EPF Talk Report

Date: 18th March 2017

Time: 10am – 12pm

Location: Malaysia Hall

This talk was sponsored by the EPF team based in London and 4 speakers were invited. Due to the lack of time for marketing, the turn out rate was not high. We have a total of 9 people who attended the talk, and 3 MACFIS committees were there to help out.

The event started 10.15 am and we were briefly introduced about the KWASA organization before going into the main content of the talk. After that, they talked about the investments that they are currently doing, as well as how they analyzed the risks of an investment. Besides, they also shared some of their work experiences in EPF. We had a very engaging Q&A session right after that.

We received feedbacks from the participants and most of them found that this event was very engaging. This event has certainly allowed them to further understand the agency.

However, there are some aspects that could be improved to avoid facing the same problem for upcoming events. Firstly, the registration for participants should be opened at least half an hour before the event begins, instead of starting late and making the speakers wait for the participants’ arrival. Secondly, at least one day before the event, an email or a text could be sent out as a gentle reminder about the event. In terms of job delegation, tasks were not described well for each job assigned. Hence, it was unclear for those who had to carry out those jobs on what to prepare beforehand or what they should pay attention to during the event.

All in all, as the first event for the new committees, it was indeed a successful one with many lessons learned for improvement.
