Today is a bright day with a sunny and clear sky. What a great day to kick off our collaborative partnership with The Hong Kong Institute of Bankers! OpenCertHub Academy (#OCHA) and The Hong Kong Institute of Bankers (#HKIB) are joining hands to upskill the data literacy of the executives and practitioners in the #Banking industry.

#Data is one of the most important assets for leading enterprises in today’s #DigitalEconomy. For #FinancialServices, data is the “new gold” or one of the most important assets these days. To unleash the power of data in the banking industry, everyone needs to speak data and treat it as their second business language.

Just having a core team of data scientists is not good enough to fully unleash the business values of data for banks. We are seeing that a few major international and local #banks are empowering the majority of their workforce on data literacy. They aim to embed a data mindset and skills with every possible colleague so that they can make use of data in their daily jobs. They also empower colleagues to communicate effectively and regularly with their data and IT teammates to come up with better and better analytics and data sources.

The prime objective of the “Data Literacy Empowerment Programme”, the flagship programme of OpenCertHub Academy (OCHA), is to democratize data literacy to everyone in a company so that they can seize the opportunities from data monetization and solve business problems with data analytics on daily basis.

The Hong Kong Institute of Bankers (HKIB) is one of the major institutes to provide training and certification services to the banking community in Hong Kong. Together, OCHA and HKIB aim to contribute to the growth of data talents in the banking community and enhance the competitiveness of the banking industry in Hong Kong through the pervasive use of data. Appreciate the leadership and trust from HKIB’s Carrie Leung and Philip Kam, and the great support from their teammates, and certainly my OCHA’s teammates Andy Kwok, Dr. Victor NgPatrick TsoiCandi Yeung and more. We look forward to collaborating with HKIB to co-creating values for the growth of #FinTech in Hong Kong.

Would you like to learn from them? You can now not just #WFH but also #LFH#LearnFromHome. Here you go! You can watch them in #ToaSirDataTalk official website www.ToaSirDataTalk.com.

Thanks again to my guests Dr. Ricky Tsui#ARUPAnna Lin#GS1HKSusanna Chiu#BonjourDaniel Kwong former #CITICTelecom, and Michael Yung#Google. Appreciate support from my teammates from #OpenCertHub#OpenCertHubAcademyAndy KwokEric Luo#HKPC#HKPCAcademyKaren F.Marius Chow, and the production crew🙏👍👏. Great team work!

*** In the MAKING: We have started another series of “Toa Sir Data Talk” with business, innovation and data leaders, e.g. CEO, Chief Data Officer, Chief Digital Officer #CDO, Chief Innovation Officer, Chief Information Officer #CIO#DataScientist, etc. If you are interested to share your data stories, please let me know.

The Road Ahead.. Today is the fourth day of the Year of the Tiger. It is the official work day of the year according to the #TongSheng #通勝. It is believed that if we started our work well today, we will have a prosperous and harvesting year. Wish you start your first working day well and have a great Year of the Tiger. 祝大家開工大吉,身體健康。

Rather than a busy work day, I started my first working day today in a mountain to plan my “road” in the Year of the Tiger. It is a clear sky, quiet and comfortable temperature today. It is a perfect day to think clearly on what to improve myself from last year and to achieve this year. How about you?

The more that I think of my journey, the better that I feel grateful to what I have today. Thanks to my family, my beloved ones, friends and schoolmates, mentors and mentees, professors and students, colleagues and business partners and many others in my journey. I am just lucky and fortunate to have met you.

Look forward to having another year of joy and accomplishment with you all.

Remarks: #TongSheng is a traditional Chinese calendar which marks what to do and what not to do every day. It is a great example of the first generation of Big Data which predicted what to do based on the past historical data. No machine learning and AI were there then but lots of wisdom from our ancestors.

Grateful that Hang Seng Bank, one of the major banks in Hong Kong, is determined to become a data-driven leader in the financial services. Appreciate the vision and leadership from the bank’s senior management to make this happen. It really sets a great example for Hong Kong companies to treat data as their strategic asset and how data play a game changer role in the Digital Economy.

Apart from data and technology parts, Data Literacy is equally critical for the success of a data-driven enterprise. Apart from English and Chinese, do you speak #Data? According to Gartner, Data is the second business language in the Digital Economy. Every employee, not just data team and IT team, needs to speak data to communicate with, argue with and persuade customers, colleagues, bosses, investors, partners, literally everyone around you. This is one of the top Future Skills ranked by almost all leading research firms.

It is my pleasure and honour having this opportunity to lead and deliver our Data Literacy Empowerment Programme #DLEP to the bank. DLEP aims to democratise data literacy to the majority of the workforce through a series of data literacy executive roundtables, experiential workshops, group projects, mentoring sessions, hackathons and more for the bank. It emphasizes on data mindset and culture, data storytelling, machine learning applications and hands-on experience. Thanks to the trust and support from Hang Seng Bank’s senior management especially the leadership from Patrick Khong, CDO of HASE, my CUHK’s teammates and OpenCertHub Academy’s data experts.

Higher customer expectations on digital experience and keen competition from data savvy banks and FinTech startups are some of key drivers for us to create this DLEP programme. In fact, it happened in not just financial services but also most of the major traditional industries.

