Kind Malaysia 2023 is committed to welcoming advocates of kindness

Partners, volunteers and corporate associates join shoulders on this movement toward greater good

Kind Malaysia will soon open its doors to welcome like-minded individuals and corporate organisations who wishes to make a positive impact on the community

With only a few days left until the show, the highly anticipated Kind Malaysia is set to welcome a record 132 exhibitors representing social, charitable, community and corporate foundations who will each showcase their vision, mission, and slew of activities that are centred on making an impact in the community. Two panel discussions and 20 presentations are expected to be attended by 3000 visitors over the two-day event.

Taking place at the Malaysia International Trade and Exhibition Centre (MITEC) from 2 to 3 March 2023, the two-day expo themed “Kindness Unites Humanity” will feature high-level keynotes, panel discussions, seminars, experience sharing, performances, educational content, and relationship-building initiatives. Participants will also get the chance to stay on the pulse of the latest in humanitarian innovations and the best current practices currently being employed.

The panel discussion on the first day will particularly delve into the homegrown success stories of non-profits and social enterprises that have championed kindness as their core purpose, and their journey to building sustainable organisations. This session will also include mini-stories of how corporate companies came together with them to work on solving the issues they are working on eradicating. Participants can look forward to an engaging discourse moderated by John-Son Oei, Founder of Epic Homes, and featuring panellists Justin Cheah, Marketing Director of Kechara Soup Kitchen; Nik Suzila, Co-Founder of Kloath Cares; and Dr. Wong Siew Te, Founder of Bornean Sun Bear Conservation Centre.

On the second day, the floor will be shared by experts to discuss the topic of Building A Better Future Together: Corporates Empowering Changemakers. The session will be moderated by Zaim Mohzani, Co-Founder of Nation Building School & Malaysia Jobs Coalition. Industry experts will include Anita Ahmad, Head of Communication Development of Yayasan Hasanah; Prema Ponnudurai, Head of the School of Media and Communication at Taylor’s University; and Chun Wah Hoo, Founder and Managing Director of NGO Hub.

“They will be sharing the best practices of how Malaysian Corporates and companies have innovatively used their sustainable programmes to empower changemakers in Malaysia to build a better future together and give real-world examples of successful initiatives and the lessons learned from them,” said YBhg. Tan Sri Dato’ Asmat Kamaludin, Chairman of Kind Malaysia and DSA Exhibition & Conference Sdn Bhd, the co-organiser of Kind Malaysia 2023.
