Dr. KK Johan said in his welcome address, “The current economy is definitely not encouraging, so what do we do then? Do we crawl back into the hole, like the squirrel does in winter and wait for spring to come, where the climate is warmer and more conducive or do we ride the waves and take on the challenges. The APBF chose the theme of “Dare to Take On, Take It and Take Over” for this year’s Award as we feel it is most appropriate and reflective of current situation. And as brand owners, we must also be strong captains, seafarers who are courageous and confident to navigate the wild and stormy seas and re-surfaced when we are pulled down under by the ferocious waves. SMEs must have a strong and positive mindset to scale the highest peak and break barriers. Grab the opportunities that surrounds you, If there are no opportunities, create them and set trends, innovate to build your brand. SMEs, Dare to Take on, Take It and Take Over to ensure your brand arrives at The Finest Hour. Make it the Finest Hour and not the Final Hour for your brand!”
