Murdoch University Alumni Chapter AGM and Professional Development event 2014

On Saturday October 11th, Jo-Ann and Erin from the Murdoch University, Perth alumni office joined an enthusiastic crowd of Malaysian alumni at the beautiful Grand Millennium Hotel in Kuala Lumpur for the Annual General Meeting of the Murdoch University Alumni Chapter.

As always the program for the day was jam-packed with value and fun, from a fantastic PD session and a lively election of new Committee members to a sumptuous sit-down lunch followed by a rollicking game of Pictionary. Presided over by the newly re-elected President, Mr Adrian Ong, guests were pleased to hear a wrap-up of the Chapter’s activities for 2014 and learn more about the exciting events planned for 2015, a year that marks not only the University’s 40th Anniversary but also the 15th year of the Murdoch University Alumni Malaysian Chapter.

One of the highlights of the day was the PD session “Building your Online Presence with New Media and Expanding Your Influence” presented by Ms Lousia Chan. Her excellent and informative talk on the pitfalls and opportunities of new media was both enlightening and entertaining. The audience were asked to consider how their electronic footprint is tracked and monitored and assessed across every aspect of their working and personal lives, a challenging concept, skillfully channeled by Louisa into a positive and exciting potential for controlling and utilising your personal brand.

Murdoch University Alumni Relations looks forward to working with the newly elected Committee members both old and new as planning for the Anniversary year gets under way. For those who are not connected with your local Chapter, kindly please contact them at or facebook group at
