Year of Award



Mr Nelson Yip Siu-hong devotes much of his energy to improving the lives of people with disabilities. He was one of the founders of the NGO Hong Kong Rehabilitation Power in 1995, making Hong Kong into a barrier-free international city, and he subsequently founded the Unleash Foundation in 2012 to help ethnic minorities realise their full potential.

Mr Yip is a business strategy consultant to start-ups, public organisations and firms transitioning to efficient and sustainable business models. He founded the China Hong Kong Culture Exchange Association, encouraging hundreds of cultural ambassadors to embrace diversity, and discover and nurture collaboration in the Greater Bay Area, promoting shared values across cultures.

Mr Yip’s enthusiasm for horse-riding made him the torchbearer and first qualified representative of Hong Kong, China, in the Paralympic equestrian events at the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games. He was awarded the Medal of Honour by the HKSAR Government for his remarkable achievements.
