Mdm Halimah Yacob shared her own experience as an example for her point on juggling time. She did not boast “Singaporeans should all learn from her”! To be honest. if we have a full-time job and 5 children, can we handle like how Mdm Halimah Yacob did? Some of us cannot even find the time despite having one or two children, let alone 5 like Mdm Halimah Yacob!
SINGAPORE – Be ready to learn new skills and be flexible in the face of a rapidly-changing economy, urged Speaker of Parliament Halimah Yacob on Saturday (Feb 25), even as she encouraged working adults to manage their time to balance family, work and studies.
“There will be many new changes caused by artificial intelligence, automation, computers… The most important question to ask yourself is, are you prepared for the change?” said Madam Halimah, who is also MP for Marsiling-Yew Tee GRC.
She was speaking at a Marsiling job fair focused on making sense of the SkillsFuture initiative which encourages employees to upgrade their skills.
