The Malaysian Institute of Management (MIM) will hold the inaugural Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad Leadership Series in its effort to increase the quality of leadership in Malaysia.
The event will bring together distinguished national and international personalities from the government, industry, education and civil society to share ideas and insights, as well as spark fresh thinking on global challenges and nation-building.
President Tun Mohammed Hanif Omar (picture) said MIM is committed to providing thought leadership around some of the most topical and crucial issues affecting Malaysia today.
“We recognise that the world is changing at an incredible speed and the old models of leadership no longer apply,” Mohammed Hanif said.
“MIM deeply cherishes Dr Mahathir’s long association with the institute as our honorary fellow.
“His wise leadership, dynamism and foresight have been a tremendous source of inspiration for all Malaysians,” he added.
“We are delighted that the prime minister has agreed to officiate the event and deliver the keynote address.”
Mohammed Hanif also said MIM believes there is currently a great opportunity to ensure the emergence of a generation of talented leaders to guide the country’s progress, and spur economic growth and shared prosperity.
The programme will be a platform to encourage interaction, and incubate strategies and solutions in a candid, open and constructive environment.
“MIM currently holds the president and secretariat office of the Asian Association of Management Organisations.
“This will give us the opportunity to extend this leadership series to the management fraternity in the region,” said Mohammed Hanif.
The full day event will be held on Dec 19 in Hotel Istana, Kuala Lumpur.
