What a morning with old and new friends in the Peak after having lots of moon cakes last night. I went up early so I could enjoy my coffee and breakfast in the Pacific Coffee shop with the best bird’s eye view of Hong Kong. I took a picture with the new #peaktram as well. Met a beautiful cat to walk along with us. Yes, it was a #cat not a dog. What a lovely trip!

Really happy to see my mentor Dr. George Lam and many good friends again there. Thanks Fonia Wong 黃仰芳Alex Au and their #HKDAS teammates to organize this hiking gathering. We had veterans and #GenZ talents on #innovation and #technology, especially #DigitalAsset#MetaVerse#FinTech and #AI, joined the exercise today.

#HKDAS Hong Kong Digital Asset Society is a new organization to bring those who are interested in Digital Asset together to innovate and shape the future of this field in Hong Kong. So honoured to be engaged as one of their industry advisors to contribute and learn more about this emerging industry.

Finally completed the “Data Monetization Strategy: Creating Value Through Data” program organized by MIT Sloan School of Management 美國麻省理工大學斯隆商學院. It was one of the best data strategy programs in the recent few years. Even I have solid experience and background on AI and Big Data, I found that this program provides very relevant practices to monetize our data asset.

Big thanks to Dr. Barb Wixom‘s sharing and effort to put together this insightful program for us. My classmates or learning partners were from all over the world but we have a common goal to find the best way to monetize data. We formed a cross-country, cross-company and cross-function community and had lots of forums in the program to exchange views on relevant topics. That was one of the best parts in the program.

The course was not that easy as we might think of. It took me a few months to go through a series of modules and assignments. However, it is worth spending effort on this course out of my already-packed schedule.

The program had quite strict requirement to grant the certification to the participants and really tested my knowledge and persistence. My drive is that we are not just learning a new technology. To stay relevant in today’s digitally-disruptive world, we got to have the mindset to keep learning and innovating. Grateful that I did it and was granted the certificate.

My key takeaway is that it takes more than data and technology to monetize data effectively. Democratizing data literacy to everyone at all business levels and empowering them with data mindset are critical for data monetization success. That is what my team and I at OpenCertHub Academy have been empowering quite a few enterprises in Asia to do so.

If you would like to know more about this MIT program, here is a good video for it https://lnkd.in/gVZcdnuq

Enjoy learning and innovating!

Glad to sit down and have a chance to chat with Simon Chan, the new Chairman of Hong Kong #Cyberport. Simon is an experienced banker and has been contributing to the #innovation and #technology#ecosystem in public and private sectors for decades.

We explored different strategies and best practices in Hong Kong and worldwide innovation and technology hubs. More importantly, we shared how to empower our current and future #startups and #entrepreneurs.

We discussed the trends of #FinTech#MetaVerse#AI#BigData#DigitalTransformation for traditional enterprises and more. I also shard my book #數碼力大提升 with him. It was fruitful and insightful discussion.

Thanks Simon. We look forward to seeing more impactful initiatives from Cyberport to Hong Kong with your leadership. Will be there to collaborate and support.

Glad to catch up with Cally Chan GM, #Microsoft Hong Kong, to exchange ideas on the innovation and technology ecosystem and how we can collaborate to co-contribute more to Hong Kong. It was a meaningful discussion. Appreciate that, Cally.

Cally and I have things crossing over each other. Cally is one of our elite #CUHK#EMBA alumni and I am now a professor and associate director of our EMBA programme in CUHK. We are both very passionate in enpowering the #innovation and #technology ecosystem, in particular #startups and #entrepreneurs, in Hong Kong. Will continue to co-creating values for the ecosystem.

Congratulations to all the winners of the Digital Transformation of the Year Award of the 2022 Business GoVirtual Expo and Conference. Here are the awardees this year:

In particular, I was so glad to see Serena Pau from #CLP again and happy for her to win the award. She was one of the elite entrepreneurs with us at Cyberport and is now a brilliant intrapreneur at CLP. That is exactly what I am encouraging more corporates to have entrepreneurs to join them. It will bring their entrepreneurship experience, passion and innovative mindset to the companies. That is what corporates badly need. Well done, Austin R. Bryan,.

Thank you so much for Li Culsin from Baobab Tree Event and wilson chong of IoT HK Association to invite me as the Chairman of this award and an advisor for the conference. Happy to see so many friends f2f over the three days in the conference.

