🎤🎧 Join me at the upcoming  #CUHK  #EMBA Master Class on “Navigating Innovation Failure: Valuable Insights for Business Leaders.”

Inevitably, innovation failure is an integral aspect of any business journey, yet it offers valuable insights for leaders. Regrettably, individuals rarely discuss their unfavorable experiences with innovation, whether in the workplace or classroom setting.

In my class on corporate innovation that I deliver to my CUHK EMBA students every year and our CUHK Corporate Innovation Index (CII) project that we conduct every year to measure the level of innovation for large and small companies in Hong Kong, understanding and investigating the causes of innovation failure is an essential component for the prosperity of businesses of all scales.

In this Master class, I will delve into the importance of embracing failure as a learning opportunity and uncover the reasons behind innovation failures. By examining real-world examples and discussing common pitfalls, I aim at inspiring participants with strategies for effectively managing innovation failure, fostering a culture of experimentation, and empowering teams.

During the upcoming Master Class, we will have the exciting opportunity to hear from XINGYU CHEN, an esteemed member of our EMBA 2024 cohort and a prominent IT leader at P&G Hong Kong. Xingyu will graciously share his invaluable learning experiences both inside and outside of the classroom, offering unique insights into our esteemed EMBA program.

In the collection of class photos, you will easily spot Xingyu as he stands out in his distinctive green jacket. His active involvement and proactive engagement, alongside his dedicated teammates, exemplify the essence of our EMBA classes – dynamic and interactive learning environments where participation is encouraged and valued.

Learning real-world innovation practices are critical as well. We often invite some of the best innovators in Hong Kong as our guest speakers to share their innovation experiences. In the photos, you can see Tat Lee and Kenny Cheng from WeLab Bank  #WeLab, and Chun Kai Lawrence Chau from  #MidlandProperty.

The Master Class will take place on November 8, from 7:30 to 9:00 pm at the CUHK Business School Town Centre, located on the 1st floor of the Bank of America Tower, 12 Harcourt Road, Central, Hong Kong. For further details and registration, please visit

Whether you are a business leader, technology practitioner, professional, entrepreneur, or a student on any discipline, embracing innovation is essential to creating & sustaining a competitive edge. I am excited to invite all of you to join my Master Class, where we will delve into the invaluable lessons and opportunities that can arise from the failures encountered in the pursuit of innovation.
