Maybank Go Ahead Challenge 2014

Maybank GO Ahead. Challenge is back! If you have not heard of it, it is an exciting international business case competition which offers the brightest young minds from Malaysia, ASEAN and across the globe the opportunity to exhibit their potential in a multi-discipline and multi-national initiative with world-class experience, specially designed and organised by Maybank,a truly regional financial services provider. 

I am honored to attend their grand launch last Thursday in GSC, Pavilion.  This is the first student competition in the region that tests participants in multiple disciplines. The Maybank GO Ahead. Challenge combines multi-disciplines reflecting how Maybank do business, bringing the whole Bank to the customer.
  The emcee of the night is Joey G. The Group Chief, Human Capital Officer, Nora Abdul Manaf have explained the challenge and highlighted a few key points. And it is one of the way for Maybank to recruit the junior talents around the region. Participants have a fast pass to Maybank's Graduate Entry level programme which accelerate the development of junior talents. 

I have watched the video from the last year challenge, it looks so much fun! Just search 'Maybank Go Ahead Challenge' in Youtube and you can watch the episodes from last year challenge. Basically it is a blend of The Amazing Race, The Apprentice, Masterchef and various other reality programs. Just by listening to this I really wish I can join this year's challenge! Each individual who get selected from different countries will be grouped. Throughout the challenge, you have to work together with all the new friends you just met. And there are challenges that you can't even think of. It is definitely something to test your talent, endurance, and will push you to your limit. That's the actual situation where we will find ourselves when we are graduated, in today's challenging work climate in successful organization.

The competition is then launched.From Right: Maybank Islamic Berhad CEO, Muzaffar Hisham, Maybank Group Chief Technology Officer, Geoff Stecyk, Group Chief, Human Capital Officer, Nora Abdul Manaf, Maybank Group Chief Risk Officer, Dr John Lee and Maybank Head of Group Talent Sourcing & Development, Chen Fong Tuan 

 Besides the awesome and unique experience the participants will get, candidates worldwide will compete individually, working hard for the chance to make it to the international grand finals and win total cash prizes of USD 72,000. There will be an Ultimate GO Ahead Challenger who will be awarded with USD1,000 cash plus a two-week internship experience in New York. How great is it! Your resume is going to be so cool. And to me, this is the most attractive part.

There are other prizes and good opportunities for the other participants too. Do find out more about it at
