The Sun | 10 November 1999

MELBOURNE, Tues: Young Malaysian entrepreneur Patricia Yeoh was given a rare honour when she was invited by her alma mater to address graduates at the recent University of New England's (UNE) Spring graduation ceremony in Armidale.

Yeoh,30, who heads her own management consultancy PM Resources in Kuala Lumpur, is recognised for her contribution to the service industry.

Vice-Chancellor Prof Ingrid Moses, said the university had acknowledged distinguished alumni towards the end of their careers.

"It is fitting, however, to introduce the award to recognise young achievers like Yeoh, who in such a few years had accomplished so much." - Bernama
