COVID-19 has raised an urgent awareness of the capabilities and skills that will be needed to respond to the future of business and organisational success.
Join Jessica Schubert, Business Women Australia Head of Learning and Development, and Jessica Pankiw, Torrens University Australia Pathways & Partnerships Development Manager, at our online Boardroom Banter discussing the relevant skills that Australian businesses and industries will be looking for in this new world of work.
Workplaces of the 21st Century, post-COVID will look different than they did in 2019. The Australian Government is injecting substantial funding to guide the development of new skills and to encourage people to embrace the jobs that will be needed going forward. What does this mean for anyone reviewing their careers today, and investing in education that will set them up for employment or business success?
In this online boardroom banter, we will delve into the needs faced by Australian businesses, the aspirations of employees and the responses from Universities. Whether efforts are focused on up-skilling or aspirational transformation, it is more important than ever to ensure any investment in time, energy and money goes towards critical learning on a pathway towards employment or successful entrepreneurship.
Jessica Pankiw will share her higher education insights and how Torrens University Australia selects and develops course choices, including the relevant university qualifications and degrees on offer. She will explain what students should consider when choosing a degree and pathway, with advice about extra-curricular activities to consider to strengthen chances for employment.
Jess Schubert brings her insights developing high performance international teams and leaders and will share what businesses are valuing, including the soft skills that support modern workplace cultures.
This online banter is a great opportunity to hear how the global pandemic has impacted businesses and organisation leadership, highlighting key employee attributes and behaviours that will be needed in the “new normal.”
Following the banter there will be an opportunity to ask any questions, plus time set aside specifically for anyone who may be considering submitting for the BWA Scholarship Pitch to Torrens University Australia.
