“Can traditional enterprises stay competitive in the Age of AI?” & “Can we stay ahead of the curve in the Age of AI?”. These are the two key questions that today’s business leaders, executives & professionals in traditional & even technology companies are asking themselves.
My #CUHK #BusinessSchool #APIB teammates & I have put together a 2 days executive education program “The Power Duo of AI and Big Data”. It aims to answer the 2 key questions above. Find out more here.
The format of the program is a combination of lectures, case studies, group discussion, demo and hands-on, fireside chats with top business executives and AI leaders from corporates, #startups & #SMEs.
“Keep #Learning” or “#Reskilling” is one of the smartest ways to spend our time under the #Covid19. Good news is that this program is supported by the HK government #RTTP scheme. Participants may apply for the funding support & will pay only 1/3 of the fee.
The schedule is set on Aug 19 and 20, 2020. Hopefully it can be delivered in our campus classroom but it is also ready for a hybrid mode of campus and online Zoom. See you there.

Many corporations have noticed the importance of Data, Big Data AI & aggressively kick-started its Digital Transformation journey. However, successful Digital Transformation involves far more than IT or DT (Data Technology) tasks, it calls for company-wide full participation of all departments. In any change management process, talent is always the key.
As such, top management including CEO, CTO, CIO, CDO, COO, CFO, CMO, HRBP, etc. will need to co-design digital transformation strategy, set up of organization structure, develop Data Literacy culture within the company, build up a strong data-literated team from recruitment, training & reskilling current staff, etc.
It is my pleasure to deliver an information session on Apr 17 for AmCham Shanghai to help their members in China to get the latest information on the critical keys & considerations for corporations conducting Digital Transformation. Thanks for the arrangement from Kornerstone & OpenCertHub in Shanghai.
