As a practitioner in the #innovation and #technology industry for 30+ years, I am so grateful to see that our Hong Kong is going to have a global showcase on how technology and innovation can empower a #SmartCity#SkyCity is an impressive project to build another landmark for Hong Kong. Something that we Hong Kong people can be proud of again https://lnkd.in/ethaW9vu.

Smart airport, top shopping mall and commercial buildings (#11Skies https://www.11-skies.com/ or #Retailtainment from New World Development), world-class Expo exhibition centre, international hotels plus all the major scenic spots in the Lantau Island like #DisneyLand, and more importantly, providing a seamless experience for the key stakeholders of our #ecosystem including customers, tourists, visitors, merchants, tenants, startups and many others from the Greater Bay Area #GBA and all major cities around the globe. Appreciate the great leadership from Adrian Cheng #NWD.

Today, I moderated an expert panel to discuss how technologies could create that seamless customer experience for our SkyCity. There are 2 more panels on #ProfessionalServices and #Tourism in the forum. It drew over 10,000 offline and online audiences to attend today’s forum. Thank you so much for our panelists Chris Au Young #HKAAVivian Lo #CathayPacificPaul Sin #NWD, and Francis Fong #HKITF

Here is my quote for the event:
“SKYCITY is a global showcase of how innovation and technology can generate a joyful experience for worldwide visitors. Emerging technologies are coming to us every day. The sky is the only limit on how innovation and technology can make a difference to customers and merchants in the SKYCITY. Come and experience it!”

Appreciate the effort from our MC Akina Fong and those behind the scene from #BrunswickGroup #K11 #NWD Quinton Chan, Mercury WongIvan ChanVincci Hui 許煒森 and many others. Let’s collaborate together to build a smart SkyCity.

What does #retirement mean to you? Are you ready for your retirement journey? Who are in the #ecosystem and how can we collaborate together to make a difference to prepare Hong Kong people, rich or poor, old or young, for our retirement? How #innovation and #technology can achieve something that couldn’t be done before? and more..

I was so grateful to gather a group of experts in the ecosystem of retirement to discuss in the Mastermind Series of Sun Life Hong Kong. Sun Life has been in Hong Kong for 130 years.. Yes, 130 years since 1892. To keep on innovating, they launched this series to empower their colleagues and advisors to think and act “BOLDER and Beyond”. More to come in the Mastermind Series in the months ahead.

We also did a few polling questions to get feedback from about 600 audiences. One key question is:
Which of the following aspects on retirement is the most important to you?
1. Financials
2. Health
3. Life Style and Social Circle

What is your answer? Close to 70% of our audiences chose #Health. We did have a deep discussion on these 3 aspects and how to balance them. We also explored different retirement ways in key cities around the world as well as #GBA.

Thank you so much to Sun Life’s Clement Lam and all the panel speakers Hedy SatLouis LeeCindy Wong and Raymond Lai to share their thoughts on an important journey that everyone of us does care for ourselves and our families. Appreciate the great support from Alice ChuckShirley MakCarmen Lo and their teammates, and my teammates from CUHK. Have a nice weekend.

Innovation for the New Normal was my theme for today’s sharing with Fujifilm’s customers and friends in an offline and online hybrid mode. Thanks to Fujifilm’s management Alan Chan Jon Chung Oliver LO and many others for their invitation and support.

In particular, I talked about how “Empire can strike back” which means how established and traditional enterprises and SMEs can leverage on innovation and technologies to seize opportunities and fight with or collaborate with tech giants and startups. #CustomerCentricity#Culture#OpenInnovation and #Intrapreneurship are the keys. I also signed a number of my books #數碼力大提升 to the participants today.

Look forward to exploring more collaboration with Fujifilm in the road ahead. Cheers.

I did an interview with Dr. Denis Yip 葉成輝, CEO of ASTRI, on the trend, opportunities and challenges for Innovation and Technology industry in the Greater Bay Area a few weeks ago. Here is my post:
https://lnkd.in/geXUkNtq

The video of the interview is available now. It was taken professionally by the ASTRI team and their production team. You don’t want to miss that out. Thanks again for their support.

Certainly, big thank to the bright mind on the scene Dr. Denis Yip 葉成輝#ASTRI and the master mind behind the scene Professor Andrew Chan#GBABusinessSchool.

#GBA#GreaterBayArea
#Innovation#Technology

#ASTRI 應科院 is one of the major pillars for Hong Kong #Innovation and #Technology #ecosystem. They have been empowering many tech companies, #startups and large enterprises and SMEs on applying technologies to solve problems from #FinTech to #MetaVerse, from #Cybersecurity to #IC.

I am grateful to sit down with Dr. Denis Yip 葉成輝, the CEO of ASTRI, to talk about his vision on the tech industry in #GBA and how Hong Kong can seize the emerging opportunities. I also learnt from Denis how he is leading ASTRI to empower Hong Kong companies and startups to leverage on their technologies and IPs to further develop their products and services.

We talked about many other interesting points and I really enjoyed our conversation. Denis is a leader with great vision and wisdom in particular on tech #talent cultivation. ASTRI not only has experienced researchers and technologists in house, but also trained so many talents who are now great entrepreneurs running their own startups. Dennis talked about ASTRI in fact is like a Kung Fu training school #ShaolinTemple #少林寺。 He is planning to build a strong alumni network so that they can continue to collaborate. It is also a good timing to attract and recruit Hong Kong citizens with tech background, who are now in foreign countries, to be back and work in Hong Kong.

Appreciate Denis to share his valuable experience with me and our on-site and online audiences. A big thank to Professor Andrew Chan Veronica Li Dicky Shek Amy Mak and many teammates from #GBABusinessSchool and Phoebe Yip 劉泇妍Chrysanthi.l. and many teammates from ASTRI to make this forum a success.
