Khazanah Global Lectures: Learn From The World’s Greatest

Fancy a lecture from a former United Nations Secretary-General, a Nobel Peace Prize winner, or the Prime Minister? How about if the lectures were free? Your chance is here!

As part of its Merdeka Series 2007, Khazanah Nasional Berhad is presenting the Khazanah Global Lectures – a series of lectures by prominent world leaders on development in international affairs, economics, society, corporations, and holistic matters. The line-up features:

12th July 2007 Kofi Annan (former UN Secretary-General)
15th August 2007 Muhammad Yunus (founder of Grameen Bank, Nobel Peace Prize winner)
29th August 2007 Joseph E Stiglitz (former Senior Vice President of the World Bank)
10th December 2007 YAB Dato Seri Abdullah Badawi (Prime Minister of Malaysia)
March 2008 Carlos Ghosn (CEO of Nissan and Renault)

All the lectures, taking place in different hotels around Kuala Lumpur, are by invitation with limited free seats for the public. To get one of the coveted public seats, register for your choice of lecture and they will let you know a few days before the lecture if you’re successful. University students, academics, and members of the public are also able to view the lectures through livecasts at participating universities, so if you miss out on a seat, get yourself to a livecast.

Khazanah Nasional Berhad will also organize two other activities: a National Development Seminar (also free to the public) and the Megatrends Forum 2007 (by invitation only). More information about those events will be released soon.

Learn about the world from those that have made the biggest differences. Register for a lecture now!

  1. Wouldn’t if be cool if, for those of us that aren’t anywhere near Kuala Lumpur these lectures would be posted on the net as podcasts for streaming or download?

  2. I second Peter Stinson’s thought, especially if they could be downloaded – our connections are so slow that I have to take my laptop somewhere else to get video, and I suspect I will want to share some of these.

  3. The public’s not allowed to download nor record the lecture on that day. Khazanah owns the copyrights, and they will do the documentation.
