MESSAGE It gives me great pleasure to accept your invitation to be the guest of honour for The Outstanding Young Person of Sabah (TOYPS) 2007 Awards Ceremony Gala Dinner. First, I would like to express my appreciation to JCI Kota Kinabalu and the Organising Committee for their dedication to make TOYPS a success and remarkable programme. We are a nation that is celebrating one whole month of Kemerdekaan happiness. It is important to note that seventy-five percent of Malaysians are born after Merdeka. This indicates the significance of the role of young Malaysians in shaping our nation’s future. Sabahans and other Malaysians alike must be reminded of the history of our forefather’s



hardship and tribulations in achieving the independence of our country. Our past glory and their sacrifices must not go in vain, now the future is in our hands, and the destiny of the nation lies in the youths of today. We are proud that The Outstanding Young Person of Sabah serves as an inspirational example and incentive to young Sabahans and Malaysians in general to forge ahead to achieve greater heights for the development and welfare of the State of Sabah. We wish to make the state of Sabah as a catalyst for young individuals to develop their talents to benefit


our state in all fields. On behalf of the State of Sabah I wish to congratulate the recipients of the Outstanding Young Person Award of Sabah. Your achievements are an inspiration to all Sabahans and other Malaysians in general. Congratulations!


Y. B. Datuk Seri Panglima Joseph Pairin Kitingan, J.P.

MESSAGE 4 “C”s - The Change Roadmap To Build Brand Identity Communication . Commitment . Continuity . Cash ��


Dear members of JCI Malaysia, It is an honor and a pleasure to pen a few words in The Outstanding Young Person of Sabah souvenir magazine organized by JCI Kota Kinabalu. To begin with, people are frequently known to turn their poorness, failures, heartbreaks, and other such adversities into success. Trials and tribulations give people the power to live strongly, the strength to care for the weak, and the courage to challenge the new. In other words, they are what create “tough” people with outstanding human capacity. The world today needs more “tough” people. They hold the key to invigorating society, promoting innovations, and bringing economic growth. It is precisely these “tough” people who have the potential to transform the world into a “tough” world full of hope. We’ll set the goals high, and it will take the commitment and contribution of the people to reach it, but I know that with the passion to be better, we can do it. The next generation of the mankind is counting on us and The Outstanding Young Person of Sabah Awards program indeed provides a good platform to recognize the “tough” people. I congratulate JCI Kota Kinabalu under the leadership of President Neelkrish and Organising Chairman JCI Sen Donald Steven for organizing such a meaningful event which certainly benefit the community of Sabah and Malaysia as a whole. Let’s continue to create better leader to create better society!.

BE BETTER Yours in Junior Chamber, JCI Senator Law Lee Kiau National President 2007 Junior Chamber International Malaysia

Business, Economic or Entrepreneurial Accomplishment


MESSAGE It is a great honour for me to be awarded as your Outstanding Young Person and a special privilege for me to share with you a short message. GREAT LEADERS ARE MADE, NOT BORN (William A. Cohen). Likewise good entrepreneurial leaders are made not born. They are made through the fire of oppositions and criticisms. To be a great business leader, one must be able to take criticisms constructively. When one embarks on a big project or starts a new initiative, one must expect opposing views. There will always be critics and skeptics. Therefore if you think what you are doing is right, be bold, follow the Nike slogan, “Just Do It”. However be prudent when taking on such an opportunity as it might either make or break the said business. That is how you differentiate a leader from a follower. Secondly move fast with a competent management team to secure the market early. Research has found that the first mover advantage (pioneer advantage) is a unique case of competitive advantage that is derived from market entry timing (Kerin and Varadarajan, 1992). Team work is crucial because moving fast alone without a good team may stretch one’s ability and resource to breaking point. Thirdly, branding must be emphasized. “A great brand raises the bar -- it adds a greater sense of purpose to the experience, whether it’s the challenge to do your best in sports and fitness, or the affirmation that the cup of coffee you’re drinking really matters.” - HYPERLINK “ Howard_Schultz” \o “Howard Schultz” Howard Schultz (CEO, Starbucks Corp). The world is moving towards branding as the key to success. Most regional and global companies are into merger and acquisition rather than organic growth. This is because there is great value in branding positioning and exposure. It reflects the current emphasis of perceived value even though real value is of equal importance. With the right branding, sales will be able to grow exponentially. With good branding, financial support from bankers will be more forthcoming to facilitate business expansion. Profit margin will improve tremendously as you can mark up higher as client will have more confidence in your product / merchandise. Advertisement and marketing is very important to all company. Therefore one must spend enough to get the right branding exposure. Fourthly, one should leverage on outsourcing as most international and regional companies are practicing it. Outsourcing became part of the business lexicon during the 1980s and refers to the delegation of non-core HYPERLINK “” \o “Business Operations” operations from internal production to an external entity specializing in the HYPERLINK “” \o “Management” management of that operation. The wisdom of outsourcing is that it enables one to focus on core business and not deplete internal resources.

Fifthly, perseverance and luck must come hand in hand. We need 90% of hard work and 10% of luck. If luck is not on your side even 90% of hard work might not be able to help you to succeed in business. As I end this message, let me wish everyone good luck in all your undertakings.

BIODATA Raymond obtained his Bachelor of Business Administration (honours) Degree from Western Michigan University, USA. His affiliations include the Golden Key National Honour Society.

At least 40% of the brands have no presence in Peninsular Malaysia which will really create a new shopping experience. 1 Borneo is poised to be an icon for Sabah and shall herald a new era in Tourism and Retail.

Cultural & Artistic Achievement


MESSAGE “How you think when you lose determines how long it will be until you win.” - G. K. Chesterton Music has led me to many audiences around the world, but the applause from home will always be the sweetest. Which is why this award will always remain in a very special place in my heart. As we focus on developing our country, it is easy to forget about the importance of culture and arts. We often take it for granted. However, in order for a country to be truly developed, there must be even growth throughout all aspects of our life. If infrastructure is the body of a country, information the mind of a country then culture would be the blood of a country and arts the soul of a country. I am glad that JCI has acknowledged this through this award. This recognition serves as an encouragement to me as well as those in the similar field. I want to thank JCI and the panel of judges for believing in me and the work that I do.
