On 12th December 2012, the Chamber invited Victor Garza, a passionate Feng Shui practitioner to share his knowledge on the basics of Feng Shui theory as well as practical advice on personal and office Feng Shui with Chamber members.

Victor started the presentation by introducing the concept of impact of locations. In recent years, Feng Shui has been popular in the West. More and more business people are now seeking to improve their business by applying this ancient Oriental architecture and interior design rules to their offices. However, the birth place of each person play an important part, therefore, should be taken into consideration when measuring Feng Shui.

Ancient China developed the theory of Five Forces, including metal, wood, water, fire and earth. Each represents different characteristics of energy, or Qi. Depending on the year born, each person is lack of one of the five forces, therefore, the person needs to find ways to make up the lacking, for example, wearing certain colour, having the desk facing certain direction, etc.

When talked about office Feng Shui, Victor introduced a few methods to identify the good and bad locations within a chosen area, including Flying Star School, Black Sect Tantric Buddhist School and 8 Aspirations.
