On a personal level, Saliza said that she will have satisfaction in life if she is able to balance everything that she does. She wants to see her business continue to grow and be successful, and that the same values she applies now would be handed down to the next generation of women entrepreneurs. She hopes that she and her company can continue to do good things for community and country, and be impactful even if they are just small impacts. “I am not perfect but I have clear conscience in the things that I want to do as long as the intentions are good. Life is short. Be good or be screwed,” she politely joked.
Besides her mother, the other professional figure who inspires Saliza is the former CEO of PepsiCo Inc., Ms. Indra Nooyi. “I had a wonderful opportunity of listening to Ms Nooyi’s talk during her visit to the Global Women Summit in Kuala Lumpur back in 2013,” she said. Ms. Nooyi reminded her audience that whatever that we do, it will have an indirect impact to our children. “So, we all have to continue to do good because when we are no longer holding a position in a company, our legacy will be gone if we do not include family values as our pillars,” Saliza added.
Looking ahead, Saliza plans to introduce BG Monitrack solutions to the market, in line with Malaysia’s Industrial Revolution 4.0. At the moment, she is in the final process of discussing with several technological partners to adopt and integrate AI and Big Data. Expanding on BG Capital’s event community space platform known as THEBASE, she also recently signed an MOU with a newly established Malaysian food delivery company, where BG Capital would be spearheading the activities to recruit and train home based food entrepreneurs to capitalise on the market using technologies. “I also hope to bring in “sexy” to the security industry. And by sexy, I meant embracing the embodiment of femininity, intelligence, wisdom and being confident with yourself as a woman of worth.”
