After the Queen Victoria Commemorative Medal last year, the Europe Business Assembly (EBA) has again recognised Monspace CEO Dato’ Sri Jessy Lai with a Manager of the Year award, and Monspace has received the Best Enterprise Award. These are given in recognition of Lai’s exceptional leadership and the excellent performance of Monspace Multinational Corp. Dato’ Sri Jessy Lai attended the awards ceremony in Lucern, Switzerland on 3 July 2017.
The Europe Business Assembly (EBA) is an independent corporation of economic, social and humanitarian collaboration, founded in Oxford, UK in 2000. It is an interactive platform for adapting European economic programs to the standards of living in dynamically developing regions. It follows the directives of the European Union and EU programmes “Good-neighbourliness” and “Eastern partnership”. Every year, it awards medals to promising enterprises in Asia, building a friendly relation between European and Asian businesses.
“The entire corporation is exhilarated to know we’ve won the Best Enterprise Award. We’d like to thank EBA from the bottom of our hearts. This is undoubtedly a great motivation to help propel our work further,” said Dato’ Sri Jessy Lai, CEO of Monspace.
Since its founding in 2014, Monspace has established a solid foundation in Asia. Now, it has expanded to the Malaysia, China, Indonesia, Caribbeans, Middle East, Algeria, and other countries. Firstly, the corporation’s flagship project, Monspace Mall, has grown its membership from the millions to tens of millions. The company is also expanding into other fields, such as developing the Memospace VR app, adapting blockchain into financial transactions, and establishing the MS New Symphony Exercise Clinic.
“The young knows no fear. Monspace is a young corporation keen to take on challenges and innovation. We are not afraid to explore and embrace the future,” said Lai.
Lai’s bold and innovative leadership plays a big part in the company’s dazzling track record in just 3 years.
“I’ve always thought leaders need to believe in their ability to make a difference. Your decisions can change the world—beyond just confidence, its about having the drive to constantly pursue excellence. It’s a quality all great leaders must have,” said Lai.
Lai is also not one to stay within rigid frameworks or conventions. She believes maintaining the status quo is no way to excel, and thus constantly lead her team to explore uncharted waters. In her words, “A corporation cannot always stay the same. As leaders, we need an appetite for challenges. Challenges are the true test of character, exposing a leader’s values, trustworthiness, and persistence.”
“All success stories are built upon challenges and tribulations. A leader can’t overcome alone—a strong team is absolutely necessary on the journey to success. Your persistence and courage will be the reason your team sticks with you through thick and thin.”
Lai also expresses her gratitude for EBA’s Manager of the Year award, and promises to continue taking Monspace to new heights, making it a name that’s known all around the world.
Besides attending the awards ceremony in Sweden, Lai was also invited as an official partner to attend the International Excellence in Quality Conference, co-hosted by the EBA and The Swiss Institute for Quality Standards (SIQS). She will be meeting exceptional leaders from around the world to discuss global market trends and entrepreneurial insights.
“I am humbled by the invitation to the conference, and to meet some of the greatest leaders from around the world,” said Lai.
The International Excellence in Quality Conference is a highly anticipated event that involves organisers such as EBA (England), the Oxford Union, and the European Medical Association. Its agenda includes entrepreneurship, healthcare, new industries, and education management.
The event will facilitate discussions about current and future trends in business, strategies, and management.
Attendants at the conference include professionals from Swiss and around the world, such as high-level executives, management experts, healthcare experts, and education executives to facilitate a fruitful discussion and benefit everyone present.
