The word ‘wilderness’ will typically invoke a sense of fear, insecurity, loss of self-confidence as well as conjure an image of chaos and can today be used to describe the current economic and business climate. To be able to traverse in today’s concrete ‘wilderness’ requires a certain amount of creativity, fortitude as well as resilience which is somewhat lacking in today’s young executives. The trappings of today’s modern living where people are reliant on technology and dated processes have produced graduates lacking in creative thinking and charactership needed to be successful in the current competitive business environment.
In line with the vision of the founder, Tan Sri Halim Mohammad, Wilderness Malaysia (WM) was borne out this premise with the belief that to develop successful leaders of tomorrow requires one to be exposed to an environment that will stimulate and challenge as well as develop critical thinking and leadership qualities.
Wilderness Malaysia is a company within the Halim Mazmin Group, who is involved in the Maritime, Aviation, Hospitality and Tourism as well as other businesses. In 2002, WM was given a mandate by the Malaysian Government through the Ministry of Education to create and deliver a five day experiential education program for students and teachers from all over the country. Up to date, more than 60,000 explorers both local and international have joined us in our trainings and experience the unique, one-of-a-kind adventures.