If you would like to know more about our DLEP to ride on the journey of becoming a data-driven enterprise, I am happy to share my thoughts with you.

I was impressed by #ICBC Asia in the way how their senior management took #AI#BigData and #FinTech seriously. Usually, most of the senior leaders will only stay for 30 minutes of a training class and will excuse themselves from it. This time was very different.
All their top and senior management, including Chairman and Executive Director, actively participated in my AI and Big Data class. Guess what? They stayed till the very end of my class and actively participated in the whole day.

Really appreciate their leadership to demonstrate and lead by example. Their top management believe that continuous learning is the way to stay relevant and competitive in their financial services industry. By doing it themselves, it brings culture change to their colleagues.

My class today was on the Power Duo of AI and Big Data. It is a part of the Digital Leadership Series that I designed and led for the Asia Pacific Institute of Business #APIB of the #CUHK Business School.

I started my class today with a clear message to the ICBC team that they need to speak one more language on the top of Chinese and English in the digital economy. That is #Data. In order to be a #AIFirst and #DataDriven bank, everyone in the company has to have basic to advanced #DataLiteracy. Reskilling them on data is not an option but a necessity.

We then explained the AI and #MachineLearning technologies, business models and data monetization concepts to them. We also explored new AI applications in #FinancialServices and #DataGovernance with them. “Seeing Is Believing It”. I invited Patrick Tsoi, a veteran in #DataScience to use real data to demonstrate the power of Big Data in financial services. Thank you Patrick, ICBC team and CUHK team.

It is just a good start for the #DigitalTransformation for ICBC Asia. It is a journey and we are happy to contribute along with the team.

In today’s #DigitalEconomy, executives & professionals have a sense of urgency to master “The Power Duo of AI & Big Data”. In the last 2 days, I delivered an executive class on this. I am so grateful to have a class of highly-engaged students across industries. We had fruitful discussion on the opportunities & challenges of #AI & #BigData. Thanks to my fellow students.

My career journey has been highly related to data from my 1st job in #SiliconValley #Informix #RDBMS to later #BI#DW #BigData & #AI. My key takeaway from this journey is not just technology but also how to make use of data to create value for our customers & capture value for our companies.

The students learned about applications & technologies of AI, #MachineLearning & Big Data through cases #Airbnb#StitchFix #Lemonade #SquirrelAI #Linkedin #Uber #MasterCard.

Big thanks to Jade Tin Hei Lee from #ChowTaiFook and Calvin Cheng, CFA from #Wizpresso to share their experience with our students from a traditional company and a startup perspective respectively.

The Power Duo of AI & Big Data is a module of #CUHK #Digital #Leadership Series Program. #Platform #Strategy is another module. We launched it a few weeks ago as well.

Thanks for Edmund Lee and his teammates at #HKDC Hong Kong Design Centre to organize this year’s #KODW Knowledge of Design Week with theme on Designing Digital Future. It is a hybrid of virtual and physical conference with renowed #design and #digital experts around the globe as speakers.

Edmund’s team really gave us an excellent example of what the HK Design Centre always empowers us i.e. #CustomerCentricity. I can feel the details and processes that his team has been putting together to run this conference and helping every speaker and panelist in such a difficult period under Covid-19. Well done and appreciate it, team.

My discussion with Romeo Durscher from #DJI was very fruitful. One of the key takeaways for me is how his company connects many experts in #Drone#AI#MachineLearning and #BigData around the world through #Crowdsourcing and #SharingEconomy to build innovative models, technologies and applications to solve lots of problems in natural disasters, safety, health, etc.

For all #innovators and #entrepreneurs, while we may make money from our innovations, it is more important how we can make use of technologies to save lives and do social good. Great lesson today. Thanks Romeo.

It has been a year since I taught my favorite subject for #CUHK #MBA – Applications of #AI & #MachineLearning in #FinancialServices. I remember how engaged my MBA students like Daniel Lee Carmen Pan Olivia Saha & others were to learn about the subject. They did a few group projects on #PingAn #WeBank #DBS #HKEx impressively. Appreciate all guest speakers Wing Cheung Tim Chan, MBA, FLMIBianca HoJacob Wai 韋達人, LLM, MBA, FRM, CMA, MHKCS & Tim Leung to share their practical experience. My students loved this part very much.

A new cohort will start next week. Thanks for Grace Liang‘s & her team’s support to make it happened under the #Covid19. We received great interest & enrollment for this class. Will share the latest AI #innovations on #WealthTech #LendTech #BankTech #PayTech #InsurTech #RegTech & #MarketIntelligence. Again I have invited seasoned #FinTech, AI & #BigData #entrepreneurs & innovators from incumbents & #startups to share their experience. Thanks in advance for Vivek Mohindra 默威克 #KristalAIMedhy Souidi #DBS #TencentJacob Wai 韋達人, LLM, MBA, FRM, CMA, MHKCS #FitchGeorge Lee #Mastercard & Calvin Cheng, CFA #Wizpresso.

Look forward to another great learning journey with my #CUHKMBA students & guest speakers on AI in financial services.
