What we're about

Events and workshops that will help you unlock new skills for a better career.

About this Meetup:

This group was created and managed by Xccelerate (https://xccelerate.co) in Hong Kong.

Hong Kong has a way to go before it is considered a "tech hub" competitive with other leading cities in the world.

The intention of this group is to move the needle in Hong Kong. We want to raise awareness in tech, from a high level "what you need to know" to practical skills you can use in the workplace and thus enhance your career.

Our events, workshops and meetups always have the goal of enhancing engagement and facilitating transformative tech skills development here in Hong Kong. We hope you leave each event with more knowledge than when you joined and meet like-minded individuals that expand your value network.

Many attendees of our events do ask how they can pursue further knowledge if they want to continue to develop skills. The majority of meetups shared here will provide information on this, which may come in the form of future events, workshops and courses provided by Xccelerate and its network of industry professional instructors.

Future Proofing Hong Kong - Financial Services

Online event

Note: This event will be held via online livestream! RSVP and you will be sent the stream information on the day of the event About this Event Preparing Financial Industry for the 4th Industrial Revolution. The 4 pillars of the Hong Kong economy are tourism, professional services, finance and trading logistics, with Education as part of the 6 industries, are we educating the future workforce ready for the 4th Industrial Revolution? FINANCE As financial institutions have been one of the most affected industries in the world, presenting new risks to manage and understand. However, Hong Kong has been quickly able to adapt to such changes by going digital and experimenting with emerging technologies to lessen the effects of the virus on the financial markets. Due to such radical changes, there has been a growing demand for computer scientists, software engineers and data scientists in the job market in order to fill in the gap. A recent article by CNBC that highlights the 60% increase in demand for artificial intelligence developers in major investment and commercial banks emphasizes that the need of computer scientists has only recently been recognized. Many industry heads proclaim how the use of computer programming have sped up operations and are also trying to combine their knowledge on finance with a programming mindset. Due to such changes, recent surveys suggest that educational institutions do not prepare students to join the workforce, as such institutions are teaching obsolete material to their students. People are now looking for critical thinking and computer skills rather than textbook knowledge. Amid millions of layoffs and hiring freezes around the world due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the only roles that are seeing an upsurge is in the IT sector. Our expert panel will dig into what it will take for Hong Kong to remain stable throughout the next decade as we quickly move into the 4th industrial revolution, where finance becomes increasingly more fused with the digital universe through A.I adoption. Topics we will cover: - Are the 4 pillars future proof with A.I technologies? - What are the disruptive technologies shaping Finance? - What other leading countries are doing to stay ahead - Jobs in the financial sectors will inevitably become redundant - How can bankers and financiers adapt their careers? - How are institutions up-skilling their workforce? - How are schools helping those that are about to enter the increasingly digital workforce? Who should attend: - Anne personally or professionally invested in the realm of the 4 pillars - Those looking to future proof their careers - Bankers and execs that what a high-level overview of emerging technologies that are transforming the way we do business - Prospective investors and financiers that want to be ahead on the latest news about the finance industry.
