More international speakers for seminars – KTYS

20th March, 2019

By DK RYNI QAREENA

KOTA KINABALU: The Kolej Teknikal Yayasan Sabah (KTYS) will be organising more nation building seminars with international speakers in the coming months to contribute to the development of Sabah.

KKYS Sdn. Bhd. Chief Executive Officer Terence SK Chee said the seminar which will involve especially officials from various government agencies as well as decision makers in the corporate sector, will see topics related to nation building.

Speaking during the ‘Leading Digital Transformation Seminar’ yesterday, he revealed that KTYS has even created a department to conduct trainings and organize seminar and workshops for such purpose.

By bringing in international speakers, he asserted that participants will be provided with more variety and greater exposure particularly on topics such as digital transformation and the fourth industrial revolution.

“We are going to get more international speakers related to nation building to help the Sabah government such as in today’s topic – digital information is important for the future of our State so we hope to get people in the top management to at least understand it.

“A lot of people don’t understand what it is so after the seminar, they could go back to their respective departments and use the knowledge they gained here to contribute to their organizations,” he said.

A total of 52 participants from various agencies and private sectors took part in the two-day seminar held at University College Sabah Foundation.

Its speaker, a digital transformation analyst from UK, Tom Bryant, covered topics including demystifying digital and emerging technologies, becoming and creating digital government and economy, as well as leadership in the digital age among others.

Chee asserted that it was a major topic in building the nation, adding that the organizing was also an initiative to allow more Sabahans to attend such seminars without having to travel far to the peninsula.

“This is an important topic because a lot of people think technology is simply that, but don’t realize that without people, technology will not be able to do its job – it still needs people to work on it.

“Therefore these are the topics that we hope to put forward and by bringing the speakers here, more people will be able to afford to come.

“We will try our best to reduce the cost next time and see how we can help so more people can enjoy the workshops,” he said.
