What are your previous experiences and positions held that contributed to who you are as a banker/financial services expert today?
My diverse background from sales and marketing, product development, electronic channel innovation and client implementation and management help me to understand our customer needs from end to end. My experience in the Hong Kong and China markets also help me to appreciate the cultural differences of customers in different continents, and to come up with solutions that best serve their needs.

What are your key business philosophies?
To provide a solution which addresses customer needs, rather than product driven sales. To establish long term partnerships with mutual benefits to both the customer and the bank

Can you give us a glimpse of what you will share at the panel discussion at the Banking Forum in Hong Kong? What can you say about the impact of digital banking on physical bank branches in Hong Kong and in the region?
The role of the branch to change from servicing into advisory. Routine day to day operational needs to be moving into digital channel gradually.

The 2017 Banking Forum will be held on July 26 at the Conrad Hong Kong.
