The third Pitch ‘n’ Win event in Penang was organized on 10th January 2015 in collaboration with Malaysian Institute of Lifelong Learning (MIII) founded by Jeffrey Lim (林道宏).
Jeffrey is a businessman, property investor, speaker, book author, philanthropist. He attended the first Penang event as a participant, and also the second event as main speaker. This time, he was both the main speaker and also the venue sponsor.
The Chinese-speaking session called 【槟城】中文 Pitch ‘n’ Win – 2015年学什么? was conducted in the meeting room of MIII office. The event title means Pitch ‘n’ Win @ Penang – What to Learn in 2015? MIII has been conducting a few courses on IT, e-commerce and property investing.
However, the Saturday morning session attracted only 6 of us. As such, the session became more informal as everyone could share in more details.
Jeffrey first started the session by introducing a life planning tool called Action Diary (行动日志) that he has been using to achieve his success thus far. He also gave us on-the-spot exercise on what to achieve in life in short-term, medium-term and long-term.
Then each of us shared about ourselves and the business or job we were working on. We also answered Jeffrey’s question on the life goals we have set out to achieve, and what we were doing to achieve the goals.
As we shared, Jeffrey also asked further questions and shared his feedback and insights based on our goals. All of us were benefited by his sharing turned impromptu group counseling session.
Life and business group consulting thanks to Jeffrey
Chuah Kok Khoon was selected by the whole group as the best presenter for his interesting and authentic life and business story. He got extra time to elaborate and ask Jeffrey for advice on his case.
After the 2-hour event, all of us went for lunch and enjoyed Penang food together nearby. We talked further over lunch. Thanks to Jeffrey not only for his sharing and insights, but also for his being humble to reach out to us despite having achieved his social status and success in life and business.
- The sharing session was “pivoted” into a group consulting session due to small group.
- It was a beneficial session for all. But more participants could have attended and learned from Jeffrey and one another.
