Chris Brown

Founder & Director

ReThink HK & the ReThink Foundation

Chris Brown

Founder & Director

ReThink HK & the ReThink Foundation

Chris has 19 years of experience working on large-scale business events. Originally from the UK, Chris has lived and worked in Hong Kong since 2015.

Chris moved to Hong Kong to establish a North Asia office for a London-based trade expo organiser and launch a series of digital transformation events. The challenges of living sustainably and a developing concern around the exponential threats of the global climate emergency compelled Chris to “rethink” his own personal contribution to Hong Kong and how he could best make a positive impact on a city he now proudly calls home.

Chris conceived, designed and launched the ReThink HK event during the first part of 2019 – undeterred by the challenges faced by live events at that time, due to civil unrest, the new event concept for uniting the full business and sustainability ecosystem, championing positive action and shared responsibility received excellent support. The inaugural 2020 event was, unsurprisingly, delayed due to Covid but finally ran, in-person, at the K11 Quarry Bay with 450 attendees and all delegate fees were donated to local charities.

Chris’ experience in hosting content-led expo-style healthcare events in the UK, where partnerships and collaboration were crucial to scale and success, provided the foundation for Chris to widen the supporting-network of organisations and sponsors for ReThink HK. The event was moved to the HKCEC for the 2021 edition and resulted in Hong Kong’s best attended event dedicated to the business of sustainability, with over 2,200 attendees. Chris is proud to have maintained the event’s impact pledge; with all delegate fees contributing to impact projects with local Hong Kong charities.

Working alongside the Business Environment Council, Consulates and trade promotion offices, Chambers of Commerce, specialist industry associations, NGOs and action groups the collective ambition for ReThink HK is to accelerate change in Hong Kong – the event returns for its third edition this October at the HKCEC, will host over 3,000 attendees and aims to be at least carbon neutral.

Chris received a Bachelor’s degree in International Business and Italian from the University of Plymouth (UK). Chris is a member of the British Chamber of Commerce’s Social Sustainability Committee, sits on the Executive Committee and the Sustainability sub-committee of the Hong Kong Exhibition & Convention Industry Association.

My Sustainability Goals for 2022:

  • Greater action from businesses to contribute towards to a more sustainable HK
  • Encourage other event organisers to commit to sustainable solutions
  • Demonstrate that businesses be operated profitably and with purpose

A self-grown entrepreneur with over 15 years experience working across the creation of brands, distribution and product sourcing in the home and kitchenware sectors.

Born near Manchester in the UK I was brought up with a strong ethos on caring about the environment and sustainability. I was often found on the allotment at the weekends growing organic fresh fruits and vegetables and learned to appreciate nature from a young age.

I aim to make a difference every day, big or small, towards respecting and treasuring nature, improving our lives and well being on this lovely planet.

My Sustainability Goals for 2022:

I want to see Hong Kong work together to strive towards carbon neutrality with the government actively getting involved to support local initiatives and assist to create more jobs for the local community. Recycling Infrastructure should be streamlined to allow an efficient cycle of consumable products use, drop-off and final recycling here in Hong Kong to close the loop.
