Hong Kong Productivity Council held its first “Future of Work & Tech Experience Day” yesterday. Excellent panel discussion on the future of work & talents moderated by Eliza Ng #HKPC. Panelists included Jeff Wong #LinkedInLancy Chui #ManpowerAda Ng #MicrosoftFlorence Chow #HKT and Karen F. HKPC. https://lnkd.in/gN8ntdk

The event also announced the results of “The Future of Work & Skills Survey” jointly conducted by HKPC & #QuokkaHR this year.

One key finding from the report is that the top five digital skills are #BigData#CloudComputing#ArtificialIntelligence#DigitalMarketing & #eCommerce. That is in line with what we have seen in the market.

Marius ChowDAVID Chung Tai-Wai and I were on the other panel to talk about a series of new training programmes to #reskill and #upskill Hong Kong talents on these required future skills in the digital age. These training programs are all supported and subsidized by government funding.

One of the new programmes that I designed together with HKPC is to empower Hong Kong #SMEs & #Startups to seize the emerging opportunities in #ASEAN markets such as #Vietnam#Indonesia#Thailand#Malaysia#Singapore, etc. Stay tuned.

Several key drivers of data innovation & culture for their organizations were in my f2f offline panel yesterday. Heartfelt thank to Edwin Hui #AccentureBessie Chong #EsquelSusanna Chiu #BonjourMaggie Yung #DBS.

#DataLiteracy
Here are my key takeaways:

1. The mindset of the top management on the urgency of empowering every employee is critical for #DigitalTransformation. DBS has trained >50% of their employees on data literacy with their CEO’s support.

2. AI not just automates our tasks but also releases us from tedious & dangerous tasks. Manufacturers like Esquel has made use of #data & #AI to make their staff happier, healthier & more efficient.

3. Start with the colleagues in key departments who are more reluctant to change & help them solve their problems using data. It will drive the company to become data driven.

4. Not just training is needed but also internal competition, collaboration with external #ecosystem, mixing colleagues from different units #Squad to do data projects, recognition, are important for culture & mindset change.

5. #Reskill & #Upskill colleagues on data literacy should be on the top priority for #HR to empower their colleagues in the #DigitalEconomy.

Thanks Catherine Chan #Kornerstone Andy Kwok #OpenCertHub to organize the forum.

“The Power Duo of AI and Big Data” is one of my favorite courses in our #CUHK Digital Leadership Series for Executives. In the last 2 days, I have delivered this class to the #ChiyuBank #集友銀行 in Hong Kong & Xiamen. Thanks for Michael Chan, Executive Director of the Chiyu Bank, to kickoff the class & his support.

I have shared my #BigData & #AI experience from #MachineLearning #Algorithms #DataLiteracy concepts to innovative applications in #FinancialServices #FinTech & #ResponsibleAI. Apart from lectures, case studies & group discussions, I have invited 2 AI experts to share their experience. My heartfelt thanks to my guest speakers Calvin Cheng, CFA from Wizpresso & Daniel Ling from OneConnect Financial Technology.

I encouraged more interaction from my students in the class. The most engaged students were given a copy of my book #數碼力大提升 with my signature and personalized message. Congratulations to 3 winners today.

Grateful that more and more enterprises and their executives are taking the courses in our #DigitalLeadershipSeries for executives to empower & #reskill themselves to be competitive & relevant in the #DigitalEconomy.

“Every leader needs to be a #DigitalLeader in the #DigitalEconomy.” #Digital is not just an enabler for business but also a #GameChanger for almost all industries. To stay competitive and relevant, every executive and professional need to #reskill and #upskill on their digital leadership instead of leaving it to just #IT colleagues.

A team of well-experienced digital practitioners, innovative entrepreneurs & I, together with my #CUHK teammates, have designed a “Digital Leadership Series for Executives” programme to empower today’s leaders from traditional industries with digital #Mindset#Capability & #DigitalWorkforce management.

The series include 8 two-day modules with lectures, cases, discussions, guests sharing & hands-on workshops. Participants can take one to all of these modules. Topic ranges from #DesignThinking #DigitalMarketing #CustomerEngagement #CorporateInnovation #Entrepreneurship #Agile Development #AI #BigData #Blockchain #Platform.

Good news is that most of these modules are eligible for the #RTTP https://lnkd.in/gwwfXHT funding from the government.

#BillGates said, “Banking is necessary, banks are not”. Have we thought about “Accounting is necessary, accountants are not”?

#Accounting#Auditing and #Finance professionals are used to have a peace of mind in earning secured income and having great prosperity. However, another #NewNORMAL has come to them in this decade and they have to respond well to keep flourishing for their career.

While these professions are still very important to us, many of them are in high risks of losing their jobs to #AI and #BigData in this decade.

According to PWC, 30% of our current jobs will be automated by AI by 2030. Accounting and Finance is ranked as the top tier of the list. How should the professionals and students in the profession prepare themselves for this tsunami? The answer is #DataLiteracy.

On behalf of #OpenCertHub, I will share our view on this hot topic together with #EY and #Kornerstone in Shanghai on Jan 14, 2021. Thanks to the support from Hong Kong Institute of Certified Public Accountants. If you are interested, just scan the QR code below or contact #HKiCPA #HongKong or #Shanghai for more information.

ASEAN countries are ramping up to seize the AI and BigData opportunities. For instance, according to a latest IDC report, AI will nearly DOUBLE the rate of INNOVATION in MALAYSIA by 2021. https://lnkd.in/fm_kaXS.  A strong demand of AI and Big Data technical and business talents are there in ASEAN.  OpenCertHub www.opencerthub.com has launched its partnership program in  KL on Sep 24,  2019 to collaborate with training institutes, universities, consulting firms, government agencies, recruitment firms, etc., to authenticate and certify AI and Big Data talents. We received great responses from Malaysia’s AI and Big Data ecosystem and have already moved forward with key partners in KL. Special thanks to MD of  KnowledgeSociety Selva Nagappan, Senior Data Scientist of MDEC ADAX Dr. Poo Kuan Hoong, GAIN Global AI Network in Malaysia and Pauline Goh from InvestKL for their support. We are also working on other ASEAN countries especially Singapore , Thailandand Vietnam. If you were in the AI and Big Data ecosystem of these countries, we are happy to collaborate with you. Cheers.

Apart from GreaterBayArea, SouthEastAsia is another uprising region in the vibrant Asia. We are both ramping up our talents to prepare for AI & BigData Era. The Mission of OpenCertHub is to democratize data literacy and capabilities to everyone so that we are ready to take up new jobs created by AI instead of being replaced. We need not just DataScientist but also CitizenDataScientist. “Reskill Everyone for the Unprecedented DataEconomy” is the main theme of our upcoming workshop in KualaLumpur Malaysia on Sep 24 pm. It is our honour to co-organize it with GAIN Global Artificial Intelligence Network in Malaysia. It is a conjunction with the NextBigTech Asia 2019 conference organized by MDEC in KL last week. https://lnkd.in/frzHw3n We welcome partners and enterprises to join us to explore how we can collaborate to furthur strengthen the Data Economy in Malaysia.
