Best Personal Branding, Star Award 2018 Malaysia

What is Personal Branding?
Do you even know what does it mean?

You see, Branding has been in existence since the early ages where artifacts, relics are used to differentiate different cultures and eras. Take Malaysia & Singapore for example; Malaysia is under the Commonwealth organizations which was back then and still is under Britain (used to be known as the "Great Britain"). Or even Communism vs Capitalism; These are all a form of Branding.

Today, we are in the Information Age where companies and brands are branding themselves as the preferred Employer and Employee Engagement. That being said, the last phase of Branding is the individuals! Because you and me, we're unique; Everyone is unique! We have our own personal values that makes us who we are today. That is why Personal Branding is important because with all these in place, we can actually make a difference and possessed great values in making the world a better place! But these individuals have not been given the recognition they deserved.

Best Personal Branding Star Award, started in Singapore in 2017; It's to acknowledge these amazing individuals which has impact or left a strong influence on their personal achievements (NOT just in the corporate world, but everywhere else)

The objectives of this special award, is to honour individuals who empowers and gives positive impacts within their industries; Because this award recognises the inividuals achievements as an individual, personal assets, strengths, skills and positioning.

Kendrick Ng, he's a COO by day and a renowned artist & digital visual recorder by night. It's really rare to find amazing talents such as his! To be able to digitally sketch a summary of an event or conference in just a short span of time is outstanding! He started out putting his keen observation skills and humor to use as a cartoonist and visual recorder, and created #kendylife. When I first followed his page, I was amazed by the drawings. In fact, I have actually seen his drawings before, especially some of the characters on it that is quite commonly seen on social media and even at public places. Having dedicated himself to art and creativity for the last 12 years and counting, Kendrick continues to challenge himself creatively and I totally support that! This was his summary that he did for today's conference and it's just beyond too good to be true, but it's for real! He actually won the Best Personal Branding Star Award 2017 in Singapore.
