Direct English Malaysia and Dale Carnegie Malaysia entered a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to develop training and development initiatives aimed at giving people the best skills to succeed in life.

Through this collaboration, Direct English Malaysia and Dale Carnegie Malaysia will synergise marketing efforts, including cross promotion of relevant programmes, collaboration in designing and executing training programmes, as well as organising youth outreach programmes to benefit students from secondary and tertiary institutions.

The exchange of Memorandum of Understanding was held at Direct English International Language Centre in Kuala Lumpur between Dato’ Wan Hisham B. Wan Salleh, President and CEO – DC Training Malaysia Sdn. Bhd. and Dato’ Satinah Bt. Syed Saleh, Director – Melewar Learning Resources Sdn. Bhd.

Dato’ Wan Hisham said: “Dale Carnegie’s passion is to empower people to take command of their roles and change their lives. In Malaysia, we’ve had great success helping organisations and people achieve breakthroughs in performance and in their lives. We observe that language is also a bridge to help people build confidence, so collaborating with Direct English Malaysia will open new learning opportunities to people.”

For 108 years, Dale Carnegie has helped communities everywhere prosper by improving the personal and financial well-being of individuals and organizations. Today, through its presence in more than 90 countries, Dale Carnegie has helped people gain greater influence and make meaningful contributions in the places that matter most.

Tunku Dato’ Seri (Dr) Iskandar B. Tunku Abdullah, Group Executive Chairman of Melewar Group, said “I believe that it is not a coincidence that we find affinity with each other as we both are from globally-recognised organisations. Both our organisations have reached the top of the rung in making a difference to the ‘soft skills’ that are so much needed in order to achieve success and in becoming leaders. Direct English has proven effective in increasing proficiency and fluency in communicating in the English language for school and university students, young adults new to the job market as well as senior executives and government officials alike and our collaboration with Dale Carnegie Malaysia will create many opportunities to jointly deliver our expertise to enable excellence together.”

Direct English Malaysia (Melewar Learning Resources Sdn Bhd) is the master licensee of Direct English products and services, and Direct English is part of the Linguaphone Group UK, one of the global leaders in English language training. Direct English Malaysia has since delivered English language training to thousands of learners in Malaysia, from university students to young professionals to corporate executives, from absolute beginners to advanced learners.
