Ambar Hamid’s Wealth Thing Seminar In London, UK

Hello from the Cumberland Hotel at Ambar Hamid’s Wealth Thing Seminar in London, UK!

Actually, if you look closely at the photograph above, you’d actually notice that I am not physically in the seminar room.

That’s because on a recent trip to Thailand, I was involved in a minor motorcycle accident, which prevented me from being able to leave for London in time for the Wealth Thing Seminar.

Fortunately, Ambar Hamid was gracious enough to allow me to present my Wealth Thing Seminar training virtually, so I was actually able to conduct my presentation from the comfort of my room at the Elizabeth Hotel in Singapore.

As you can see from the photo, the right side of my face is bandaged as I prepare to make my virtual presentation for the Wealth Thing Seminar audience at 2am Singapore time.

Even though I was not physically at the Wealth Thing Seminar, the attendees still had the opportunity to meet other speakers like Donna Fox, Robert Puddy, Greg Secker, Andrew Barnett and Tamkin Riaz.

I was very disappointed to have missed my trip to London this time around, but very much look forward to additional opportunities to travel there sometime in the near future.

Hello from the Singapore Expo at The SMART Seminar 2008 in Singapore!

Stuart Tan And Simon Leung At The SMART Seminar 2008 Singapore

After one hell of an event at The SMART Seminar 2008 in Malaysia last weekend, Stuart Tan and I knew that we had a ton of expectations to meet this weekend when we debuted The SMART Seminar in Singapore.

Even though The SMART Seminar in Malaysia delivered big, we had to make do with the absence of two of our expert speakers, who were unable to be replaced within just a few short days’ notice.

Fortunately, Stuart Tan and I were able to pull a few strings with a little more time on our hands, and we used the extra week to bring on board two additional powerhouse speakers for The SMART Seminar in Singapore:

And yes, our new speakers are in addition to the same expert talents who presented at The SMART Seminar Malaysia the previous week, including Anik Singal, Ewen Chia, Lee Collins, Robin Collins, Donna Fox, Mike Morgan, Mark Widawer and Robert Puddy.

As expected, our surprise mystery speakers gave jaw dropping performances, and the entire audience were completely floored by the level of information shared in their content-packed presentations.

Much like the previous weekend in Malaysia, The SMART Seminar in Singapore also brought the speakers and attendees together with the breakout sessions…

But in addition to the two new speakers, what distinguished The SMART Seminar in Singapore was that we actually streamed most of the event through live video so people could watch the presentations all around the world!

Over 100 viewers joined us from all across the world throughout the weekend, including other top name marketers like Mark Joyner, Matt Bacak and several others.

Overall, I would definitely consider the two week adventure of The SMART Seminar a tremendous success.

It was first seminar of its kind, and Stuart Tan and I are very much looking forward to continuing this epic era for many years to come, growing the project and expanding even to more areas around the world.

But of course, none of this would have been possible without the help of The SMART Seminar team and speakers…

So here, I’d like to express my sincere thanks to Anik Singal, Ewen Chia, Stephen Pierce, Mike Morgan, Lee Collins, Robin Collins, Mike Koenigs, Mark Widawer, Donna Fox, Robert Puddy, Andy Huang, Cassey Lim and Terence Yao for making The SMART Seminar 2008 a remarkable experience.

Last, but most certainly not least, a special thanks to my partner and awesome friend, the most giving and generous guy I know, my co-host of The SMART Seminar – Stuart Tan.

Stuart, I’m grateful for our partnership and friendship, and look forward to working on our continued and upcoming projects together in the not-so-distant future!

To The SMART Seminar 2009 and beyond – see y’all next year!

The SMART Seminar 2008 In Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Hello from Rm 2203 of the Boulevard Hotel at first ever The SMART Seminar in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia!

boulevard malaysia
The SMART Seminar 2008 in Malaysia is one of two back-to-back weekend events hosted by Stuart Tan and myself, and we’re scheduled to continue with The SMART Seminar in Singapore next week.

This past weekend in Malaysia, we kicked off The SMART Seminar with some of the most talented speakers from all around the world that I’m proud to call my friends, partners and mentors…

The SMART Seminar Malaysia Speakers

In front of a packed room full of information-hungry attendees, we were blown away by the valuable information presented by Anik Singal, Ewen Chia, Lee Collins, Robin Collins, Donna Fox, Mike Morgan, Mark Widawer and Robert Puddy.

I’ve seen every one of these powerful speakers present before, but never have I witnessed such a tremendous flood of solid content that was shared among them than at The SMART Seminar.

As the event organizers, Stuart Tan and myself were extremely grateful to the speakers for their willingness to share not only in their individual presentations, but also the group round tables in between breaks…

The SMART Seminar Malaysia Breakout Sessions

Both the speakers and the attendees agree that these breakout sessions added a ton of addition value to The SMART Seminar experience because not only did it help the speakers build trust and relationship with the attendees, but it also gave the attendees the chance to ask each speaker questions personally in small group settings.

And even though we were truly in the presence of greatness, Stuart Tan and I were also proud to have in attendance some of Malaysia’s well-known Internet Marketers as well, including Patric Chan, Gobala Krishnan and Vince Tan.

As always, no Internet Marketing conference is complete without a speaker VIP dinner, and of course, The SMART Seminar is no exception.

On our final evening in Malaysia, the awesome folks at MindValley sponsored our evening of fun at the Kuala Lumpur Marriott, where we were joined by our good friend, the legendary Mark Joyner, who was also in town for another event.

The SMART Seminar Malaysia VIP Dinner

Overall, Stuart Tan and I believe that The SMART Seminar Malaysia this past weekend has exceeded our expectations, and we can’t wait to continue The SMART Seminar next weekend in Singapore.

However, we did have some last minute cancellations from a few of our speakers, who were unfortunately not able to make it to Asia for The SMART Seminar this time around.

Robert Puddy was a last minute replacement for Paulie Sabol, but we weren’t able to replace Ben Mack or Ross Goldberg at such short notice.

Luckily, we do have replacements for them next week in Singapore, so you’ll have to stay tuned to see who our new mystery speakers are going to be :)

Special thanks to the indispensable rockstars of my team, Andy Huang and Cassey Lim, for helping us make The SMART Seminar 2008 a success!

I look forward to updating you about The SMART Seminar 2008 in Singapore shortly, but in the meantime, here are several more fun memories of The SMART Seminar 2008 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia:
