The East Meets The West. Our #CUHKEMBA fellow students really experienced it in the last few weekends. Morning on digital and afternoon on Chinese wisdom.
I taught about corporate innovation and digital strategy. Most of today’s digital innovation and strategy wisdom and experience were rooted mainly from the US. Professor Sin #冼日明 taught about traditional Chinese wisdom #易經 that was originated from China. That’s the best of Hong Kong where we can make use of the best wisdom of both worlds. We have been doing our best to bring out the synergistic power of the East and the West.
Thanks for Professor Andrew Chan and Pong Yuen, Howard Lam of #CUHK #CUHKEMBA CUHK Business School CUHK EMBA to make these happened from the very beginning till now.
More details about the classes just over the last few weekends can be found here. Hope to see you soon in our classes and/or other occasions in our ecosystem.
Just finished a 2 days intensive class on “Strategic Management * Digital Transformation” for a group of elite executives in mainland China. Really appreciate their great learning attitude.
In particular, the excellent quote that one of my students showed in her photo – “今天不学习，明天变垃圾”. It means that, “If we don’t learn today, we will become garbage tomorrow.”
Though I had to conduct the class on Zoom from Hong Kong, all my students gathered physically in Shenzhen and engaged well with me. It worked fine and was much better for individual student to login in Zoom separately. You may want to try this setting.
Excellent teaching and learning experience in this weekend. Thank you so much for my students’ active participation and the amazing technologies.
What a rewarding 4 days together with my #CUHK #EMBA students! I took them through a very timely and critical intensive training on #innovation #strategy & #management. Our students are all senior executives from mainland #China including traditional companies and tech giants.
I have invited 4 guest speakers to share their corporate innovation experience with us. Thanks Eric Hui #ZurichInsurance, Charles Lam #Fubon, Akina Ho #GreatEagle and Damien Ko #G2000. Their sharings were insightful & practical. We all learned a lot from them. Thank you.
I used a few inspirational cases as the core for my class, such as, #Disney, #Netflix, #Marriott, #Airbnb, #Adobe, #PingAn, #Haier, #Philips, #Samsung, #Booking.com, #3M, #Amazon, #Alibaba, #Advantech, #Walesgreen, etc.
Though we had to use Zoom for the training, the class participation from our students on our case discussion was no less than a #f2f class. Really impressed by the quality of my students’ questions, analysis, debates & suggestions. Thank you.
My students had a nice dinner in Shenzhen with lots of joy after the 4 days class. They were well deserved it. Hope to join them next time when there is no quarantine needed.
Happy Father’s Day for everyone!

In today’s #DigitalEconomy, executives & professionals have a sense of urgency to master “The Power Duo of AI & Big Data”. In the last 2 days, I delivered an executive class on this. I am so grateful to have a class of highly-engaged students across industries. We had fruitful discussion on the opportunities & challenges of #AI & #BigData. Thanks to my fellow students.
My career journey has been highly related to data from my 1st job in #SiliconValley #Informix #RDBMS to later #BI, #DW #BigData & #AI. My key takeaway from this journey is not just technology but also how to make use of data to create value for our customers & capture value for our companies.
The students learned about applications & technologies of AI, #MachineLearning & Big Data through cases #Airbnb, #StitchFix #Lemonade #SquirrelAI #Linkedin #Uber #MasterCard.
Big thanks to Jade Tin Hei Lee from #ChowTaiFook and Calvin Cheng, CFA from #Wizpresso to share their experience with our students from a traditional company and a startup perspective respectively.
The Power Duo of AI & Big Data is a module of #CUHK #Digital #Leadership Series Program. #Platform #Strategy is another module. We launched it a few weeks ago as well.
“Banking is necessary but banks are not” ( quote from Bill Gates ) is not just applied for the incumbents in banking industry but all leaders in traditional industries. Traditional companies are facing unprecedented challenges from 4 major forces in the Digital Economy. Many of them will not survive if they don’t act now & don’t do it right. Last week in Shanghai, I have shared my experience gained from consulting large incumbents & cultivating innovative startups. We talked about these 4 key types of competitors for traditional companies: 1. Tech Giants Amazon Alibaba 2. Unicorns Gogovan Klook 3. Traditional companies from other industries with great digital capabilities to cross over to your industry Volkswagon getting into insurance 4. Companies in your same industry but with better digital capabilities than you Strategy that we learned from Business School, MBA and EMBA still matters but may not be good enough to empower leaders to win & even survive in the Digital Age. We talked about how to formulate Digital Strategy, cultivate a Digital Workforce & work with Digital Colleague around us. More importantly, how to innovate & collaborate with startups. Will deliver this talk in Tsingtao, Taiwan, Malaysia & more Asia’s cities in the next few months. CU.
