Des Prix Infinitus Media Leadership Excellence Awards recognises outstanding leaders and achievements across the Malaysia National Key Economic Areas (NKEA). Leadership Excellence Awards (LEA) works as an independent and non-partisan accreditation body with interest to connect, recognise and help empower leaders across the ASEAN region. Leadership Excellence Awards (LEA) is about bringing people together and promote cross-industry dialogues and pollination. We hope in the next five years; we can host, connect and recognise leaders across ASEAN, providing them with an avenue to network and tell their stories. We are proud to host our very first inauguration in Kuala Lumpur in conjunction with Malaysia’s 60th year of independence. Malaysia as a nation has come far since its independence, but the success of the country will not take place without the great leaders propelling industries - both in private and public sectors.
