The 2nd episode of our #ToaSirDataTalk#ToaSir講數 interview series is now ready to watch. Our guest speaker this time was Mr. Daniel Kwong, the former Chief Information and Innovation Officer of #CITIC#Telecom.

Daniel shared practical tips and examples to get the most out of data for his company. We also discussed how to acquire, train and engage data scientists. In addition, Daniel shared how to nurture a data culture in his company to get non-IT colleagues across business and operation units to make use of data to seize revenue opportunities and enhance operation efficiency.

Really learned a lot from Daniel. Appreciate his sharing and thank you. That is the key objective of our programme “Toa Sir Data Talk” i.e. invite experienced business and data leaders to share their industry best practices and data strategy on making use of data in their businesses and operations.

#Data is no doubt the most important asset of leading enterprises in the #DigitalEconomy. The best way to learn about the use of data in businesses is to speak with the leaders and data experts in major industries. It was my honour to conduct a series of interviews with the renowned leaders in our “Toa Sir Data Talk” or “Toa Sir講數” programme organized by #OpenCertHub and supported by #HKPCAcademy. Appreciate all the efforts from both teams especially Andy Kwok Karen F. and Marius Chow. The main objective of the programme is to share the best practices of the use of data and strengthen the data literacy of the business leaders, executives and professionals. I am happy to launch our first episode at the beginning of the Year of the Tiger. It is available to watch now in the programme website https://toasirdatatalk.com. The rest of the series will be released in Feb and Mar. You are welcome to watch them and let’s learn together. More elite speakers will be on our programme. Stay tuned. If you have some data experience to share, please let me know and I am more than happy to invite you to our “Toa Sir Data Talk” programme. 1. Anna Lin #SupplyChain #Retail Chief Executive, GS1 Hong Kong https://lnkd.in/gsSYnZFk 2. Daniel Kwong #Telecom Former Chief Information and Innovation Officer, CITIC Telecom CPC 3. Susanna Chiu #NewRetail #eCommerce Executive Director, Bonjour Holdings https://lnkd.in/gHC9HwcD 4. Michael Yung #CustomerLoyalty #Platform #TravelTech Former Head of Digital Product and Technology, Asia Miles https://lnkd.in/ggvNv8BN 5.

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.

What is the secret sauce of Coca-Cola in the old economy? How about the secret sauce of the leading enterprises in today’s new economy? The answer is customer centricity. How did these enterprises make it? The answer is #Data. These companies are capable of turning data into their customer voice. That differentiates the leaders from the laggards in the digital economy.

Thanks for Hong Kong Association for Customer Service Excellence #HKACE to invite me to share my experience with their members. My main theme was “Turn Data into Our Customer Voice”. I have explained the core relationship of Customer Centricity and Data Literacy using the Left-Right Circle framework. I also introduced how we used our Data Literacy Empowerment Programme #DLEP to empower enterprises to democratize data literacy (data culture, mindset and skills) to the majority of their workforce. Find out more from our OpenCertHub Academy https://lnkd.in/gi6y9mJE

Benson Kwong #Fairwood#大快活, one of the largest fast food chains in Asia, also shared how they made use of data to help their internal customers (colleagues) to solve pain points in the front line. For instance, they used data to find the most effective way to deliver training to different levels of employees. Excellent examples of making use of data for customer excellence.

Appreciate Annie LeungCharles Ho from #HKACE#MTR effort to organize this forum. I hope I have given some insights to them and their members how to leverage on data in their customer services businesses and operations.

It was the Friday night before the Christmas. People will usually go out shopping, gathering and having fun. Really appreciate the participants who came tonight to my talk to learn about digital transformation. I saw not only some new faces but also my #EMBA students who came with their other halves to learn together. Thanks Anita Chan, Cecilia, .. Impressive and encouraging.

Also thank those on Zoom like my DBA learning partner Fareeda Cassumbhoy. Hope all of you got some inspiration from my talk and at the same time enjoying your favorite wine at home in Friday night.

Today’s talk was a CUHK EMBA Sample class organized by our EMBA directors Pong Yuen, Howard LamChun So and their teammates. Thanks for their effort and the great learning attitude of our participants. Over 250 registrations for this session. Wow… we are back!

I asked every participant to drop down 3 words as tonight’s key takeaways. Words like #Data#Innovation#Customer#Urgency#Relevancy#Ecosystem#Platform, and more came out. I was impressed by how much they were inspired in only a little bit over 60 mins. Really appreciate their effort.

