I’m grateful to be given the opportunity to serve as President of ICF Malaysia for a 2-year term (2018 - 2020). I accepted this responsibility with an open heart.
I’m very happy to observe that for this term, there were volunteers who nominated themselves and came forward, ready to serve. With the Executive Committee in place now, we are ready to roll.
In my short acceptance speech, I mentioned that I’d like to create more coaching awareness programs by having the International Coaching Week (ICW) type of Events every month instead of once a year for one whole week. We’d also reach out to other places such as Penang, Ipoh, Johore, Kota Bahru, Kuantan & East Malaysia.
I’d also be introducing Business Building or Building Your Coaching Practice activities to help members ramp up their coaching practice and business.
We will also kick-off IGNITE, a program driven by ICF Foundation, to offer pro-bono coaching to NGO’s & the Education Sector. New Coaches will benefit by clocking coaching hours and practice. Experience members can come in and give. I’d like to see more collaboration with other Organizations to execute activities that will benefit members.
Over the next 6 months, the ICF Malaysia team would like to engage with as many members as we can on a 1-on-1 basis, asking the question “As an ICF member, what are the 3 things you would like to see ICF Malaysia implement to support you in your Coaching Journey”. And so far, we’ve received great feedback for us to work on. Thank you Coaches.
I’d like to empower my Executive Committee to deliver the programs we plan for in a fast & effective manner. Each of us need to understand our role and how we can work together to achieve greater success.
And I’d like to thank the ICF Malaysia’s Executive Committee of 2016-2018 under Sam Kurian who has two fantastic years including hosting the biggest International Coaching & Leadership Summit 2017 and two very successful International Coaching Week 2017 & 2018.
Ready to Serve,
Jeff Cheah, President (2018 – 2020), ICF Malaysia
