Sands China and SKH Hold Financial Management Workshop

Team members increase their knowledge of financial planning and responsible gaming

                                                         


(Macao,  July 8, 2019) –
A group of 50 Sands China team members, including some of the company’s Responsible Gaming Ambassadors, learned about financial planning June 26 at a workshop at The Venetian® Macao’s Adelson Advanced Education Centre.


Co-organised by Sands China Ltd. and the Sheng Kung Hui Social Services Coordination Office, the Responsible Gaming Workshop – Financial Ability 2.0: Financial Management was led by Hong Kong Certified Financial Planner May Wong and two Certified Financial Social Work Counsellors from Sheng Kung Hui.


During the workshop, team members learned about the concepts of financial management, including personal financial risk assessment, savings, and investment, and discussed responsible gaming in the context of the financial risks associated with gambling. They learned to recognise credit card payment types and interest rates, and were introduced to some of the financial management service resources available to them.


Winnie Wong, chief responsible gaming officer and vice president of special gaming projects for Venetian Macau Limited, said: “Strengthening our team members’ financial management skills can have a significant impact on their overall well-being and quality of life. We were very pleased work with Sheng Kung Hui to offer this workshop to our team members, and we hope it has enhanced their understanding of financial management and the role that responsible gaming can play in living a lifestyle that is fiscally responsible. This knowledge will be invaluable for our Responsible Gaming Ambassadors as they continue to be of service to guests and visitors at our properties.”


Besides Wednesday’s workshop, Sands China also recently sponsored Sheng Kung Hui to organise another responsible gaming workshop on financial management for students from local universities on May 30.


The participants were highly engaged in the workshop, and expressed satisfaction with the facilitator, venue and the content of the workshop. Many of them mentioned how learning more about the topic was of great benefit to their programmes of study, which included social work, marketing and others, and helped them gain professional knowledge of the financial aspects of their future career fields.