How about you? What are your three magic words on digital transformation?

Thank you to all and have a great weekend. Let’s get ready to celebrate Christmas Eve next week.

Congrats to all winners of the Best HR Awards 2021 organized by #CTGoodJobs. Lots of innovation from the HR professionals this year.

Thank you for CTGoodJobs, the judges like Jeff Tam Virginia Choi JP and the crew behind the scene. Appreciate Vivienne Wong #HKET and her CTGoodJobs teammates Reo Lam Christine C. Cyrus Chow and more to organize such an inspiring and encouraging Awards for all of us. Well done.

I was grateful to be invited as a keynote speaker of the ceremony. According to a recent #WEF report, in the digitally transformed world, more than 1 billion people need to be upskilled by 2030. HR plays a pivotal role to make it happen. I shared my experience on empowering and upskilling talents on data literacy as it is one of the top Future Skills that every one of us needs to be good at. If you have missed my sharing session or you were there but want to review my key points, please feel free to download my deck here.

Glad to have a fruitful discussion with elite #FinTech leaders on the theme of #FinancialInclusion on the 1st day of the 2021 Hong Kong FinTech Week #HKFTW #HKFinTechWeek. We had Tat Lee #WeLabBankVenetia Lee #AlipayDavid Rosa #Neat and myself in our panel moderated by Karen Man #BakerMckenzie.

My 3 key takeaways from our panel are:

1. Large FSIs and FinTechs need to be customer centric on empowering the #SMEs and under privileges to make use of finance to change their lives. It is not just a business model to make money but also a very meaningful PURPOSE. That aligns all key stakeholders to collaborate.

2. #Data is key for the success of financial inclusion. #FSI is a regulated industry. Banks need to use #DataScience to seize opportunities and manage the risk of financial inclusion while SMEs can make use of data to identify areas to improve their credit scores.

3. The success of Financial Inclusion needs #DataLiteracy democratization. Data is our customer voice in particular we need to deal with massive number of customers in the financial inclusion market. Every one in FSI needs to be reskilled or upskilled to be a #CitizenDataScientist. Major financial services incumbents are proactively working towards this direction.

See you on the Day 2 (Thu, Nov 4) in the following panel. I will talk to the senior executives of #HSBC on the theme – Building Billion Dollar Ecosystems.

The #CPA Conference 2021: Transcending Together. Grateful to see that #HKiCPA Hong Kong Institute of Certified Public Accountants has successfully organized their #f2f annual conference today.

It was not easy for sure as we were still having lots of challenges under the Covid-19. Thanks for the leadership from Raymond Chung Ching Cheng, President of the HKiCPA, and his teammates like Rosalind Lee, Horace Ma, Jonathan Ng to organize this event and invited me to be one of the panel speakers. Over 200 members joined this inspiring event. Congratulations.

The conference invited great speakers to share their experience. We really learned a lot from Kenny Sham from #LEGO as well as many others like Edwin Morris from #JebsenTeddy Liu. I was impressed how they innovated in the pandemic period. Kenny said that the traffic was dropped from 3,000+ visitors per shop daily down to 3. If you were LEGO, what were you going to do apart from scaling down, cutting cost, etc. They didn’t.

LEGO launched a number of innovative programs like Lego Brick at Home, Cross Girl Virtual Pop-up Store (AR), etc. They performed great in terms of not only sales but also customer engagement, branding, sustainability and staff loyalty. In essence, truly understanding the pains of different customer segments in the pandemic and being able to solve these problems using #innovation and #technology, and the established trust among colleagues made the difference.

I was in another panel on digital transformation. We had experts from the #Accounting and #Finance industry and certainly #DigitalTransformation, including Andrew Lee #EYDickman Chiu from #Bitmex, Michael Chan #Vis and Jeffrey Chan #GrantThornton. We agreed that change management, culture, purpose, collaboration and most importantly people are the key for success in digital transformation.

My final recommendation for the audiences was, rather than worrying about #AI may replace some of their jobs, to proactively #upskill themselves, especially on their #DataLiteracy and empower their companies to transform. In the context of this change, both the company and the finance people will have a chance to learn from the journey especially unleashing the power of #data and monetizing data. That experience will benefit not only the company but also the employees for better career options in the #DigitalEconomy.

Great to meet old and new friends there too Venus Tang (鄧麗華) Francis Fong Mandict Wong Johnson Kong and many others.
