Recent activities (January 2020 - February 2021)
During the lock-down (March - June 2020) continued pivoting toward data-centric on two lines, to leverage on my past experiences
_Line 1: business Updating cultural/organizational change activities, but focusing more on the controlling/governance side
_Line 2: technical Updating number crunching skills for decision support, but focusing on adding machine learning coordination/analysis skills
_Considering the potential long-term business and organizational impacts of COVID-19, followed training from Johns Hopkins and Imperial College on Coursera
