Why You Need To Be Digitally Skilled And Highly Connected
How business is changing and is forcing us all to become digitally skilled and highly connected.There was a time when business professionals and leaders could focus only on the skill that they traded in, also a time when employment was the best option for stability and wealth.
Now business people have to understand digital technology in order to build their worth in their market sector and to manage their daily business tasks efficiently.
Now with self-employment growing at an unprecedented rate, and digital invading all aspects of business and personal life, we all have to step up and be skilled with how to connect with others and manage our digital processes.
Our guest on today’s programme is Penny Power OBE. Penny has worked with technology since 1983, seeing the PC take its place on the desktop, in the home and then the emergence of digital.
