the next 30
The annual The Next 30 List recognizes 30 Young Leaders of tomorrow who are shaping Malaysia’s future. They are the Change Makers and Trend Setters that are using their voice and actions to make a change. Local Heroes who are driving positive impact and being the catalyst of change in Malaysia.

“Change makers take risks and are ready to die for excellence than to give excuses and live for mediocrity.”

Showcasing a diverse National selection of bright young minds who have turned their ideas into reality. A list but not a ranking, The Next 30 aims to inspire, empower and connect young people who are pushing boundaries at every level. The first edition of it will be revealed in November 2022.

We are looking for:

How is the list created?

Throughout the year, we undertake extensive market research, keeping an eye on the news and across the industry, to see who’s making waves and change and setting trends and so on. We also get a lot of referrals from our large network, and we put them all on our long list of nominees.

The Council will be assembled in September. The Council is a group of experts who assist us in identifying the next generation of leaders and change makers. The Council, comprised of industry titans from a variety of industries, nominates candidates for consideration and assesses our longlist to help The Next 30 discover the worthiest honorees—they are our eyes and ears on the ground, bringing important insight and knowledge.

We have enlisted the support of The Council members throughout Malaysia to nominate and vet candidates for The Next 30 List.

When will I find out if Ive made the list?

We aim to contact all applicants by the end of October 2022.
