What a way to start our 2023! A group of elite FinTech start-ups and leaders from Hong Kong joined me for a RegTech forum today in China Construction Bank Training Centre in Hong Kong. Hundreds of CCB colleagues in various cities of China have participated it online and offline.

This was my 1st event in 2023 and was indeed a great start. Meeting good friends first time this year was just wonderful and warm especially it was f2f. Also, the forum was very fruitful to learn more about RegTech innovation, applications, challenges and best practices in different countries. We also explored how Chinese banks like CCB can leverage Hong Kong experience in regulation and compliance plus the strong drive of FinTech by our regulators and government.

Really appreciate Victor Yim #Cyberport to share his experience at the beginning and all other panel speakers 鄭嘉泓 #WizpressoEmil Chan #AereveJacob Wai, FRM, FFA FIPA, FCMA, CSDP, MHKCS, LLM, MBA #DeloitteWallace Chow #FCCAnalytics, and William Lam #FundingReach. Also, big thank for CCB Training Centre’s colleagues and my teammates’ support.

It has been three years since I visited CCB Training Centre last time because of the pandemic. Once the mainland-HK border reopens on Jan 8, 2023, I am sure we will be there more often. We all hope not just everything is back to normal, but also more FinTech collaboration and value co-creation between HK FinTech ecosystem and mainland banks.

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.

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.

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.

Do you know which companies in Hong Kong are the most innovative ones? More importantly, what can we learn from them? I am so excited to let you know that we are ready to announce the result of our first-ever Hong Kong Corporate Innovation Index CII on Nov 23, 2022.

After more than one-year work on CII, we have identified the most innovative enterprises and SMEs in Hong Kong based on our innovation framework. We will also announce a Composite Index for Corporate Innovation in Hong Kong so that we can compare our improvement in the future years. Don’t miss it. Find out more and register here: https://lnkd.in/dznKapFj

Our aim is not so much on the rankings and awards, but more on identifying the gaps and empowering our Hong Kong companies to innovate more effectively. A series of seminars and workshops will follow. I am so grateful to have the opportunity to contribute to this project as it is impactful, meaningful and influential to Hong Kong competitiveness and sustainable growth.

In the past year, we have done a series of tasks and in fact iterations of tasks, e.g. research, pilot study, interviews, survey, analysis, expert groups, etc., to get these results ready. It was not an easy job as you can imagine. Appreciate all the effort and hard work from our CUHK teammates, all steering committee members, all organizing committee members, all sponsors, all supporting organizations and certainly all the companies who participated in our survey and discussions.

Please join us in the afternoon of Nov 23, 2022 to learn more about corporate innovation. Apart from the CUHK senior management, we will have 2 discussion panels. One is on corporate innovation and another one is on SME innovation. We will talk about the findings from our survey and then discuss with the panelists. They are all ranked high on our Corporate Innovation Index.

HKSAR Government top officials, CUHK management, the top management of the awardees, the key leaders on innovation and technology ecosystem in Hong Kong have confirmed to join the ceremony. Please come to learn from and mingle with them.

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.
