Our upcoming Coffee with Dika session is going to be interesting! We are exploring
The Science and Art of Future Jobs.
The future workplace demands us to be experts more skills than one. Careers are merging. The line that separates science and art is blurring. A family doctor running a private practice needs to have the business skills to manage the clinic. A professor needs to be a subject expert and master the art of teaching and learning so their students understand them. A chef needs to master their culinary skills while understanding the molecular science of the cuisine suitable for the different palates and dietary needs. We need to be prepared to do the jobs of the future that don’t exist today. This seminar, conducted together with a few industry experts engages participants to explore multidisciplinary skill sets and learning to equip themselves for their future careers.
For this, we have invited three special guests from different industries to share their journey and experience.
Day, Date: Saturday, 4th March 2017
Time: 10 am to 12 pm
