  • Tun Dr. Mahathir, I did return to Malaysia to give back and transfer my expertise twice for a total of 20 years.

    I became a BIG fish in Hong Kong and China in five short years by the end of 2005.

    But I remained a SMALL fish in Malaysia for 13 years by the end of 2018.

    Until today I have NOT signed a single Government-Linked Corporation (GLC) such as FELDA, Petronas, Tenaga Nasional, Malaysia Airlines, DRB-Hicom, Sime Darby, etc.

    In Hong kong I signed up:
    * The worlds top brands such as Coca-Cola China, Coats China, Gap, Nestle, Sheraton.
    * Thousands of top managers attended my ChangeU Public and In-House PowerWorkshops such as the Hong Kong Jockey Club, HSBC, and Hong Kong Airport Services.

    Unlike Hong Kong where it is one of the top 3 most free trade markets and a fair and equal playing field based on meritocracy, I was constantly hitting the unfair Non-Malay Glass Ceiling of Malaysia.

    Like Robert Kuok, and Anthony Tan (Grab) who moved their HQ to Hong Kong and Singapore where "Malay Kulitfiaction" does not apply; I too moved my HQ to Hong Kong & Shenzhen, China's Silicon Valley - with an Administrative Back Office in KL.
