Kota Bharu, 12 September 2023 - CelcomDigi Berhad (CelcomDigi) kicked off its first MY5G SME Digital Workshop series in Kota Bharu, Kelantan today. This workshop programme is designed to provide micro and small enterprises the opportunity to learn and identify suitable technologies and digital solutions for them to start their digital journey especially now with 5G connectivity being rolled out across the country.
Held in collaboration with SME Corp, Astro, Lazada, TikTok Shop, Kumpulan Siti Khadijah, Touch 'n Go eWallet and WarongKu, the MY5G SME Digital workshop is a hands-on programme to equip participants with relevant tools and skills that will help them take the first step in digitalising their business. These local business owners and enterprises are also able to gain insights and experiences from the success stories and tips that will be shared by the programme partners.
The first workshop held in Kota Bharu today saw Padzilah Enda Sulaiman, founder of Siti Khadijah and Mohammad Munzir Aminuddin, Group Chief Executive Officer of Kumpulan Siti Khadijah sharing their experiences of how digitalising their business has taken them to where they are today. The panel of speakers also discussed various topics that can assist micro and small enterprises with their digitalisation journey, from financing, managing and operating an online business, to amplifying brand presence in the online space, engaging customers via social media as well as an introduction to e-commerce.
CelcomDigi’s Chief Enterprise Business Officer, Afizulazha Abdullah who launched the MY5G SME Digital Workshop 2023 said that it is no longer about why these local entrepreneurs should digitalise their business but how they can do it fast to be competitive and boost the productivity and efficiency of their business.
“CelcomDigi believes that digitalisation can help to unlock many opportunities for the Malaysian micro and small medium enterprises and push them to be ahead in both local and global markets. Moreover, with 5G connectivity being made available throughout Malaysia, businesses should quickly leverage the technology and its features to innovate and build strong presence in digital marketplaces.”
“As their trusted digital partner, we want to ensure that no one is left behind. We are committed to continue helping them transform their businesses by providing guidance in all aspects of powering up a business digitally through initiatives like today’s MY5G SME Digital Workshop. On behalf of CelcomDigi, I would also like to thank our programme partners who have come together and curated this practical programme with relevant modules and insights to help our participants bridge the gap and embrace digitalisation quickly.”
