Dr. Toa Charm as Speaker of HKPC’s Webinar on 4th March
As Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) spreads all over the world, some Hong Kong corporations are still adopting the “Work From Home” policy and advise their staff to stay home. Staying at home, however, doesn’t mean staying idle. This is the opportunity for the talents to utilize their free time to study online, which most of us may not have time to do so in ordinary times.
In the last week, Hong Kong Productivity Council (HKPC) has launched a free webinar with the topic of “The Most Wanted Data Technology Talent: Reskill Everyone with Big Data Literacy in the Digital Economy.” Hundreds of audiences from diverse backgrounds, who have started aware of the importance of data literacy, have joined the online forum.

Dr. Toa Charm stated that “Every business leader & executive needs to boost their DQ in order to be able to create data-driven business models and monetize their data. It is a common language like English that we use for our business worldwide.”
