Here are some gems I picked up from the Summit.
Dato’ Seri Sharizat in asking Dato’ Seri Najib to convey the ministry’s requests to PM :
Before we put forth our requests, we would have thought them through many times, because we don’t like to hear No for an answer. We like to hear Yes all the time.
Dato' Seri Najib in reply : Actually, men like to hear women say Yes all the time.
(Note : The above is culled from my memory which may be slightly holey. I didn’t write them down as I didn’t have paper and pen on the ready, didn’t expect them to come up with these delectable quotes. Incidentally, this is the first time I attend a conference which didn’t have pencil and paper in the conference bag).
