Grateful that Hang Seng Bank, one of the major banks in Hong Kong, is determined to become a data-driven leader in the financial services. Appreciate the vision and leadership from the bank’s senior management to make this happen. It really sets a great example for Hong Kong companies to treat data as their strategic asset and how data play a game changer role in the Digital Economy.

Apart from data and technology parts, Data Literacy is equally critical for the success of a data-driven enterprise. Apart from English and Chinese, do you speak #Data? According to Gartner, Data is the second business language in the Digital Economy. Every employee, not just data team and IT team, needs to speak data to communicate with, argue with and persuade customers, colleagues, bosses, investors, partners, literally everyone around you. This is one of the top Future Skills ranked by almost all leading research firms.

It is my pleasure and honour having this opportunity to lead and deliver our Data Literacy Empowerment Programme #DLEP to the bank. DLEP aims to democratise data literacy to the majority of the workforce through a series of data literacy executive roundtables, experiential workshops, group projects, mentoring sessions, hackathons and more for the bank. It emphasizes on data mindset and culture, data storytelling, machine learning applications and hands-on experience. Thanks to the trust and support from Hang Seng Bank’s senior management especially the leadership from Patrick Khong, CDO of HASE, my CUHK’s teammates and OpenCertHub Academy’s data experts.

Higher customer expectations on digital experience and keen competition from data savvy banks and FinTech startups are some of key drivers for us to create this DLEP programme. In fact, it happened in not just financial services but also most of the major traditional industries.

If you would like to know more about our DLEP to ride on the journey of becoming a data-driven enterprise, I am happy to share my thoughts with you.

Thanks to Joe Wan, CEO of #Tricor, for his experience sharing on talents cultivation in the digital era. Also, appreciate  for delivering the workshop on Leadership and Workforce Transformation in the Digital Era Programme. It was a part of our Digital Leadership Series for Executives initiated and designed by me and a number of industry experts and professors for #CUHK.

Here are a few key takeaways from Joe’s sharing.

1. How important is “#WHY” and “#PURPOSE“.
We have to help our colleagues know why he or she is here and how important and relevant their contribution is to the company and themselves. If that alignment works well, people will not just stay but also do their best in their jobs.

2. Listen to all levels of employees
Willing to listen to different levels of staff and answer all kinds of questions directly from staff from levels down will earn trust and pick up ideas that senior management can never think of.

3. Transform every employee to be a #startup
Encouraging #intrapreneurship and innovation from the bottom also encourage talents to join you and stay and grow with the company. Joe has supported their teammates to open a cafe which is now in their building and other places.

4. Take exit interview seriously
Not only finding out more about why a colleague leaves, but also offering staff, who are leaving, a final chance to stay. Joe said in the Exit Interview, “If you stay, I can waive the advanced notice for your next resignation if any.” That sincerity is really building another level of trust even the staff finally left. Alumni groups can be very powerful these days as ecosystem collaboration is the key to success in the digital era.

5. Respect each other
Joe asked and enforced every manager to treat their staff with respect. For instance, it is fine for a manager to shout at their staff but never one stands up and the other sits down. A simple gesture means a lot.

All these tips applied well in particular to the young generation. I learned a lot from Joe and Teddy. To thank Joe, I also shared a copy of my book #數碼力大提升 to him.

Grateful to spend my weekend with elite tech entrepreneurs and business leaders to learn about emerging technologies and business innovation. It is one of my classes in #CUHK Mini MBA Innovative Leadership program. It aims to #upskilling busy executives and #entrepreneurs on the latest #leadership mindset and skills in the #DigitalEconomy through a series of short modules in a few months.
https://lnkd.in/g6Pe4bUM

I particularly like the mix of my class participants. We had quite a few startups’ founders and leaders like #Dayta, tech giants like #AWS, financial services like #HangSengBank, public sector like #HKHousingSociety and major ecosystem enabler like #HKSTP. My class in fact is a mini tech and innovation #ecosystem. One of the most valuable parts of this class was the team discussion and case studies where we could focus on the key aspects that our participants were most concerned and cared about in seizing the opportunities and managing the potential risks in the emerging digital economy.

Thanks for the active participation of all the students. Really enjoyed it and learnt from you all as well.

