Last Sunday 12th January 2020, the ICT Master students have organised a seminar about the Significance of Leadership in a career. It was organised as part of their Leadership class conducted by Mr. Vanna SY. Starting with a leadership challenge where each group of students introduced their project using the communication techniques they have learned, the event was followed by a very instructive speech of Okhna Dr. Mengly J. Quach.
Dr. Mengly J. Quach is a Cambodian American educationist, medical doctor, entrepreneur and philanthropist, and the Founder of the Mengly J. Quach Education, an umbrella for Aii Language Centers (Aii) and American Intercon Schools (AIS).
More than 250 students registered for the 4 hours seminar, where Dr Mengly J. Quach shared his experience and tips in leadership and career. He pointed out that many young Cambodians are lacking of leadership while it’s highly valued in a career. To improve leadership skills, he stressed the importance of knowledge, honesty, trust, confidence, commitment, work at school, internship and volunteer work.
In addition to these, Oknha Dr. Mengly J. Quach also conveyed tips about a healthy life and the importance of hygiene, dressing and manners to participants. He encouraged students to read more often and introduced a number of books which could inspire them to be future leaders. Most of the books mentioned are focusing on psychology and social science.
We would like to thank all the ICT Master students for making this event happen, our Leadership lecturer Mr. Vanna SY, and Dr. Mengly J. Quach for his inspirational speech and his great contribution to the Education of young Cambodians.
