Webinar: The Importance of Soft Skills in an AI World

As artificial intelligence reshapes industries, disrupts sectors, and automates what were once considered secure jobs, a crucial question arises: What skills will define the successful professionals of tomorrow, and how can we best prepare students to develop those skills?

In our latest webinar, we hosted a roundtable discussion to explore the enduring importance of soft skills in a world increasingly dominated by AI technologies.


This webinar discusses:

  • Why soft skills are becoming even more critical as AI continues to evolve.

  • How educators and advisors can integrate soft skills training with technical education.

  • Strategies for students and professionals to enhance their soft skills in preparation for a dynamic and unpredictable job market.

  • The impact of soft skills on career longevity and success in an AI-driven economy.
