On 10th December, I was invited by the University of Malta to give a lecture on business skills in the work place. The lecture was part of the DegreePlus programme, which provides young people with practical skills and formative experiences. I like this programme – it always strikes me that most people are totally unprepared for the ‘shock of entry’ in the work place.
I used a Microsoft-sponsored study on essential skills in business as the catalyst for the talk, grounding the principles in real-life stories. I’ve embedded the slides here, as they may have some relevance to a wider audience.
