The grand event was also graced by Artists – Maryjane Kwong and Kit Lam from Hong Kong. The global prestigious award ceremony was organised by McMillan Woods Global at the Shangri-La Hotel, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia; with the theme “Vol 9”, inspired by the iconic 1953 James Bond novel, with a play on numbers (009), in conjunction with McMillan Global Woods’ 9th year anniversary.
The McM Global Awards 2022 was a manifestation of the commitment of McM Global Woods members worldwide to promote exemplary leadership and recognise the successes of entrepreneurs and leading business visionaries across all industry sectors. The Award honored their overall excellence and great contributions towards global economic development, especially during the difficult pandemic times.
Dato’ Seri Dr. Raymond Liew, President of McMillan Woods Global, said, “2022 has been a vital year for all industries as they progressively recover or reboot their businesses from the pandemic. This is a very challenging year and we, at McMillan Woods Global will do our best to be the medium in helping existing and upcoming industry players jumpstart and to ease the recovery process by providing business networking events, industrial talks, exhibitions, and more that will introduce themselves on a national and international scale that will aid tremendously in helping them elevate their business and contribute to Malaysia’s economic development.”
McMillan Woods Global has also been known for its philanthropic initiatives over the years through its ‘McM Cares’ programme and has donated some RM2 million to various charitable causes. This year, McMillan Woods Global aimed at raising funds of over RM500,000 for the National Cancer Society of Malaysia (NCSM) and local newspaper foundations, namely – Yayasan Sinar Untuk Malaysia, Yayasan Nanyang Press and Yayasan Sin Chew, among others.
“We donate all the net collections from the award event to charity. I personally guarantee that no less than RM100,000 is given to charity each year. That is the reason why contributors are more receptive to the McMillan Woods Global Awards, as we do not keep any surplus to ourselves. Nonetheless, this year, following the pandemic, the bar has been raised to RM500,000,” Dato’ Seri Raymond Liew added.
The awards welcomed an array of top-notch global corporate visionary leaders, A-List celebrities, and rising entrepreneurs from Australia, Indonesia, Thailand, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, India, China, the United Arab Emirates (UAE); Hong Kong, the United Kingdom (UK), the United States of America (USA), and more who possessed outstanding financial performance, global impact, influence, innovation, and corporate social responsibility qualities.
