可惜我看到的是, 小企業或為了掙扎求生或因繁瑣制度拖累, 握殺了創意, 也磨滅了對科技的熱情。 近年社會的氣氛更充斥著懷疑及仇恨, 這可是一個能推動創意的環境嗎?!
「一齊揀‧選Create」是我們「ICT Create」團隊的口號，基於共同的理念和一致的使命，希望與廣大的通訊及資訊科技界從業員一起選擇下屆特首。我們主張推動香港的創意、創業、STEM、IoT和專業地位，培育ICT人才, 各展所長，以創意和科技改變香港。特首候選人, 請用心聆聽我們ICT業界的聲音!
全球經濟前景越發嚴峻, 產業數據化已經成為必然的趨勢。 大企業爭相步入工業4.0或中國製造2025的年代, 小企業若未能同步必然被時代淘汰。 我們曾經一度為本地科技為傲, 但今天卻未能利用科技在數據化的洪流中為小企業提供生存空間, 情何以堪!
Give Us Back an Environment Fit for Innovation!
I returned to this city with the aim to protect my loved ones and the place about which I care tremendously, despite leaving my comfort zone and giving up on the people and things to which I was attached. It wasn’t an easy decision, but I strongly believed that I could shine where my roots are.
However, I’m devastated by the sight of struggling entrepreneurs submitting to bureaucracy and to the harsh reality, leaving passion for technology behind, while these are supposed to be the heart of the industry. Mistrust, speculation, and hatred fill the air in recent years. How can there be any motivation for creativity and innovation in such an environment?
“Create . Great!” is our slogan. We share the same vision, and we aim for the same mission. That is, we wish to vote for the next Chief Executive with the voices from the industry. We particularly focus on the promotion of Creativity, Entrepreneurship, STEM Education, IoT, and Professional Recognition, with the hope that all talents can be unleashed, and that creativity can help take the city to the next level.
We hereby request the candidates running for the next Chief Executive to listen and respond to our demands from the ICT industry!
The global economy has taken a harsh turn to the worse, and productivity is forced to move on to digitalization. While industrial leaders rush to adopt to Industry 4.0 or China Manufacturing 2025, SMEs can easily be washed out by this wave unless catching up to it despite limited resources. I remember the time when we were proud of local technical achievements. Yet, we cannot even provide a chance of survival for SMEs with the current technology in the current circumstances!
In view of that, my platform includes Rejuvenate Innovative Spirit, Generalize IoT Applications, Enhance STEM Development, and actually making things work!
On December 11, please exercise your civil rights and support ICT Create! We are comprised of the following members for the Election Committee (IT) sub-sector:
No. 11 LEE Woon Ming Wendy
No. 28 HO Chun Yin Justina
No. 42 CHAN Tik Yuen (Leonard)
No. 55 PANG Tsz Kit Gabriel
Candidate No. 28 HO Chun Yin Justina

全球經濟前景愈益嚴峻，產業數據化、線上化已成為必然的趨勢。小企業若未能同步，必然被時代淘汰。 其實, IoT的起步點其實並非高不可攀, 而且也為小企業在大數據化的洪流中增加生存的空間。 業界需要推動及減輕IoT起步成本，也需要對業內甚至普遍群眾作出教育及推廣。
本港學生科技能力被評估為大倒退, 更顯得 STEM教育的重要性。但現時STEM還是欠缺結構性的政策, 使有心推動的教師、家長因未能善用這項新資源而焦急, 也令已繁重的學校課程百上加斤。深入發展STEM政策，除可減輕負擔、引導學生對科技產生興趣，更能將STEM與業界接軌，讓業界在培育人才方面更有效率。
Believing that I would eventually become a game developer or digital artist back in the days when sophisticated tools were not available, I left Waterloo discouraged, but found my true love, Systems Engineering, in IBM’s WebSphere Group. This experience ultimately laid the foundation of my career. Another early experience that shaped me was my days in Hong Kong Productivity Council, where I discovered my talents in Technology Consultancy. My recent focus is on Industry 4.0.
It’s almost a common knowledge that I’d made IET my second home. From Young Members Section, to ICT Section, to Branch Committee, I found IET a place to let my creativity go wild, whether or not it was the intention of all those chairpersons over the years. Whether it’s student workshop, competition, camp, seminar, international conference, exhibition, show, or dinner, I always find new ways to approach and share with my fellow IET family. My main roles at the moment are Members Services Coordinator and STEM Programme Coordinator. However, it’s never a doubt that I will eventually beg for more roles in various areas.
When the many roles in IET are still not enough to occupy my time, I also take up many voluntary works in other professional bodies, such as HKAAST, HKIE, ITJC. Works involved span in great ranges, but STEM education has always been one of my main focuses.
Born in an Engineering family, I have technology in my blood. That said, it doesn’t stop me from finding passion in a wide range of areas. History, art, archaeology, humanity are all amongst my many passions. I took a law degree while I was taking my Masters in Engineering because “it was fun.” I got my big lesson no doubt, but legal studies ultimately become one of my hobbies.
I also find many cultures fascinating. One of my long term interests falls on the Muslim culture and the Middle East conflicts. That led to my volunteering in the UNHCR and also my realization of helplessness against wars and conflicts. I am trying to make myself a stronger person to become useful in this context.
My motto has become “Make It Work!” after growing out of “Just Do It!” It fails me only when I have to go on diets.
