The challenge aims at using a younger method in attracting and reaching out to young graduate's the unconventional way. This has proven to be an successful platform to cultivate and demonstrate potential talents that Maybank is consistently on the look out for. After all discovering talents at a young age is the essence for a better tomorrow.
I had the privilege of covering the Grand Launch of the Maybank GO Ahead Challenge at Golden Screem Cinemas Pavillion of a Cocktail reception followed by the launch. It was a day where, many influential leaders attended the Grand Launch.
During the Media Q&A session, Ms Nora Abdul Manaf, Group Chief Capital Officer of Maybank Malaysia, spoke of the Challenge and gave us an insight on the amount of leading financial students whom participated in the previous GO Ahead Challenge from the last 2 seasons. In 2014, the GO Ahead Challenge will be planned and conducted by previous individuals form Maybank's Apprentice Program.
Secondly, Maybank is making to have the finalists actually experience having work as a team to deliver not only stretch targets but also in a short period of time, with total strangers. What more interesting, students of different culture and nationality can participate.
Thirdly, the challenge is also unique as it encourage finalists to participate in corporate responsibility programs to enable them to experience firsthand of humanising mission that Maybank embraces.
