Ahhh, Malaysia. Ever since I have moved here it has held a special place in my heart. The food, the people, the culture, the Life it holds is second-to-none. And now, Malaysia is putting its’ mark on the world map through WIBWS: The Women In Business World Summit.
The Women in Business World Summit (WIBWS for short) is an online “Ted Talks” style event, featuring thought-leaders and top-notch business speakers from around the world via an online platform that can be accessed by anyone who has a computer, laptop, tablet or smart-phone. This truly is a global event as our speakers and partners are from all over the world.
So where does Malaysia come in? Well, here are some interesting little-known facts about WIBWS:
1) The Founder and CEO of WIBWS, Dr. Annie Lim (who recently met Oprah), was born and raised in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
