Industry Talk

A Good Start of the CEO Speaker Series

We are pleased to share that the APU Faculty of Business & Management (FBM) officially introduced the first Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Corporate Talk session titled, Journey from Tennis Court to Boardroom by Encik Azlan Abdullah, Managing Director/CEO of Melewar Industrial Corporations.           

The talk was well-received by approximately 200 students who came from different cultures and countries. The aim of the event was to foster the participation of academic communities with industry, so as to promote sustainable policies for worldwide business management. The one hour talk by Mr. Azlan has definitely created awareness of business-related problems especially in steel industry, motivated commitment at the highest level for their solution, and thus promote better management of business resources at various levels includes local, regional, national and international. 

 

Through this session, students gained more insights on how a steel company operates and are able to understand the reality of the steel industry rather than just understanding it through text books. Mr. Azlan also motivated the students that nothing is impossible and when we have a dream, always find ways to realize it. The students also express a sincere gratitude towards Mr.Azlan during the Q&A session for spending time in APU and sharing his valuable experience in the business industry.
