Following the overwhelming response and success of the last event, the Malaysian-Thai Chamber of Commerce (MTCC) had on 12th December 2017 organised another Dinner Talk & Networking Night. The event was held at the beautiful private residence of Khun Vikrom Kromadit at Baan Amata in Kromadit Building, Bangkok. Khun Vikrom, a well known philanthropist is the founder and CEO of AMATA Corporation.
The Dinner Talk aptly themed “Disruption Economy – Swim or Sink” was delivered by two prominent speakers who are thought leaders in the industry ie Khun Korn Chatikavanij and Professor Dr. Thambipillai Srikanthan. Khun Korn is the Chairman of the Thai-Fintech Association and former Finance Minister of Thailand; and Professor Thambipillai is the Head of the School of Computer Engineering and Executive Director of the Cyber Security Research Centre, in Nanyang Technological University in Singapore.
The event was well attended by over 150 guests comprising delegates from the Malaysia Embassy, Foreign Chambers, MTCC members and invited guests.
At the opening, guests were treated to a sumptuous buffet spread comprising specially selected Malaysian foods. All guests mingled well in the beautiful rooftop garden; with the cool December air adding splendor to a pleasant evening.
To kick off the event, MTCC Chairman Mr. Yeap Swee Chuan delivered a succinct opening speech whilst the opening remark was delivered by the host, Khun Vikrom. The emcee for the evening, Mr. Wong Kee Poh kept the guests enthralled with his witty delivery and light-hearted banter; lending a relaxed atmosphere to the evening.
Following very engaging talks by the speakers who shared their thoughts and experience on the subject matter, guests were given an opportunity to engage with the speakers through a Q&A session that was moderated by Mr Yeap Swee Chuan. The free flow of questions from the floor certainly lent credence to the resounding success of the event and relevance of the subject matter in today’s business context.
To wrap up the evening, guests were given door gifts comprising specially-packed Hom Mali rice by MTCC, in support of Khun Korn’s “Kaset Khem Kaeng” project; and books authored and authographed by Khun Vikrom.
MTCC wishes to extend special thanks to the gracious host Khun Vikrom, the generous sponsors, the distinguished speakers and all the guests for making the Dinner Talk & Networking Night a resounding success.