The conference lasted for 3 days and kicked off by the GOH, Professor Sun Dong, Secretary of Innovation, Technology and Industry Bureau ITIB, HKSAR Government. Glad to have his support to us. I was impressed by his sincere chats with many of us in the conference. Appreciate Culsin and her teammates to make this happened.

It was my first-time visit to the Hong Kong Observatory 香港天文台 #HKO headquarters in TST yesterday. It is on the top of a small mountain in the busy TST district. I can see the advanced devices and technologies as well as the 130+ years of legacy in the beautiful and historical buildings there. What a contrast and learning for this trip of mine!

I was invited to share my experience on how to collaborate with the #innovation and #technology #ecosystem to co-create values for customers and more importantly for citizens in Hong Kong. In fact, HKO has been good at making use of science and technologies but also putting emphasis on serving our citizens. I particularly appreciate their mission on “Innovate with Science, Serve with Heart” https://lnkd.in/d9XBB65J. I am impressed by what they have been doing for our citizens. Thank you.

I have shared how we can make use of data to understand the voice of our citizens and the importance of everyone in HKO to speak the language of data so they can solve the pain points of our citizens even better. Through most of the HKO colleagues are engineering background, they also recognized and agreed enhancing their data literacy with right data mindset and skills to understand citizens and solve customers pain points are very crucial for their success.

Thank you so much for Dr. Cheng, Director of HKO, his top management and staff participating in my sharing. In particular, thanks for their meaningful questions and ideas exchanges as well. Appreciate Justine Tang and #PolyU Research Institute for AI of Things #RIAoT to facilitate this sharing session.

Learned a lot today from the #MetaVerse practitioners in town in the 2nd forum of our “All About MetaVerse Series”. The main theme today was MetaVerse Strategies for #Brands#SMEs and #Entrepreneurs. I am so grateful to be the moderator of this series. More episodes will come shortly. Stay tuned with HKPC #Innopreneur vForum. My post on the 1st episode of this series can be found here. https://lnkd.in/dusKJYeA

Big thanks to our guest speakers Lorraine Cheung #YahooChris Wang #AWSKevin K T Lee #Redspots and Henry Chu #PillnPillow. Two of them are entrepreneurs and the other two are platform providers. That enabled us to discuss this topic from a more balanced perspective.

We discussed from MetaVerse opportunities, challenges to technologies, platforms, talents requirement and future skills. MetaVerse is not a hype but the direction is still being shaped. It is very early so everyone gets a chance but we need to keep learning and be open minded.

In essence, there are a few things that we need to strike a balance in order to make the best out of this unprecdented opportunity for the decade – MetaVerse.

1. The next 5 to 10 years will have lots of opportunities. By 2030, the market is going to reach 5 trillion USD globally. At same time, lots of regulations and governance needed to be in place to balance the opportunities and potential problems.

2. We have more opportunities from scalability to the global markets but at the same time competitions from global players.

3. New digital skills will be required but soft skills, like problem solving, communication, project management are equally important.

4. #Data analytics, #MachineLearning and #AI are crucial now and even more pivotal in the MetaVerse for customer experience and engagement.

5. SMEs are lack of resources and talents but lots of good partners in the MetaVerse ecosystem that they can leverage on.

6. Keep trying and learning to get started but be aware of the risks like losing Crypto from your hot wallets.

Lots more to come. See you in our 3rd MetaVerse episode soon. Have a good ride in your MetaVerse journey.

Thanks to Karen F.Elly Yip and their teammates #HKPCDr. Angus Ho #HKIM and Annie Yeung #Vootprint for their great effort to make this forum happened.

Remember my years in the US, I always got the fortune cookies from the local Chinese restaurants. Today, I got one in one of the best restaurants in Hong Kong. More importantly, it has further inspired me the importance of #DREAM.

The message inside my fortune cookies said, “In dreams and in life, nothing is impossible.”

I hope many of you much younger than me to keep on chasing your dreams especially in the #innovation and #technology ecosystem. Tons of opportunities for you and the sky is the only limit. #GOGOX has just listed in the Hong Kong main board. Their founders started with only HK$20K. It was a miracle and a legend but the power of dreams of the #founders and #entrepreneurs did matter a lot.

Keep it going. Many of the #Unicorns and even #Decacorns are yet to come.
