Enjoyed my chat with Harris SUN, Founder and CEO, #RaSpect RaSpect Intelligence Inspection Limited in my OpenCertHub Academy office. I knew Harris when he has just started his #entrepreneurship journey back a few years ago. We both love #AI and #Data.

Back then, I have already appreciated his vision and determination to become an enterprenur after early career in a large multinational firm. Now his company is an elite #AI #PropTech #startup with major clients around the globe. RaSpect is one of the best AI startups from Hong Kong. His innovation use AI to inspect and predict defects and potential repairs for buildings and skyscrapers. Congrats on being one of the KPMG 2022 China Leading PropTech 50. Well done and proud of you, Harris.

We discussed about his market development plan, challenges and opportunities, joys and pains, and many other experience sharing. Enjoyed our conversation.

Christmas is coming. My OpenCertHub partner Andy Kwok and our teammates have set up a Christmas tree in our office. Harris is the first one to take a photo with me with that beautiful tree. Early Merry Christmas to you, Harris. Will continuously support you as always. Add oil!

Lots of Christmas parties are coming. Wish you all enjoy all these long missed f2f parties. Merry Christmas 🎉🍷🍷🌲.

My belief is that empowering people to do fishing is always better than serving them fish all the time. Our data and IT professionals have been doing a great job to help busness users to prepare reports and analytics so that the users can make better decisions, actions and even predictions. In the highly competitive envirnoment in the digital economy, doing this is simply not good enough to stay relevant.

That’s why we OpenCertHub Academy #OCHA www.ochacademy.com, a passionate and experienced team on data science and data culture, design our Data Literacy Empowerment Programme #DLEP to empower leaders and users at all levels across the whole organizations in major industries, such as financial services, property, transportation, utility, retail and so on, to speak the 2nd business language – Data. What it means is that everyone communicates, argues and wins with data as a habit in their daily conversation, meetings and tasks. We understand customers, seize opportunities and tackle problems through the smart use of data.

We aim to nurture and change the data culture of the organizations through training, data forums with industry experts and startups, cross-team data projects, community and more. Really grateful and thankful to see BEA to have a visionary leadership to go along with us in this journey of data culture transformation. We cultivated a group of Citizen Data Scientists (CDS) as the change agents to drive data culture change in their respective departments. We also have trained over hundreds of Data Citizens (DC) who now have the data mindset to use data more often in their daily jobs. The journey continues and more to come.

We thank for the trust from BEA senior management to us and have us as their trusted companion in the Data Literacy Empowerment journey. Really appreciate the collaboration and teamwork from BEA’s Data Team Kenny Au, FinTech & IT Team Stephen L. and Training & Development Team Doris Tong, and their bright teammates. Thank you! With their effort and support, we did build a very solid foundation and mutual trust to grow better and faster in 2023 and beyond. Look forward to sharing more experience with you all next year.

We had a live demonstration of Edutainment at the nice SAP collaborative office today. After a few sharing sessions on data literacy and data analytics, old friends and new friends were enjoying the famous and tasty German and Belgium beers, and great food.

First, we had some food of thoughts from Esmond Tong, the newly onboard MD of SAP. Congratulations to Esmond for his new journey at SAP.

I, as OpenCertHub Academy’s President, talked about the importance of data literacy democratization to traditional industry leaders and introduced our Data Literacy Empowerment Programme #DLEP. DLEP aims to empower enterprises to build a strong and sustainable data culture and empower the majority of their employees to think, speak and act on data. More can be found here www.ochacademy.com.

Greg Wong from SAP then talked about the augmented analysis. Clients and friends from SAP and OpenCertHub Academy attended the sharing sessions. The sharings were insightful but we saved the best for the last.

The beers, chit chats and joyness were all over SAP office to celebrate the mid autumn festival. What a gathering!

Thanks to Esmond TongAndrew LingGreg WongCannie TsangHelen LamSuki Chan and their SAP teammates to organize such a great #EduTainment for us. Should do more and will do… Not just beer but reconnecting with friends and clients.

In the turbulent time worldwide, we all really treasured and were grateful to have such a gathering. May you all have a pleasant, safe and warm mid-autumn festival holiday with your families and friends.

Finally completed the “Data Monetization Strategy: Creating Value Through Data” program organized by MIT Sloan School of Management 美國麻省理工大學斯隆商學院. It was one of the best data strategy programs in the recent few years. Even I have solid experience and background on AI and Big Data, I found that this program provides very relevant practices to monetize our data asset.

