Asian Heart” “Galaxy Macau™” in early 2011, we will continue to expand our Internship and Fellowship Programs. We are excited and pleased to contribute to the ongoing education of local tertiary students and look forward to seeing them employed with Galaxy Entertainment Group.”

Two interns were nominated to represent their group in sharing their experiences at the ceremony. Dorothy Ji, who worked in the Food & Beverage Department, thanked all her colleagues at StarWorld for their help and encouragements. She feels valued and because of this program, she is now more confident about her future employment. Working at GEG’s Public Relations, Raven Kou said, “I thank GEG for being fully supportive and treating us as your family members. GEG is one of the very few corporations in Macau that offers such a comprehensive internship program, thank you for teaching us GEG’s ‘Asian Heart’ services and attitudes and for making this an unforgettable experience.” Kou said he highly recommended GEG’s internship program to other students.

GEG has always been committed in nurturing young people and contributing to enlarging the pool of outstanding talents in Macau. By offering young talents the opportunity to apply their theoretical knowledge to their day-to-day work, students can thus enhance their professional and interpersonal skills. GEG’s next internship program is about to start and with more than 200 local and international applicants –double the amount of last year, it seems clear that the general public and students’ alike, are confident in GEG’s internship training and development program. As a top priority of GEG’s corporate citizenship, GEG continues to enhance its training and development programs so we can provide our current and future team members with exceptional opportunities for their personal and professional growth.
