Just finished conducting a 4 days intensive and fruitful EMBA course on Innovation and Intrapreneurship Management for CUHK. On one hand, I am exhausted. On the other hand, I am very grateful as 83 top executives from the mainland China participated my class on Zoom even under the pandemic situation. Engaging 83 executive students for 4 full days on Zoom (plus conducted in Putonghua) was not easy as you could imagine but we did have a joyful and valuable learning experience together.
Not only the number of students has broken my record of teaching EMBA class, the quality of the students were very impressive. They came from different industries like property, professional services, design, manufacturing, engineering, technology and even agriculture. At the beginning, I had some doubt on how much they wanted to learn innovation and how much effort they would put on a course as they are all busy and uprising bosses and top executives. To my surprise, they were serious and really put lots of effort to learn. Really appreciate their passion and perservance to learn.
Apart from going through core concepts and models, we learned corporate innovations and intrapreneurship by exploring 10 influential and inspiring internationl and Chinese cases. We discussed, debated and learned through this process. It was also my honour to have three elite leaders as my guest speakers to share how they innovate as a startup (Sum Wong from #EventX), a tech giant (Jacqueline Chong from #Amazon#AWS) and a traditional enterprise (Damien Wu#ChinaChem). We all learned a lot from them. Really appreciate it.
Now, I need to relax a bit and get a good sleep. Enjoy the Easter Holiday!

Grateful to see and contribute to another great offline conference today. The 6th #Cloud Forum Hong Kong was successful launched today at the #HKCEC. The main theme was Cloud HyperDrive in Disruptive Time.
I was moderating the 1st panel of the forum and the topic was #CloudMigration. We had a good mix of experiences in our panel so we could make insightful discussion from different perspectives. It included well established company Dr. Ted Suen, MH #MTR, vibrant #FinTech #InsurTech #Startup Michael Kwan Yu Chan #Bowtie and leading Cloud Service provider #AWS Olivier Klein .
It was a very insightful discussion. We touched on internal buy in, Capex and Opex changes in adopting Cloud, governance, partner selection, outsourcing strategy, SME challenges, etc. Thank you for all our panelists’ insightful and practical experience sharing.
Thanks for the great support from Victor Lam #OGCIO, Peter Koo FCPA,CA,AICPA,CPA(Aust),ACCA,CIA,CFE,CISA,CISM from #Deloitte, Catherine Chan from #Kornerstone and many others.
Felt happy and warm to see many friends in person in these 2 days at HKCEC. It has been a long time. Physical forums are just beautiful. Hope that continues and gets bigger and bigger with good health for all. Take care!
#TECH in #China becomes a hot topic in the West these days. I have conducted an online class on “Emerging TECH in China” to the fellow executive students from one of the top universities in Europe, the #ImperialCollege Imperial College London. It is a part of the one week program of #CUHK The Chinese University of Hong Kong to the Imperial College Business School in #London.
I talked about the Tech landscape, the #startup #ecosystem and #CorporateInnovation in China. I covered hot topics like the foreign market and investment strategy, self-reliance capabilities, #5G, #AI, #Semiconductors, Corporate #intrapreneurship, talents, #GreaterBayArea, #HangSengTechIndex, tech giants returning from #Nasdaq to Hong Kong and Shanghai #StockExchanges, etc.
I used a number of cases like #Baidu, #Alibaba, #Tencent, #ByteDance, #TikTok, #AntFinancial, #SenseTime, #PingAn, #Haier, #Huawei, #BYD, #XiaopengMotors, #Hema, #Xiaomi, #Qihoo360, #SequoiaCapital, #IDGCapital, #MatrixPartners as examples to show the strength and potential risks of China Tech.
The Imperial College’s students showed great interest on this topic, were engaged well and asked lots of sensible questions. I also learned a lot from their views and feedbacks as well. Thank you so much for their active participation.
#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.
