Mohamad Faisal b Ahmad Fadzil

Mohamad Faisal b Ahmad Fadzil, Managing Director of Tanamera Tropical Spa Sdn Bhd is now managing his family spa and personal care business which first gained exposure and recognition in Germany.
 
Being quite a shy and an introvert chap, it was hard for him to mix with new people initially. His advice for budding entrepreneurs is simple. “There’s only one keyword and everything else is secondary. It is tenacity. If you give up easy, don’t go into business, period. Also, without integrity the wealth won’t last.” Faisal knew nothing about business initially. He focused more on selling, meeting clients and creating relationships with them.
 
Over time, the company has built partnerships that have stayed with them for years. At age of 43, Faisal has already clocked in many working years but the journey of then till now is the one where he has zero regrets as he believes that, that moment was what has moulded him to become the man he is today.

In Imran’s profession, interaction with people is a huge factor and it helps when he has to have the knowledge and skills that he learned when he was studying in KDU. “I always believe that when we are still young, take time to explore the world!
