Many corporations have noticed the importance of Data, Big Data AI & aggressively kick-started its Digital Transformation journey. However, successful Digital Transformation involves far more than IT or DT (Data Technology) tasks, it calls for company-wide full participation of all departments. In any change management process, talent is always the key.

As such, top management including CEO, CTO, CIO, CDO, COO, CFO, CMO, HRBP, etc. will need to co-design digital transformation strategy, set up of organization structure, develop Data Literacy culture within the company, build up a strong data-literated team from recruitment, training & reskilling current staff, etc.

It is my pleasure to deliver an information session on Apr 17 for AmCham Shanghai to help their members in China to get the latest information on the critical keys & considerations for corporations conducting Digital Transformation. Thanks for the arrangement from Kornerstone & OpenCertHub in Shanghai.

Two of the world’s top business cities,  HongKong and Shanghai have a lot of things similar and in common. They are both strong in FinancialServices & play a pivotal role in the global financial services market.

It was my pleasure to join a forum on “Cultivating Data Talents in Financial Services 打造金融数据人才” in Shanghai. I shared the global trend on FinTech & BigData and discussed with experts from Shanghai financial services industry in a panel. Thanks for the valuable sharing from the speakers from Shanghai University of Finance and Economics, China Construction Bank, East West Bank, Deutsche Bank. I learned a lot from them.

The forum also launched a cooperation for Hong Kong & Shanghai to join hands to reskill FinancialServices leaders & practitioners in the mainland China with BigData and AI competence. OpenCertHub from Hong Kong is a certification & an examination platform for AI & Big Data talents while 鴻覽金融研究院 from Shanghai is a leading training institute specialized in financial services training. Together, we launched a new series of training programs to help financial services get ready for the AI Era.
