#GBA (80+ million people in 11 cities of South China) and #ASEAN (650+ million people in 10 countries of SE Asia) are the two biggest and rapidly growing markets nearby Hong Kong. Enterprises, #SMEs and #Startups in Hong Kong are finding ways to seize these unprecedented opportunities for them.

Today, I was so grateful to have experts on GBA and ASEAN to share their experience in 2 consecutive forums. I moderated one forum on GBA in #SunLife in the morning and moderated another forum on ASEAN in #HKPC in the afternoon.

Appreciate King Leung #InvestHKPeter Mok #HKSTPJennifer Tan #AntGroupKeith Ip #SFExpressDick Fong and Thomson Ho #10Life to share their experience on the ecosystem collaboration in GBA.

Thanks Joseph Chan #AsiaPayStanley Sy CCRA #Sanomicswun chi lam #SpaceshipSunny Chau #HKTDCGary Lam #AsiaCEOCommunity and Sunny Chow from Leading Star Vietnam to share about their market entry strategy to ASEAN, consumer behaviors, partnership models and talents management for ASEAN markets.

Heartfelt thank to Clement LamCynthia Sit, and Alice Chuck #SunLifeKaren F. Marius Chow #HKPC and my #CUHK teammates to make these 2 forums a successful learning opportunity for everyone.

I believe Hong Kong can reach another peak in the next 5 to 10 years by leveraging on #innovation#entrepreneurship #intrapreneurship and #technology to capture the arising opportunities in GBA and ASEAN. Creating synergy through the collaboration of two regions is critical for our success. That is what I have been working on as well. Let’s add oil 大家加油!

Really grateful to have an opportunity to discuss with GBA and digitalization experts in Hong Kong as well as mainland China. Thanks for #SAP #HKET #HKPC #GBABusinessSchool jointly organized it.

In particular, I was really pleased that we had my mentoring professor Andrew Chan, the President of the #GBA Business School, to share his views on the development of the GBA region.

Then, we had a panel on #DigitalTransformation in the context of the GBA with 2 of my friends. I firstly talked about the key success factors of digital transformation where customer centricity was the key. Andrew Ling from #SAP shared his experience to manage supply chain under uncertainty. Edmond Lai from #HKPC went through a few examples how #SMEs in Hong Kong to leverage on technologies to seize opportunities and manage challenges in these few years including the pandemic time.

Two leading enterprises from the mainland, #Bosch (China) Investment Ltd. and #Terminexus (Shanghai) Co. Ltd. also shared their digital transformation experience. They were the winners of the Digital Transformation Awards #鼎革獎

Our 3rd #InnoPreneur Forum finally went f2f today at #HKPC after the 1st & 2nd forums were online. 150+ audiences physically joined our forum plus those folks through live streaming & online. Our theme was #MarTech. Thanks for the leadership & effort from #HKPC Mohamed ButtKaren F.Marius Chow & Elly Yip and #HKIM Ivan Wong 陳裕光博士 to co-organize this forum.

I moderated a panel discussion with MarTech gurus Daryl ChoyJohn Lo #iClickEdwin Wong #Cloudbreaker and Allen Wong #Deloitte. We talked about how to leverage #BigData in MarTech including #KOL #analytics#SocialMedia#Miniprogram#CustomerJourney#KPI, etc. We also explored the challenges in adopting & justifying MarTech investment especially in the context of #SME #Digitalization. Really appreciate their sharing. We all learned a lot.

The 2021 #HKICTAwards is coming. Are you ready? Over 350+ audiences joined our experience sharing session today live on YouTube https://lnkd.in/gk9GRF6. They asked many good questions. Great sign. Thanks #OGCIO #HKPC.

The winner of the 2020 HKICT Award Grand Award Davon Hui #Blutechio, experienced judge Leonard Chan, the Awards’ Standard Assurance Subcommittee Prof Wong Kam Fai, & me were there to share our experience.

My key takeaways:

1. Identify the right problem or pain point to focus on

2. Passion, purpose, social impact & charisma count on top of #innovation & #technologies.

3. Scalability of your business to show your “hockey stick” growth

4. #KYJ Know Your Judges is equally important as #KYC Know Your Customers. Every customer is different so is every judge. Find out who they are & predict what they will ask.

5. Establish your credibility by proven cases, customer traction, industry endorsement, etc.

6. Time management, fully utilize your presentation and Q&A time

7. Preparation, rehearsal, proactively get third party feedbacks. Do you have devil advocate in your network? Find them & get them challenge you.

8. Rehearsal, backup plan for your demos, backup slides…

Happy to share more. Hope you can learn more from your journey & widen your networks.

Here you go! Our 3rd #InnoPreneur Forum co-organized by #HKPC & #HKIM is coming live on Jul 30. The last two forums were on #FoodTech & the upcoming one is on #MarTech. The series of forums aims to empower #SMEs to leverage #Technologies & #Innovation to seize the opportunities in the digital economy & boost up their competitiveness, productivity & efficiency.

The MarTech forum will be a #f2f event (more interaction👍🙂). We have invited elite MarTech leaders to be our speakers & panelists. Edwin Wong #CloudbreakerAllen Wong #DeloitteJohn Lo #iClickDaryl Choy. Grateful to be the panel moderator to learn from them.

To support our SMEs to learn more about digital transformation, I will give a complimentary copy of my book #數碼力大提升 for the first 200 enrollments of this forum.
