“I started my first ever business back in 2011 when I was still studying my Degree and my business were officially registered. As I did not have basic knowledge to start it up properly, I had to close my business in 2012.
In 2019, I received a forwarded text from Whatsapp about Livewire ‘Bright Ideas’ programme, I decided to participate it. It was so interesting and easy to grasp, hence I participate the second programme which was ‘Business Plan’. These programmes helped me a lot on how to start up my business properly.
I highly recommend to anyone to participate any Livewire programmes and I can guarantee you will not regret it. You will learn many beneficial business knowledge and information specifically in Brunei and be surrounded with the alumni to help you anytime..”

“When I join one of the LiveWIRE programs back in 2016, I never thought that it affecting the way how I run my business nowadays. LiveWIRE opens a path for me to interact with other businesses and learn new lessons about business management. Since my farms located in Sabah due to financial difficulties here in Brunei as a starter, from getting the order for my clients only through various marketplaces in Sabah and now do a partnership with more than 13 farmers in Sabah with more than 50 hectares of land dedicated to my clients is all thanks to LiveWIRE giving me a platform in term of ideas sharing, business information & advised. I hope in return I would share my experience through my master research in agriculture management which will be published this year. Thanks LiveWIRE for the support & encouragement.”

“Back in High School, I never dreamed to become a Businessman or an Entrepreneur. It never even crossed my mind. I was Naive. After multiple failed attempts to secure a job, multiple times of being rejected, I was Doubtful of myself and lost where to head next. Just being in this situation of not able to secure my Basic Needs puts me in a state of Depression. However, LiveWire changed me. Back in 2019, after taking Bright Ideas, Business Plan Series, Become a Successful Owner Manager and Leadership Camp, it opened my eyes and mind to tap into business and start a fresh new road towards success. I got back up and build my success from scratch. Applied whatever is learned from LiveWire. Now, life is just way better. Instead of looking for a job, i have become an Employer. But my journey has just begun. There is more to come for sure. All I can do now is thank LiveWire Brunei for showing me and guiding me towards a better light. I'll end my speech with a quote from Chris Grosser, "Opportunities don't happen, you create them". Thank you. - Mr. Paning Free.”
