Taha Bawa is the co-founder and CEO of Goodwall, a next-generation community for students and young professionals to connect and discover earning and learning opportunities. He leads Goodwall's strategy and team.
Taha’s forum keynote will be about Helping the next generation of international students fulfill their potential in an ever-changing learning and earning landscape
The next generation communicates, consumes information and makes decisions completely differently. COVID-19 has accelerated these changes, as well as the transformation of the job market. This address will explore the skills and educational achievements needed in our new reality, how to leverage the strengths of global citizenship and what paths can help this generation maximise their potential and achieve their career objectives. It will also discuss how counsellors and admission officers can adapt their guidance, messaging and communication to be most effective in these changing times.
