On the 11th of August 2021, the Amnesty Malaysia BAC Club invited Mr.Vijiaprabu Manikam, to give a talk on Servant Leadership Sharing. The webinar was held from 7pm to 8:30pm, on Zoom.
With leadership being an often sought-after skill by employers, Amnesty Malaysia BAC Club hoped Mr.Vijiaprabu would share his knowledge on servant leadership. This is to equip the club members with the necessary knowledge, to effectively lead a team. The event also benefited the new EXCO of the Amnesty Malaysia BAC Club, for the incoming 2021/2022 term.
The topic was on Servant Leadership. Mr Vijiaprabu highlighted the difference between traditional leadership and servant leadership, the impact of servant leadership in an organisation, and characteristics of servant leaders. Mr.Vijiaprabu emphasised that the primary focus of a servant leader, was to help others develop and perform to the best of their abilities. Which draws resemblance to Level 4 (People Development) of the “5 Levels of Leadership” by John C. Maxwell. Whereas, to be a Level 5 (Pinnacle) leader, it has to come naturally when one is respected as a person and what they represent.
The total number of attendees for the event was 41. The demographic included all age groups, mainly those above the age of 16, targeting those interested in excelling in leadership roles with a primary focus on members of the Amnesty Malaysia BAC Club.
The invited speaker, Mr.Vijiaprabu Manikam, is the Programme Manager of BAC’s UK Degree Transfer Programme, the Founder and Contributor of The Voice of A Commoner, and the Teacher Advisor of the Amnesty Malaysia BAC Club 2020/2021.
The attendees expressed that they found the session to be very insightful and provided lots of positive responses and feedback. Everyone had a fun time engaging with Mr.Vijiaprabu via the Zoom chat function.
