“Every leader needs to be a #DigitalLeader in the #DigitalEconomy.” #Digital is not just an enabler for business but also a #GameChanger for almost all industries. To stay competitive and relevant, every executive and professional need to #reskill and #upskill on their digital leadership instead of leaving it to just #IT colleagues.

A team of well-experienced digital practitioners, innovative entrepreneurs & I, together with my #CUHK teammates, have designed a “Digital Leadership Series for Executives” programme to empower today’s leaders from traditional industries with digital #Mindset#Capability & #DigitalWorkforce management.

The series include 8 two-day modules with lectures, cases, discussions, guests sharing & hands-on workshops. Participants can take one to all of these modules. Topic ranges from #DesignThinking #DigitalMarketing #CustomerEngagement #CorporateInnovation #Entrepreneurship #Agile Development #AI #BigData #Blockchain #Platform.

Good news is that most of these modules are eligible for the #RTTP https://lnkd.in/gwwfXHT funding from the government.

Appreciate our team’s effort Matthew Chan Teddy Liu KC Tsui Bernard Suen Ivan Ng.

A brand new year is coming. Let’s have a great start. My first open talk in 2021 will be on Jan 13. The theme of my sharing session is “Winning with #DigitalLeadership“.

In today’s digital age, every leader needs to be a digital leader. It is not just the job of #TECH guys but also a crucial competence that every leader of large to small companies should possess to seize the emerging opportunities in the digital economy, and keep your companies and yourselves relevant and competitive.

I will talk about 8 secret weapons of the digital leaders and their digital talent strategy in the session.

This forum is organized by #CUHKEMBA where we are providing a number of #CUHK #EMBA and #ExecutiveEducation courses on #CorporateInnovation#Entrepreneurship and #DigitalTransformation to cultivate the next generation of leaders in the #DigitalEconomy. I will talk about it as well.

The world’s top 5 companies are #Platform in terms of Market Cap. They are #Microsoft, #Apple, #Amazon, #Alphabet, #Facebook, not the traditional leaders. Successful unicorns are mainly platforms like #Uber, #Airbnb I have designed a 2 days Platform Strategy & Breakthrough training program for executives to learn & unlock the potentials of platform business models for their companies. The training was done last week. The participants were from #FinancialServices, #Retail, #Telecom. We have discussed a few inspirational cases #Airbnb, #ZBJ, #XFire, #Qihoo, #Dianrong, #Quicken, #Adobe, #Nike, #Hema, etc. The participants learned about the best industry practices of platform like #NetworkEffect, #ChickenAndEgg, #Multihoming, #Disintermediation, #Monetization #Governance, etc. I have also invited Norman Tam from #Tencent & Samuel C.H. Wan from #Stockviva to share their wisdom to design, run, monetize, govern their platforms. It was very useful. To thank them & my students for a fruitful two days, everyone received my book #數碼力大提升 with my autograph. This course is a part of the #DigitalLeadershipSeries for Executive Program that I designed for #CUHK. Other courses include #AI, #Blockchain, #CorporateInnovation, #Entrepreneurship, etc. More here. https://lnkd.in/gZBZmjp

#Platform is the KING. The world’s leading companies are running Platform business. SMEs are being replaced by large & small platforms from #startups. How can we compete in #DigitalEconomy?

Why are platforms so powerful? Can we or should we be a platform? How to build, cultivate, operate, govern & sustain a platform profitably? What are capabilities, culture & tech needed? More importantly, what is the best-kept secret of a winning platform?

To master all these, please don’t miss my class “Platform Revolution & Breakthrough” at #CUHK Biz School Asia-Pacific Institute of Biz on Oct 14-15, 2020.

I have talked about Platform in my #EMBA #MBA #Tech #Innovation #Entrepreneurship classes & seminars plus in my new book #數碼力大提升 (Boost up Your Digital Power) https://lnkd.in/g4_RWBE. I will explore deeper in this course with #international & #local cases.

