ExComm members. Apart from KMP, KF is also the Co-Founder of the Institute of Certified Marketers and the Global Chinese Marketing Federation.

KMP2P was an initiation by KF in November 2012 during the graduation dinner of MScKM graduates, calling on all the KM graduates to work together as a community, aiming to foster KM in the Hong Kong society and at the same time continue learning and developing opportunities for all KMers. KMP2P was started since then, and was operated by a group of graduates but also in the KM graduate circle. KF left Hong Kong in May 2013 and worked in China, while staying connected with KMP2P. After returning to Hong Kong in December 2014, KMP2P was pretty much unchanged.
While working in HK as a consultant in 2015, and involved in the activities of KMP2P, KF found it difficult to develop opportunities for the KMers in the original model. At the end of 2015, KF spent a lot of time and formulated the new KMP operation model, which is a successor of KMP2P, and started to include non-graduates as members who are also interested in KM. The new KMP platform was developed by KF together with other key members forming a Provisional Executive Committee. A formal announcement of KMP was made on 7 May 2016. A new website was also developed by KF to cope with the operation and activities of KMP.
KF has a very diversified background. He started off as an engineer in customer field service, then changed to marketing, sales, business development, and finally in the senior management. His academic background include engineering, computing, telecommunication technology and knowledge management. In his past experience, almost every job was a startup.
