Cocktails with Josiah Ng, Entrepreneur, Olympian and Commonwealth Games Gold Medalist
3 July 2017

CEO and co-founder of hospitality start up Intertain, Josiah is also a three time Olympian and won a Gold Medal in cycling for Malaysia at the Commonwealth Games in 2010. In 2004, in the lead up to the Athens Olympics, and ranked number one in the world, Josiah had an horrific crash in which he almost died. He underwent multiple surgeries. Incredibly a mere four months later, still carrying many fresh scars and after losing much conditioning and 5kg of muscle, he competed in the Athens Olympics! To cap it off, he very narrowly missed out on the bronze medal by a mere 2 cm. As Malaysia’s top cyclist for many years, he pioneered cycling for others, and helped build Malaysia’s cycling programme to a world class level.

Cocktails and International Business Forum, Sunshine Coast
3 June 2017

The AMBCQ, the Nordic Forum of Australia, and International Circle jointly hosted a cocktail party and international business forum on the Sunshine Coast. The venue was a beautiful waterfront home owned by our hosts Kevin and Erika Devitt. Guests were greeted not only by the wonderful views of the harbour, but also the Australian and Malaysian flags flying from the yacht moored off the private pontoon - Kev and Erika are avid sailors.

 

Our speakers on our international business panel were Kevin Devitt and Huan Luo. Kevin runs a business in investment migration, and Huan is a real estate agent with expertise in working with Chinese buyers. It was wonderful to be able to interview two respected business people who were so willing to share their views and their experiences.

International Student Welcome
4 March 2017

We attended the Lord Mayor’s International Student Welcome Ceremony, held at the Brisbane Botanical Gardens.  International students generated $2.8 billion in 2014 for Brisbane’s economy plus related family property investment, and supported 20,000 FTE local jobs.  It was great to catch up with Lord Mayor Graham Quirk, who is always a magnet to dozens and often hundreds of students for portraits and certificates with the Lord Mayor.

BrisAsia Festival Launch
28 January 2017

It was a delight to attend the VIP reception for BrisAsia. This annual festival is a Brisbane City Council initiative that demonstrates a very embracive and innovative approach to festivals.  The festival is hosted by the Lord Mayor of Brisbane. It was a scorchingly hot summer day due to the current heatwave hitting much of Australia, and it must have been close to 40 degrees at Roma St Parklands. Fortunately there was plenty of water and Japanese iced tea, and cold bento boxes.
