“I have already started maintaining a time diary at work, and the first two hours of my day is now used for networking with people – the ones I knew, but lost contact, and the new ones I meet. The physical office is closed for now and I have already discussed with supervisors to hold a small workshop at the office to share my ideas received from the training with my colleagues.”

“I  learned about the importance and challenges in an element of “follow-up” when maintaining a relationship with people outside the organisation that I belong to. And what surprised me was that other fellow reporters across the Asian region were feeling the same.”

Staff Reporter, The Korea Herald

“I was initially worried at how the workshop would work in a Zoom setting. I’m surprised at how great it was. I felt very connected to the other fellows, to the organisers and to the trainers and speakers. I learned so much and I look forward to seeing all of you in person. Very grateful for this wonderful experience. It’s been so inspiring. Thank you so much for taking such great care of us.”
