Co-Chairman, HKAHF and Co-Chair, WOH Committee
Jo Soo-Tang graduated from the University of Sydney, Technology with a double degree in Criminal Law and Business, gained her Masters Degree in Communications from Sydney University and holds a Hotel Management Degree from Intercontinental Hotel School, Sydney. Jo previously worked as head of marketing and communications for two multinational corporations. Prior to her corporate roles she worked at Edelman PR, Weber Shandwick in HK and ran her own consultancy, ExcitePR in both New York and San Francisco.
Jo comes from a long heritage of civic minded individuals and, as a third generation volunteer, believes passionately in caring for others and diving back to the less fortunate. She has been a volunteer of HKAHF for over 18-years. Since Jo took up the position as Co-Chairman, she has launched the Cancer program (in conjunction with the Queen Mary Hospital) in April 2015 and the Cataract program in September 2015. Her newest endeavour will see the launch of another Cancer initiative, focusing on the New Territory/West Cluster area under the Tuen Mun Hospital, followed by a new Elderly Dementia Programme, a Breast Screening Programme and a Health Promotion Programme. Amongst all of these worthy causes, Jo also founded ‘Women of Hope‘ (WOH), Men of Hope (MOH) to recognise the influential women and men who champion the cause for social justice for children and the local community.
Jo’s latest personal business adventure is Wellness 360, which brings together health professionals to advocate healthy living through fitness and natural goodness. As well as working tirelessly for those who need help the most and establishing her own consultancy business, Jo is also a mother to three young children. Jo’s belief in giving back to others extends to not just to the HKAHF, she is also an active contributor to other non-profit organisations and educational bodies such as Hong Kong University (Faculty of Medicine), Splash Foundation, Allergy Free Asia and encourages others to share the same commitment and understanding that she herself has.
