Dato Roslan Khalid
Dato’ Roslan Khalid, Managing Director of KB Group.
Graduating in 1981 at 24 years old as the top student of the class of 1978 and a PAM Gold Medalist at the School of Architecture in UiTM, Roslan was head hunted for a position as an Assistant Architect at a well-known architectural firm. After a few years practicing in this architectural firm, he was offered a position as a Senior Manager with a Chinese Developer from 1983-1987, in charge of property development projects.
However, years later he faced an uncertain future when the local property market collapsed and he took the daring step at the age of 31, to set up an architectural practice, a bold move which was to mark the beginning of his journey as an entrepreneur.
Dato’ Roslan Khalid shares with KC Tai his extraordinary journey as an architect and developer during a casual chat over a cup of his favorite coffee.  Listening to Roslan as he frankly shares his journey  reveals a very humble and inspiring successful entrepreneur.



Preferring  quiet evenings chilling out with friends over dinner to parties and socializing at events, he enjoys fine dining. Professing a love for Japanese, Italian and Chinese and Thai seafood cuisine, Roslan likes to check out the many well known restaurants that can be found in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. What immediately becomes apparent for those that meet him will be his friendliness, regardless of their position or background.
“I try to make it to the gym about 4 times a week. I have two trainers’; one trainer at home who comes twice a week while the other trainer coaches me at the gym. I find weight training helps me to keep fit. I believe very much in living a healthy lifestyle,” he says energetically.  Dato’ Roslan fills up his days with exercise, ensuring adequate supplements at the same time managing his diet.  Many friends remark that he doesn’t look his age and despite having just celebrated his 61-Year birthday recently, he exudes the energy of a much younger person.  In fact Roslan admits that he does not like to dwell in the past preferring to manage his business and charting it’s future.

Share this on WhatsApp相处艺术。家庭的气氛很重要,需要夫妇来经营。家庭气氛好,孩子在这样的环境下成长,人格才能健全。但是现在的夫妻关系好不好?  不好,冲突很大。   我在海口推广中国文化时,有一次跟一群朋友吃饭,了解到同桌的四位女性,三位已经离婚了,一位准备离婚。相逢即是有缘,这个饭可不能白吃,要对得起这些有缘人,所以我就慢慢找机会。跟大家说着话,突然话锋一转,我说:“夫妻相处只要守住一句真言,保证白头偕老。” 那位准备离婚的朋友眼睛瞪得很大,耳朵都竖起来了。我接着就说:“结婚以后,只看对方的优点,不看对方的缺点。” 我这个话讲完,这位朋友眉头深锁,回了我一句话:“蔡老师,好难。”     有那么难吗?   我们不妨看看身旁热恋中的男女,真的印证了一句俗语,“只羡鸳鸯不羡仙”。常常五点半下班,他五点的时候就已经坐不住了,“怎么这么慢,下班后我要跟我女朋友看电影,还要带她去买东西”,每天只想着怎么样让女朋友高兴一点。那个时候心里想着我能为她做什么,所以恋爱的感觉是温暖甜美的。当有一个人处处都替你着想的时候,你会很欢喜,甚至半夜还会笑醒。   …
