The Future of Geo Talent in the Digital World
Reskill, Build, Establish Capabilities
The Singapore Land Authority and GeoWorks, Strategic Partners of Geo Connect Asia, will be organising the Singapore Geospatial Festival (SGGeoFest) from 6 – 17 September 2021 on a virtual platform.
The two-week programme brings together the international geospatial community, with its co-located activities to promote the use of GPS/Location-based and mapping innovation.
Are you ready for the digital skills transformation?
As more industries and organisations accelerate their digital transformation, tech staff recruitment, retention and reskilling are one of today's biggest challenges.
The rapid change of job competencies and the associated need for organisational restructuring will play a key role in shaping the future of the work environment. Geospatial innovation and location intelligence- based solutions are a core part of the evolving digital landscape and require a mix of skills, which do not always fit neatly into one frame. From the more traditional backgrounds of GIS and surveying new skillsets in demand range from understanding everything from AI and AR to robotics and data analytics.
Hear what our industry practitioners have to say and learn the Dos and Don’ts – in building talent and capacity in this arena as we transform for tomorrow.
The interactive 1-hour panel discussion addresses:
The future talent needs for the geospatial and broader tech sectors
Skillsets and areas of competencies
Best practices: change management; deep immersion courses
Retaining, nurturing, & developing your current workforce
Upskilling mid-career candidates