#Corporate #SME #Startup leaders & executives are keen on the course & have already enrolled it. Good news is that the course is eligible for the govt #RTTP scheme & the participants may get #subsidy from the scheme but have to enrol the course quick (2 weeks b4 the class starts) to be qualified.

Today was the graduation ceremony of the 3rd cohort of our #MiniMBA programme co-orgainized by #CUHK #BusinessSchool #APIB & #Convoy since April 2019. We’re so grateful to have trained over hundreds of high-calibre Convoy executives. https://lnkd.in/gmXVW_3

Every cohort had 9 modules taught by our faculties with deep real-world industry experience. #ActionLearning projects done by our students were full of #entrepreneurship passion. The best projects are further cultivated & funded to progress further. Industry seminars on #FinTech topics were held https://lnkd.in/gzQy_-8. The inspired Convoy team then initiated its own #Hackathon #Finspire with great success https://lnkd.in/gJQupVP. Convoy also supported #Cyberport #CUPP & joined #MIT #InnovationNode workshop.

The last 15 months was a fruitful training journey for all students from Convoy & CUHK faculties. That is an excellent example of how corporates & universities worked together to cultivate the next generation of leaders to seize unprecedented opportunities in digital economy & manage chaotic world.

Thanks to Convoy Wing-Fai Ng Almond Wong Shin Kin Hang Shirley Tsui Miu Ling & CUHK Waiman Cheung Wendy Lai Rebecca Wong. Appreciate great effort from our faculties & students and congrats to all accomplishments.

 

5 passionate and innovative teams from our CUHK Convoy MiniMBA programme have presented their “NextBigThing” projects today. The winning team not only won a marvellous award but also their project will have good potential to be a real project.
It was the most important part of the whole programme as each team has to capitalize what they learnt from the 10 modules of the programme & innovate like a startup. Rather than just training, it cultivates the intrapreneurship & innovation mindset & capabilities for the participants. It becomes a DNA of the staff & the company for sustainable competitiveness in the ever-changing DigitalEconomy.  
The programme include EmergingTechnology, DesignThinking, High Performance Leadership, CorporateGovernance, Strategy Investment Decisions, and more. I’m so grateful to have a chance to contribute, design, teach & coach the participants.  Look at how they summarized what they learnt on the white boards – impressive. Witnessing their changes & improvement is amazing. It has been 2 cohorts already & the 3rd cohort is on now. Keep it going, teams. You are all our champions.
Big thanks to Convoy Almond Wong, Shirley Tsui Miu Ling, Bobo Wong, WF Ng, Henry Shin CUHK APIB Rebecca Wong, Prof WM Cheung,  Wendy Lai

Macau gets into the next decade with great opportunities. It was not said for no reason.

The new government will start on 20 December 2019. It will be led by a great leader Ho Iat-seng who has extensive experience in various industries and a strong relationship with the mainland and Asia.  In addition, all casinos are required to renew their licenses by 2022. The policies of the Greater Bay Area from the Central Government will be provided more support to Macau. Portuguese-speaking countries, such as Portugal and Brazil, provide good access to their home markets plus countries in Europe and Latin America. More are being explored like RMB Clearing, Stock Exchange, Green Financing, Smart City, MICE, etc. Certainly, there are challenges to be resolved by the new administration together with the business and academic leaders in Macau.

In the past few years, I have been contributing to the government, business and academic communities in Macau especially on innovation and Technology (FinTech, AI, Big Data, Smart City ), Entrepreneurship, Talent Development, and Training areas.

If you are interested in sharing your knowledge and contributing your expertise with Macau or if you have ideas or plans to leverage these opportunities in Macau, please feel free to contact me for potential collaboration.  Let’s nurture Macau to be another great and smart city in the Greater Bay Area and contribute to improving the quality of lives and economy in the region.

Here are some of the snapshot photos taken in my engagement with Macau societies.
