“Every leader needs to be a #DigitalLeader in the #DigitalEconomy.” #Digital is not just an enabler for business but also a #GameChanger for almost all industries. To stay competitive and relevant, every executive and professional need to #reskill and #upskill on their digital leadership instead of leaving it to just #IT colleagues.

A team of well-experienced digital practitioners, innovative entrepreneurs & I, together with my #CUHK teammates, have designed a “Digital Leadership Series for Executives” programme to empower today’s leaders from traditional industries with digital #Mindset#Capability & #DigitalWorkforce management.

The series include 8 two-day modules with lectures, cases, discussions, guests sharing & hands-on workshops. Participants can take one to all of these modules. Topic ranges from #DesignThinking #DigitalMarketing #CustomerEngagement #CorporateInnovation #Entrepreneurship #Agile Development #AI #BigData #Blockchain #Platform.

Good news is that most of these modules are eligible for the #RTTP https://lnkd.in/gwwfXHT funding from the government.
