How should we leverage #DigitalTransformation to capture the opportunities in the 80+ million people #GBA market? Glad to have a chance to discuss this theme with influential leaders in Hong Kong. It included
1. Professor Andrew Chan, President of the #GBABusinessSchool
2. Edmond Lai, Chief Digital Officer of #HKPC
3. Andrew Ling, Director of Value Advisory, #SAPHK
Thanks for #SAP and #HKET to organize such a great forum. Appreciate the effort from Sandy Yu, Helen Lam and many other SAP and HKET colleagues.
I also shared my experience as one of the judges for the 2021 Digital Transformation Awards #DinggeAwards #鼎革獎 where I witnessesed and learnt from many innovative and impactful digital transformation real-life cases implemented by enterprises from mainland China, Hong Kong and Taiwan. The Awards is an annual competition organized by #HarvardBusinessReview, #HBR, #TsinghuaUniversity and #SAP. Hong Kong started participating this competition first time in 2021.
Here is the article from HKET which summarized the key takeaways.

Really grateful to have an opportunity to discuss with GBA and digitalization experts in Hong Kong as well as mainland China. Thanks for #SAP #HKET #HKPC #GBABusinessSchool jointly organized it.
In particular, I was really pleased that we had my mentoring professor Andrew Chan, the President of the #GBA Business School, to share his views on the development of the GBA region.
Then, we had a panel on #DigitalTransformation in the context of the GBA with 2 of my friends. I firstly talked about the key success factors of digital transformation where customer centricity was the key. Andrew Ling from #SAP shared his experience to manage supply chain under uncertainty. Edmond Lai from #HKPC went through a few examples how #SMEs in Hong Kong to leverage on technologies to seize opportunities and manage challenges in these few years including the pandemic time.
Two leading enterprises from the mainland, #Bosch (China) Investment Ltd. and #Terminexus (Shanghai) Co. Ltd. also shared their digital transformation experience. They were the winners of the Digital Transformation Awards #鼎革獎。
The award aims to encourage companies in the mainland and Hong Kong to learn from each other on their digital transformation journey.

The 3rd Annual Digital Transformation Award called #鼎革奖 #Dingge is open for application. It is organized by #HarvardBusinessReview #HBR, #TsinghuaUniversity #清华大学 Institute for Global Industry #IGI, and #SAP.
For the first 2 years, the Award only accepted applications from mainland #China. Great companies from different industries joined and shared their #DigitalTransformation experience.
The good news is that it will accept applications from #HongKong and #Taiwan this year. For Hong Kong companies, it is a good platform to learn more about how Chinese and multinational companies have been doing digital transformation in the mainland. It is also a great opportunity to build the brands and networks of the participating HK companies in the mainland market.
I am so gratitude and honoured that I will be representing Hong Kong to be one of the judges for this award. I encourage more Hong Kong companies to apply for this award to share our experience and learn more from others.
Please find out more and apply for this award on or before Aug 31, 2021. See you there.
Leaders in Hong Kong shared experience on how corporates can innovate in this challenging time & seize the opportunities in the #DigitalEconomy. It was a fireside chat moderated by Patrick S Lee & I in the launch of Corporate Innovation Index program organized by #CUHK & #HKGCC.
1. Corporate innovation is about margin, sustainability & opportunities.
2. Engaging new generation is important for corporate innovation. Reverse mentorship is very effective to empower senior management on innovation.
3. The more challenging time we are in, more innovation we need (not an excuse to give up the priority of innovation)
4. Passion is a key for driving innovation
5. CEO cannot delegate innovation. He or she has to drive it & align with the company’s strategy with it. Bottom up is as equally important as top down.
Grateful to have all these leaders in innovation & technology ecosystem to join the forum and appreciate their active participation. Francis Ngai #IBM, Andrew Ling #SAP, Eugene Hsia #HKSTP, Stella Kwan #Cyberport, Eunice Chan #HangSengBank, Raymond Cheng former C-suite #HSBC, Matthew Chan
#JardineRestaurantGroup, Larry Poon #CUHK & more.
We look forward to collaborating with all to deliver our Corporate Innovation Index for Hong Kong.
