Thread: For a good couple of years now, I have heard @makemytrip stories through #youtube videos, have admired the progress, and got inspired. Today had a privilege to listen to #MakeMyTrip Founder @DeepKalra at @headspin_io #Automation #Hackathon wrap. (1/N)
Trying to list down a few things which I could capture from all the wisdom which was flowing and ones which I will probably remember for a long time.

1. People (#customer) have to come back for a reason. Make sure to give them that. (2/N)
2. Sales were saying go back to the #Corporate job but the heart was saying "Too Early to Give up".

3. Customer Retention is the most important thing.

4. On #UX: I (Customer) am going to give you 5 minutes of my life to you. You have that much time to grab the eyeballs. (3/N)

1/12 Thread on our new report: 'Becoming more open: the view from four European cities'🏙️
theodi.org/article/becomi… #opencities #smartcities

@bsnaith_ from the 'open #cities' team is going to take you through some of the key points from the report...
2/12 All four of these cities – #Amsterdam, #Gdańsk, #Hamburg and #Helsinki – have made significant progress in the move towards becoming open cities. The report shares how they're developing data infrastructure, training staff, engaging with citizens and fostering innovation.
3/12 The report talks about some of the challenges of using #data and #technology, but also how being open and being trustworthy with data can produce better services for citizens, businesses and communities.

Please RT #AcademicTwitter:
Let's not lose the #research & #opportunity of @KzooICMS & @MedievalAcademy since #CoronaCrisis cancelled them.

We have the #technology.
We have the #skills from @QMUL_HSS & @stuffofwar.

Let's make a date in May! cushingmediaeval at gmail dot com
Please note both WMU Medieval & MAA have confirmed that they do not endorse any virtual event in lieu of their #conferencecancelled.
Yet so many people have worked so hard, having work +/- contracts +/- funding in peril, that I can't let it go right when we need it most.
S/f 😎
So please take a look at #WTOStc (symposium) + Prof Todman's blog (below) & consider joining the #medieval #History #twitterstorians
because - #QuarantineLife aside - we all face financial, family, medical, or other barriers to 20th-century ways of work.

Morning all,

Here is a day with unskilled EU Worker.

🍞 It’s 6 am and I am in the kitchen, finishing sourdough bread, it’s naturally fermented dough, rested for already 12 hours. Temperature must be controlled and dough aerated - you need skill to make sure bacteria grows well
Also today is a Fat Thursday, we have over 609 doughnuts to make and get them ready for collection from 12 o’clock, better get going!
This is folded and aerated sourdough, now need to be rested in approx 27c for 2hours. Couple more folds and then ready for 2 hours proving and baking.

🚨 You can’t use automation to make this, its labour of love, skill, time and patience.

Appreciation is key for good bread

Today we’re at the “Fringe Farming In London” event being run by @UKSustain & @MayorofLondon

Together we’re asking: can we support agro ecological food production in the capital and beyond?

#food #agroecology #farming #periurban
One key question is what is the role of #greenbelt - 22% of London’s land is greenbelt but it is largely seen as a place of recreation rather than as a place of production
Brian from @organiclea suggests the idea of not just a Garden City or a Nation Park City but a Market Garden City....,

To build the workforce of the future, we need to revolutionize how we learn
» weforum.org/agenda/2019/09…
We've entered the Fourth Industrial Revolution. We're living in a world in which it's predicted that 20-50% of tasks will be replaced by machines and #AI.
“If we do not change the way we teach, we’re going to be in trouble”. Ma
The knowledge-based approach of “200 years ago”, would "fail our kids", who would never be able to compete with machines. Children should be taught “#softskills” like independent thinking, values & teamwork.
Currently around 63% of students withdrawal. Scott Bolland explores the science of learning, the mismatch with how we teach, and the important role that #ArtificialIntelligence (#AI) could take in addressing the limitations in our current education system.

Thank you to all @BhamLawStudents @bhamlaw @artsatbham colleagues who came along to our launch of the #LawTalkBLS Legal Comms exhibition of student work 2019/20. Hope you enjoyed it as much as I did. Here’s some pictures from the event and, most importantly, the student POWs 1/x
The #LawTalkBLS module allows @BhamLawStudents to choose an area of law they want to research, develop a message from that research to communicate to an audience of their choice and then produce a ‘piece of work’ (POW) in a format to allow best communication of the same 2/x
Work exhibited this year includes interpretative dance, slam poem, blog, Legal Design, infographic, video, case note, street law presentation & research memorandum. Actual POW’s & student reflections on the same #LegalEd #CreativePedagogies #AuthenticAssessment 3/x

Hard factual headlines will follow this one:

"Tories have maxed up UK state debt by 2.5 times in just 9 and half years!" This is unprecedented in peacetime!

1/15
"Despite #Tory #Lies to the contrary? UK #economy is flat on its back, and likely to fall further - GDP was just 0.1% in the 6 months to 30sep19 being our worst showing since the financial crash!"

2/15
GDP(Gross Domestic Product) = total output of UK #economy, on which vital tax-take depends. HMG needs our tax (from companies, employees, householders) to fund OUR public services. Flat GDP growth (low % uplift) means less capability to fund services on which we depend!

