Joined the GS1 Hong Kong Summit 2022 today in my capacity as the President of Internet of Things #IoT Industry Advisory Council https://lnkd.in/gZ3M-NrZ. Thanks for Anna Lin‘s invitation.

Really like the main theme “Enabling Growth through #IDD“. Guess what IDD means? We may recall the old memory of IDD which means the International Direct Dialing. IDD today means #Innovation#Disruption and #DigitalTransformation. I learned a lot more about ESG, Digital Transformation, New Retail, Data Analytics, eCommerce, Trade Finance, and MetaVerse from many speakers and panelists like Rico Lau#LawsgroupLouis Mah#MaximsSamuel lau#KerryLogisticsAnson Bailey (eMBA)#KPMGNelson Chow#HKMASandy Tan#DBS, and many others today.

More importantly, met many good friends f2f whom we haven’t seen each other physically for the last 3 years. Really felt great and warm to see many bright entrepreneurs and leaders such as Dr. Michael Chan #CafeDeCoralLucia Cheung#HKIMDanny Shum#Ztore#TVBKeith Wu#FulumCrystal Pang#PickupsVincent SoHenry Yeung#RTIA.

I am also very happy to see my elite #CUHK#EMBA students like Vincent WongEdmund ChanMae Chen there. Really grateful that my students have started engaging more with the #innovation and #technology#ecosystem as I often encourage them to do more. Well done.

Thank you so much to May Chung, FACKMAnna LinMignone ChengDr. Stephen LamCorinna Fung and many others from GS1 Hong Kong team #GS1HK to organize such a fruitful summit.

Don’t forget to download the excellent report “Retail Recharged: Engaging consumers with technology, purpose and trust – 2022 Survey” from GS1HK and KPMG. Thanks the perfect Duo Anna Lin and Anson Bailey (eMBA) to present its key findings on stage. Brilliant and insightful performance.

Grateful to have Cally Chan from #Microsoft to be my guest for another episode of the RTHK New Management Thinking programme #管理新思維. Appreciate her insightful sharing with us. Thanks to her teammate Bobo Wong for her great effort behind the scene.

We tapped into Cally’s brain on her view on a few interesting hot topics like Women In Tech, Hybrid Working Style, Startups, Digital Transformation, GenZ Talents, Sustainability and ESG, and certainly Cloud and MetaVerse.

We also explored the future of Hong Kong and GBA. Cally is a positive, passionate and visionary leader. She and I believe a healthy and vibrant ecosystem is super important for everyone’s success in Hong Kong. Knowing how to co-create values with the ecosystem will lead us to stay ahead of the curve.

Cally talked about “ABCD..EFGH”. What is it? Stay tuned to RTHK1 this Sunday Aug 21 at 2pm to listen to Cally’s sharing. https://lnkd.in/f-X8RaN

Glad to sit down and have a chance to chat with Simon Chan, the new Chairman of Hong Kong #Cyberport. Simon is an experienced banker and has been contributing to the #innovation and #technology#ecosystem in public and private sectors for decades.

We explored different strategies and best practices in Hong Kong and worldwide innovation and technology hubs. More importantly, we shared how to empower our current and future #startups and #entrepreneurs.

We discussed the trends of #FinTech#MetaVerse#AI#BigData#DigitalTransformation for traditional enterprises and more. I also shard my book #數碼力大提升 with him. It was fruitful and insightful discussion.

Thanks Simon. We look forward to seeing more impactful initiatives from Cyberport to Hong Kong with your leadership. Will be there to collaborate and support.

Congratulations to all the winners of the Digital Transformation of the Year Award of the 2022 Business GoVirtual Expo and Conference. Here are the awardees this year:

In particular, I was so glad to see Serena Pau from #CLP again and happy for her to win the award. She was one of the elite entrepreneurs with us at Cyberport and is now a brilliant intrapreneur at CLP. That is exactly what I am encouraging more corporates to have entrepreneurs to join them. It will bring their entrepreneurship experience, passion and innovative mindset to the companies. That is what corporates badly need. Well done, Austin R. Bryan,.

Thank you so much for Li Culsin from Baobab Tree Event and wilson chong of IoT HK Association to invite me as the Chairman of this award and an advisor for the conference. Happy to see so many friends f2f over the three days in the conference.

The conference lasted for 3 days and kicked off by the GOH, Professor Sun Dong, Secretary of Innovation, Technology and Industry Bureau ITIB, HKSAR Government. Glad to have his support to us. I was impressed by his sincere chats with many of us in the conference. Appreciate Culsin and her teammates to make this happened.

The Hong Kong Jewellery and Goldsmith Association has launched a meaningful and impactful project to empower their members (small to large practitioners in their industry) to learn, plan and take actions on digital transformation. The project’s Chinese name is 「推動珠寶零售行業數碼轉型能力提升」。The Association has key members from all major jewelry companies like Chow Tai Fook, Chow Sang Sang, etc.

With the support of the HKSAR Government and HKPC, the project will do education and awareness programme in the 1st phase. Then, they will collect feedback and plan for the phase 2. It is a very good program to empower a traditional industry to stay relevant and competitive in the digital age. To know more about this project, you can watch this video.

Thanks to Kent Wong 基哥,Chairman of the Association, to invite me to be the keynote speaker of this Kickoff Ceremony. I shared my thoughts on the critical success factors of digital transformation with a few hundred audiences on site and online. Received good questions from them as well. After my speech, we did have a fruitful panel with Kent and I being the moderators. Thanks for our panel guest Terrence HuiVincent SoEdmond Lai, and Abby Leung.

It was a good start for a great journey.

I have given and signed a few dozens of copies of my book #數碼力大提升 to encourage their members to add oil on their Digital Transformation journey.

“Think and Act BOLDER Culture: Co-creating Values for Our Customers” is the main theme for the 2nd Mastermind Forum of Sunlife Hong Kong.

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!

We had a nice evening in #Macau, well virtually. Macau is a beautiful place as you can see in the photo below. I had a webinar designed especially for audiences from Macau last night together with my CUHK EMBA teammates. Hope I can see f2f all my friends, students, and partners in Macau very soon.

The topic was Digital Transformation for Traditional Enterprises. I invited Winson C. W., our CUHK EMBA alumnus, and a Macau native, to share his experience with the digital transformation in Macau. I am very proud of what Winson and many other CUHK alumni from Macau have achieved. They are now contributing to the growth of Macau particularly by seizing the opportunities and managing the challenges arising from the GBA. Winson has shared a few local innovation cases led by our alumni, such as Judy Wong (Robi 3), Antonio (集運幫), and Acen 江總(澳覓). It was impressive. Thank you, Winson.

Winson also shared his CUHK EMBA journey, such as, learning from top industry leaders and faculties, picking up new knowledge, theories and models, making new connections, contributing to society, classmates becoming lifetime friends, enriching his global vision, and more. While most of Macau’s young generation has gone through an undergraduate programme, not too many of them have taken further to upskill themselves with an internationally recognized EMBA programme like CUHK. Apart from strategy, marketing, finance, and human capital, we also have a unique focus and strong faculty on #DigitalTransformation#CorporateInnovation#ChineseWisdom, and #Entrepreneurship – the most needed knowledge and skills in the VUCA*Digital Era.

To better contribute to Macau’s future growth in GBA, EMBA is a good option for the next generation of leaders in Macau to pursue. Here is a link for more.

See you all soon in Macau and have a great Easter Holiday with your family. Take care!
