The Future with Technology—A Mentoring Podcast

By The Mentoring Circle

Permanent forces of change are taking hold in the form of globalisation, technological shifts, and economic and political uncertainty. Everything is faster, more interconnected, complex, and ambiguous than ever before.

The Mentoring Circle invited two alumni,  Jimmy Soh (BSc Information Systems, 2017) and Jackson Kwa (BSc Information Systems, 2018), and Associate Professor Paul Griffin from the SMU School of Information Systems to talk about adapting to an ever-changing world.

This podcast will bring about an insightful discussion regarding the impact of technological advancement on university students’ career aspirations, particularly those who are coming from non-tech backgrounds.

Jackson Kwa is the Co-Founder and Managing Partner of TechSociety Group and had worked at Alibaba in the Strategic Partnership department.
