Active Tech Talk

Active Tech Talk

It was an honor to have a well-known running coach, Mr. David Shum to have a sharing session in Active Tech Talk that was held after the Run For Insurance 2019. Free admissions and lunch were provided for the participants.

Mr. David Shum is an accredited running coach for the Singapore Sports Council (SSC) and the International Association of Athletics Federation. David has competed in over 40 marathons and Ultras (50km). Apart from that, he was also an author of Just One More Step, a book of running-related tips ranging from shoe selection to training programmes.  Instead of having the benefit all to himself, he also shared part of the incomes and donated to cancer society.

Furthermore, there was also an interesting Animation Workshop which was exhibited the first in the world geometric puzzle as known as Girih Geometric Puzzle. This activity was opened for public in order to introduce them to geometric puzzles. Besides, we also had Michael who personally taught 5 kids on how to create animation by using Microsoft PowerPoint. The fee for this workshop was RM100 and there was a 50% off for early birds.

As we all are aware of, PowerPoint has been a basic MS software that is commonly used by many. So, it is of significant advantage for the conservancy of the software especially to the youngsters as it can help them in future use since powerpoint is the fundamental skill and knowledge that is mostly used.
