What a morning with old and new friends in the Peak after having lots of moon cakes last night. I went up early so I could enjoy my coffee and breakfast in the Pacific Coffee shop with the best bird’s eye view of Hong Kong. I took a picture with the new #peaktram as well. Met a beautiful cat to walk along with us. Yes, it was a #cat not a dog. What a lovely trip!

Really happy to see my mentor Dr. George Lam and many good friends again there. Thanks Fonia Wong 黃仰芳Alex Au and their #HKDAS teammates to organize this hiking gathering. We had veterans and #GenZ talents on #innovation and #technology, especially #DigitalAsset#MetaVerse#FinTech and #AI, joined the exercise today.

#HKDAS Hong Kong Digital Asset Society is a new organization to bring those who are interested in Digital Asset together to innovate and shape the future of this field in Hong Kong. So honoured to be engaged as one of their industry advisors to contribute and learn more about this emerging industry.

As a strategist and practitioner in the data economy and FinTech ecosystem, I am so grateful and honoured to have the opportunity to contribute my experience to TransUnion, one of the most respectful data leaders in the world.

Thanks Marie Claire Lim Moore and her management team’s trust and support. I look forward to collaborating with them to further leverage on data to create even more values to companies and individuals in Asia especially Hong Kong and GBA.

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.

Thank you Michael Leung and Stephen Lau (Deputy Chief Judge) and Victor Yim and Jacob Wai 韋達人, LLM, MBA, FRM, FCMA, FIPA, CSDP, MHKCS (Chief Assessor) for their insightful sharing. I, as the Chief Judge of the Award since 2019, have also given a speech to share my experience and encourage the participants to learn more from the process.

Here you go again – The 2022 #FinTech Award of the Hong Kong ICT Awards #HKICTA. It is one of the most recognized, reputable and impactful FinTech awards in Hong Kong and in fact Asia-wide as well. The award winners are the best of the best. It is now open for enrollment till Jun 27, 2022. I am so fortunate and honoured to have been the Chief Judge of this award since 2019.

Congratulations again to the Grand Award winners in the last few years including Tomas Holub #CoverGo (2019), Miles Wen (温豪夫) #FanoLabs (2020) and Calvin Cheng, CFA #Wizpresso (2021). They not just won the award but also transformed the #FinancialServices industry.

No matter whether you are FinTech #startups or financial services incumbents, I encourage you to join this award competition. Winning the award is good but learning together and building connections with our FinTech ecosystem is even more valuable.

Really appreciate the leadership from the award organizer – the Hong Kong Institute of Bankers #HKIB Carrie Leung and Philip Kam, and the effort from their teammates. Thanks in advance to all the judges and accessors.

Glad to have Mr. Clement Lam, CEO of Sun Life Hong Kong, be my guest on the RTHK radio programme – New Management Thinking 管理新思維. Really appreciate Clement’s sharing and time, and my RTHK partner Jenny Lee. We talked about how insurance companies innovate. While we are seeing some progress in this space, there are still quite a few internal and external challenges to making changes and innovations to this legacy industry. What have we discussed? 1. Sun Life has been in Hong Kong for more than a hundred years (130 years to be exact). Clement shared his experience of how to change the culture of a well-established company with many professionals and legacy culture to encourage and embrace innovation. 2. Leveraging and investing in startups (for example, Sun Life invested in Bowtie) and collaborating with the ecosystem are other topics that we discussed. 3. We also talked about opportunities and challenges for insurance companies in Hong Kong and the GBA. 4. We exchanged ideas on acquiring, cultivating and retaining the right talents, especially for young generations. 5. Leveraging slashers in the Gig and Sharing Economy is becoming a trend and more companies are making use of it. And a lot more.. If you would like to learn more from our discussion, please tune in RTHK1 this coming Sun (Apr 17) from 2 pm to 4 pm. https://lnkd.in/f-X8RaN Update: You can listen to it here now https://lnkd.in/gYddhHHW #insurance #insurtech #healthtech #fintech #startup #ecosystem #Bowtie #RTHK #香港電台 #管理新思維 #NewManagementThinking 永明金融 #SunLife #SunLifeHK #GigEconomy #SharingEconomy #GBA #GreaterBayArea CUHK Business SchoolCUHK EMBA#CUHK #CUHKEMBA #EMBA Andrew Chan Pong Yuen, Howard Lam Chun So

As a member of the GS1 HK’s IoT Industry Advisor Council, I am glad to join the 16th Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao IoT Technology Application Summit co-organised by GS1 HK today in 3 locations, mainland, Hong Kong and #Macau, simultaneously.

Appreciate the effort from Anna LinCorinna FungJulian Sin#GS1HK, Kingsley Wong #OGCIOIvan Lam#ASTRI, 龍勝當 #澳門電腦學會,and certainly counterparts in Guangdong. Glad to see many industry experts there as well Andrew Lingwilson chongVincent SoIr Dr Venus LunHarman NgKinsen LeeBryan Peng(彭文俊)Alex Chung 鍾孝揚 and many others.

Great to see the collaboration across 3 regions on IoT applications on various industries. To make our Greater Bay Area or GBA work, we need smart money flow (FinTech and RegTech), smart logistics flow (AIOT) and certainly smart information flow (AI and Big Data). All these flows have to be protected by CyberSecurity and Blockchain.

Thanks for Anna’s leadership and her GS1HK team effort. Look forward to having more collaboration in these areas and contributing more in this alliance across the #GreaterBayArea#GBA in 2022 and beyond.
