Mahela among eminent speakers at Excellence in Action seminar today

This year’s Excellence in Action event features six big names from diverse fields, one of them being master batsman of Sri Lankan cricket, Mahela Jayawardene.

Named the best international captain of the year by the ICC, Jayawardene’s name lacks no lustre in the international cricket arena. He is one of just four Sri Lankan cricketers who have scored more than 10,000 runs in ODIs. In addition, he was nominated as the Best Test Cricket Player of the Year in 2007.

There are many cricketing feats of Jayawardene’s one could mention. However, even outside the world of sport he has proven himself a truly remarkable citizen. A trustee of the Foundation of Goodness, he works along with fellow cricketers to improve the lives of Sri Lankans living in the north and south of the country. Another cause Mahela has championed is the fight against cancer. This he has done by partnering the charity Trail as a trustee.

In addition to this star cricketer, the five other eminent individuals who will be gracing Excellence in Action are Ajay Amalean - Director of MAS Holdings; Kasturi Chellaraja Wilson - Managing Director of Hemas Pharmaceuticals Ltd, Hemas Logistics and Maritime Cluster; Ratheesan Yoganathan - Chairman and Founder of the Lebara Group; Dulith Herath - Chairman and Founder of the Kapruka Group and Dhara Wijethilake - CEO of the Ceylon Chamber of Commerce.
