Skipping Ahead – How the drive to success makes dream come true

True success requires not only a bright vision of the future, but the drive to push past challenges and obstacles and stay focused on your dream. Karl Cheung, the man behind the energetic Hong Kong Institute of Rope Skipping, tells us how drive and passion are equally important to making your dreams come true.

Data and Emotions – The keys to the new retail kingdom

In China, the seamless connection of online, offline, logistics and data along a single value chain is already a reality. Two key variables will power this vision as it goes global: harnessing the incredible power of data and understanding and responding to customers’ emotions. “Uni marketing” is the next evolutionary stage of marketing, allowing companies to use both data and emotions.

People often say that China will soon overtake Silicon Valley, and by one measure they are right – the sheer size of investment and quantity of talent in cities like Shenzhen skew the numbers towards China.

Instead, let’s look at how China and Silicone Valley are both crucial stakeholders in the future success of humanity itself.

Bringing Global Dreams to Life through Knowledge

What happens to a start-up after the rush of initial success has passed? How do you leverage what you have learned to prepare for further growth?
