Students LEAD by example in Malaysia

The LEAD Malaysia ‘Student Leadership Convention’ held at the University of Malaysia’s main campus in Kuala Lumpur proved a huge hit for both speakers and students alike.

The three-day event (11-14 August), which was attended by around 130-140 specially selected students – both graduates and postgraduates from different colleges and universities in Malaysia – focused on real world leadership challenges and holistic career development.

Taking the lead in career development

Vishnu Annapareddy of Centurion Organisation, a partner to Appco Group Asia, comments, “It was a huge honour for me to speak about leadership in 2016 to our leaders of the future. We held an interactive Q&A session at the end, which gave us an opportunity to speak about what we do at Appco Group Asia.”

The students benefited from a number of talks on career development and counselling. The former Malaysian professional footballer turned TV sports broadcaster, Sergebeth ‘Shebby’ Singh, was guest of honour.

“I have lot of respect for students taking the initiative to organise such informative talks. It shows a real desire to get ahead in their careers,” adds Annapareddy.
