"Taking Command" Gala Evening with General Lord David Richards

Monday, 11 Mar 2024
6.30pm, Talk at 7.30pm
The Function Room, Ladies Recreation Club. 10 Old Peak Road, Hong Kong

In view of the overwhelming demand for the Annual Dinner with General Lord Richards, he has most generously agreed to do another event on Monday, 11 March, so that more Members are able to attend.

The Royal Geographical Society – Hong Kong is honoured to welcome General Lord Richards to speak on the theme of our chaotic and dangerous world – from Ukraine to the Middle East and beyond - and its origins in the demise of Grand Strategy, statesmanship and statecraft. 

In his talk, General Richards speaks of his years as a commander on active service in numerous countries on three continents, in an enlightening, controversial and often amusing talk that combines anecdote with description.

He then goes on to address the major wars and latent conflicts affecting global security, their causes and possible solutions.  This is followed by a “Fireside Chat” and Q&A session.
