Introduction to Blockchain Technology (Cantonese Speaker)
Jul 20 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm

科技對各行各業影響非常之大,就連被譽為百業之母的金融銀行業,近年亦因為互聯網金融(Fintech)的流行,而出現翻天覆地的改變。

近年,最備受廣泛關注的必定是區塊鏈 (Blockchain) 技術,而今年政府的施政報告及財政預算案亦有大篇幅提及。

什麼是區塊鏈 (Blockchain)  ?

區塊鏈 (Blockchain) 是一種共享式公共總帳,採分布式分類帳(Distributed Ledger)技術,將資料散布於各區塊資料而無法被單一實體掌控,使交易資料具備安全、透明、可永久記錄等特性,意即透過去中心化的方式集體維護一個可靠數據資料庫的技術方案。

區塊鏈技術是由密碼學、數學、演算法及經濟模型所組成,結合 P2P,並採用分散式共識演算法,來解決傳統分散式資料庫的同步問題,是整合跨領域技術的一項基礎建設。

數位貨幣是區塊鏈技術的具體應用,運作原理是由數個節點組成一個網路,當某一個節點發起一筆交易時,會將此需求傳遞給其他節點,所有節點皆可以透過共識演算法決定誰可以驗證這筆交易。在這項應用領域中,最早崛起且最為普及的為 2008 年出現的比特幣,不依靠特定貨幣機構發行,通過特定演算法的大量計算產生。由網路透過發行量每 4 年減半的方式,持續增加貨幣供給,無法偽造,總發行量穩定在 2100 萬個。

在區域發展方面,以目前全球的發展狀況,區塊鏈投資主要集中在北美、歐洲,亞洲排名第三,並且以中國為主。

究竟 Blockchain 如何顛覆我們的日常生活?

Millionaire Success Habits revealed in Hong Kong by Dean Graziosi
Jul 21 @ 10:00 am – 1:00 pm
Millionaire Success Habits revealed in Hong Kong by Dean Graziosi @ Kowloon | Hong Kong

Dean Graziosi is sending his Millionaire Success Habits to Hong Kong, and right now tickets are FREE!

Join us at this fun, relaxed and informative Conference that can give you a new way to think about making money like never before. Dean’s Millionaire Success Habits have helped lead him to a New York Times best-selling book and a life of financial prosperity. This event is all about helping you succeed! Dean’s team will be teaching how locals in Hong Kong and surrounding cities can develop and use the proven Millionaire Success Habits!

The #1 reason most people don’t get what they really want in life is because they focus so much of their thoughts and their mental energy on what they DON’T want.

In reality, the real key to success is to focus on what you actually DO really WANT. So…are you 100% clear on what YOU really want?

Obviously, to get from where you are to where you want to go, you need a strategy…. that’s where most people and most plans fall apart. They don’t know what first action to take. They never learned how. They don’t have the knowledge, skills, and a step-by-step system with which to create and build that life.

The first mistake they make is simply not focusing on the things they truly want, and the negative thoughts just continue to sabotage their success… You see, I came from humble beginnings. Yet over time, I have gone on (with much trial and error) to create financial freedom for myself and my family… Something I’ve learned is that the biggest key success principle is not focusing on where you DON’T want to go, but rather, focusing on where you WANT to go!……

Look past your negative thoughts, your doubts and the problems holding you back! Instead, envision where you see yourself in one year, or maybe even in five years…. I want to help you get there.

I’m Dean Graziosi and I want to give you a ticket to attend MY NEW EVENT, “How People Can Profit From the Millionaire Success Habits”. At this event, you’ll learn dozens of simple-to-understand strategies– the strategies shared by the most successful people on the planet.

I WANT YOU TO ATTEND FOR FREE! Plus, I’m buying Dinner! The key is forming successful habits. Something I cover to a great extent in my new book (Which everyone who attends will receive a copy of).

Another big key to becoming successful is that you must BELIEVE you can – and sometimes developing this belief is the hardest obstacle to overcome. We’ll be covering that too! If you’d like to avoid the mistakes I’ve made, and learn from my 40+ years of experience and see the exact habits I’ve developed that have enabled me to become successful – habits that I promise can work for you too – then click the link and get your FREE tickets to my event today

Big Data Analytics with Excel and Power BI Workshop (Cantonese Speaker)
Jul 23 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm


全民大數據行動正式開始!

隨著互聯網的急速發展與普及,網路上的數據每年將增長超過 50%,每兩年便將翻一番,而目前世界上90%以上的數據是最近 2 年才產生的,這就是我們當前所處的「大數據」時代!

「大數據」這個科技名詞在各種媒體上頻繁出現,毫無疑問已經成為當今科技界的熱點了。

其實業界提出的「大數據」概念,不僅告訴我們的是它的數量,更重要的是數據的分析利用,如何讓這樣海量的數據轉換為對企業更有價值的業務分析信息。

利用熟悉的 Excel 對數據進行分析

說到數據分析和商業智能,人們更多的會想到專業的數據平台和業界幾大軟體廠商,覺得這是專業人員的工作。

其實 Excel 就是一個強大的「自助式商業智能」解決方案工具,他可以更加輕鬆、簡單的完成數據的整合、分析和展示。

但只有數據分析並不足以快速了解公司發展,如果能夠配合圖表則事半功倍,Power BI 正正為此而生。

利用 Power BI 來分析資料及共用深入資訊

Power BI 儀表板可為商務使用者提供全方位的觀點,將所關注的重要計量全部集中在一處並即時更新,讓使用者隨時都能從其裝置存取這些資料。只要按一下,使用者就能透過操作簡便的工具探索儀表板中潛藏的資訊,迅速獲得所需要的答案。

Power BI 連接了超過 50 項以上的熱門商務應用程式,讓您很快就能上手使用。無論身在何處,都能透過 Power BI Mobile 應用程式存取您的資料及報表,而且應用程式還會隨著資料變更而自動更新。

您若是資料分析師,需要將報表與分析提供給您的組織,Power BI 能讓您的工作更有效率,資料內容更豐富。
