In his position as USYD Chinese Debating Club Team Leader from 2007 – 2008, Zhi Cong did an excellent job in his position and indeed was an valuable asset to our club.

Throughout the two-year co-operation with him in the Debating Club, it is undoubtedly that Zhi Cong is an outstanding individual with a strong character. He has the ability to produce impressive results in a wide variety of areas. During his position as a leader, Zhi Cong was responsible for training and supervising all the members and providing them debate skill seminar. In addition to his position, Zhi Cong is also one of our best debaters. With a very positive attitude, Zhi Cong had represented us in more than 5 tournaments in Australia and 2 international Chinese debate tournaments.
During that time, with a perfect attendance record, he felt volunteering was an important leadership role, in which he learned debating techniques, leadership, club management and communication skills. His experience at Chinese Debating Club provided him with the aptitude that he needs for a future career. I believe Zhi Cong is destined to be a leader in Banking area, and therefore is an excellent candidate for your group.
