DR K H WANG – MULTI-AWARD WINNER
Dr Wang’s research, which led to the creation of the Smart Reader Creative Teaching Methodology®, has given pre-school education a tremendous facelift and has transformed the landscape of the early childhood education in the country. With her years of sheer commitment and dedication to creative teaching styles, these innovative concepts were imbued into the Smart Reader® programmes. With the establishment of the Smart Reader Kids® franchise business concept in 2000, she made a difference in pre-school education.
Speaking about challenges, Dr Wang said, “Female entrepreneurs are often regarded as second best when compared to men. We have to play our roles as wife and as mother and to most women, family comes first before business.”
“Hence, women leaders need to be more motivating, influential and be able to guide and educate others in order to prove ourselves so as to win the recognition, respect and support of other businesspersons,” she asserted.
“If we can push the boundaries and get out of our comfort zone, we can be leaders who engage the people and add value by playing a significant role in their lives.”
Dr K H Wang bagged the prestigious Special Achievement Award – Individual and Women Achievement of the Year Award, from the first-ever Malaysia Achievement Summit & Awards (MACA) 2012.
