Here’s some interesting news!
Nic has been invited to adjudge a business plan competition at the upcoming SGGS International Student Conference 2012.
This business conference for students, to be held from 26 to 30 May at the Copthorne Orchid Hotel, Penang, will bring together not only a business plan competition, workshops and a slew of interesting events but also showcase inspiring entrepreneur-speakers.
Among the speakers and guests include Lina Tan, the producer of the popular 3R TV programme; Datin Mina Cheah-Foong, the director of Rampai-Niaga which holds The Body Shop franchise in Malaysia; Jazz Tan of Penang Youth, a youth-targeted marketing and branding company, among others. The last I heard it also includes Anas Zubedy and our national astronaut.
Professor Dato’ Dr. Zainuddin Md Wazir, founder of Allianze University College of Medical Sciences, will be giving the keynote address at this event, held for the third time organized by the St George’s Girls School, a premier girls’ school in Penang.
SGGS International Student Conference 2012 is an international gathering of high school and college students with delegations from 18 countries.
Participants are exposed to the relevant skills and knowledge needed to become entrepreneurs. Themed “Innovation and Entrepreneurship”, the conference wants to show participants that there is truly more to a career than conventional ones and that entrepreneurship is a much more exciting path to follow! (Actually it is quite true!)
Doesn’t it sound like a fantastic conference for students? How I wish we had conferences like these when we were in school!
