Personal Development and Management > Human Capital Development & Management in Oil & Gas – Virtual Instructor Led Training (VILT)

About this Virtual Instructor Led Training (VILT)

Developing capability and managing key talent is not without its challenges in the Oil & Gas industry. As senior professionals retire, taking with them valuable years of experience and knowledge, it is critical for you – as HR professionals – to formulate a sustainable plan for succession planning and talent development and ensure that there is no disruption to your workforce’s capabilities.

A chemist by training, her interest in people development was so intense that she decided to switch profession during her earlier years of employment, and she has never looked back since. She has gathered extensive hands-on experience, leading key projects and training others in the above-mentioned areas during her 25-year tenure with PETRONAS, Malaysia. A project that she was particularly proud of in completing was the transformation of the PETRONAS Management Training Institute into a regional Leadership Learning Center. While leading this project, she was given the opportunity to be seconded for a few months to General Electric (GE), a Fortune 500 multinational known for its cutting-edge Leadership Development innovation.

More than one third of her extensive tenure in PETRONAS was spent at the company’s Leadership Center (formerly known as PETRONAS Management Training Sdn Bhd), performing various job roles ranging from Learning Researcher, Program Developer, Trainer, Learning Consultant and Head of a Program Faculty. During her role as the Head of Leadership, Management & Supervisory Program Faculty, she led a pool of trainers in the running of more than 50 learning programs delivering close to 2,000 learning man-days per year. In addition, she was instrumental in the development of several key human capital development philosophies, concepts, systems and processes currently being used in PETRONAS. Among those that she was extensively involved in developing are the current PETRONAS Leadership Competency Model & Development Approach and the Performance Management Philosophy & Process. Most of these processes required a TOT program to be rolled out to all PETRONAS subsidiaries across the Globe.

She was also tasked at guiding a project team to enhance the PETRONAS Employee Recruitment Process with the aim to simplify while enhancing its effectiveness. This was the last project that she led before opting out for an early retirement in 2016 to pursue her other interests in life which includes cycling, jungle tracking and mountain climbing.

In keeping her interest in Learning & Development alive after retirement, she has been delivering programs and providing consultancy on competency management for Oil & Gas companies in Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, India and Oman. Among her most recent work deliveries are 4 separate competency management projects with the Geoscience Skill Group of PETRONAS (October 2018), PERTAMINA Hulu Mahakam Balikpapan, Indonesia (November 2018), Tenaga Nasional Berhad Malaysia (April 2019) and the Petroleum Engineering Skill Group of PETRONAS (September 2019). She recently completed a SMART programme for a National Oil Company in Southeast Asia which focused on transforming capability development from a tightly regulated process into a self driven capability management eco-system.
