Themed “Connecting Corporates With Civil Society – Partnership for Humanity”, Kind Malaysia 2018 will be held from 24 – 25 October 2018 at the country’s largest exhibition space, Malaysia International Trade and Exhibition Centre (MITEC) aims to highlight the importance of creating a culture of kindness within corporate setups and assist them with delivering various CSR initiatives.
The two-day event and expo will connect like-minded individuals from non-profit organisations, large corporations, and small-to-medium size enterprises to forge relationships that will demonstrate kindness towards the community.
Mr M Gandhi, Group Managing Director (ASEAN Business) of UBM Asia, said, “Over the past few years, UBM has shifted our community focus away from more passive philanthropic activities to more active engagement, looking to bring our expertise to bear in how we serve the communities in which we operate. The launch of Kind Malaysia allows us to harness our resources and the expertise of our employees and many business partners to make a real difference.”
