In what is being seen as a first for the real estate industry here in Thailand, American Management Association (AMA) has recently teamed up with property developer Magnolia Quality Development Corporation (MQDC), to provide self-development programmes to residents of MQDC’s Whizdom-branded condominiums.
The first of the new training courses will commence on 25th July 2015 and is titled ‘Critical Thinking’. Further courses will be provided every two months and will include ‘Communication and Presentation skill’, ‘Problem Solving and Decision Making’, and ‘Preparing for leadership: What it takes to take the Lead’.

Wilai Somdungjate-Ottevaere, Chief Marketing Officer of MQDC, commented: “We have signed a long-term partnership agreement between Whizdom and AMA to provide our buyers and Whizdom Society members training programmes every two months. This programme is in line with our brand’s commitment to build a knowledge sharing community within our projects. We aim to provide additional value to Whizdom condominium residents who are usually upwardly mobile people and keen to enhance their personal skills for greater success in life as well as in their professional pursuits.”
She added that the training would be world-class and introduce a completely new dimension to Thailand’s property sector, being the first time a residential developer has offered long-term self-development benefits to its buyers.
Somdungjate-Ottevaere said that participants will also receive an internationally recognised certificate from the AMA which can be included in their resumes.
There are currently four Whizdom-branded developments in Thailand, including ‘Whizdom Connect Sukhumvit’, ‘Whilzdom Avenue Ratchada-Ladprao’, ‘Whizdom The Exclusive’, and ‘[email protected] Station’. The latter two projects are still under construction. When they are completed, more than 1,500 families will be accommodated in Whizdom-branded residences.
