Facebook Badge ChenChow Yeoh

The One World Media Awards are made up of a range of categories, and each has its own jury panel. Right now we're looking for four young people to judge one of the awards - the Children's Rights Award, sponsored by Unicef. It's for media that acknowledges the voices of young people in the developing world. In 2009, the winner was Saving Africa's Witch Children, a documentary on Channel 4 about children branded as 'witches' in parts of Nigeria. Could you be one of our young judges? We're running a competition to find them. What you could win If you're one of the four selected young jurors for 2010, we'll let you know in late March. Then, here's what will happen: you will be sent about 10 entries for the Children's Rights Award in early April. These will be a mixture of TV and radio programmes, plus written articles, and you'll have 3-4 weeks to watch/read/listen to them we will invite you to London from 25-27 April, with all expenses paid for, to take part in a series of activities organised for you. You'll visit live TV news programmes as they go out, visit newspaper offices, and meet leading journalists and filmmakers to hear their experiences of covering overseas stories on 27th April you will take part in a jury meeting to select the winner of the Children's Rights Award you will then come to the One World Media Awards ceremony, on 22nd June in London, and present the Children's Rights Award.

Live & Inspire Series - Dato' Sri Abdul Wahid Omar

Zi Hong

Congrats to Tim Fernandez and his team for bringing out yet another successful Live & Inspire Series, and today, it featured Dato' Sri Abdul Wahid Omar - CEO of Maybank (Former CEO of Telekom Malaysia and Former CEO of UEM)

ZX Ong Blog Archive 2014 (1) 2013 (2)

To join Live & Inspire Series' Facebook Page, it is at http://www.facebook.com/liveandinspire .

2012 (9) For today's talk, am going to copy the sharings that are posted in the Live & Inspire Facebook page for all to learn. 1. 9th out of 11 children. Had a tough childhood. First break through was going into boarding school MRSM Seremban. 2. Leaders are not born. Each and everyone of us has a chance to be a leader. 3. Qualities of a good leader : A visionary, an inspiring person, knowledgeable, a person open and prepared to learn from team member. 4. No corporation can claim to be Regional Leader if home base is not stable 5. I wanted to create changes so that they didn't live in poverty anymore. 6. I have made mistakes before but what is important is for me to learn from them. Some of them are personal in nature and some of them are from my career. I don't have any regrets. I'm so blessed in my life. 7. I'm the worst example of work/life balance. I work from 12 to 16 hours a day. I want to make sure this year I do not stay in the office past 12 midnight. (Having said that, I have stayed past midnight twice already this month.) Though I work hard, I am grateful to spend time with my wife, 2 daughter and parents. Quality of the time matters. 8. I went through a government education system. Many of my management colleagues went to local universities. There are challenges, however I don't think we should generalize that the local educational system are bad. I think we should stop complaining about how bad the school system is here, and do something about it to make it better. 9. Innovation cannot be dictated by the CEO, as the CEO I provide the platform. 10. The reason why I am where I am is because I am always hungry to do more. 11. 1/3 of my times is spent on meetings , 1/3 on the governance and the business, 1/3 on client engagement 12. Always be hungry to learn and do more work. 13. H.O.T. culture at Maybank - I encourage honesty, openness, and trust. 14. I learn a lot of my leadership skills on the job I've been blessed to work with a lot of inspiring people.

A Free Disney Day - Only for those who are currently in the US Thanks for the information shared by one of my loyal blog contributors. --This is for the US students who do volunteer work within the US. Disney is currently giving a free Disney Day ( a 1-day pass to either Disneyland California, or Disneyworld Florida) which will be valid till Dec 15, 2010 to people who volunteer for 1 day. The cost of a 1-day ticket is about US$70+.

http://home.disney.go.com/parks/

We want to inspire one million people to volunteer a day of service to a participating organization in their communities. So we're celebrating these volunteers' good works by giving each of them a 1-day, 1-theme park ticket to the Disneyland® Resort or Walt Disney World® Resort, free. There's no better time to make a dream come true for others and let us make a few come true for you.
