Developing Hybrid Careers with Philippa Penfold

By Ling Ling

Career development used to be a straight and predictable path. If you had chosen a degree in accounting, you'll become an accountant. If you chose a degree in medicine, you'll eventually become a doctor. In recent years, we see careers such as social media manager, data scientist, blockchain developer, fintech, AR artist and many others emerging where no degree had existed that could prepare anyone for. No longer are careers are about climbing ladders. Rather, it has become a mosaic of skills and interests. A hybrid of multiple skill sets converge to create new roles that never existed before. Therein lies endless possibilities in shaping one's career. Joining us is Philippa Penfold, simply known as Pip. Philippa (Pip) had 20 years corporate HR experience before embarking on her hybrid career journey. In the course of Pip’s HR work, she spent endless hours supporting the learning and development of employees and has seen the change from career ladders to hybrid careers first-hand. Today Pip brings together HR & Tech through Research and Education to help HR build future workplaces we all want to work in.
