With the aim to have big fast results illustrated, Big Fast Results Institute Sdn Bhd (BFR-I) in partnership with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) have opened registration for the inaugural Global Transformation Forum (GTF), to be held in Kuala Lumpur from 21-23 October, 2015.
At a time when governments across the globe are exploring and turning to innovative methodologies to meet the needs of their citizens and averting challenges that may have global impact, conversations on transformation have thus far been informal and uncoordinated. The GTF presents a unique and dedicated platform in providing and promoting cohesive dialogues on the ideas, insights and best practices that will successfully operationalise transformation.
“This inaugural annual event is a showcase demonstrating and illustrating how we need to get things done with discipline and focus to achieve our objectives. Everyone knows what they want and why they want it — for example, eradicating poverty, building up infrastructure and growing a sustainable resilient economy. But it’s how we achieve both a tangible and measurable outcome that’s the challenge,” said Dato’ Sri Idris Jala, Managing Director of BFR-I.
The forum will focus on non-traditional approaches to policy making, project implementation and overcoming personal challenges. Speakers who will hold court for the 2-day event will include notable leaders, including present and former Heads of State, business icons and socioeconomic practitioners, who will share their personal transformation experiences as well as challenges faced in bringing their pursuits to transformational outcomes.
