As an MDRT Honor Roll and Life member, Wave Chow, Senior District Director, AIA International Hong Kong leads by example and has groomed his team with 144 members achieving MDRT or above. Starting with four agency leaders in 2011, his team has expanded to 34 agency leaders with over 300 members.
In an effort to raise the image and professionalise the industry, he has focused on recruiting high-quality young talent. Today, as a Senior District Director, he is proud and honoured to lead an outstanding team of young professionals of which 96% of the team are tertiary graduates and above (70% Masters and Doctorates).
He is keenly aware of the fundamental need to stay abreast of industry development and global changes, and diligently improves his knowledge for that reason. To date, he has 14 professional qualifications including CIAM, CFPCM, ChFC, FChFP, LUTCF, and NLPMP. Wave has received numerous awards from GAMA and LUA.
His organisation actively supports mothers in the team through the establishment of the ‘Premier Lady’ department. Different measures and facilities have been implemented to cater to the needs of these working mothers, including a nursery and play room with instant broadcasting, to ensure that they can take care of their children as well as work with peace of mind.
Outside of work, Wave regularly shares his expertise and success principles as a passionate columnist for Hong Kong Economic Journal, Hong Kong Economic Digest and Etnet. To help fellow leaders in the industry, he also shared his strategies in his first book ‘Riding the Wave – The Key to Building a 100% MDRT Team’ which is now in its seventh edition.
Wave looks forward to reaching out to a wider audience with the release of the English version, Riding the Wave – The Key To Building A 100% MDRT Team in 2019.
Having benefitted greatly from the many distinguished people whom he comes across in life, he makes it a point to share his knowledge and views with others whenever opportunity arises.
