Just finished conducting a 4 days intensive and fruitful EMBA course on Innovation and Intrapreneurship Management for CUHK. On one hand, I am exhausted. On the other hand, I am very grateful as 83 top executives from the mainland China participated my class on Zoom even under the pandemic situation. Engaging 83 executive students for 4 full days on Zoom (plus conducted in Putonghua) was not easy as you could imagine but we did have a joyful and valuable learning experience together.

Not only the number of students has broken my record of teaching EMBA class, the quality of the students were very impressive. They came from different industries like property, professional services, design, manufacturing, engineering, technology and even agriculture. At the beginning, I had some doubt on how much they wanted to learn innovation and how much effort they would put on a course as they are all busy and uprising bosses and top executives. To my surprise, they were serious and really put lots of effort to learn. Really appreciate their passion and perservance to learn.

Apart from going through core concepts and models, we learned corporate innovations and intrapreneurship by exploring 10 influential and inspiring internationl and Chinese cases. We discussed, debated and learned through this process. It was also my honour to have three elite leaders as my guest speakers to share how they innovate as a startup (Sum Wong from #EventX), a tech giant (Jacqueline Chong from #Amazon#AWS) and a traditional enterprise (Damien Wu#ChinaChem). We all learned a lot from them. Really appreciate it.

Now, I need to relax a bit and get a good sleep. Enjoy the Easter Holiday!

We had a nice evening in #Macau, well virtually. Macau is a beautiful place as you can see in the photo below. I had a webinar designed especially for audiences from Macau last night together with my CUHK EMBA teammates. Hope I can see f2f all my friends, students, and partners in Macau very soon.

The topic was Digital Transformation for Traditional Enterprises. I invited Winson C. W., our CUHK EMBA alumnus, and a Macau native, to share his experience with the digital transformation in Macau. I am very proud of what Winson and many other CUHK alumni from Macau have achieved. They are now contributing to the growth of Macau particularly by seizing the opportunities and managing the challenges arising from the GBA. Winson has shared a few local innovation cases led by our alumni, such as Judy Wong (Robi 3), Antonio (集運幫), and Acen 江總(澳覓). It was impressive. Thank you, Winson.

Winson also shared his CUHK EMBA journey, such as, learning from top industry leaders and faculties, picking up new knowledge, theories and models, making new connections, contributing to society, classmates becoming lifetime friends, enriching his global vision, and more. While most of Macau’s young generation has gone through an undergraduate programme, not too many of them have taken further to upskill themselves with an internationally recognized EMBA programme like CUHK. Apart from strategy, marketing, finance, and human capital, we also have a unique focus and strong faculty on #DigitalTransformation#CorporateInnovation#ChineseWisdom, and #Entrepreneurship – the most needed knowledge and skills in the VUCA*Digital Era.

To better contribute to Macau’s future growth in GBA, EMBA is a good option for the next generation of leaders in Macau to pursue. Here is a link for more.

See you all soon in Macau and have a great Easter Holiday with your family. Take care!

Glad to have Mr. Clement Lam, CEO of Sun Life Hong Kong, be my guest on the RTHK radio programme – New Management Thinking 管理新思維. Really appreciate Clement’s sharing and time, and my RTHK partner Jenny Lee. We talked about how insurance companies innovate. While we are seeing some progress in this space, there are still quite a few internal and external challenges to making changes and innovations to this legacy industry. What have we discussed? 1. Sun Life has been in Hong Kong for more than a hundred years (130 years to be exact). Clement shared his experience of how to change the culture of a well-established company with many professionals and legacy culture to encourage and embrace innovation. 2. Leveraging and investing in startups (for example, Sun Life invested in Bowtie) and collaborating with the ecosystem are other topics that we discussed. 3. We also talked about opportunities and challenges for insurance companies in Hong Kong and the GBA. 4. We exchanged ideas on acquiring, cultivating and retaining the right talents, especially for young generations. 5. Leveraging slashers in the Gig and Sharing Economy is becoming a trend and more companies are making use of it. And a lot more.. If you would like to learn more from our discussion, please tune in RTHK1 this coming Sun (Apr 17) from 2 pm to 4 pm. https://lnkd.in/f-X8RaN Update: You can listen to it here now https://lnkd.in/gYddhHHW #insurance #insurtech #healthtech #fintech #startup #ecosystem #Bowtie #RTHK #香港電台 #管理新思維 #NewManagementThinking 永明金融 #SunLife #SunLifeHK #GigEconomy #SharingEconomy #GBA #GreaterBayArea CUHK Business SchoolCUHK EMBA#CUHK #CUHKEMBA #EMBA Andrew Chan Pong Yuen, Howard Lam Chun So

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.

Just completed teaching a highly engaging #CUHK #EMBA course on corporate innovation in the last few weekends. The main theme was #CorporateInnovation#Intrapreneurship#DigitalTransformation and #EmergingTechnology. My students are all elite leaders and executives from Hong Kong, Macau, Mainland China and overseas across various industries.

Really felt great as our fellow students really contributed to our collective learning. Also felt exhausted as all of us gave in a lot of effort to learn. Really appreciate the growth mindset and learning attitude of our students.

We had gone through a few key best practices and discussed a few real good case studies. This was a special milestone for me as well because I used my own freshly published case study (Nov 9, 2021) on #HSBC #OpenInnovation as one of the key cases to teach this class. Thanks for Daniel Chan Jaff Lau Ada L. Danielle T. and many others in HSBC and Ivey’s professor Hubert Pun to make this case possible. The case is now globally accessible by all major business schools through the world’s top case publisher #IveyPublishing. Here is the link if you would like to learn from it.

I also invited great innovative leaders from corporate and startup worlds to share their experience with my students. Really thank Austin R. Bryan, from #CLP , Kenny Sham from #LEGO and Harris SUN from #RaSpect. After all these, my students had a final project presentation to share their findings and recommendations to the company that they have chosen.

Great insights from my students. I am happy to see that my students came up with great insights and recommendations. I am also grateful that my experience sharings have empowered my students to manage innovation more effectively for their companies and ventures.

Thanks to my #CUHKEMBA teammates Pong Yuen, Howard Lam Chun So and supporting crew behind the scene for their support.
