‘Redefining skills for 2020’ was designed for business leaders and executives was the theme for 46 delegates mainly from plantations, construction, tea brokering, industrial, and shipping/logistics sectors who were nominated by their respective companies to participate in the 13th Praguna Overseas Training Program 2017 which was held from 18 to 21 October 2017 at Silka May Residencies Tower Hotel, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The unique feature of this program was passing the 450 mark of total participants since the inception of the program, which was initially held in Mangalore, India.

Renowned management Lecturer and Chief Knowledge Officer from Perpetual Knowledge Development SDN BHN Kuala Lumpur Dr. Edwin Varo provided knowledge in managing and doing business for the next generation leaders on the challenges which will determine whether an organisation will survive, decline or accelerate in the next stage of their business lifecycle. 

The learning for 2020 leaders was that the future leaders must have a collaborative mindset, deal across cultures and should be conversant in the technology of the new generation of workers, use of social technology, beyond being digitally confident coupled with bold leadership and management characteristics required to ensure their business adapts and thrives in the 2020 tech-savvy business environment.

On arrival, delegates were taken on a city tour in Putrajaya after breakfast, followed by a gala dinner after completion of the first day training program. They also enjoyed a full day outing at Sunway Lagoon Theme Park, which enabled them to learn the cultural values of the country.

The group was accompanied by Praguna Management Consultants Ltd. Managing Director Dhammika Jayasuriya, ably assisted by Rohan Gooneratne and Chandrakumar as tour coordinators.

Praguna Overseas Program was a brainchild of Jayasuriya, focusing mainly to develop the future leaders.
