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.

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.

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.

I ran into “Bank of Future” today in the 2022 FinTech Week Hong Kong #FTWHK https://lnkd.in/gNF–y47. It was wonderful and amazing to see many old and new friends in the FinTech space. More eye-opening innovations from our FinTech ecosystem. Our innovation have not been stopped by the pandemic.

“Pushing Boundaries, Reaping Benefits” is this year’s main theme. I saw traditional financial services are doing exactly like this. Transunion’s “Beyond Credit”, DBS’s “More like a startup, less like a bank”. How about FinTech startups? #DimOrder looks like a POS system and now well beyond POS to solve finance related pain points for their supply chain. They got accepted to the world’s best accelerator, #YCombinator. Arguably, Y Combinator is the factory of Unicorns. DimOrder is our Hong Kong’s honour and proud. #Diginex goes beyond ESG reporting to solve the financing issues of SMEs. And more beyond everything plus the X factor of MetaVerse.

Thanks for Victor Yim #CyberportCrystal Fok #HKSTPJessica Liu #FTAHK and many other ecosystem enablers to make these all happened. More financial services incumbents are open their doors to collaborate with startups while the government and regulators have new policy and fundings for the fintech ecosystem in Hong Kong.

New initiatives on #CBDC#CDI#DigitalAsset, blockchain-based and AI applications plus #MetaVerse with infinite imagination are emerging. The financial services companies in this decade is going to be revolutionized. Or we should ask ourselves “What is a financial services company in 2030?” Stay tuned for more.

Glad to meet quite a few elite FinTech leaders and entrepreneurs there, such as, Marie Claire Lim Moore #TransunionBen Wong #DimOrderBenedict Ang #OCBCKevin Leung #LIQUIDTaurus Cheung #ShipAnyPatrick C.S. Fan #beNoveltyThomson Ho #10LifeAnkit Suri #PlanToBen Wong #SunLifeJaff Lau #HSBCPaul Wan #SCBCulsin Li #BaoBabTre and many other great startups and innovation leaders from #HSBC#SCB#BEA#DBS#OCBC, and more there as well. See you around in the venue or online.
