SY Lau is one of the pioneers of the Internet industry in China. During his career with Tencent, China’s largest company by market cap and the leading provider of Internet value added services, he has become well versed in a number of fields, including the new economy, Internet trends, and digital media. Frequently styled as a “technology evangelist”, he is often called upon to share his observations and insights on the Internet’s value to China’s national economy and people’s livelihoods, innovation, corporate social responsibility and leadership development. Mr. Lau’s expertise regarding the new digital economy has led to an invitation to represent China at the International Monetary Fund’s Fifth Statistical Forum in November 2017.

During his lecture, Mr. Lau will talk about how his multifaceted career has shaped his conviction that society cannot afford to wait for future events to overwhelm us, rather the public and private sectors must work with academia to proactively lay the intellectual and experiential groundwork that will shape our future leaders.
