It was my first time to have an avatar in my panel. Can you find him in the photo? His name is “Inno”. What a way to discuss about the Next Big Thing – #MetaVerse in our Innopreneurs eForum today! Thanks for Karen F.Elly Yip and their teammates from #HKPC and Dr. Angus Ho and his teammates from HK Institute of Marketing #HKIM to make all these happened.

Certainly, the core team in our panel was the experts on MetaVerse including Chris So#AWSWilly Wong#EYSam Ngan#Popsible and Rex Wong Hong Kong Blockchain Industry Association. Over 400 audiences (online) mainly #SMEs joined this forum. It demonstrated that MetaVerse excited not only large companies, startups and investors, but also #SMEs. Appreciate the valuable sharing from all of the guest speakers in my panel.

We explored from what MetaVerse is to applications, business models and underlying technologies like #Web3#NFT#Blockchain#Cryptocurrency#VR#Cloud and more. We also talked about the roles of major stakeholders in the MetaVerse #ecosystem.

It is only the beginning of our Innopreneurs MetaVerse Series. Stay tuned for the rest of the series in the next few months. Check out HKPC 香港生產力促進局 website for more https://lnkd.in/gY57pzgW

We had a very fruitful discussion with #eCommerce leaders and #entrepreneurs today. It is a part of the #Innopreneur Forum series organized by #HKPC. The Innopreneur Network aims to connect #SMEs with innovators and practitioners.

The main theme this time was “Successful eCommerce Strategies in the New Normal”. I have moderated 2 online discussion panels with the following guests.

To deliver successful eCommerce, there are quite a few challenges that we need to overcome like #Marketing#O2O integration, #Logistics#Warehousing#CrossBorder#Cost#Speed#DataAnalytics#DataPrivacy#DigitalReadiness#Financing#CashFlow and more.

Fortunately, we have built a vibrant eCommerce #ecosystem in Hong Kong. Merchants and SMEs can focus on marketing and #innovation. For the rest of these challenges, they can leverage the respective partners in the ecosystem. In the last 6 years, Hong Kong has cultivated 4,000+ #startups and 10+ #unicorns. They have been making pivotal impact and significant contribution to our society in this chaotic pandemic period.

After all, building trust among stakeholders in the ecosystem is key for success. We all learned a lot from the guest speakers. If you would like to watch the replay, please visit this webpage in a few days: https://lnkd.in/gbf7KMRV

Thanks 香港生產力促進局 #HKPCAcademy#HKPCInnoSpace#SMEOneKaren F.Elly YipDAPHNE HO and many unsung heros behind the scene for organizing it. Also, appreciate all supporting organizations.

How the key #eCommerce service providers and #startups in Hong Kong #innovation and #technology #ecosystem have been helping #SME not just tackle the challenges in the Covid but also seize new business opportunities?

The new issue (Mar 2022) of the #Bloomberg Businessweek Hong Kong/Taiwan have looked at this hot theme. They have interviewed a few key eCommerce leaders and myself. If you want to know more, here is the link.

The 2nd episode of our #ToaSirDataTalk#ToaSir講數 interview series is now ready to watch. Our guest speaker this time was Mr. Daniel Kwong, the former Chief Information and Innovation Officer of #CITIC#Telecom.

Daniel shared practical tips and examples to get the most out of data for his company. We also discussed how to acquire, train and engage data scientists. In addition, Daniel shared how to nurture a data culture in his company to get non-IT colleagues across business and operation units to make use of data to seize revenue opportunities and enhance operation efficiency.

Really learned a lot from Daniel. Appreciate his sharing and thank you. That is the key objective of our programme “Toa Sir Data Talk” i.e. invite experienced business and data leaders to share their industry best practices and data strategy on making use of data in their businesses and operations.
