Dear Learn & Perform subscriber,

Here is the June e-news. Finally, the Asia HRDCongress 2010 is over. It was a great event. In my opinion, it was probably the best among all these years of Asia HRDCongress and the Trainers Meet Trainers. It was mage good largely due to the excellent quality of speakers and trainers. The Sarawak Government provided outstanding support. With the excitement of the World Cup football we also had a week of great learning

Here is this month’s e-news:

  • Asia HRDCongress 2010
  • A new book released on the Chief Minister of Sarawak
  • Stand Out and Move up

Asia HRDCongress 2010

Asia HRDCongress 2010 was held in the gorgeous and lavishly green city of Kuching, Sarawak on the island of Borneo. Sarawak, Malaysia’s largest state welcomed delegates from 17 countries. 39 speakers excelled in sharing new ideas. The Asia HRDCongress organised by the SMR HR Group and CMM, the Sarawak Government’s training arm was defined by the excellent quality of speakers. Prof Thiagi, Karen Lawson, Jim Smith Jr, Scott McKain led the quality of speaking talent.

The Asia HRDCongress Awards was without any parallel. The State Chief Minister received the Lifetime Award while the Ministry of Works, Bahrain and the Executive Chairman of Westport, Malaysia received the Awards for contribution to Society. Four organisations and 8 individuals received their

awards for contribution to Human Capital.
The video and the learning materials are expected to be posted on You Tube and on our website. For more details, please  email

A new book released on the Chief Minister of Sarawak

With the sole intention of chronicling the Chief Minister’s Human Capital plan over the last three decades, Dr. Sabariah, the CEO of CMM and I worked on this book. The book outlines the various human capital programmes implemented by the Chief Minister. The state has just launched an ambitious programme SCORE – the Sarawak Corridor of Renewable Energy that is expected to create another 1.5 million jobs and make Sarawak the richest State in Malaysia by 2030. For more details, please email

Stand Out and Move up

Scott McKain’s closing session was truly an inspiring one. None moved to catch a flight or a train. They stayed to hear every word from Scott. Scott McKain’s captivating clearly revealed how to create more compelling connections between you and your customers, and how to stand out and move up, regardless of the economic climate in your industry. To gain access to his presentation, please email

Have a great month ahead.
