Professionals have the knowledge and expertise recognized and valued by society.  Professionals play a key role in ensuring public trust in specific professions and practices.

The greatest challenge facing in the youth generation is that of apathy.  People at large have turned into human machines.  Their means of contact with fellow humans are electronic devices.  Human factors have faded away in the sands of time.  They have lost track of our fellow human beings. We have lost that care and love the early societies shared.  They believe in numbers and statistics more than we believe in goodness of human heart. They have suppressed their feelings of empathy. Suspicion has been embedded into their subconscious.  They have let the media machine fill their souls with mechanical ideologies and numbness into feelings of empathy. 

The media usually promotes sensational news by showing the most gruesome of the contents, and the awareness to deceive the vulnerable. Because of the complexity of professionals’ role and public demanding, clients and / or the public at large must rely on their judgment and expertise.  Professional expertise must be applied with honesty, integrity, professional scepticism, self-regulated, and avoidance of misinterpretation.

The talk will not attempt to arrive at a definitive account of what the youth generation is today, but instead will share the situations on the era we are living through and the challenges we are facing.  Professionals have to be honest about how care will be paid for and what might alleviate the potential strains.  Professionals need to temper abstract political theories and technical arguments with a “nuts and bolts” understanding of how issues play out in the changing world.
