Today is a bright day with a sunny and clear sky. What a great day to kick off our collaborative partnership with The Hong Kong Institute of Bankers! OpenCertHub Academy (#OCHA) and The Hong Kong Institute of Bankers (#HKIB) are joining hands to upskill the data literacy of the executives and practitioners in the #Banking industry.

#Data is one of the most important assets for leading enterprises in today’s #DigitalEconomy. For #FinancialServices, data is the “new gold” or one of the most important assets these days. To unleash the power of data in the banking industry, everyone needs to speak data and treat it as their second business language.

Just having a core team of data scientists is not good enough to fully unleash the business values of data for banks. We are seeing that a few major international and local #banks are empowering the majority of their workforce on data literacy. They aim to embed a data mindset and skills with every possible colleague so that they can make use of data in their daily jobs. They also empower colleagues to communicate effectively and regularly with their data and IT teammates to come up with better and better analytics and data sources.

The prime objective of the “Data Literacy Empowerment Programme”, the flagship programme of OpenCertHub Academy (OCHA), is to democratize data literacy to everyone in a company so that they can seize the opportunities from data monetization and solve business problems with data analytics on daily basis.

The Hong Kong Institute of Bankers (HKIB) is one of the major institutes to provide training and certification services to the banking community in Hong Kong. Together, OCHA and HKIB aim to contribute to the growth of data talents in the banking community and enhance the competitiveness of the banking industry in Hong Kong through the pervasive use of data. Appreciate the leadership and trust from HKIB’s Carrie Leung and Philip Kam, and the great support from their teammates, and certainly my OCHA’s teammates Andy Kwok, Dr. Victor NgPatrick TsoiCandi Yeung and more. We look forward to collaborating with HKIB to co-creating values for the growth of #FinTech in Hong Kong.

Thanks Thomson Lai AECOM’s Asia Digital Leader for inviting me as a keynote speaker to get the passionate participants even more inspired for the hackathon. I chose the topic – “#Entrepreneurs: From Good to Great”. The participants are all good entrepreneurs already but what could differentiate them from good to great entrepreneurs. Solving the right problems right is the key. Appreciate #AECOMHK organizing such an impactful hackathon for Hong Kong and the great support from Madison Wai of Hill+Knowlton Strategies.

In the last 2 weeks, I am really grateful to contribute in different industries and professions, from #Engineering#Accounting#HR#ProjectManagement#Design, to #Banking#Insurance#SupplyChain and #Education, on how #innovation and #technologies or I&T made a difference. Our momentum on I&T in Hong Kong is unprecedented. Let’s transform #FromGoodToGreat. Keep it going!

“Banking is necessary, but banks are not” is no less influential than “Information at your fingertips” from the game changer BillGates. In 2020, Hong Kong Financial Services incumbents will be facing even more disruption from the tech giants like Alibaba & 700+ FinTech startups in HK. The 8 VirtualBanks will start launching their innovative offerings in 2020. What the incumbents & the FinTechs should do?

In the NEXX Forum in Cyberport, I had a discussion w/ Will Ross CFA from Citi & Ray Chou on the Disruption for Banking in 2020. The key takeaway is that competitions actually drive both incumbents and FinTechs to do more for the best of their customers. It implies collaboration in ecosystem. Anna Yip from Smartone shared how5G adds value to FinTech & how industry crossover & hackathons help their company to innovate for customers. Jeffrey Ng, CFA, MBA from PingAn OneConnect talked about how their technologies are helping incumbents to overcome the digital challenges & meet customer expectations. Garry Sien from Alibaba shared their experience in GBA cross-border FinTech initiatives. Barry Chan from IBM Peter Koo FCPA,CA,AICPA,CPA (Aust),CIA,CFE,CISA,CISM,CGEIT from Deloitte Emil Chan ZABank DBS shared great insight.
