As usual, bigger and much better than before with their theme #MoreThanAChallenge. Now as it heads towards its 4th season, who knows what the future holds for this year's contestants of Maybank's award winning talent search & recruitment competition, and i am seriously curious to participate as a contestant myself to find out, so who is here with me? ;-)
If you remember the reality TV show called "The Apprentice" by Donald Trump, this is somewhat similar but with a better twist to it.
As my previous teasers on Instagram indicated about the upcoming launch of Maybank GO Ahead Challenge 2015 last week, was glad to be able to witness the official grand launching myself at a cool aircraft hangar in Subang Airport thanks to Manoah.
The launch was officiated by Pn.Nora Abdul Manaf, Group Chief Human Capital Officer who gave an inspiring and warm welcome speech to all the fellow medias that was present that day.
"I won't take the element of surprise out of the production but let me leave you a hint. Expect the Unexpected" - Nora Abd Manaf
Not everyday you get to pose indoors beside a real copter, actually i just did at my recent work trip to LIMA 2015 lol.
Bumped into so many old friends that were also previous finalists of Maybank GO Ahead Challenge, because of them i feel so motivated to give this a chance. Since we are still young, so why not right? ;-)
Credits to Ashley for helping me take this photo! :)
Maybank's GO Ahead Challenge has been proven globally successful in grooming potential leaders and pushing everyone's boundaries ever since this program was founded in 2012.
This programme was developed by Maybank Apprentices to seek out the right potential candidates to be part of the ever expanding organization.
To be frank i do not see this challenge as just another competition but a GOLDEN gateway to build a career path for the future especially if you are a freshie without any experiences in the world and where else are you going to get all the exposure you need under one roof?
Obviously Go Ahead Academy. So do take this time to consider about why you SHOULD submit your applications this year, or the next :D
First of all it's MAYBANK, nuff' said and their main prize is up to USD40,000. What else can be more attractive than that? Lol.