How should we leverage #DigitalTransformation to capture the opportunities in the 80+ million people #GBA market? Glad to have a chance to discuss this theme with influential leaders in Hong Kong. It included
1. Professor Andrew Chan, President of the #GBABusinessSchool
2. Edmond Lai, Chief Digital Officer of #HKPC
3. Andrew Ling, Director of Value Advisory, #SAPHK

Thanks for #SAP and #HKET to organize such a great forum. Appreciate the effort from Sandy YuHelen Lam and many other SAP and HKET colleagues.

I also shared my experience as one of the judges for the 2021 Digital Transformation Awards #DinggeAwards #鼎革獎 where I witnessesed and learnt from many innovative and impactful digital transformation real-life cases implemented by enterprises from mainland China, Hong Kong and Taiwan. The Awards is an annual competition organized by #HarvardBusinessReview#HBR#TsinghuaUniversity and #SAP. Hong Kong started participating this competition first time in 2021.

#GBA (80+ million people in 11 cities of South China) and #ASEAN (650+ million people in 10 countries of SE Asia) are the two biggest and rapidly growing markets nearby Hong Kong. Enterprises, #SMEs and #Startups in Hong Kong are finding ways to seize these unprecedented opportunities for them.

Today, I was so grateful to have experts on GBA and ASEAN to share their experience in 2 consecutive forums. I moderated one forum on GBA in #SunLife in the morning and moderated another forum on ASEAN in #HKPC in the afternoon.

Appreciate King Leung #InvestHKPeter Mok #HKSTPJennifer Tan #AntGroupKeith Ip #SFExpressDick Fong and Thomson Ho #10Life to share their experience on the ecosystem collaboration in GBA.

Thanks Joseph Chan #AsiaPayStanley Sy CCRA #Sanomicswun chi lam #SpaceshipSunny Chau #HKTDCGary Lam #AsiaCEOCommunity and Sunny Chow from Leading Star Vietnam to share about their market entry strategy to ASEAN, consumer behaviors, partnership models and talents management for ASEAN markets.

Heartfelt thank to Clement LamCynthia Sit, and Alice Chuck #SunLifeKaren F. Marius Chow #HKPC and my #CUHK teammates to make these 2 forums a successful learning opportunity for everyone.

I believe Hong Kong can reach another peak in the next 5 to 10 years by leveraging on #innovation#entrepreneurship #intrapreneurship and #technology to capture the arising opportunities in GBA and ASEAN. Creating synergy through the collaboration of two regions is critical for our success. That is what I have been working on as well. Let’s add oil 大家加油!

It was the first time for me to teach under the typhoon signal #3 in my life. Really appreciate all of our executive students’ heart to learn and join our class on <Leadership and Workforce Transformation in the Digital Era> yesterday. It is a part of the #CUHK #APIB <Digital Leadership Series for Executives> programme that I introduced and designed. https://lnkd.in/gU8AzDJ

We had leaders and executives from various industries such as #FinancialServices#Retail#Energy#Pharmaceutical#Technologies, etc. to join the class yesterday. It indicated that leaders from these industries are keen on learning more about the soft side of digital transformation.

Appreciate Teddy Liu to co-teach this class with me. In fact, Teddy is the master mind of this course. He is an expert on the people side of digital transformation. Teddy shared his experience and wisdom on this subject matter. In my part, I explored a few digital transformation real-life cases with our students.

It was our honour to have Stephen Leung, Country Manager of #Pfizer Hong Kong and Indonesia, to share his wisdom on leadership, people and change management. It was very valuable and insightful. I was also impressed by his way to share his thoughts. He made good use of interesting stories and fantastic analogies.

Thank you, Stephen. I will remember to drink more water H2O. Healthy, Happy and Optimistic. Thank you, Teddy, to empower me and our students to master the change management and talents strategy in the digital era. Appreciate the great effort behind the scene from my CUHK APIB teammates.

One more day to go for this course. We will have another enlightening leader Joe Wan, CEO of #Tricor, to share his wisdom. Stay tuned.

The pilot study aimed to collect feedback from the leaders on the design of our survey which is going to send to hundreds of companies to study their innovation. The preliminary design of the survey was a result from our literature review and direct consultation sessions and focus groups with close to 50 large to small companies. Really thank to the inputs from these participated leaders and executives.

Apart from the discussion with the guests yesterday on the survey design, we also invited Ir. Andrew Young #SinoGroup to share his corporate innovation experience.

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.
https://lnkd.in/e-hR5nsX

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
https://lnkd.in/gN-TJvJ

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.
