Goodbye 2022, Hello 2023. First of all, I wish all of you have a prosperous, healthy & happy year in 2023. In the amazing Christmas and New Year holiday, there is no better time to review 2022 & plan forward.

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.
C = Community
A = Academy
S = Start-up
E = Enterprise

To recap 2022, I have done 120+ LinkedIn posts in the year. The actual number of activities, effort & challenges behind the scene were more than that. 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. You are always welcome to visit me. I am happy to share more with you about my CASE model & plans ahead. Look forward to collaborating with you even more in 2023 & beyond.

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.

Joined the GS1 Hong Kong Summit 2022 today in my capacity as the President of Internet of Things #IoT Industry Advisory Council https://lnkd.in/gZ3M-NrZ. Thanks for Anna Lin‘s invitation.

Really like the main theme “Enabling Growth through #IDD“. Guess what IDD means? We may recall the old memory of IDD which means the International Direct Dialing. IDD today means #Innovation#Disruption and #DigitalTransformation. I learned a lot more about ESG, Digital Transformation, New Retail, Data Analytics, eCommerce, Trade Finance, and MetaVerse from many speakers and panelists like Rico Lau#LawsgroupLouis Mah#MaximsSamuel lau#KerryLogisticsAnson Bailey (eMBA)#KPMGNelson Chow#HKMASandy Tan#DBS, and many others today.

More importantly, met many good friends f2f whom we haven’t seen each other physically for the last 3 years. Really felt great and warm to see many bright entrepreneurs and leaders such as Dr. Michael Chan #CafeDeCoralLucia Cheung#HKIMDanny Shum#Ztore#TVBKeith Wu#FulumCrystal Pang#PickupsVincent SoHenry Yeung#RTIA.

I am also very happy to see my elite #CUHK#EMBA students like Vincent WongEdmund ChanMae Chen there. Really grateful that my students have started engaging more with the #innovation and #technology#ecosystem as I often encourage them to do more. Well done.

Thank you so much to May Chung, FACKMAnna LinMignone ChengDr. Stephen LamCorinna Fung and many others from GS1 Hong Kong team #GS1HK to organize such a fruitful summit.

Don’t forget to download the excellent report “Retail Recharged: Engaging consumers with technology, purpose and trust – 2022 Survey” from GS1HK and KPMG. Thanks the perfect Duo Anna Lin and Anson Bailey (eMBA) to present its key findings on stage. Brilliant and insightful performance.

Grateful to have Cally Chan from #Microsoft to be my guest for another episode of the RTHK New Management Thinking programme #管理新思維. Appreciate her insightful sharing with us. Thanks to her teammate Bobo Wong for her great effort behind the scene.

We tapped into Cally’s brain on her view on a few interesting hot topics like Women In Tech, Hybrid Working Style, Startups, Digital Transformation, GenZ Talents, Sustainability and ESG, and certainly Cloud and MetaVerse.

We also explored the future of Hong Kong and GBA. Cally is a positive, passionate and visionary leader. She and I believe a healthy and vibrant ecosystem is super important for everyone’s success in Hong Kong. Knowing how to co-create values with the ecosystem will lead us to stay ahead of the curve.

Cally talked about “ABCD..EFGH”. What is it? Stay tuned to RTHK1 this Sunday Aug 21 at 2pm to listen to Cally’s sharing. https://lnkd.in/f-X8RaN

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.

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 Hong Kong Jewellery and Goldsmith Association has launched a meaningful and impactful project to empower their members (small to large practitioners in their industry) to learn, plan and take actions on digital transformation. The project’s Chinese name is 「推動珠寶零售行業數碼轉型能力提升」。The Association has key members from all major jewelry companies like Chow Tai Fook, Chow Sang Sang, etc.

With the support of the HKSAR Government and HKPC, the project will do education and awareness programme in the 1st phase. Then, they will collect feedback and plan for the phase 2. It is a very good program to empower a traditional industry to stay relevant and competitive in the digital age. To know more about this project, you can watch this video.

“Think and Act BOLDER Culture: Co-creating Values for Our Customers” is the main theme for the 2nd Mastermind Forum of Sunlife Hong Kong.

Just finished conducting a 4 days intensive and fruitful EMBA course on Innovation and Intrapreneurship Management for CUHK. On one hand, I am exhausted. On the other hand, I am very grateful as 83 top executives from the mainland China participated my class on Zoom even under the pandemic situation. Engaging 83 executive students for 4 full days on Zoom (plus conducted in Putonghua) was not easy as you could imagine but we did have a joyful and valuable learning experience together.

Not only the number of students has broken my record of teaching EMBA class, the quality of the students were very impressive. They came from different industries like property, professional services, design, manufacturing, engineering, technology and even agriculture. At the beginning, I had some doubt on how much they wanted to learn innovation and how much effort they would put on a course as they are all busy and uprising bosses and top executives. To my surprise, they were serious and really put lots of effort to learn. Really appreciate their passion and perservance to learn.

Apart from going through core concepts and models, we learned corporate innovations and intrapreneurship by exploring 10 influential and inspiring internationl and Chinese cases. We discussed, debated and learned through this process. It was also my honour to have three elite leaders as my guest speakers to share how they innovate as a startup (Sum Wong from #EventX), a tech giant (Jacqueline Chong from #Amazon#AWS) and a traditional enterprise (Damien Wu#ChinaChem). We all learned a lot from them. Really appreciate it.

Now, I need to relax a bit and get a good sleep. Enjoy the Easter Holiday!
