Steve Wozniak

Looks like Malaysia will be playing host to a legend in the tech community this November as Steve Wozniak, the co-founder of Apple will be in the country from 21 to 23 November.

He’ll be in Kuching, Sarawak specifically for the World Islamic Economic Forum (WIEF) where he’ll be speaking speak at the Face to Face session on a disruptive change.

“There have always been disruptive changes at play brought on by rapid advances in technology. The effects of disruption have rippled through every aspect of modern civilisation – just look at how personal computing has fundamentally transformed everything from the economy to how society functions from the ground up,” said Steve Wozniak.

Wozniak will be joining other speakers at the forum including Malaysia’s own Prime Minister, Dato’ Sri Najib Tun Razak. The forum, which has entered its 13th year, will be held at the Borneo Convention Centre in Kuching, Sarawak with the anchoring Forum discourse on the impact and challenges of disruptive change.

“We are pleased to have Steve Wozniak for WIEF’s 13th edition. Since our inaugural edition, the Forum has grown in size and scope to being a platform that brings together world leaders and captains of industry from a variety of different economies. Steve’s presence underscores the WIEF’s track record of championing collaboration particularly in times of disruptive change,” said Tun Musa Hitam, WIEF Foundation chairman.
