PwC Philippines virtually launched the Digital Academy to all partners and staff on 7 July via Google Meet.
The Digital Academy is an upskilling program that is part of the PwC network’s Digital Transformation strategy to enable PwC Professionals to solve complex problems with higher efficiency. It consists of a series of workshops in data analytics (data wrangling, visualization, dashboarding, and storytelling) and robotic process automation (RPA) using global-market leading tools.
The internal kickoff event was jampacked with insights from the firm’s leaders, namely:
Chief Digital Officer and Tax Partner Carlos Carado II
Learning & Development (L&D) Leader and Chief Internal Auditor Geraldine Apostol
Deals & Corporate Finance Managing Partner, Data Analytics and Markets Leader Mary Jade Roxas-Divinagracia
Consulting Lead Partner Robbie Bassig
Assurance Managing Partner Aldie Garcia
Chairman Emeritus Alex Cabrera, who was in attendance, was cited for his vision of, and starting, the firm’s digital transformation journey during his term as Chairman. Luke Warwick from PwC Australia, with his lead role in PwC Asia Pacific region’s digital transformation, was the event’s special guest.
Also featured were Digital Academy Batch 1 graduates PwC Business Services Philippines (PwC BSP) Manager Alvin Mendoza, Assurance Senior Associate Pretty Faigmani, and Tax Senior Associate Audrey Arocha. They individually presented their successful projects and stories after completing the program.
An energizing and competitive Digital Quiz Bee capped the kickoff. All lines of service were represented, including two groups from the Brunei practice (PricewaterhouseCoopers Services). Assurance A landed in first place, followed by PwC BSP and Deals & Corporate Finance.
L&D Director Ron Melendres hosted the event, with RPA Lead Senior Manager Jay Ogayon as moderator, and L&D Associate Sharland Malazarte as event director.
