How an Innovative CEO Leverage Tech to Improve Outcomes
Education is an interesting industry, credits to the people behind it – the ones who fuelled the institutions with their incredibly interesting backgrounds.
Mr Edmund Edward is no exception. With over 29 years in the industry, he has witnessed the transformation that took over our education scene and has enlightened us with his knowledge throughout our journey.
He first started teaching Accounting subject at a tuition centre before working as a freelance lecturer in local colleges around 1998. However, due to a decline in the economy at that period, many colleges opted to hire a full-time teaching power. Nevertheless, that does not mark the end of his journey. Being an innovator at heart, he challenged himself by foraying into tertiary education industry and founded ALC College with strong support from his fellow friends. Today, he is the proud CEO of Peninsula College.
Advanced Learning Centre (ALC)
Reflecting on ALC’s remarkable achievements, Peninsula College was born. Mr Edmund explained, “As part of the ongoing developments, ALC was rebranded to Peninsula College. We are striving to develop our own diplomas and (we are) working on offering wider subjects to students.”
A few years on, Peninsula College has successfully expanded to three campuses around Malaysia – City Campus, Lighthouse Campus, Strait Quay Campus, and soon-to-be-completed Ship Campus.
Sqayy: Technology tool that makes life easier
Now, Mr Edmund has a more up-to-date view of his entire operations, from academic to finance. Moreover, the visibility benefits his institution tremendously. “Sqayy fulfilled my needs. It helps me concentrate on my job as the CEO, focusing on what is important for the well-being of my college. Since it takes care of my operations, I can completely focus on the business.”
Eyes on the horizon
Sqayy will continue to be an integral part of his operations as his campuses continue to grow.
