Talk by Dato Zarul Ahmad Zulkifli @ APU

On the 4th of November 2014 (Tuesday), we are honoured to have the presence of Dato’ Zarul Ahmad Zulkifli, Chairman of Zenith-BUCG Sdn Bhd, to conduct a talk titled “Project Funding Strategy and Funding Structure of Mega Project” for students from the School of Accounting, Finance and Quantitative Studies (SAFIQS). The talk recorded an attendance of more than 110 participants. Dato’ Zarul, also the Chairman of Consortium Zenith-BUCG Sdn Bhd, shared his valuable experiences to the audience regarding the major project of his company, the Penang Undersea project.

Apart from talking about the challenges that he met, Dato’ Zarul also shared the funding mechanism which he had used while securing the project. Although the session only lasted for one hour, it was very informative and students have gained a lot of knowledge from the session. Students were participative in the Q&A session as well, and this had made the session more interesting and meaningful. Dato’ Zarul ended the talk with a piece of useful advice to our students: “Mix with successful people, be honest in their dealings, and have credible mentors as a way forward in achieving success in their lives.”
