JOHOR BARU: Henley Business School Malaysia will be offering free business workshops to the unemployed and underprivileged school leavers as well as young adults starting this month. 

The school’s head and Centre for Global Business Enterprise and Cloud Analytics director Prof Teck Yong Eng said the workshops would be delivered by the school’s recently established Centre for Global Business Enterprise and Cloud Analytics.

“The programmes will be hosted at the campus in EduCity in Iskandar Puteri here, which is part of the University of Reading Malaysia,” he said.

He added as part of the school’s service to the community, the team was committed to upskilling and educating young people who faced financial difficulty and did not have the opportunity to gain higher education or pursue their dream career.

“Our aim is to help these people develop new business skills and guide them in planning a successful career,” he said.

Teck said there were no pre-requisites for interested applicants apart from enthusiasm and a desire to succeed.

He said the workshops would be based on real-life business activities as well as case studies with hands-on opportunities through practical exercises, application of concepts and simulation of business scenarios.

“We hope to impart knowledge and new business skills through these workshops, including organisational context, people and organisation, strategy, financial literacy, marketing as well as communication.

“We will present certificates once they complete the workshops and we hope it will encourage them to operate their own business or gain meaningful employment in the future,” he said.

The free Business Skills Workshop will be hosted once a month from the end of January.
