Wan Ahmad Saifuddin Wan Ahmad Radzi, Managing Director of EduCity Iskandar, said “EdLeadS 2021 is a free virtual webinar that provides as a platform for emerging generations of future leaders to develop crucial knowledge, values and skills through the sharing of experience from world-class sports-related individuals and industry leaders.”
As part of the EduCity 2.0 plan, Wan Ahmad said that partnering with foreign entities such as Sensible Soccer is an ambitious plan of the city of education to introduce more invaluable material for students of EduCity.
International speakers such as Mike Phelan, Manchester United Director & Chairman of Sensible Soccer / Assistant Manager, David Horrocks, Sensible Soccer Director, and influential speakers from Lenovo, Maybank, and many more are among the presenters. Participants will be able to engage with the speakers through a Q&A session, post a presentation session, and win prizes and awards along the way.
“Through sports, together with the development of communication and team building, we can develop leadership skills that enable students to act effectively as leaders. Some sports also help participants to learn to treat opponents with respect, consider strengths and weaknesses, develop winning strategies and efficiently manage time. Playing sports also helps students build trust and make fast decisions that are important to excel in any position of leadership. Sensible Soccer is a unique company that puts theoretical philosophy and applied experience together, and we are delighted to collaborate on this upcoming webinar with EduCity Iskandar,” said Mike Phelan.
Students from public and private or local and international higher learning institutions are invited to register at https://edleads.educity.com.my/ now and be the first 100 participants to receive exclusive products from Sensible Soccer. Participants will also receive electronic certificates.
