Today, I saw another lively side of our CUHK EMBA alumni and students. I used to see my students in classroom with masks or graduation parties with formal suit and dress. Today, we were on basketball court with shorts and Ts. I can see them with no masks. What a contrast! Our alumni and students are really wonderful and beautiful no matter where they are in formal and informal scenarios.

Thank you so much for having me on the court tonight. I enjoyed every minute there to play a bit and watch them to have good games and fun as well. What an amazing evening!

As Covid is leaving us, we can have different f2f ways to reunion with our students and continue to support each other in our journey. See you all on the court next time.

Some of you may say, “Dr. Charm, you are everywhere. What are you doing exactly?” I would like to share my platform model namely #CASE #團學創企 with you. The main purpose of my CASE model is to co-create successful business cases with 4 key interconnected stakeholders in the #ecosystem by making use of innovation and technologies #攜手共創.

They were all strategically articulated around my CASE model. Let me share with you my top 10 posts in terms of impact. Really appreciate your trust & support to me throughout the years.

Today is the Moment of the Truth #MOT for my CUHK EMBA students in my Corporate Innovation and Entrepreneurship course. After 8 days of intensive lectures, case discussion, guest speakers’ sharing, they were presenting their group projects.

The project required my students to study a company’s corporate innovation from 6 different perspectives or dilemmas that they learned from my classes and offsite dinners as well 😄😋.
1. Old Economy vs Digital Economy
2. Customer Centricity vs Innovation
3. Strategy Execution vs Searching for Innovation
4. Internal Innovation vs Open Collaboration
5. Entrepreneurship vs Intrapreneurship
6. Experience Driven vs Data Driven

Really grateful to have such a group of elite executives and professionals in my class with strong learning attitude and positive, open and growth mindset. I can feel and see from the quality, innovativeness and teamwork of their final projects. Thank you so much for their great effort.

Appreciate my guest speakers to spend their weekend time to share their experience with us. We have learnt a lot from their talk, discussion and asking sensible questions. Thanks Jacqueline Chong #AWS #AmazonJens-Peter Brauner, FIET
#SiemensMobility #SiemensRyan Lai #foodpanda, and Austin R. Bryan, #CLP. Their sharing had really made a huge difference. Thank you.

Special thanks to the feedback from my last year’s CUHK EMBA2022 students as they requested the school to lengthen this course from 1.5 credit to 3.0 credit so that I can have more time to share my experience and discuss content more thoroughly with my students this year. It was indeed much more fruitful. Really thankful to like Anita ChanChris SoRicky LeeHans Till (CUHK Executive MBA, PMP)Daniel Ching and many others. It has been a year since they presented their final project. https://lnkd.in/gpHhgZS3

I enjoyed a lot with my students in this journey of learning. Wish my sharing can further nurture and more importantly empower them to be innovative leaders in their respective industries and professions. My last advice for them, “What should we do differently from yesterday so we can survive today (and perhaps tomorrow)”. Keep it up, team.

After almost 3 years of the Covid, our lives are gradually back to normal, at least, close to it. I am so grateful that I could meet with my EMBA students not only f2f in class (with masks), but also in causal dinners (without masks and with smiles) as well. I had a few dinners with different teams in my Corporate Innovation course in the last few weeks. Apart from discussing about innovation and technology, we talked about almost everything. I have a very good diversity in my class this year with business owners, corporate leaders from different industries, entrepreneurs and professionals like doctors, lawyers, accountants and engineers. That is an excellent mix to learn innovation. Really enjoyed our gatherings and understood a lot more about their lives and works. We all learned a lot more than in the classrooms. What a class! What a memory! Thanks to my fellow students. Appreciate Dop SunRachel Yu and Vincent Wong https://lnkd.in/gdH2YRny and a few other fellow students to organize such great gatherings. Hope the Covid is really getting away from us and we all can have more personal touch. It really matters and technology simply cannot replace it.

What a week for me last week! I shared my experience on corporate innovation and entrepreneurship with my EMBA, MBA and then Mini-MBA students in a week. That was a very packed but very fruitful and meaningful week for me.

Let me share a bit more on my Mini-MBA class as it was interesting. Our Mini-MBA programme is a series of one-day modules for business executives professionals and entrepreneurs to upskill themselves under their busy schedule. Our main theme is Innovative Leadership. My class this year had a very good mix of executives and professionals from commercial and public sectors like #HKHA Hong Kong Hospital Authority, entrepreneurs from startups like #Aerosim #BioMed, and team leaders from #HKSTP. We mixed them up for class exercises and discussion. That indeed was the best way to learn innovation as diversity is a key success factor for great innovation. Appreciate their active participation and sharing thoughts. Great class! Also, big thank to HKSTP Garland Chow and Gallen Leung to encourage amd support their #startups to join this programme.

Just finished another two fruitful days with my CUHK EMBA students. I continued to talk about corporate innovation. Appreciate Ryan Lai#foodpanda to join us in the weekend and share his corporate innnovation and entrepreneurship experience with us. It was a fruitful and insightful session. Thanks Ryan.

