Developing Talent Management Strategies:

Nurturing, Attracting, Retaining Malaysian and International Talents

5th July 2011



When Prime Minister YAB Dato' Sri Mohd Najib Tun Razak announced the creation of Talent Corporation in December 2010, he emphasised, “proactive steps were needed to attract, nurture, engage and retain the talent needed for a high income economy. Such initiatives will need to target the different sources of talent, namely Malaysians in Malaysia, Malaysian diaspora and foreigners both those abroad and those already in the country.”


As an initiative to contribute to this process, the University of Nottingham Malaysia Campus, Cultural Impact Sdn Bhd and Trity Technologies Sdn Bhd are organising a one-day forum to bring together educators, corporate leaders and government institutions as well as international experts to explore what each and every Malaysian stakeholder can do to benefit from nurturing, attracting and retaining talent.



Seminar Objectives



  • Create opportunities to support Malaysian companies and ministries in their strategies towards developing and retaining talent in Malaysia


  • Increase awareness of the importance of identifying, attracting and retaining talent across Malaysian society


  • Facilitate discussions on future actions towards developing talent management strategies for companies



Who Should Attend



This seminar is highly recommended for Heads of Corporate Organisations and Universities, human resource specialists, senior officers and civil society representatives of interest groups and ministries of the Malaysian Government.

Nurturing talents


Home-grown or poaching? Can success be copied or imitated? Agriculture or Day-trade: looking for a Talent Management Model.


Attracting, retaining, and nurturing talent will be the theme of the day’s first panel discussion. Panel members will discuss approaches with each other and with participants in the audience, exploring dilemmas such as: should talent be developed in the long-term, internally, or is it more economically efficient to hire from the market professionals with the required experience? Are leaders born with the necessary skills or are those skills developed over time? Do people learn anything in management courses or does all significant learning take place outside the classroom and in real work situations? What are companies doing, in practice, regarding these issues?


Panel discussion by

-    Mr Lokman Baharuddin, Exxon Mobil Companies Malaysia, Human Resources Director

-    Mr Tommy Webb, Hess Oil & Gas Director Human Resources Asia Pacific

-    Mrs Kala Kularajah Sundram, Maxis Bhd, Senior Vice President, Chief Talent Officer
