This hugely successful joint event between the IoD City of London branch and InvestHK ended up trending nationally on twitter.
The event aimed to discuss the latest technological developments in Hong Kong, how they were benefiting the business world and what lessons could be shared with the City of London.
It was a great opportunity to learn more about the Hong Kong technology ecosystem and hear what is happening in sub-sectors ranging from FinTech to RetailTech. The event was kindly sponsored by InvestHK and supported by Tech London Advocates (China Working Group) and the Hong Kong Trade Development Council.
Our keynote speaker was Priscilla To, Director-General of the Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office in London. Guests enjoyed a 'fireside chat' with David Stringer-Lamarre, Chairman IoD City, in conversation with Russ Shaw, Founder of Tech London Advocates.
We also had panel discussions chaired by Andrew Davis, Head of Investment Promotion at InvestHK, UK. The panellists included Wendy Jephson, Co-Founder and Chief Behavioural Scientist at Sybenetix Ltd, Charles Ng, Associate Director General of Investment Promotion at InvestHK, Jeff Tijssen, Managing Principal at Capco and Co-Chair FinTech Working Group at the Tech London Advocates as well as Karen Winton, Managing Partner at Nest VC.
Closing remarks were also made by Sabila Din, Chair of the IoD City Financial Services Special Interest Group, after which time there was further networking.
