Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia | 23 - 28 July 2017
MODULE ONE: CHALLENGING BUSINESS ORTHODOXY
GIFT’s inaugural Malaysia Young Leaders Programme (YLP) builds on our experience conducting close to 50 executive education programmes across the region.
During Module One Participants engage in candid discussion, debate and role play related to the trends and changes shaping Malaysia’s future to uncover new ideas for action. Facilitators and guest speakers convey a new narrative on Malaysia, ASEAN and the world, and on the roles of key sectors in our society.
INTERIM PERIOD: TRANSITION INTO MODULE TWO
In between Module One and Module Two, participants will have the opportunity to carry out research and due diligence for the upcoming field project. Team Assignments facilitate the transition into Module Two, and are designed to further the group’s understanding of the issues surrounding the field project.
MODULE TWO: FIELD PROJECT ON COMMUNITY BASED SPORTS HUBS IN MALAYSIA
Participants will apply their leadership skills towards producing a report to launch a network of community based sports hubs across Malaysia. Participants will channel their skills and work collaboratively to develop ideas for how sports hubs can be practical and financially viable, whilst help to promote entrepreneurship, youth engagement and social cohesion. By constructively bringing together different members of the community, the YLP seeks to create a more inclusive and healthy environment and introduces a new model for consultation and public engagement.
OPEN FORUM: COMMUNITY SPORTS HUBS FOR ALL

Venue: Bukit Jalil National Stadium, VIP Lounge, (Entrance through Carpark C)
In 2016, Malaysia was known to be ’Asia’s Obese Nation’ with an overweight prevalence of 44.2% among adults- nearly half of the 30 million populace. Since then a great emphasis has been placed by the Ministry of Youth & Sports (KBS) on creating a sports culture among Malaysians to promote a healthy lifestyle as well as achieve excellence and recognition in sports at national and international levels.
Despite these efforts, developments in the sports sector have not translated into a general behavioural change within Malaysian society; sports and physical activity are not yet anchored into the culture, habits and lifestyles of a majority of Malaysians.
GIFT ASEAN's inaugural Malaysia Young Leaders Programme is assisting to address this issue through the development of a network community based sports hubs for Malaysians using a sustainable business model that is financially viable and socially inclusive.
You are invited to attend our free public forum on 28 July to hear recommendations from aspiring young business leaders all across Malaysia on strengthening Malaysia’s sporting culture and join the discussion on the creation of a network of community based sports hubs for KBS. Guest of Honour includes Minister of Youth & Sports, YB Khairy Jamaluddin.
