Among the speakers for the programme were YBhg Dato Leela Mohd Ali (CEO of Yayasan Budi Penyayang), AP Dr. Azlinda Azman (USM), Tan Sri Nordin Kardi (the VC of KUISAS), Mr. Raymund Jagan (Jabatan Kebajikan Masyarakat) and Mr. Zulzainizam (IM4U). The programme was indeed very fruitful and was an eye-opening to all participants particularly in organizing successful community service projects.
