Webinar: Business, Data & Communication - How to Reinvent Yourself in the Changed World
You must reinvent yourself to stay in the game. — Madonna
Schools and organizations were designed based on one principle: specialization. In a specialized world, students and employees dig “parallel trenches”. Everyone digs their own trench, rarely standing up and looking over the other, even though the solution to their problem might be right there in the next trench.
However, the world is no longer running by “functions” but driven by “challenges”. Almost any job you do, any problem you need to solve is “cross-functional”. Seeking “generalists”, rather than “specialists”, has been prioritized in talent acquisition and career development.
Digital talent, combining business, data, and communications into one, has become one of the most demanded skillset in today’s job market. The idea is to expose you to multiple domains so that you can see connections between them and integrate diverse experiences and perspectives to solve unexpected problems.
The CCPAA-ON invites Eric Liu, the co-founder & CEO of WeCareer Inc., to share with us how to embrace the change of digital transformation, and to evolve and develop required data analytical and communication skills to stay ahead in the workplace.
Eric will facilitate a discussion on:
- why is now a high time to re-skill and up-sill individuals amid the digital transformation of enterprises;
- why should individuals from a FABE (finance, accounting, business, economics) background learn data analysis and visualization
- how to develop a competitive advantage around 8-word mantra within a short time: build pipelines, define KPIs, develop dashboards and automate processes.
