Dananjaya coming to Brunei

Written by Rano Iskandar. Posted in News, RA News

 

Dananjaya coming soon 
 

Dananjaya Hettiarachchi recently shared some tips on presentation posted in Business Insider

 

A world champion. A motivational speaker. An individual who can unlock something special in you. His journey has been inspiring to many from the failures to the successes that he never thought he would have dreamt of.

Hailed from Sri Lanka, I only came to know of the lad back in August 2014 when I attended an International Convention (Toastmasters) in Kuala Lumpur and we met again back in Kuching in May 2015. The KL trip was something that I wouldn’t forget for two reasons – supporting our Brunei Speakers’ Club finalists Chris Woo (the best achievement for a Brunei toastmasters club) and a world champion speech by Dananjaya Hettiarachchi.

Even to this very day, his tagline “I See Something” has become a household phrase in toastmasters meeting or speeches and it was the most talked-about speeches of 2014. I would considered myself fortunate to be one of the audience among the thousands that attended the finals of the World Championship of Public Speaking 2014 in Kuala Lumpur because I never felt that “sold” in listening to speeches. Dananjaya was simply inspirational and charismatic on stage and I knew the finalists then would have a hard time stealing his thunder.

From that moment, I wish I could bring him to Brunei one day and inspire the youths in our country. After months of planning, I was over the moon when I heard the news that he accepted our invitation to speak in Brunei Darussalam this coming October 2016. I’m truly grateful for Dananjaya to schedule his time for the Brunei Convention 2016, knowing that his schedules are very packed with seminars and talks.

So my buddy Dananjaya, on behalf of the organizing committee of the Brunei Conference 2016, I would like to extend our deepest appreciation for making your short trip to Brunei possible. We are ready to host you and welcome you with great hospitality. A big thanks to Shawn Cassidy Narcis for making his trip possible.

Don’t forget to catch the video of Dananjaya Hettiarachchi on the link video I have posted on this post. It may be a short one but it was surely inspiring and compelling towards the audience. Even his winning speech has garnered 1 million views on youtube. Now that he’s making his way to Brunei, what are you waiting for? For more details, you can click here and I would highly recommend you to attend this conference.

For those interested in attending the Brunei Conference 2016, you can reach me at ranoadidas gmail.com or whatsapp me at +68738677773. There are still seats available for the 3 day convention. There will also be other speakers such as Mohamed Murad (Past International President) and Willie Jones (World Champion of Public Speaking 1996). Not forgetting our local speakers, Soon Loo, CEO of Darussalam Enterprise (DARe) and Stuart Lee of Rhymin Partners. I have also finally secured another speaker and he is no other than the reigning World Championship of Public Speaking 2016, Darren Tay, who was crowned in August in Washington, D.C.

 


Believe it or not, I want to be a champion like Dananjaya. Taken back in May 2015 when he was a keynote speaker in Kuching

Dan the Man 
 

He’s known as “Dan” by many and I’ve been following his journey on IG @dananjaya_h and Facebook and even on the internet. Though he was a champion two years ago, he still is one of the most sought speakers around the world. He has been traveling around the world and his next date will be Brunei before he heads off to Amsterdam (Holland), Hiroshima (Japan) and Richmond (USA) to cap off the year. Awesome!!!

If you meet him in person, only one word to describe him – charismatic (and super cool). He has been in a journey of toastmasters or public speaking for 10 years. He loves to inspire the thousands in bettering their communication skills and he is very popular in schools.

The Brunei Conference committee is very privilege to have his presence in Brunei on 28th October to 29th October. We are certain that his presence and his keynote speech will have a positive ripple effect on the audience and hoping for more youth to attend the conference.

If you are interested, please reach me at 8677773. We are selling tickets by next week (mid September) and the prices are BND 120 (29th October, Saturday session 9am to 4pm) and BND 50 for the Speech contest (30th October, Sunday 8am). If you are interested also in attending the dinner, it will be BND 50 for Friday, 28th October.

This is slated to be the biggest toastmasters event ever hosted in Brunei Darussalam because we have three world champion speakers – Willie Jones, Dan the Man and reigning champion Darren Tay. So yes, sometime to look forward to and the target audience will be the youth, working class, teachers, parents, students, professionals, government officials and entrepreneurs.

