Brunei Young Leaders Convention 2018, organized by AlHuffaz Management and Generasi Bekarih, led by member of Legislative Council, Yang Berhormat Awang Iswandy bin Ahmad has started yesterday, 7 August at Goldstone Ballroom, Centrepoint Hotel, Gadong. Present as the guest of honour for the launching ceremony and presentation of appreciation certificates for the supporters and sponsors were the Minister of Prime Minister’s Office, Yang Berhormat Dato Seri Setia Haji Awang Abdul Mokti bin Haji Mohammad Daud.

Attending the launching ceremony were also Yang Berhormat Siti Rozaimeriyanty binti DSLJ Haji Abdul Rahman, Yang Berhormat Nik Hafimi binti Abdul Haadii and Managing Director of Yayasan Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah, Dato Paduka Awang Eddie bin Dato Paduka Haji Sunny. Recital of Surah Al-Fatihah and Doa Selamat was led by the vice co-chairperson, Ustaz Haji Mohammad Loqman Al-Hakim bin Haji Hamdan.

He mentioned in his speech that in order to shape the future of the country, youth should grab any opportunities, explore and always look for any opportunities that were offered. Youth were encouraged to take a deeper understanding of ‘Belia Aset Negara’ because youth are the valuable future assets which would determine the strength and leadership of the future generation as well as the country.

“Kenali siapa kita dan jangan lupa asal usul diri kita. Negara Brunei Darussalam adalah negara yang memegang teguh falsafah dan konsep Melayu Islam Beraja, sebagai sebuah Negara Zikir dan ‘Baldatun Thayyibatun Warabbun Ghafur’. Kukuhkan dan kekalkan nilai-nilai keBruneian dan jati diri sebagai bangsa Brunei dalam diri para belia kerana ianya mampu memupuk dan menjiwai rasa kepunyaan atau sense of belonging, dan menanam semangat patriotism yang kukuh. Itulah calak Brunei, itulah purih Brunei. Dengan adanya sikap dan sifat semacam ini, maka sudah tentu para belia tidak akan mudah terkeluar dari ‘Acuan KeBruneian’ dan jangan mudah hanyut atau tergelincir dari ‘Landasan keBruneian’,” he added.

The ceremony proceeded with a keynote on Wawasan Brunei 2035 which was then delivered by Administrative Officer Special Grade of Sekretariat Tetap Wawasan Brunei 2035, Yang Mulia Muhammad Aziman bin Haji Awang Nasir.

Youth snapshot was then conducted by Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sports. In the afternoon, the convention continued with a session titled “Be The Change”, held by Centre for Strategic and Policy Studies (CSPS). The first day ended with a networking session for the mentors and all participants.

A total of 200 participants, aged between 18 to 40 years old are taking part in the convention which will continue for three days until 9 August 2018.

Brunei Young Leaders Convention 2018 is held for the first time and it aims to deliver accurate and updated information regarding Wawasan Brunei 2035, to unite relevant youth development agencies as well as to provide platform for youth to carry out projects or programs that might support and achieve Wawasan Brunei 2035.

In addition to attending forums, participants also have the opportunity to interact and build network with the mentors which comprised of experienced youth regarding their future plans prior to attending the convention.

Inspire to Launch Masterclass Series

Written by Rano Iskandar on . Posted in community, lifestyle, Business, Social News

 


Shaun Hoon, the founder of Inspire magazine, will be sharing a compilation of the most powerful stories and lessons learned from the publications
 

Inspire will be launching the first of the 8 Masterclass Series starting Monday, 18th September, for the next 4 weeks. The organizer will be kicking off with the title on “The Art of Selling” by sharing about why the top sales professionals succeed, and interesting observations such as the similarities and differences between selling a pair of $100 shoes and a $1 million oversea property from personal experience.

The Masterclass Series will be conducted by Shaun Hoon, the founder of Inspire magazine, who will be sharing a compilation of the most powerful stories and lessons learned from the publications. According to Shaun, this is an initiative to help counter the wary mindset faced by business owners today, who are going through the current economic challenges. Shaun noted: “We can either sit there and whine about the situation, or come together to remove the scarcity mindset through education and collective thinking.”

What makes these Masterclasses unique is that unlike academic studies, they do not engage in discussing theories or hypotheticals. “Each Masterclass is guided by powerful stories of success and failures, for students to gain from the strategies that worked and learn through the lessons from prior mistakes, to level up their game.” According to Shaun.

“It is my objective to conduct these Masterclasses in a small, intimate setting to create the perfect conditions to help attendees to broaden and foster a growth mindset through two ways interactions, whilst being supported by likeminded people that will encourage and make each other accountable for succeeding.” He further added.

These Masterclasses are for the people whom the organizer describes as “the students of life”, those who want to find purpose and give meaning to their work, change the world for the better and those who are serious about lifting their games.

What attendees are expected to Learn from these Masterclasses include:

• How to be a masterful communicator.
• How successful people think and function.
• How to create business opportunities out of nothing.
• The life skills required to overcome any adversity.
• How to discover your value, and life purpose and how you can make a difference.

According to Shaun, what makes these Masterclasses valuable are not just the lessons from his own experiences, but some of the sharing of the most powerful stories and strategies used by the most successful people whom he interviewed in Brunei and around the world for Inspire magazine. Some of them includes: Robert Kiyosaki, Fan Bingbing, Marshall Goldsmith, Shila Amzah, Dato Timothy Ong and Wu Chun.

The organiser will be giving out 5 complimentary slots for each session to students and individuals who are financially strapped. You can download the full details about the Masterclasses at www.YesInspire.com/training. There are limited seats on each section and you can contact 717 4286 or email shaun@catalyst.com.bn for bookings or details.