I met Ryan when he was running his startup and now he is heading the foodpanda Hong Kong. He is bringing in his entrepreneurial experience to run foodpanda. We can all see the great achievements of Ryan and his company in the last few years.

It is often hard to balance execution and innovation. From Ryan, we all learnt a lot how to acheive results and at the same time to keep innovating like an enterprenur.

We have discussed a few key questions for the success of corporate innovation. Thanks my good students like Edmund ChanDop Sun to ask sensible questions as well.
1. What can corporates learn from the Startup Cycle?
2. How to empower staff to innovate with the support from experienced leaders and corporate resources?
3. How to prioritize and decide when and how to start a new business?

My goal is to empower my EMBA students to be entrepreneurial leaders to manage and grow their businesses. Will continue this mission in my journey of nurturing more future elite leaders for our society.

Grateful to have Dr. Victor Ng to co-deliver our joint AI for Financial Services course to ICBC (Asia) at CUHK today. Really appreciate the full-day presence of Miss Gao, the Chairman and Executive Director of ICBC(Asia) together with their senior management. That was an excellent Lead-by-Example for all leaders. If you would like to cultivate and change your colleagues, you demonstrate it first. Really appreciate it, Miss Gao.

Dr. Ng and I have designed a Data Literacy Empowerment Programme #DLEP to empower all levels of colleagues in organizations to speak data. Today, I shared about how AI applies to financial services with real cases and examples worldwide while Dr. Ng cultivated the participants on data culture and mindset through experiential exercises. We have been doing it for many enterprises especially banks. What a practical combination to illustrate how leading enterprise is making good use of data to win the hearts of their customers. To know more about DLEP, please visit OpenCertHub Academy www.ochacademy.com.

The most impressive and rewarding part for me and Dr. Ng was the sharing from our students about their findings and suggestions from their team exercises. After we have shared our experiences, our students not only digested the key points well, but also come up with solid suggestions to make changes in ICBC to empower their colleagues to be citizen data scientists and data citizens. More importantly, their own data mindset has changed and they appreciate even more to use data to solve problems. Thanks to all for your effort. Congratulations and welcome aboard to the DLEP journey.

Another great cohort of CUHK EMBA has just started. Welcome to all elite leaders, executives and professionals to join our EMBA Class of 2024.

All of our students had an excellent start in our CUHK EMBA Residence Week. We can see another group of passionate and bright minds this year. This group is also a real demonstration of diversity in our EMBA programme in terms of gender, nationality, industry, profession and character as well.

Thanks to the leadership from Professor Pong Yuen, Howard Lam, and my colleagues Dominic ChanChun So and many others behind the scene, to make this week a fruitful and impactful one to everyone.

Heartfelt thank to our master professor and mentor Professor Andrew Chan and our elite alumnus Cally Chan, and Dr. Gilbert Cheung to share their knowledge and experience with us. Appreciate it.

Here you go for our third Mastermind forum this year for Sun Life Hong Kong and its financial advisors. The main theme this time was “Everyone Speaks Data” or “全民「講」數”。The last 2 Mastermind forums can be reviewed here:
https://lnkd.in/g_dAewVp
https://lnkd.in/gnuE3yEf

We aim to inspire and encourage Sun Life colleagues and ecosystem to co-create values for their customers with data. Good panel discussion as well as interaction with the f2f and online audiences.

I am grateful to have experienced AI and data corporate leaders, entrepreneurs and consultants in town as my panel speakers, including Patrick Khong #HASEJacob Wai, FRM, FFA FIPA, FCMA, CSDP, MHKCS, LLM, MBA #DeloitteCalvin Cheng, CFA #Wizpresso and certainly our host Alex Wong #Sunlife. Really appreciate their insightful sharing. Thanks to SunLife Clement Lam Alice ChuckShirley Mak, the supporting team and my CUHK teammates today.

It takes not only IT team effort but also collaboration with data-literate colleagues at all business levels. Senior management’s determination on nurturing a data culture is very important but it is not enough. Pervasive use of data across the enterprise is the key for success. To unlock the values of data, not only IT and Data teams need to do a good job, all others need to see the values of data in their daily jobs and use data as their business language every day.

Hang Seng Bank is a great example and one of the pioneers in Hong Kong to go along this direction. Patrick is leading this change and empowering majority of their workforce on data literacy. They are also nurturing a group of citizen data scientists in different units to act as culture carrier to build, empower and sustain data culture. More here https://lnkd.in/g3PXKFYS.

Jacob and Calvin shared practical approaches to achieve this goal. Alex has also started this journey at Sun Life HK. This direction also aligns well with my vision and experience. My teammates from OpenCertHub Academy and CUHK are supporting quite a few companies in Hong Kong, including Hang Seng Bank, to empower their staff to nurture data culture, mindset and skills. To know more about our Data Literacy Empowerment Programme #DLEP, please check it out here www.ochacademy.com

Look forward to empowering more companies and talents to make smart use of data everyday.

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.
