[MaGIC Webinar] To Gig or Not to Gig - Engaging with Online Freelancers

In light of the ongoing Movement Control Order (MCO) and MaGIC’s recent survey having conclusive data that only 2.9% of start-ups are confident in surviving through MCO - MaGIC will be bringing you its Webinar series, a platform for online live sessions with industry experts and entrepreneurs to shed light on the various ways to strategise and thrive in a time of crisis, such as the one brought about by the COVID-19.

Each topic in the series will dive into the different areas of business and offer tools and insights for business sustainability, followed by a Q&A session. We at MaGIC will strive to provide a platform of support for our entrepreneurs as best we can.

Our next speaker will be Dr Cynthia Ee. She has over 20 years’ international work experience, helming global and regional leadership roles with organisations such as Flex and Hewlett-Packard. She has been engaged by the United Nations World Food Programme as a Change Management Consultant, based in Rome, Italy.

Cynthia founded Clarus Consulting in 2014, a boutique training and consulting firm that helps leaders to discover, develop and articulate their value proposition globally. Clarus Consulting offers structured programmes in innovation, change management and communications.

The Session

The Uber-isation of our economy calls for new business models and new ways of working together. No longer do we need to hire a team of employees to work on a project when we can get domain experts across the globe. Yet many who jump on this trend are frustrated with the experience of engaging online freelancers - poor quality of output, communication breakdown or not meeting deadlines. Dr Cynthia Ee will discuss the topic by sharing her experience working virtually with global teams and her engagement with online freelancers.

Key Takeaways

  1. The benefits and challenges of engaging with online freelancers
  2. Effective communication with freelancers
  3. Managing communications with freelancers

Course Breakdown

  1. 30-40 minutes presentation
  2. 20-30 minutes Q&A
