Congratulations to all the winners of the Best HR Awards 2022 organized by CTGoodJobs. Grateful being one of the judges and speakers for the Awards again. My OpenCertHub Academy team fully supported the ceremony this year. Thanks Vivienne WongShirley Pi, William Ho, Reo Lam and their teammates to organize such a great award ceremony. We enjoyed our great collaboration and teamwork with the CTGoodJobs team.

I particularly appreciate this Awards because it has pioneered quite a few award categories to encourage HR leaders to cultivate digital transformation and innovation initiatives and talent to their organizations.

In this year, Data Literacy Association #DaLa www.DaLaHK.org , which was founded by a number of data leaders and I to nurture data culture in large to small organizations, jointly with CTGoodJobs created a new category called Data Literacy Award. It aims to encourage establishing data culture and enabling pervasive use of data in organizations to unleash the power of data to every employee. Congratulations to The Bank of East Asia #BEA to receive the 1st ever Grand Award of this category in Hong Kong. Really appreciate the great team effort from their FinTech, Data and Training and Development teams. Congratulations Stephen L. Kenny Au, and Doris Tong. My OpenCertHub teammates are so fortune to collaborate with the BEA team to empower their colleagues at all levels of the bank to speak the language of data.

Also happy for many HR leaders in town like Fanny Chan from China Everbright Bank Hong Kong #CEBHKEliza Ng #HKPCEdmund Lam #FubonBankDerek Wu #LKK, and many others for their amazing achievement. Also good to see young leaders like CY Chan #ECHealthCareBobo WongMichelle Chan #MicrosoftMingo Tsang #Bowtie and more. They are with bright minds and our future as well.

As I mentioned in my talk on “Data Literacy – Build Future-proof Workforce with Second Business Language”, Digital Transformation not only needs digital experts but also HR experts as change management and culture play a pivot role in its success. Teamwork between digital teammates and HR teammates are super important. Had a very good chat with Kandy Lui #iHRM and learnt a lot from her on the HR profession and it’s latest development. Also learnt from José Carlos Bezanilla on how to make Hong Kong a Great Place to Work #GPTW.

Finally, we could physically join the Google Cloud Summit Hong Kong after the 3 years long pandemic. Over thousand of guests attended the event today. The vibrant and engaging atmosphere was very impressive and full of passion. Thanks the great leadership from Kathy Lee and Disaree (DiDi) Wong to make this happen again in Hong Kong.

Today, we have witnessed many new offerings from Google. Needless to say, it was all about AI. Google really makes AI easier for every one from IT to business users. Impressive demos from June Yang on their innovation and applications on Generative AI. It was eye opener for me. Google and several renowed speakers also talked about democratizing data analytics and AI to users at all levels. Data culture again comes to the top of the list.

I delivered a talk in today’s summit on our experience how we collaborated with Google to empower business users in private and public sectors to make use of data every day as their habits through our Data Literacy Empowerment Programme #DLEP. Thanks for Owen Chong Michael Yung and Ricky Lau from Google for their support. More can be found here https://ochacademy.com/.

Grateful to see that the SAP NOW is back to Hong Kong. It is another great signal of the fast recovery and the strong resilence of our vibrant innovation and technology ecosystem in Hong Kong. Let’s add oil 大家加油! 👏💪.

My radar is always on data and AI. I was keen on learning more on how SAP leverages AI to add values to their clients. Learnt a lot from the renowned speakers from Hong Kong Jockey Club, Swire Coca-Cola, AS Watson and SAP certainly. Here are my 4 key takeaways today:

1. Business Process-specific Generative AI to empower the SAP customers to make use of ChatGPTs to solve problems. SAP has a strategic partnership with #Microsoft on Generative AI for enterprises.

2. Swire Coca-Cola collaborated with SAP not just on AI but data culture. They empower users and IT/Data teams to collaborate and unlock the power of data. Thanks to Matthew TC Wong from Swire Coca-Cola for his sharing on Data-driven culture and the One Team initiative.

3. Domain, technology, data and people are always the key for any change or transformation. AI adoption has no exception. Thanks to Andrew Ma for his sharing on New Retail eLab Tech @ A.S. Watson

4. Focus of SAP HK on 3C: China, Completeness and Customer. Thanks to Esmond’s and his teammates for their commitment and contribution to HK.

Thanks for the leadership from Esmond Tong and the great effort of many good friends in SAP like Andrew LingCannie TsangHelen LamGreg Wong and many others to make it happen. I believe a few hundred audiences attended this conference in the Ocean Park today. Well done.

Met many old and new friends today like Randy LaiKeith ChanRavel LaiVincent SoHenry HuiWilliam ChanRicky LeeDustin LeeDavid Chanemily chanGodfrey Poon and many more. Really pleased to see smiling faces and missed the f2f chats.

Ravel, Henry and I from #DaLa founding team shared with many of our friends there on the mission of our DaLa – Data Literacy Association – to empower everyone to speak data in the AI era. See you guys around in the journey of our Data Literacy Empowerment journey.

AI hurricane has been triggered and highly accelerated by the #ChatGPT tide. Thanks for the Economic Journal #HKEJ #信報 to arrange a special edition on this hot topic. Cally Chan #MicrosoftCrystal Fok #HKSTP and I (in the capacity of #CUHK and DaLa – Data Literacy Association), had a chance to sit down and shared our view on this unprecedented storm to the whole mankind and more importantly its impact to Hong Kong.

My view is that we have one more key stakeholder in our ecosystem. That is the AI-driven robots. Just like other key stakeholders such as startups, investors, professionals, and more, they are one of the key partners for us to co-create values for our customers and societies. Human-AI collaboration is the ultimate competitive advantage in the Digital Era (Oh well, at least this decade). Whoever can make this right will lead the market and advance their career far better than who can’t.

Please have a look of our views. We will for sure discuss even more in the upcoming many occasions and many years ahead. See you and bots around. Cheers.
