George Aveling appointed as Adjunct Professor at UNITAR International University
Tack TMI Malaysia, 26th January 2022
We are pleased and proud to announce that CEO of Tack TMI Malaysia, George Aveling, has been appointed as Adjunct Professor, of Education and Leadership at the UNITAR International University Graduate School of Management. George was selected, from among a number of prominent, influential and experienced industry experts, due to his vast experience in the Malaysian training and consulting industry.
George’s appointment is in line with UNITAR’s efforts to ensure its graduates’ employability in the job market. A recent survey conducted by Express Employment Professionals highlighted that due to the pandemic, one of the biggest challenges when hiring potential candidates is their lack of soft skills.
Graduates who are willing to learn, self-driven, critical thinkers, problem solvers, effective and empathetic communicators and agile enough to adapt to a highly competitive work environment are highly in demand. It is especially essential for employees who are customer-facing to have higher “EQ” – to be more in touch with their emotions, insights and “inner knowing”. These soft skills may be even more highly sought after by some organisations than the standard qualifications.
“I am honoured to be appointed by UNITAR International University. I see this as my opportunity to assist UNITAR to build quality graduates as a part of Malaysia’s nation-building efforts. We have been involved in major projects in the leadership, change management and service culture space in Malaysia. This will give me an opportunity to share practical lessons, learned from the University of Life.”

Having been in the learning and development and customer services industry for over 15 years, and part of the Tack TMI Global Network, George has consistently been advocating the importance of soft skills that help individuals, teams and organisations to be more effective. His vast experience with various industry leaders gives him the insight to know precisely what it is that employers look for in a potential candidate.
