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.

Here you go for our third Mastermind forum this year for Sun Life Hong Kong and its financial advisors. The main theme this time was “Everyone Speaks Data” or “全民「講」數”。The last 2 Mastermind forums can be reviewed here:
https://lnkd.in/g_dAewVp
https://lnkd.in/gnuE3yEf

We aim to inspire and encourage Sun Life colleagues and ecosystem to co-create values for their customers with data. Good panel discussion as well as interaction with the f2f and online audiences.

I am grateful to have experienced AI and data corporate leaders, entrepreneurs and consultants in town as my panel speakers, including Patrick Khong #HASEJacob Wai, FRM, FFA FIPA, FCMA, CSDP, MHKCS, LLM, MBA #DeloitteCalvin Cheng, CFA #Wizpresso and certainly our host Alex Wong #Sunlife. Really appreciate their insightful sharing. Thanks to SunLife Clement Lam Alice ChuckShirley Mak, the supporting team and my CUHK teammates today.

It takes not only IT team effort but also collaboration with data-literate colleagues at all business levels. Senior management’s determination on nurturing a data culture is very important but it is not enough. Pervasive use of data across the enterprise is the key for success. To unlock the values of data, not only IT and Data teams need to do a good job, all others need to see the values of data in their daily jobs and use data as their business language every day.

Hang Seng Bank is a great example and one of the pioneers in Hong Kong to go along this direction. Patrick is leading this change and empowering majority of their workforce on data literacy. They are also nurturing a group of citizen data scientists in different units to act as culture carrier to build, empower and sustain data culture. More here https://lnkd.in/g3PXKFYS.

Jacob and Calvin shared practical approaches to achieve this goal. Alex has also started this journey at Sun Life HK. This direction also aligns well with my vision and experience. My teammates from OpenCertHub Academy and CUHK are supporting quite a few companies in Hong Kong, including Hang Seng Bank, to empower their staff to nurture data culture, mindset and skills. To know more about our Data Literacy Empowerment Programme #DLEP, please check it out here www.ochacademy.com

Look forward to empowering more companies and talents to make smart use of data everyday.

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.

#Data is no doubt the most important asset of leading enterprises in the #DigitalEconomy. The best way to learn about the use of data in businesses is to speak with the leaders and data experts in major industries.
