#DigitalTransformation is a must for almost every large or small company these days. Most of the failure cases of digital transformation is on the soft side of the journey. The soft side includes #leadership, #culture, #talent and most importantly #ChangeManagement.
I am so grateful to partner with one of the most experienced enterprise transformation leaders in #DigitalEra in Hong Kong, Teddy Liu, to co-create, co-design and co-deliver a course on the soft side of the Digital Transformation. We called the course “Leadership & Workforce Transformation in the Digital Era”. Really appreciate Teddy’s contribution. This course is a part of #CUHK #APIB #DigitalLeadershipSeries designed by a number of #digital experts and myself.
We also invited two top leaders, Stephen Leung #Pfizer and Joe Wan #Tricor in Hong Kong to share their experience in their digital leadership. Special thanks to Stephen and Joe, and look forward to learning from them.
We highly recommend corporate leaders, #HR practitioners, digital transformation professionals, innovation leaders and change agents to join the course. The upcoming class will be on Oct 12 and 13. Be HURRY to enroll if you are interested. More information and enrollment link can be found here.
See you there!
Really my honour to receive a copy of Professor Andrew Chan latest book from him in person on his well-known “Left-Right Circle” or #LRC #左右圈。Find out more about Professor Chan’s book here.
I was in fact inspired by Professor Chan to write my book #數碼力大提升。 I also talked about the LRC in the context of #DigitalTransformation in my book. What a journey!
Appreciate all your support to my book. The 1st print of my book was sold out. The 2nd print is being reprinted by the publisher #天窗出版社。
Thanks Professor Chan for being my inspirational mentor in my journey as well as many #CUHK #CUHKEMBA and #CUHKMBA Alumni and students. I visited his #GBABusinessSchool in July and exchanged ideas on cultivating talents for the #GBA development. I also delivered a copy of my book to him.
The school is another meaningful and impactful chapter for Professor Chan. Wish Professor all the best in his new journey.
I was impressed by #ICBC Asia in the way how their senior management took #AI, #BigData and #FinTech seriously. Usually, most of the senior leaders will only stay for 30 minutes of a training class and will excuse themselves from it. This time was very different.
All their top and senior management, including Chairman and Executive Director, actively participated in my AI and Big Data class. Guess what? They stayed till the very end of my class and actively participated in the whole day.
Really appreciate their leadership to demonstrate and lead by example. Their top management believe that continuous learning is the way to stay relevant and competitive in their financial services industry. By doing it themselves, it brings culture change to their colleagues.
My class today was on the Power Duo of AI and Big Data. It is a part of the Digital Leadership Series that I designed and led for the Asia Pacific Institute of Business #APIB of the #CUHK Business School.
I started my class today with a clear message to the ICBC team that they need to speak one more language on the top of Chinese and English in the digital economy. That is #Data. In order to be a #AIFirst and #DataDriven bank, everyone in the company has to have basic to advanced #DataLiteracy. Reskilling them on data is not an option but a necessity.
We then explained the AI and #MachineLearning technologies, business models and data monetization concepts to them. We also explored new AI applications in #FinancialServices and #DataGovernance with them. “Seeing Is Believing It”. I invited Patrick Tsoi, a veteran in #DataScience to use real data to demonstrate the power of Big Data in financial services. Thank you Patrick, ICBC team and CUHK team.
It is just a good start for the #DigitalTransformation for ICBC Asia. It is a journey and we are happy to contribute along with the team.
Just completed a meaningful and joyful project with a group of my #CUHK #MBA students to do research and make recommendations to one of the leading InsurTech #startups from Hong Kong, #Bowtie. Really proud of my students Kinsley Chan, JACKIE XU and Shaarang Begani on their effort and insights.
Appreciate Bowtie’s team Gabriel Kung and his teammates to collaborate with and support my students on this amazing project. Thanks the leadership from Fred Ngan and Michael Kwan Yu Chan, and their effort to nurture our next generation and give back to our society.
Learning cannot be just done within classroom. Practise in the field, validate with the practitioners and apply what we learned from the class are critical to turn information to knowledge and wisdom. That is what the Business #Practicum Program of #CUHKMBA aims for.
I am so grateful to be a mentor for this impactful program. Thanks Seen Meng Chew, Serina Chow, Grace Liang, Frandy Chu, Rebecca Wong, MBA and many others from CUHK to lead, organize and execute the program. Keep it going.
Thanks Armstrong Lee Alexandra Lo, EMBA CUHK MBA Alumni Association to gather the digital leaders in town to discuss the hot topic “Digital Transformation at the Era of Uncertainty”.
Grateful to Alexandra to invite me to moderate this panel. Really look forward to learning from the vibrant leaders.

What a rewarding 4 days together with my #CUHK #EMBA students! I took them through a very timely and critical intensive training on #innovation #strategy & #management. Our students are all senior executives from mainland #China including traditional companies and tech giants.
I have invited 4 guest speakers to share their corporate innovation experience with us. Thanks Eric Hui #ZurichInsurance, Charles Lam #Fubon, Akina Ho #GreatEagle and Damien Ko #G2000. Their sharings were insightful & practical. We all learned a lot from them. Thank you.
