Kudsia Kahar

Co-founder & CEO of Kudsia+Co
Moderator & Workshop Leader
Kudsia's name is synonymous with the success and growth of the commercial radio industry in Malaysia. She has over 25 years of experience as a broadcaster under her belt, and was at the helm of top Malaysian stations such as Hitz.FM, ERA, Sinar FM and THR. Kudsia Kahar remains the only person who has managed over 20 radio stations in her career, including Malaysia's sole women-targeted English station, Capital FM.

Now the co-founder and CEO of Kudsia+Co (an effective communications training company), Kudsia regularly speaks at regional and international conferences and forums, training the C-Suite of corporations on developing an engaging presence for public speaking engagements and as spokespersons.

Traveling solo since the age of 19, she is also a strong advocate for companies to do more where equal pay and sexual harassment policies are concerned. A firm believer in women-empowerment, Kudsia remains the only female president ever elected for Commercial Radio Malaysia - the country's sole association for private radio stations. The only thing her travel bucket list does not include is bungee-jumping.

Moderator for:
SEXUAL HARASSMENT WHILE TRAVELLING: THE REALITY & HOW TO OVERCOME IT 

Featuring: Jin JeongÖzge Elif Özer & Petrina Thong 

As overseas (and even domestic) travel becomes more accessible to women, and more and more women travel, they come face to face with different situations in diverse cultures. Some of these situations may be at best annoying and at worst, dangerous. In some countries, sexual harassment is a hazard that every woman traveller needs to be prepared for. In this panel, three women travellers will share their experiences of such harassment, how they managed to deflect the unwanted attention and in unavoidable circumstances, overcame it.


Workshop:
TRAVEL SAFE, TRAVEL SMART, TRAVEL NOW: A PRIVATE SESSION
An intimate, no holds barred session of travel experiences and how to stay safe
With Kudsia Kahar, Priscilla Patrick and Özge Elif Özer

No strangers to travelling, these three women have collectively explored over 60 countries spread over seven continents. What that really means is that they are an endless trove of travel and other tales. From harrowing to delightful, these women share stories of what it’s like being a woman on the road, and most importantly, how to stay safe while you’re on it.
