Consulus adds Malaysia to its Global Network
March 6th, 2018 – Consulus, a unique multidisciplinary business and design consulting company designed to help unify organizations and businesses to be purpose-driven, announces the opening of Consulus Malaysia, the company’s 13th office in its global network. Leveraging on its proven and tested methodologies and data-driven processes gathered from more than fourteen years of inside-out transformative consulting engagements globally, Consulus Malaysia is well-positioned to help Malaysian organizations face the disruptive challenges and demands of Industry 4.0.
“Malaysia is one of the strongest and most vibrant economies in ASEAN. We have always operated in Malaysia; this step now takes our commitment to a higher level. I am excited that we are working with Timothy who is exceedingly talented and a purpose-driven leader. He is in the best position to work with Malaysian businesses and business leaders who are seeking innovative ways to lead and grow their organisations”, says Lawrence Chong, CEO of Consulus. “Our purpose is to work with these organisations to ensure their relevance and sustainability in the ever-changing digitally empowered global economy. We believe we can add significant value to the Malaysian economy by helping create more Purpose-Driven businesses, regardless of their size and industry,” he adds.
“In recent years, research and data have shown that Purpose-Driven companies are the innovative game changers that consistently deliver sustainable value beyond profits,” elaborates Timothy Hor, the newly appointed Country Director at Consulus Malaysia. “There are many good organisations in Malaysia but to ensure that Malaysia remains competitive regionally and globally, we need to incorporate purpose as a strategy to enable companies which can innovate and deliver compelling value to its customers, employees, and stakeholders,” he adds.
“And that is the goal of Consulus Malaysia – to help Malaysian companies unite, transform, and innovate to meet the challenges of Industry 4.0 so these good homegrown companies can become great purpose-driven businesses.”
In 2012, Bank Islam Brunei Darussalam [BIBD) engaged the services of Consulus to transform its organisational culture and strengthen the perception of its brand with a refreshed identity. “The new and transformed BIDB today is a result of 4 years of focused engagement and hours of inside-out workshops across all levels of the organization to align the bank’s purpose, values, strategy, and brand,” explains Rawi Ahmed, Partner of Consulus Singapore. “Using PurposeCORE™, our 3-in-1 business transformation method integrating business, human resource, and design, we were able to co-create with BIBD to deliver a whole new banking experience to customers,” Rawi elaborates.
In addition to PurposeCORE™, Consulus Malaysia will also be offering PlaceCORE™, a total development solution, from urban planning, architecture, space and landscape design, and marketing, to business transformation to property developers in Malaysia. “Delivered together with CPG Consultants, one of Asia’s leading property development professionals with a full spectrum of infrastructure & building development and management services, we are extremely excited to work with Malaysian property developers to help them create holistic, integrated and people-centric developments of the future,” Timothy enthuses.
Using this holistic implementation program from business strategy, master planning, architectural, organisational, development, and implementation to branding, Consulus and CPG Consultants recently won an international design and landscaping award to transform the Han River waterfront in Danang, Vietnam, into a global green city by enabling a holistic and creative ecosystem for entrepreneurship and ideation, community engagement, and nature rejuvenation.
Consulus Malaysia is based out of Kuala Lumpur and fully supported by Consulus World Center in Singapore and its network of 60+ international, multidisciplinary consultants globally.
