The World Brands Foundation (TWBF) once again created history by hosting the prestigious BrandLaureate BestBrands Awards 2022-2023. This event has been running for 18 years. The event saw brand founders, top executives, and leaders from Multinational Companies (MNC), Government Linked Companies (GLC), Public Listed Companies, and Large Corporations gather to represent their winning brands.
The theme of this year’s awards is “Always Be The Brand Champion, No Matter What, No Matter How, No Matter When!” The BrandLaureate BestBrands Awards 2022-2023 celebrates the remarkable journeys of brand champions who faced challenges and remained true to their goals and vision. These are brands that have not only met expectations but have also set standards by embodying passion, authenticity, and the ability to bring positive change to their businesses and society.
Prof Dr KKJohan, World President of The BrandLaureate, shared in his opening speech, “Greatness is when you fall and you rise, that is greatness!” He emphasized that although achieving success is significant, ‘our greatest glory’ lies in the process of overcoming adversity; it is our resilience and determination to stand back up that truly defines our greatness.
“Today, your brands are a living testament to the power of determination and innovation. You have not only embraced challenges but have used them as stepping stones to success,” he shared as he encouraged the winning recipients to continue to push ahead despite all that they may face in the coming years. Ending his speech, he posed the audience with a challenge, “Don’t be afraid of the fall, don’t be afraid of greatness. Be courageous to step into the ring, face the challenges head-on, and recognize that the journey won’t always be smooth. But that is greatness attained – in those moments of falling, we find our strength, our determination and our true potential.”
Amid the lively celebrations of Malaysia’s Merdeka Month, The World Brands Foundation proudly recognizes Nation Pride Brands and Nation Favourite Brands for their vital contributions to the nation, economy, and society.
