As the reality of the 4th industrial revolution begins to impact the way that we work and live across the globe it has become clear to all forward thinking organisations that a modern workforce must continue to learn and adapt at an ever increasing rate. We need more stimulating debate and so I welcome the addition of this new event Workplace Learning Live to Hong Kong to help organisations large and small as they look to adapt their structures and solutions to ensure they have a future ready workforce and don’t get left behind!
The Workplace Learning Live fills a void in the Hong Kong conference landscape. While there are conferences on general human resources, talent management and other topics, there are currently no credible event platforms for learning technologies. The corporate learning technologies landscape has become massive with organisations investing heavily into building the infrastructure of future workplace education. The conference would provide a much needed medium for learning professionals, technologists and business executives to gather and develop 21st century approaches to corporate learning. I would definitely attend this conference and believe it would attract wide interest in the professional community.

Beijing’s ambitious plan to integrate 67 million citizens from Hong Kong, Macau and nine mainland cities into one Greater Bay Area has the potential to transform the entire area into a technology and innovation powerhouse that can rival Silicon Valley.
While Hong Kong’s potential role in the banking and financial sphere appears to be well understood, it’s not so clear exactly what the city can contribute in terms of innovation and technology.
Smart cities like Shenzhen have already earned a glowing international reputation for high-technology innovation and for embracing the digital sharing economy. It already hosts giant tech companies like Tencent, Huawei, BYD and ZTE, so how can Hong Kong fit in?
Education rather than pure innovation must be the way forward for Hong Kong in the context of the Greater Bay Area. The city is much better placed to play a leading role in driving the technology education that will be the foundation for the success of the Greater Bay Area, than it is to be a hotbed of mass high-tech manufacturing.
With international standards in education, world-class universities and researchers, a growing STEM education network and a mature and internationally influenced school system, Hong Kong is ideally positioned to be a center of excellence for technology education.
