for a COVID-19 World

About this Event

It is estimated that 480 million jobs will be lost worldwide and our community in Hong Kong have not been hit any harder than the rest. Jobs have been lost in the thousands, substantial pay cuts have been made and everyone has been faced with challenges that are going to follow us for the next several years. 


Reinventing Careers & Skills for a COVID-19 World takes on the voice of the community bringing together top-level professionals to give their take on the industry through facts, forecasts, and advice to help the working individuals cope and uniquely addresses how to take action with careers, after the economic devastation that COVID-19 has caused.


The agenda focuses on key areas providing practical advice by looking at the macro view of the business environment, implications of recruitment in suffering industries, future skills that should be acquired, and how you need to take on a personal brand to stand out.