My #CSPC2019 live tweeting #THREAD starts here!

I'll reply to this tweet w/ each panel I attend, creating a thread under each w/ live notes

My schedule: 🔗cspc2019.sched.com/shawnmcguirk

And, ICYMI, see the new CSPC magazine for my op-ed about @DSP_SPE & #CapacityBuilding in #scipol!
I wasn't intending on tweeting the symposium, but 2 really good points on skills:

🔹 For communications, the ability to be brief (tweet length summaries!) is key

🔹 Universities should promote organic mentorship by leveraging alumni office, get alums to meet students over ☕!
🔹 Skills development has strong socio-economic dimension. Accessibility to good schooling even as early as Kindergarten can have large impacts later in life. The foundation of transferable (read: critical) skills stays with you as you later develop expertise.

The US job market is broken for tens of millions.

Workers bear the risks/debt of education mismatch, get 'screened out' of better jobs if they lack costly degrees, face huge barriers to gain new skills.

@guardian gave me 500 words to say how to fix it.👇🏾
theguardian.com/commentisfree/…
@guardian Opportunity Marketplace: re-wired labor market rules & tools to empower Americans without 4-year degrees to earn more in better jobs, gaining new skills w/lower risk & higher reward.

Millions of STARs (skilled through alternative routes) need their chance to shine. #futureofwork
@guardian Policy elements?
1. Fund growth of any learning institutions delivering wage gains for low-income workers.

2. Entitle working learners to 6-month income support in free, debt-free, or de-risked “last mile” training.

3. Reward in tax code employers' training for portable skills.

#InfluencerMarketing #MaziHelps
What's a Brand?
A brand is a product, service, or concept that is publicly distinguished from other products, services, or concepts so that it can be easily communicated and usually marketed. A brandname is the name of the distinctive product, service, or concept. #DigitalMarket
So what's Branding?🙃
The marketing practice of creating a name, symbol or design that identifies and differentiates a product from other products. An effective brand strategy gives you a major edge in increasingly competitive markets.#InfluencerMarketing #MaziHelps #TweetForChng

IBM is accused of firing older workers. This is really about money - and doesn't just apply to IBM. Many companies sneakily create practices, communications & policies (like not subsidizing family health coverage)to discourage hiring older workers.


2/7
Age discrimination is especially common in #tech, where appearing "cool" carries a premium for recruiting top grads & younger talent.

In most careers, there comes an inflection point where junior employees can do the same job (or ~80% of it) for way less.

3/7
Sadly, to companies we're no more than "human resources," so employees must make themselves indispensable, esp. as their salaries creep up.

How?

1) Develop a unique expertise: be known for it. Could be anything from a coding language to ideas generation to great #design.

Threat Hunting In #CyberSecurity : Waiting for an alert can be too dangerous.
Threat hunting means to proactively search for malware or attackers that are hiding in your network — and may have been there for some time.
Most time, the goals of these malware or attackers can be to quietly siphoning off data, patiently listening in for confidential information, or working their way through the network looking for credentials powerful enough to steal key information.

Hello #BIWisdom tribe, and welcome to our weekly discussion.
This week on #BIWisdom I’m excited to discuss #skills for #data and #Analytics.
This is a favorite #BIWisdom topic of mine, because prior to my #Analytics journey I was a teacher in the UK. I’ve written about it a little on LinkedIn linkedin.com/pulse/positive…

The channel disruption is now extending into Belgium! @FEBETRA colleague Isabelle de Maegt explains how much this is costing hauliers. vrt.be/vrtnws/en/2019… @newsfromfta #Calais #Brexit
This was the scene this morning on the A16 between Dunkirk and Calais. Road haulage not moving at all. #Brexit #Calais
It must also be highlighted that the drivers of these vehicles had no apparent access to sanitary installations such as toilets. And people ask why #freight industry faces such a #skills shortage when conditions such as these can appear overnight.

This #BIWisdom Friday I'd like to explore concepts of a #DataCulture. What do *you* think it is? How is it sustained by #Success and #Value? Does support from #BILeadership with a #CDO help? How important are the #Data #skills (maybe especially Literacy)? Join is at 1PM EST
Just a few minutes until this week's #BIWisdom. Join us to discuss #Data #culture . What might it be, how do you use it, how can you value it, or know if it is working.
Happy #BIWisdom to us all. I hope everyone had a fine week.

Born & raised in #Fanar #Lebanon, a tiny country in the middle east with a lot to offer. I always had a positive outlook on life maybe because of the culture or values🤷‍♀️.
If you don't know #Lebanon or a #lebanese then you should start mingling 🤣
@IWS_Network #VoicesIWS
I grew up surrounded by a loving, joking & tough type of family that always support each other even amidst fighting. You can imaging being 4 kids in different age groups can cause a lot of fights growing up 😂 #siblingsfight #family #VoicesIWS
@IWS_Network
I have my issues🤷‍♀️! I always wanted to prove myself & make my family proud(2nd child). A pressure that was just in my head; they were always proud of us. I wanted to grow up to be a doctor or an army officer like my dad. Let's just say I changed my mind! #VoicesIWS @IWS_Network
