CFTE Co-Founder Tram Anh Nguyen was vocal at Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation’s #MyDigitalWorkforce week on the HOWs to upskill and re-skill in a digital world, as unemployment is rising and the pandemic reaches its peak.
In a post-COVID19 world, where the acceleration of digitalisation is widening the skills gap, it is essential for governments and businesses to take the necessary steps to stay relevant and ahead of these constant changes.
Last week, MDEC’s #MyDigitalWorkforce aimed to tackle this ongoing issue to find solutions at scale for businesses and governments. Tram Anh Nguyen, CFTE’s Co-Founder, shared that in the midst of the current pandemic it is no longer about the WHY but about the HOW to reskill.
Alongside Tram Anh, a panel discussion between EdTech leaders took place to share thoughts and insights on COVID19’s impact on the industry, the most engaging training methods, and future skills needed for the workforce.
