May-Aug:           Izlyn's dichotomous worlds of corporate and creative collided in serendipity; when together with key collaborators, they dreamt up the unique and pioneering concept of staging a corporate internal messaging platform as a full blown musical - celebrating the journey of an institution towards its aspiration, fronted by a love story, with songs and lyrics meaningful to the united workforce as its soundtrack - in "TM The Musical - A Story of Convergence". This was a ground-breaking internal communications/employee engagement and brand profiling platform - 100 days from concept to the first show - to make TM and Malaysian history as the 1st GLC/Corporate to tell its story as a full fledged professionally staged musical. The overwhelming response culminated in TM taking the musical to Istana Budaya, Malaysia's National Theatre for 5 shows 14-16 August 2015; the Merdeka edition, to a total audience of 8,000 TM employees and key stakeholders. Of course, Izlyn has a cameo performance!
