In 2011, within one of Abu Dhabi’s grandest and most luxurious hotel ballrooms, at the climax of the ceremonial event attended by many of the world’s top entrepreneurs, Datuk Prof. Dr. Alan Wong Kwai Hua stood on stage, clutching his winning trophy. He was being honoured with a USA Stevie Award - that Oscar of the business industry - in recognition of being hailed the Executive of the Year. Amidst the roar of the standing ovation by the audience of industry leaders, global achievers and respectable entrepreneurs, Datuk Prof. Dr. Alan Wong’s warm smile was exactly the same one he wore many years ago, half a world away.
He grew up in a remote village. The world for him then was acres and acres of rubber and oil palm plantations. Before his 14th birthday, he was only surviving. Then, one day, seemingly from out of nowhere, he saw a helicopter slowly descending and land in front of him! It was an epiphany. Only then did he realize the world was bigger than what he had previously imagined. He smiled as he felt deep in his heart that the world had more to offer him. An idea began to form, a dream that grew into a blueprint shaped by his experiences day by day. Datuk Prof. Dr. Alan Wong’s dream was to create an equitable business platform so that everyone has the equal opportunity to transform their lives.
“A transformation platform that is a great equalizer” was his original inspiration to start a business. His goal from the very beginning was to use organic farms to ensure environmental protection, and develop products that are beneficial to health and ecologically friendly. This achievement has led to a sustainable development model for MELILEA. Datuk Prof. Dr. Alan Wong is an expert analyst in the macro-trends of the international wellness market. His wisdom has guided numerous entrepreneurs to immense wealth and success.
