AnitaB.org Chennai Meetup (Virtual)

November 27, 2020 · 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm IST

Welcome to the next virtual meetup of AnitaB.org Chennai.
This event presents topics that are immediately relevant in the times we live in today.
– Robotic Process Automation (RPA)
Robotic Process Automation is all about handling repetitive business processes using software robots to perform tasks, parse information and provide error free responses round the clock.
– Mentoring Skills
Mentoring / coaching is sharing knowledge, skills and life experience to guide another to help them reach their full potential and more.
The event has the right ingredients for #morelearning and #moreconnections and the best part is you can attend from your systems right from your home or workplace.