Big thanks to Dr. Barb Wixom‘s sharing and effort to put together this insightful program for us. My classmates or learning partners were from all over the world but we have a common goal to find the best way to monetize data. We formed a cross-country, cross-company and cross-function community and had lots of forums in the program to exchange views on relevant topics. That was one of the best parts in the program.

The course was not that easy as we might think of. It took me a few months to go through a series of modules and assignments. However, it is worth spending effort on this course out of my already-packed schedule.

The program had quite strict requirement to grant the certification to the participants and really tested my knowledge and persistence. My drive is that we are not just learning a new technology. To stay relevant in today’s digitally-disruptive world, we got to have the mindset to keep learning and innovating. Grateful that I did it and was granted the certificate.

My key takeaway is that it takes more than data and technology to monetize data effectively. Democratizing data literacy to everyone at all business levels and empowering them with data mindset are critical for data monetization success. That is what my team and I at OpenCertHub Academy have been empowering quite a few enterprises in Asia to do so.

If you would like to know more about this MIT program, here is a good video for it https://lnkd.in/gVZcdnuq

Enjoy learning and innovating!

Grateful to have Dr. Victor Ng to co-deliver our joint AI for Financial Services course to ICBC (Asia) at CUHK today. Really appreciate the full-day presence of Miss Gao, the Chairman and Executive Director of ICBC(Asia) together with their senior management. That was an excellent Lead-by-Example for all leaders. If you would like to cultivate and change your colleagues, you demonstrate it first. Really appreciate it, Miss Gao.

Dr. Ng and I have designed a Data Literacy Empowerment Programme #DLEP to empower all levels of colleagues in organizations to speak data. Today, I shared about how AI applies to financial services with real cases and examples worldwide while Dr. Ng cultivated the participants on data culture and mindset through experiential exercises. We have been doing it for many enterprises especially banks. What a practical combination to illustrate how leading enterprise is making good use of data to win the hearts of their customers. To know more about DLEP, please visit OpenCertHub Academy www.ochacademy.com.

The most impressive and rewarding part for me and Dr. Ng was the sharing from our students about their findings and suggestions from their team exercises. After we have shared our experiences, our students not only digested the key points well, but also come up with solid suggestions to make changes in ICBC to empower their colleagues to be citizen data scientists and data citizens. More importantly, their own data mindset has changed and they appreciate even more to use data to solve problems. Thanks to all for your effort. Congratulations and welcome aboard to the DLEP journey.

Another bright day today. Apart from the sunny sky today, we did have a fruitful forum with the bright minds from the AI industry and bright talents from the China Everbright Bank Hong Kong Branch #CEBHK. It is a part of our Data Literacy Empowerment Programme #DLEP for CEBHK organized by OpenCertHub Academy #OCHA and Hong Kong Institute of Bankers #HKIB.

Appreciate the valuable insights and experience sharing from our guest speakers. It includes Ken Shih#Saxo#SaxoMarketsCalvin Cheng, CFA#Wizpresso, Daniel Ling #OneConnect, and Edwin Hui#Capco. CEBHK’s C-suite together with their colleagues have actively participated our panel in their beautiful collaborative space. Thank you so much for the full support from Nancy Wu, Fanny Chan, their CEBHK’s C-suite and teammates. Also grateful to have my teammates from OpenCertHub and OpenCertHub Academy for their great effort behind the scene to make this forum an impactful one.

We went through a number of practical use cases, shared some key challenges, explored how to justify investment on AI in financial services. More importantly, how to nurture a data mindset and culture across the banks. It means from top management to all levels of colleagues have to be engaged and use data everyday.

In fact, MIT Slogan has a new article just published in May 2022. The core message is that Data is a team sport and the entire organization is the team. This requires data democratization, the idea that data should be in the hands of every employee.
https://lnkd.in/diqnCF4u. This echoes what we talked about today as well as what my team at OpenCertHub Academy is believing in. We aim to empower employees of an organization at all levels with data literacy. Through the collaboration between the data-literate colleagues from different business units and data experts, their organizations will be able to stay ahead of their competition by unblocking more values from data.

I was impressed by the way Nancy Wu, the Deputy CEO of CEBHK, engaged with us and her colleagues today. Here is how she summarized what she learned today from the forum. Her 3 key takeaways today are.
1. Ecosystem
2. Co-creation
3. Roadmap

With Nancy’s leadership, I am confident that we can effectively empower her teammates with the right data mindset and skills to grow and stay ahead of their competition in the AI Era.
