Joined the GS1 Hong Kong Summit 2022 today in my capacity as the President of Internet of Things #IoT Industry Advisory Council https://lnkd.in/gZ3M-NrZ. Thanks for Anna Lin‘s invitation.

Really like the main theme “Enabling Growth through #IDD“. Guess what IDD means? We may recall the old memory of IDD which means the International Direct Dialing. IDD today means #Innovation#Disruption and #DigitalTransformation. I learned a lot more about ESG, Digital Transformation, New Retail, Data Analytics, eCommerce, Trade Finance, and MetaVerse from many speakers and panelists like Rico Lau#LawsgroupLouis Mah#MaximsSamuel lau#KerryLogisticsAnson Bailey (eMBA)#KPMGNelson Chow#HKMASandy Tan#DBS, and many others today.

More importantly, met many good friends f2f whom we haven’t seen each other physically for the last 3 years. Really felt great and warm to see many bright entrepreneurs and leaders such as Dr. Michael Chan #CafeDeCoralLucia Cheung#HKIMDanny Shum#Ztore#TVBKeith Wu#FulumCrystal Pang#PickupsVincent SoHenry Yeung#RTIA.

I am also very happy to see my elite #CUHK#EMBA students like Vincent WongEdmund ChanMae Chen there. Really grateful that my students have started engaging more with the #innovation and #technology#ecosystem as I often encourage them to do more. Well done.

Thank you so much to May Chung, FACKMAnna LinMignone ChengDr. Stephen LamCorinna Fung and many others from GS1 Hong Kong team #GS1HK to organize such a fruitful summit.

Don’t forget to download the excellent report “Retail Recharged: Engaging consumers with technology, purpose and trust – 2022 Survey” from GS1HK and KPMG. Thanks the perfect Duo Anna Lin and Anson Bailey (eMBA) to present its key findings on stage. Brilliant and insightful performance.

Today is the Moment of the Truth #MOT for my CUHK EMBA students in my Corporate Innovation and Entrepreneurship course. After 8 days of intensive lectures, case discussion, guest speakers’ sharing, they were presenting their group projects.

The project required my students to study a company’s corporate innovation from 6 different perspectives or dilemmas that they learned from my classes and offsite dinners as well 😄😋.
1. Old Economy vs Digital Economy
2. Customer Centricity vs Innovation
3. Strategy Execution vs Searching for Innovation
4. Internal Innovation vs Open Collaboration
5. Entrepreneurship vs Intrapreneurship
6. Experience Driven vs Data Driven

Really grateful to have such a group of elite executives and professionals in my class with strong learning attitude and positive, open and growth mindset. I can feel and see from the quality, innovativeness and teamwork of their final projects. Thank you so much for their great effort.

Appreciate my guest speakers to spend their weekend time to share their experience with us. We have learnt a lot from their talk, discussion and asking sensible questions. Thanks Jacqueline Chong #AWS #AmazonJens-Peter Brauner, FIET
#SiemensMobility #SiemensRyan Lai #foodpanda, and Austin R. Bryan, #CLP. Their sharing had really made a huge difference. Thank you.

Special thanks to the feedback from my last year’s CUHK EMBA2022 students as they requested the school to lengthen this course from 1.5 credit to 3.0 credit so that I can have more time to share my experience and discuss content more thoroughly with my students this year. It was indeed much more fruitful. Really thankful to like Anita ChanChris SoRicky LeeHans Till (CUHK Executive MBA, PMP)Daniel Ching and many others. It has been a year since they presented their final project. https://lnkd.in/gpHhgZS3

I enjoyed a lot with my students in this journey of learning. Wish my sharing can further nurture and more importantly empower them to be innovative leaders in their respective industries and professions. My last advice for them, “What should we do differently from yesterday so we can survive today (and perhaps tomorrow)”. Keep it up, team.

After almost 3 years of the Covid, our lives are gradually back to normal, at least, close to it. I am so grateful that I could meet with my EMBA students not only f2f in class (with masks), but also in causal dinners (without masks and with smiles) as well. I had a few dinners with different teams in my Corporate Innovation course in the last few weeks. Apart from discussing about innovation and technology, we talked about almost everything. I have a very good diversity in my class this year with business owners, corporate leaders from different industries, entrepreneurs and professionals like doctors, lawyers, accountants and engineers. That is an excellent mix to learn innovation. Really enjoyed our gatherings and understood a lot more about their lives and works. We all learned a lot more than in the classrooms. What a class! What a memory! Thanks to my fellow students. Appreciate Dop SunRachel Yu and Vincent Wong https://lnkd.in/gdH2YRny and a few other fellow students to organize such great gatherings. Hope the Covid is really getting away from us and we all can have more personal touch. It really matters and technology simply cannot replace it.

Just finished another two fruitful days with my CUHK EMBA students. I continued to talk about corporate innovation. Appreciate Ryan Lai#foodpanda to join us in the weekend and share his corporate innnovation and entrepreneurship experience with us. It was a fruitful and insightful session. Thanks Ryan.

I met Ryan when he was running his startup and now he is heading the foodpanda Hong Kong. He is bringing in his entrepreneurial experience to run foodpanda. We can all see the great achievements of Ryan and his company in the last few years.

It is often hard to balance execution and innovation. From Ryan, we all learnt a lot how to acheive results and at the same time to keep innovating like an enterprenur.

We have discussed a few key questions for the success of corporate innovation. Thanks my good students like Edmund ChanDop Sun to ask sensible questions as well.
1. What can corporates learn from the Startup Cycle?
2. How to empower staff to innovate with the support from experienced leaders and corporate resources?
3. How to prioritize and decide when and how to start a new business?

My goal is to empower my EMBA students to be entrepreneurial leaders to manage and grow their businesses. Will continue this mission in my journey of nurturing more future elite leaders for our society.

Another great cohort of CUHK EMBA has just started. Welcome to all elite leaders, executives and professionals to join our EMBA Class of 2024.

All of our students had an excellent start in our CUHK EMBA Residence Week. We can see another group of passionate and bright minds this year. This group is also a real demonstration of diversity in our EMBA programme in terms of gender, nationality, industry, profession and character as well.

Thanks to the leadership from Professor Pong Yuen, Howard Lam, and my colleagues Dominic ChanChun So and many others behind the scene, to make this week a fruitful and impactful one to everyone.

Heartfelt thank to our master professor and mentor Professor Andrew Chan and our elite alumnus Cally Chan, and Dr. Gilbert Cheung to share their knowledge and experience with us. Appreciate it.

May I wish all students of our CUHK EMBA Class of 2024 to have a joyful, meaningful and fruitful journey in the next 2 years. See you all in my #innovation and #technology class.

Glad to catch up with Cally Chan GM, #Microsoft Hong Kong, to exchange ideas on the innovation and technology ecosystem and how we can collaborate to co-contribute more to Hong Kong. It was a meaningful discussion. Appreciate that, Cally.

Cally and I have things crossing over each other. Cally is one of our elite #CUHK#EMBA alumni and I am now a professor and associate director of our EMBA programme in CUHK. We are both very passionate in enpowering the #innovation and #technology ecosystem, in particular #startups and #entrepreneurs, in Hong Kong. Will continue to co-creating values for the ecosystem.

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
