On the 12th of August 2022, UMBI held its first UMBI Leadership Lecture Series. We are very honored to have Professor Dato’ Dr Hanafiah Harunarashid as our guest speaker to give a leadership talk on “Effective leadership: From a surgeon to a healthcare and university leader – my journey”. The talk was conducted in a hybrid format at UMBI auditorium with live streaming on UMBI Facebook. In his talk, Prof. Dato’ Dr Hanafiah shared his leadership experience and inspiring journey from a surgeon to the Director of Hospital Canselor Tuanku Muhriz (HCTM) and now the Pro Vice-Chancellor of Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM) – Kuala Lumpur Campus.

He shared seven components of leadership for institutional prestige abbreviated as MEANING: Motivation, Expertise, Authority, Network, Inertia, Negotiations, Greatness. He also stressed the importance of having a strategic plan and teamwork in successful leadership. He concluded his talk by encouraging everyone to believe in themselves and to aim high in life.

We would like to thank Prof. Dato’ Dr Hanafiah for taking the time to give us this sharing and we hope the participants have learned something useful from this talk.
