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 Butt, Karen 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 Choy, John Lo #iClick, Edwin 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.
In order to help strengthen the #DigitalLiteracy of the audiences, I presented over 150 complimentary copies of my book #數碼力大提升 to the participants today. I also happily signed my names on the books & took photos with those who received my book.
Glad to see many partners, friends & students of mine were there to support me. Thank you to all. Have a great weekend.
You may review our 1st and 2nd InnoPreneur forums here:
#SMEs are keen on picking up technologies but don’t have confidence on it. I had a chance to share my experience with the SMEs in a forum on #SME #Digitalization. It was an interactive discussion and the SMEs asked quite a lot of sensible questions. Fortunately, we could do it in a hybrid mode with #f2f and #online participants.
One of the questions from the particpants was which technology they should start with. My answer was that starting with a customer pain point and then look for new ways to solve it. If #technology helps, then use it. #Empathy on customers is the key for any successful business for many decades and it has no difference in today’s #DigitalEconomy.
Thanks for Hong Kong Commerce and Industry Associations #HKCNIA and #IOTHK to invite me to share my experience. I have talked about some of the key insights from my book #數碼力大提升 and gave a few of the books to the participants. #DBS #PAOB #HKPC also shared their experiences how to help SMEs on #DigitalTransformation and #Cybersecurity.
Heartfelt thanks to #全港各區工商聯 #香港物聯網 Wilson Chong and Sam Wu for organizing such a great forum.
#SME #Digitalisation is not a yes or no question anymore. It is a question of how. Several months ago, I had a discussion with Karen F. & Marius Chow from 香港生產力促進局 #HKPCAcademy on this after I have published my book #數碼力大提升.
How can we bring the wisdom of SME leaders, innovative #entrepreneurs from #startups & #professionals together, and generate sustainable synergy among these experts? How other SMEs, which have just started or not yet begun their digitalisation journey, could learn from this #community of experts? That was the start of this #InnoPreneur #platform.
#HKPC has done a great job to put these all together. You will see experience sharing forums on major industries, #startups solutions showcase for these industries, subject matter experts to interact with audiences in live #KOL style, #eClincs where SMEs can meet experts for #consultation, startup showcase & certainly #training, #workshops & site visits.
Please join our 1st #InnoPreneur Forum on #FoodTech #FoodIndustry on Mar 26. HKPC will further share our year-long InnoPreneur Series. All SMEs, startups & #ecosystem stakeholders are welcome to join. Thanks so much for #HKPC teams to make this happen. See you.

Today is a special day for me. I have just received my book #數碼力大提升. It is the best gift that I have ever received in the #MidAutumnFestival of my life.
Also, it came on time as I was giving a keynote speech on #SME #Digitalization today in a series of webinars hosted by #HSBC Commercial Banking & #SMELAB.

#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.
My new book #數碼力大提升 on digital transformation: 各位朋友，經過多個月的努力，終於完成我這本書 <數碼力大提升>，把我30多年創科及企業 #數碼轉型 的實戰經驗與大家分享。大家可到我書的網頁知多一些本書的内容: https://lnkd.in/gagkR9k
感覺是完成一個大project, 甚至博士論文，但十分有意義。在疫情或疫境中，大家需要善用科技克服挑戰; 在疫情後更要在 #數碼經濟 中掌握商機。”數碼力即競爭力”已是 #新常態。希望我的分享能幫助大小企業及個人裝備好，迎接未來的數碼世界。
十月後各大書局及網上正式發售，感謝支持。特别感謝很多專家及朋友的支持才能做好這本書:Kent Wong Simon Loong Herbert Chia Hugh Chow Peter Yan Albert Wong Daniel Chan Anna Lin Charleston Sin Jason Chiu Carrie Leung Francis Ngai Peter Koo FCPA,CA,AICPA,CPA(Aust),ACCA,CIA,CFE,CISA,CISM Rocky Cheng Alaric Chu 朱子昭 Simon Ho Andrew Chan David Ho Dr. George Lam, 巢國明先生, Prof. Lin, Prof. N.R.

“Can traditional enterprises stay competitive in the Age of AI?” & “Can we stay ahead of the curve in the Age of AI?”. These are the two key questions that today’s business leaders, executives & professionals in traditional & even technology companies are asking themselves.
My #CUHK #BusinessSchool #APIB teammates & I have put together a 2 days executive education program “The Power Duo of AI and Big Data”. It aims to answer the 2 key questions above. Find out more here.
The format of the program is a combination of lectures, case studies, group discussion, demo and hands-on, fireside chats with top business executives and AI leaders from corporates, #startups & #SMEs.
“Keep #Learning” or “#Reskilling” is one of the smartest ways to spend our time under the #Covid19. Good news is that this program is supported by the HK government #RTTP scheme. Participants may apply for the funding support & will pay only 1/3 of the fee.
The schedule is set on Aug 19 and 20, 2020. Hopefully it can be delivered in our campus classroom but it is also ready for a hybrid mode of campus and online Zoom. See you there.
