To propagate a culture of innovation within Malaysian organizations, Alpha Catalyst Consulting with the support of MDeC (Multimedia Development Corporation) organized the InnovAsian Forum. This provided a platform for leaders from innovative Malaysian-based organizations to share their experiences, from successes to missed steps. The 1-day event was attended by 100 people, including members of the corporate and public sectors, academics and entrepreneurs. Highlights of the event were sessions by Azran Osman Rani (CEO AirAsia X) and Adzhar Ibrahim (Head of people AirAsia Berhad and previous Human Resource Director DiGi Berhad).
Other speakers were no less engaging, with Eduardo, Principal from Monitor Group (Singapore) sharing the global scene in innovation followed by Nik Ahmad Faizul from MIGHT who shared the Foresight study of the Malaysian landscape. The Chairman of Technip Malaysia shared practices within the Oil & Gas industry while Saliman Zainal shared the scene within Bank Rakyat. The format of the forum was made to be very lively with moderation and crowd-interaction from Kamarul Bahrin of Astro Awani.
