Mulan Awards Dinner 2018

David Stringer-Lamarre, MD of FortisCL was pleased to have been the Co-Master of Ceremonies with Adelina Zhang for the 2018 Mulan Awards Dinner held at the Oriental Club.

The Mulan Foundation Network aims to recognise and honour the achievements of Chinese women in the UK and elsewhere through Annual Awards and in the process build up a global network of top and successful Chinese women and young Chinese women on the way up, for networking, mentoring and to support and help each other as well as contribute to the wider community.

The pre-dinner drinks included an opportunity for a lucky few to undertake the art of Sabrage; removing the top of the neck of a bottle of Champagne with a sabre. This was lead by two Connetables of the Confrerie du Sabre d’Or, Luis Hui and Tim MacAndrews. David Stringer-Lamarre became a Sabreur in 2015.

The formal events commenced with a welcome address by Mei Sim Lai OBE DL, the Chairman of the Mulan Foundation Network.

This was followed by the award ceremonies.

Chen Wang, soprano, entertained the guests with several operatic arias.
