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.

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.

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.
