Harry Dao is an economics lecturer and has been teaching at Trinity since 2017. Here he shares some of his favourite things.

Apart from teaching, I also own a company providing consultancy services to overseas businesses (mainly in Vietnam and the US).

To make students see you more as a friend and mentor, rather than a teacher.
My students’ stories about their dreams and ambitions.
I can sing and cook well!
