I'm not only a hopeless romantic but also a person who's bad in dressing and grooming as well. Hence, the success of ever attracting a female to get with me is close to nil.
So then, I enrolled myself into the Stay Sharp 101 for Men Workshop that's organized by Gillette, the world's leading male grooming brand together with Jobstreet.com, the #1 Job Site in Malaysia which is a grooming workshop to address on how men can improve and better themselves.
The workshop was held at KLPAC (Kuala Lumpur Performing Arts Centre):
The building inside is huge let alone the plot of land itself and it was filled with what theatre performance was to come:
These were the ones that were going to address to us during that day:
Procter & Gamble Communications Manager, Ms Goh Seng Jone cited author Jyoti Arora in her remark about the unique collaboration, “It’s not very often that an opportunity comes knocking. But when it does, you better be bathed and dressed and ready to answer its call. This quote resonates well with Gillette’s endeavour to help men present themselves in the best light possible at all times. In another step to groom young professionals for better career opportunities, it’s our privilege to have JobStreet.com on board to champion our effort. ”
JobStreet.com Country Manager, Ms. Chook Yuh Yng, said, “In the business of matching jobs with people through technology, it is our aim to bridge the gap between employers and candidates. Over the years, employers have raised the concern of getting the right candidate for hiring. Many candidates failed to notice that good grooming does influence their chance of getting a job offer. Our collaboration with Gillette is a good start for us to address this concern and to help meet the employers’ hiring needs more effectively.”
The first speaker giving a brief introduction to the workshop was a representative from Jobstreet.com:
Then later came on image coach, former television presenter and mother of two Datin Sharifah Shawati:
She shared,“Looking good is not just about throwing on the most expensive suit and polishing your shoes. To outshine your competitors during an interview, a man has to give attention to details like a clean shave or a pressed shirt as it helps assert your professionalism and confidence.”
After a short tea break, versatile actor, model and mixed martial arts fighter Peter Davis joined with director, producer, screenwriter and actor Bront Palarae in an interview session sharing their secrets to staying sharp for all their passions in life and the way Gillette Mach 3 Turbo Sensitive influences their personal grooming style and daily routine.
Finally, Brand Manager, Regional Design of Gillette & Venus Asean Australia, India, Japan & Korea, Mr. Lee Yik Hun shared on key steps on how to get the best shave.
