We came, we saw, we became All-Star on LinkedIn!
Thus far, 10 of the 50 attendants have attained All-Star rating on LinkedIn starting from scratch at Beginner. The majority are Intermediate and will soon be All-Star.
With All-Star rating, you’re 40x more likely to receive opportunities on LinkedIn. I was surprised not many are familiar with LinkedIn which is pretty much Facebook for professionals.
We had this workshop on Monday 27 Nov in Department of Geology, University of Malaya.
Thank you my Guru Yaya Norazman, American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG) University of Malaya Student Chapter and Science Society University of Malaya.
Here's my deck on for your enjoyment:
Speaking on Volunteerism and Gamification at a Regional Conference on VOlunteerism
I had the honour of speaking at the 15th IAVE Asia Pacific Regional Volunteer Conference (IAVEAP) 2017 by Yayasan Salam and the International Association for Volunteer Effort (IAVE). IAVEAP was held from 22nd to 26th November 2017 at Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre. It was divided into two events: Asia Pacific Regional Volunteer Conference and Asia Pacific Youth Volunteer Conference. I was invited to speak at the latter.
Yayasan Salam wanted me to speak at the panel on Technology and Social Innovation. I decided to talk about gamification in volunteerism.
You can find my presentation slides as follows:
Last Saturday, 18th November 2017, the Deputy Prime Minister YAB Dato' Seri Dr. Ahmad Zahid bin Hamidi officiated the Actyvate at iM4U Sentral in Puchong, Malaysia. I'm extremely grateful to be selected as one of the 12 Actyvators for Actyvate - a game-changer for young Malaysians!
#ActyvateMY gives you the chance to turn your ideas into projects. It is a crowdpledging platform for any youth to start a project or support one.
With this platform, it gives you a step-by-step guide on HOW to start a project. Something I wish I had when I started this journey 7 years ago.
Actyvate helps you with:
1. Framing your idea for the community (ideation)
2. Getting your idea supported by the community (validation)
3. Raising funds from the community (crowdfunding)
4. Start your community project (action)
5. Tell your supporters on your project's progress
Actyvate is all about the community.
What's even better is the institutional backing by key youth organisations such as 1Malaysia For Youth (iM4U), Malaysian Global Innovation & Creativity Centre (MaGIC), Ministry of Youth and Sports (KBS), Ministry of Higher Education (MoHE), Malaysian Youth Council (MBM), National Service Training Department (JLKN) and Ministry of Finance (MoF).
It doesn't get any realer than this. This is a game-changer.
I've started a project to help upskill unemployed youth with Nation Building School.
What's your idea? Or if you don't have one yet, check the projects on activate.my and support them!
Sign up on Actyvate.my and actyvate your dreams!!!
I'd like to take this opportunity to thank MaGIC CEO Ashran Dato' Ghazi and iM4U CEO Rudy Malik for placing your faith in me. I am truly humbled and honoured. I would like to thank all the 11 Actyvators for welcoming us into your fold. Our work has only began, and I'm already excited to actyvate as many young Malaysians as possible!
Me being an Actyvator wouldn't have been possible without the Nation Building School team, especially Marques Jeevan, Pixie Fee, Nafis Nazri, Marcus Lim, Dzulhilmy Mohammad. Let's change the world!
I'm happy to announce I'll be part of Actyvate Malaysia - a national platform to support youth initiatives through collective power.
Prime Minister Najib Razak will be launching Actyvate this Saturday 18 Nov 5ppm-11pm at iM4U Sentral. Do come if you're free!
I genuinely believe this is going to be a game-changer for us young people to support community projects and in turn, be supported for ours. It'll be a platform for us to share ideas and collaborate with youths all across the country. With a number of youth organisations involved, we can turn this into a youth movement.
Nation Building School is excited to contribute to this platform!
Ripples of small changes makes a might blue ocean!
Kudos to Rudy Malik (CEO, 1Malaysia For Youth) & Ashran Ghazi (CEO, Malaysian Global Innovation and Creativity Centre) for wholeheartedly turning this into a reality. Many thanks to National Blue Ocean Strategy (NBOS), Ministry of Finance (MoF), Ministry of Youth and Sports, Ministry of Higher Education (MOHE), National Service Training Department (JLKN) and Malaysian Youth Council (MBM) for joining forces to drive #ActyvateMY.
