Iqbal Hafiedz of Malaysia has been an outstanding debater (top speaker at Asians) as well as an excellent debate trainer. He is excited about the conference.
I actually was just been appointed to be the head of our newly created debate unit in my university (Universiti Teknologi MARA Malaysia). Trying to settle in my new job and a first job as well is quite stressful. I saw your posting regarding the international conference you'll be holding in April and this looks like an excellent opportunity for me to start my career as an educator and the time is ripe for me to start my research into some debate related study.
I am extremely exited about this but I am inexperienced and would probably need some support and guidance. Omar has promised to help me with the paper I am planning to write.
I will be submitting my abstract by the deadline, but since this is my first time, I would like to attend the conference even if my paper doesn't make the cut.
