Nilai U students get to listen and learn from hospitality expert, Michael Saxon.

Michael Saxon


Nilai University has a long tradition of inviting noteworthy speakers to share their unique experiences and insights with our students and staff. These have included public figures such as Tunku Abdul Aziz Tunku Ibrahim, esteemed members of religious organisations such as Bishop Emeritus Dennis C Dutton and highly respected academics such as Royal Prof Ungku Abdul Aziz. Having such distinguished individuals speak to our students is very much in line with Nilai University’s ‘Enrichment for Life’ philosophy.

Latest speaker to grace the podium is Michael Saxon, Director of Group Hospitality and Lifestyle at Eastern and Oriental Bhd and also judge on AFC Celebrity Chef. With decades of experience in the hospitality and tourism industry, Saxon shared with Nilai U students the many career opportunities available to them and also highlighted what it takes to succeed in this booming industry.
