Lord Mayor’s Business Awards

| Colin Lee
Just had the incredible honour of meeting Li Cunxin, the inspirational Mao’s Last Dancer, at the Lord Mayor Lord Mayor Adrian Schrinner Business Awards Winner’s and Alumni Lunch! 🕺
I have read and watched Mao’s Last dancer back in 2009 and I am so glad and grateful to have finally met and hear his true story of inspiration. Congratulations Cunxin Li on being the winner of The Lord Mayors award!
Thank you, Li Cunxin, for your inspiring presence! 🤝🌈 Thank you for sharing your story and all the best with your next chapter in life after retiring as the artistic director of the Queensland Ballet in Brisbane, Australia.
“I am so pleased that I have contributed a little bit in the culture and arts space, to bring a sparkle of happiness and bring people together through art forms, and simply bring the best talents to this city. Bring on the aspirations, can do attitude, the down to earth nature of people, to collaborate and work together and be happy for your mates success. Let not the tall poppy syndrome stop you from achieving greatness. Lets work together to achieve great things. Lets make a difference. Contribute in what we can in a positive way” Li Cunxin.
If you have not read or watch Mao’s Last Dancer. I highly recommend it if you want to be inspired. In “Mao’s Last Dancer”, Li recounts his determination, perseverance, vision, courage and hard work, and in particular, the sacred family values and integrity that he learned in poverty-stricken China, which has driven him to become one of the best dancers in the world.
Li’s Story: From bitter poverty to the stardom of the West – this is the extraordinary true story of one boy’s great courage and determination.
Thank you Katie Richards – Entrepreneur for having me be part of your journey and congratulations on your celebration as an alumni for your win back in 2019! I am grateful for you.