A big thank you also to the sponsors, partners and supporters of this event – Progresif, Brunei Tourism under the Ministry of Primary Resources and Tourism, RYS Entertainment, Armtrix Enterprise, NBT, BIG magazine, The Brunei Times, AKK Design, The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf, Rizqun International Hotel and many more (to be finalized). I would also like to acknowledge the Ministry of Home Affairs for approving this event.

So once again, If you are interested, please reach me at 8677773 and you can read more details here on our official website.

 


When you are climbing a mountain there is a summit , in life all you find is an endless wall. You can take the easy way and slide endlessly into the darkness or take the hard way and climb into the eternal light. Either way, there is no end to how far you can fall nor how high you can climb – Dananjaya Hettiarachchi. Image taken of Dananjaya Hettiarachchi’s Facebook page.

Mistake is your best teacher 
 

[Tuesday 8:04am] Aloha, everyone. It’s good to be back typing once more. Things have been just fine and dandy. Not reaching excellence just yet but not too bad. I just feel I’m at a plateau stage right now and needed a sense of zest to kickstart something. That’s the expectation that I put upon myself and sometimes I just wait.. and wait for that opportunity. Only to realise that the old Rano doesn’t wait. The old him would crave and hunt for opportunities, create them for new challenges.

This is what most of us are afraid – to fall or fail. I was afraid too. If you never challenged yourself, your personal growth will be limited. I was spoon-fed, pampered and being stuck in that comfort zone for many, many years. Getting out of that habit won’t be an overnight task but it takes one small step to slowly grow. Just build those steps and slowly you will discover new things and it will be a wonderful ride. It’s ok to make mistakes or fail because there are more of your lessons rather than failures.

At this moment, I would say I am still in my “newer” comfort zone. I have raised the bar for myself and yet again I shared about my expectations I planted to myself. My mind is ready for a new challenge. Just waiting for my heart to be realigned with my thoughts. I will break out of my comfort zone. Yes, one step at a time. It’s a journey, not a destination. Have a great week, peeps 😀

 


Ah, a great reminder not to stay too long in that comfort zone. The key word I see there is “create”. So let’s not just stop there. Do something. Anything.
 


One of my role models, Dananjaya, World Champion of Public Speaking 2014, and he still creates that impact to this very day. I’m proud to say that he will be coming to Brunei this October because one big reason – “I see something in him”.
 

Check out the amazing winning speech by Dananjaya that won the hearts of many.

 

 

 

How Microsoft has evolved 
 


The resellers and partners of Microsoft during the educational session hosted by Concepts Technologies and Microsoft (Brunei) at Brilliance Hall, Concepts Technologies this morning
 


Joneil Joseph, Software Licensing Specialists, Concepts Technologies, sharing knowledge on licensing
 

We have been familiar with Microsoft for many, many years. Anyone with a PC or even a Mac would have experienced Microsoft products. I grew up with Microsoft Windows 3.0 during my Aussie days and now it has evolved to Windows 10 (the best Windows yet). My biggest disappointment of the Windows series was the Vista version. Though I have shifted using a different operating system, the latest Windows 10 have given much confidence to end users.

Today Concepts Technologies hosted a session with their local partners on educating the licensing, agreement, renewals of subscription on Microsoft software and products. The presentation was led by Danial Azizan Abdullah Henry, the newly appointed SME Lead for Microsoft Brunei, where he shared the benefits of having cloud services through means of Microsoft products.

The other sessions were then conducted by Joneil Joseph, Software Licensing Specialist, Concept Technologies and Ardoni Siregar, Manager of Software Distribution, Concepts Technologies. I realised that the end users of Microsoft products still have much to know about the other benefits. We always have this perception that Microsoft products are expensive and difficult with many options available (in terms of agreements and licensing).

Today I learnt that Microsoft can make life easier with the multiple benefits. It’s really hard to explain here because they have many categories when it comes to licensing, tailoring especially to your business needs. Corporate companies will see a huge benefit as it can be a cost effective measure. I also learnt about Software Assurance where end users can enjoy free upgrades especially. As you know that Microsoft keeps upgrading their software, so you won’t have to pay extra within your subscription period.

Let’s hope during the session that the resellers of Microsoft software will have a better idea on how to pass the knowledge to the end users. The thing that sold me with Microsoft is the ability to store your data on the cloud with a space of 1TB. Now would be very, very ideal for me as I’m on-the-go all the time.
