The Malaysia MDRT (Million Table Round Table) Day was held on September 1, 2012 at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre. It was Co-Organized by MII (Malaysian Insurance Institute) and Sponsored by AIA. I was greatly honoured to be the keynot speaker for the event.
This was the second year for the event. In 2011 the event attracted about 1400 people and, due to its success, the 2012 event had 1750 people in attendance.
Malaysia is number 8 out of 81 for the number of Million Dollar Round Table members. Considering that they have a population of only 28 million, that is a great accomplishment.
The theme of the event was Erasing Boundaries. I was one of the speakers at the event. The other speakers were all Top Million Dollar Round Table memmbers as well as those who have achieved their COT and TOT designations and included:
Jenny Yeoh - New Country Chair for the Malaysian Million Dollar Round Table. Jenny has achieved the COT designation for 6 years and her TOT (Top of The Table), the highest level of achievement possible, for 1 year.
Radhakrishna (RK) Shetty from India - a 15 year Million Dollar Round Table member and 8 years TOT.
Delia Wong - a Million Dollar Round Table member for 2 years. Delia started her career in Singapore by prospecting on the streets, approaching people while they smoked.
Miriam Kuan - 20 year member, 7 years TOT, and a brilliant and funny speaker.
Mohamed Manmohan Abdullah - 17 year member and Country Chair for Malaysia
