Brunei LNG organised a motivational talk for Pengiran Anak Puteri Hajah Rashidah Sa’adatul Bolkiah Secondary School Year 9 and 10 students recently.

Six speakers comprising young professionals working in various departments under Brunei LNG shared their experiences working in the oil and gas sector.

Among the objectives of the talk was to encourage students to step outside of their comfort zone and not be afraid of taking risks.

The speakers touched on the challenges they face not only in the workplace but also prior to starting their careers, and how strong work ethic and resilience overcame challenges.

They shared inspirational messages around choosing to challenge the status quo – whether they were females pursuing a career in a male dominated role or vice versa – and are grateful to work for a diverse and inclusive organisation like Brunei LNG that provides equal opportunities for all Bruneians, regardless of their gender, race and socio economic background.

Apart from the motivational talks, a liquid nitrogen demonstration was also conducted for students by representatives from Brunei LNG laboratory.

Among the speakers from Brunei LNG were planning engineer from Operations Syazana Serbini, head of reliability in engineering Zairuni Zainab, financial accountant Lim Hong Hua, business analyst Dayangku Mashdalina binti Pengiran Matahir, senior strategy and portfolio advisor Fauzi Mahmud and head of maintenance, execution and strategy Yumni Hamizah Hamdani.
