28 Jan Conference with Dr Judith Konermann
For our first Rosey student conference of the winter term, we had the pleasure of welcoming Dr Judith Konermann, international expert in transforming Fortune 500 companies to Human Capital soft skill-driven organisations. She has worked for global companies like Royal Dutch, Shell, ING Bank, Accenture and NGOs and came to share the latest research and learnings from companies like Google, Apple, ASML, etc. on how they have transformed themselves in most recent years.
In front of a captivated audience, Dr Konermann demonstrated how necessary soft skills are becoming in the professional world, highlighting their importance and evolution above and beyond that of technical ability. Students were eager to give their own opinions and comments on this development, discussing potential benefits and consequences for their own future experience of business and employment.
