Qq Thursday mini-seminar series launched

As an effort to further enhance capacity building through knowledge sharing in the Q-quatics workplace, the Thursday mini-seminar series was recently initiated by the Qq management. It is currently being planned and organized by the seminar committee, led by Kathy Reyes with members, Joann Glorioso, Isay Abucay and Martin Nevado, for the months of April to May of 2019. Each seminar is intended to be short, preferably with a 15-minute presentation of a predetermined topic and 15 minutes Q&A.

The pilot seminar was held on 4 April 2019 at 2:00-2:30 PM at the Qq headquarters, with Mr. Fred Lagasca as the resource person. Fred is Q-quatics’ Computer Maintenance Technologist, who is also responsible for the administration of the email accounts in Google Suite.