I used a few inspirational cases as the core for my class, such as, #Disney, #Netflix, #Marriott, #Airbnb, #Adobe, #PingAn, #Haier, #Philips, #Samsung, #Booking.com, #3M, #Amazon, #Alibaba, #Advantech, #Walesgreen, etc.
Though we had to use Zoom for the training, the class participation from our students on our case discussion was no less than a #f2f class. Really impressed by the quality of my students’ questions, analysis, debates & suggestions. Thank you.
My students had a nice dinner in Shenzhen with lots of joy after the 4 days class. They were well deserved it. Hope to join them next time when there is no quarantine needed.
Happy Father’s Day for everyone!

Great exchange of ideas with Andy Ann – one of the best tech #SerialEntrepreneurs from Hong Kong as well as our #CUHK #EMBA #CUHKEMBA distinguished alumnus. He has founded a few successful start-ups before another great one #YAS today – a #InsurTech startup focusing on #MicroInsurance. Impressive!
I met Andy a few years ago when we participated the #HSBC Innovation Summit. We have both witnessed how HSBC Commercial Banking have been transforming in the Digital Economy and glad that we had a chance to contribute to their #innovation journey as well.
Honoured to receive his book #創業不困難 from him directly. Learned a lot of secret sauce on being a successful startup today from Andy. I will share a copy of my book #數碼力大提升 in my next round of discussion with him.
We will explore further on how to empower and support our startup ecosystem, in particular those are trying but not yet on the right track, better and stronger.
Look forward to learning from and collaborating with Andy and many other successful entrepreneurs from Hong Kong, mainland and Asia. Stay tuned.
Leaders in Hong Kong shared experience on how corporates can innovate in this challenging time & seize the opportunities in the #DigitalEconomy. It was a fireside chat moderated by Patrick S Lee & I in the launch of Corporate Innovation Index program organized by #CUHK & #HKGCC.
1. Corporate innovation is about margin, sustainability & opportunities.
2. Engaging new generation is important for corporate innovation. Reverse mentorship is very effective to empower senior management on innovation.
3. The more challenging time we are in, more innovation we need (not an excuse to give up the priority of innovation)
4. Passion is a key for driving innovation
5. CEO cannot delegate innovation. He or she has to drive it & align with the company’s strategy with it. Bottom up is as equally important as top down.
Grateful to have all these leaders in innovation & technology ecosystem to join the forum and appreciate their active participation. Francis Ngai #IBM, Andrew Ling #SAP, Eugene Hsia #HKSTP, Stella Kwan #Cyberport, Eunice Chan #HangSengBank, Raymond Cheng former C-suite #HSBC, Matthew Chan
#JardineRestaurantGroup, Larry Poon #CUHK & more.
We look forward to collaborating with all to deliver our Corporate Innovation Index for Hong Kong.
#Academia, #Corporates, #TechGiants & #Startups are joining hands to establish the first ever #Corporate #Innovation #Index (CII) for Hong Kong.
#CUHK Business School together with #HKGCC supported by #HKSAR #ITC, #Cyberport, #HKSTP, Corporates #HangSengBank, #JETCO, #JardineRestaurantGroup, #TradeLink #Prestique, & Tech Giants #IBM #AWS #SAP, launched the CII project today in HKGCC. https://lnkd.in/eXf44k7
Under Secretary HKSAR ITB David Chung, HKGCC Chairman George Leung, CUHK Business School Dean Professor Lin Zhou, & Professor Wai Man Cheung gave their speeches to support the CII project.
Seasoned corporate leader Patrick S Lee & I led an interactive discussion on corporate innovation with over 40 f2f & many online corporate & tech leaders. The discussion was open & insightful. Here was one that I couldn’t agree more.
Raymond Cheng, the former CIO & COO of HSBC APAC, was here today. He said, “The more difficult time we are in, the more innovation we need.” I believe it said it all for us under the tough time of the Covid-19 & heavy digital disruption across industries & economics.
Appreciate support from Eugene Hsia Stella Kwan Andrew Ling Francis Ngai David Chow Chris So Angus Choi Yvonne Che Eunice Chan Vicky Wong & colleagues from #CUHK & #APIB.
Here we go! Corporate Innovation Index for Hong Kong is coming. Most companies are aware of the criticality of #innovation to the growth & even survival of their businesses. However, Corporate Innovation is easier said than done.
#CUHK Business School & #HKGCC with the support from #HKSAR Government Innovation & Technology Commissioner #ITC will build a #CorporateInnovationIndex to empower enterprises & SMEs in HK to improve their innovation mindset & capabilities.
Apart from the survey, we will have assessment tools, a series of seminars & workshops to help companies to improve their innovation. Appreciate to our ecosystem partners’ support #HangSengBank #JETCO #JardineRestaurantGroup #Cyberport #HKSTP #IBM #AWS #SAP #TradeLink #Prestique & more.
Dr. David Chung #ITB Under Secretary will officiate our kickoff ceremony on April 26. Two veterans in #CorporateInnovation & #Entrepreneurship, Dr. CHARM Toa & Patrick S Lee, will have a fireside chat on Corporate Innovation.
1.Why corporate innovation is so challenging?
2.What are the industry best practices to build & sustain corporate innovation success?
3.What can corporate leaders learn from tech start-ups & vice versa?
