Net proceeds from the sales of “The Entrepreneur Banker” will be channelled to Diabetes Malaysia.)
Following the successful launch of the “The Entrepreneur Banker” Book by Tan Sri Azman Hashim, Chairman, AmBank Group last year, a book signing ceremony was held on Saturday, 17 January 2015 in MPH Mid Valley Megamall with the proceeds from the book sales going to a charity of Tan Sri Azman’s choice, Diabetes Malaysia.
Launched in November last year by Tan Sri Azman himself, the book offers an insight into the AmBank Group Chairman’s extraordinary life as one of Malaysian banking industry’s most prominent and enduring personalities.
The book also featured his sense of adventure, both in his business endeavours and hobbies, as well as his unflinching optimism in the face of challenges in his steady guidance of AmBank Group as a major banking group in the Malaysian financial landscape. Rare photos, cartoons by Malaysia’s most famous cartoonist Datuk Mohammad Nor Khalid, better known as Lat, and not forgetting the omnipresent icon for the Group, the camel, add colour to the narrative, giving life to the pages of this revealing story of a remarkable life.
“We are pleased to partner Diabetes Malaysia as a charity of our choice. Diabetes is a common disease which inflicts every segment of society due to Malaysia’s abundance of different types of food and our love of food. We hope our contribution will go a long way towards assisting Diabetes Malaysia in their efforts towards a healthier Malaysia,” said Tan Sri Azman after signing, ‘The Entrepreneur Banker’.
Diabetes Malaysia also conducted free health screenings and counselling during the book signing. The Entrepreneur Banker is available at major bookstores including MPH, Popular, Kinokuniya, Borders and Times at RM35 per copy.
