The road to success is often laid with challenges and seemingly insurmountable obstacles. Those who can persevere through the storm and blaze a trail for others to follow, they are the ones who will have the best stories to tell and inspire others to chase the rainbow, and follow their dreams. Some of these extraordinary individuals have not only successfully forged their careers in their respective fields, they have also contributed to the society through their companies and their own personal capacities. These are the Malaysian Extraordinaire who exemplifies the qualities of a true Malaysian, someone who defies all odds and rise above the sea of negativities, inspiring others and continue to give their best to the country and their community.
As an entrepreneur myself, I feel an obligation to highlight and celebrate these Malaysian Extraordinaire and their stories. Personally, I have been through my highs and lows, and I empathize and respect these entrepreneurs who pour their heart and soul into their dreams that they believe in when no one else would. They had a stare down with Fate and came out stronger, but they also need to be given a pat on their shoulders and someone to tell them, “Well Done!”
The Grandeur International Business Award and the Elegante International Business Award are designed to be that pat on these Malaysian Extraordinaire shoulders and a platform for them to further launch their already bright futures. It is a growing platform for these outstanding individuals to be seen in a wider and more international arena, and for them to shine brighter with their inspirational stories of success. It is my hope and aim that this platform will create a community of enterprising and creative intellectuals who will foster an ever growing sharing and learning essence that will further drive the true Malaysian spirit in the Global Market with our products and services.
“Life is a journey, not a destination”. The award is only the start of the journey for our winners, and it is my honour to be able to use this platform to tell the ongoing stories of our award winners in the hope of inspiring other youths and those who dare to dream. I am proud to continue to be a part of the successful journey of our Malaysian Extraordinaire!
