“One has to adopt the approach of learning from other people across boundaries and differences in order to remain competitive. I believe this programme is one of the best initiatives to prepare a platform for information and knowledge exchange. This will also enhance the learning experience of our participants as this gives them exposure to learn from successful individuals and academicians which are a tough chance to come by”.

Dr Gwee Sai Ling
(General Manager of Penang Youth Development Corporation)
