The Backstory.

The founders at Authority Institute – Dato James, Candy and Maverick – are often asked out for coffee to have their brains picked, usually by business owners who needed fresh, low-cost and practical marketing ideas.


The Reality.

If you’ve been active in business for ~3 years, you probably have a couple of low-hanging fruits that your competitors would wish they had.


The Problem.

A coffee is often too short a time to walk through the ideation process, since each business is uniquely different. Plus, we don’t have enough time to follow up on the outcomes of the ideas we came up with.


The Solution.

We invite them (and their teams) to a marketing hackathon where they can:

💡 Generate New Marketing Ideas using our Market Domination Framework

🚦 Activate the Right Opportunities with the A.R.M. Test

✅ Validate your Marketing Action Plans using Rapid Hive Masterminds (with other business owners and key leaders from different industries)

🧭 Accelerate your Marketing Results with a structured ideation process, complete with reusable canvases and worksheets

🚀 Replicate your Success by repeating the process every 90 days.


Who Should Attend?

To make sure we get results for each participating company, we design the Marketing Hackathon for:

  1. Business Owners with existing teams
  2. Key Leaders (Department Heads) from marketing, sales and business development
  3. Solopreneurs with validated offers

As a matter of fact, if you’ve been active in business for more than three years, you’ll be among the businesses that will walk away with the MOST value.

*This Marketing Hackathon is NOT suitable for businesses in ideation stages.

Maverick is by far the BEST EMAIL MARKETER Trainer in Malaysia and probably the World. His copy is second to none. His coaching style is engaging, high informative, hands-on, quirky, fun and truly never a dull moment.

I highly and Strongly recommend Maveric for your company’s needs. He’s truly the best and worth every single cent of investment.

His experience and knowledge are truly in-depth and his style is no-nonsense and proven to work.

Maverick loves to share and help and he’s truly a great educator.

Teacher Raj Ridvan Singh
Award-Winning Social Entrepreneur, Educational Revolutionist & Social Activist

I always believe that marketing is an art of human psychology, and this has been validated by observing how well Maverick master and play this piece of art via his one-to-one discovery call and masterclasses.

His marketing framework is logical, systematic, and easy to understand for beginners like us, and he has not offered values in methodology but also implementation of certain key steps to drive results, this is one of the most valuable aspects of his classes. I hope I can close my training and coaching business sales just like him one day.

Resourceful, smart, and selfless marketing strategist, who is at times can be a little humorous, a highly recommended digital marketing expert and guru that you can go to!

Vivmmie Lau
Certified Image Consultant, Corporate Trainer and Coach

I met Maverick in 2012 when he was running Kickstart.my.

He’s always full of ideas and strategies which worked. He’s coached me and my revenue increased more than 100% year-on-year.

Most importantly, he genuinely wants you to succeed.

I am so glad our paths crossed and for anyone looking to boost their sales, he is the go-to guy! This, I can guarantee!

Mun Foong Ng
Founder of WanderZoom & Phoenix Signature Kitchen

I love Mav’s work. His presentation is slick, his content is always insightful and he’s funny.

I’ve known Mav for quite some time but have only recently joined his webinars (and am following his LinkedIn course) – and I’m grateful for that.

I’ve learned so much from Mav! Thanks for what you do, Mav!

Zaim Mohzani
Director of External Relations, KSI Strategic Institute for Asia Pacific

Maverick is one of the best in his field.

I have always experienced him to be resourceful, super generous with his knowledge, and a kind human being.

He is committed to all his clients and if you’d need any help with your business marketing, reach out to him!

Thiva Subramaniam
Digital Strategist & Culture Consultant

Maverick is the one in this region to work with to create invaluable and insightful webinars that is authentic and a lot more!

I was at one of his Zoom sessions and he has definitely impressed me with his skillful presentation. He could actually share slides without using Zoom’s “Share” function, fascinating me as an audience.

Thank you too for going the extra mile to follow up with me when I asked a question almost close to the end of the online Zoom meeting. He has made the special effort to follow up with his responses to my question by the very next morning.

You need to not just learn from him what is the invisible engine and framework that drives his authentic and value-packed style of presentation, you have to practice HOW he does it with a heart and amazing mind too.

Pei Yun Cheng
Multiperspective Strategist & Creator

Maverick is truly an amazing gift in the branding and marketing space. He brilliantly knows how to get his message across in a way that “wow” his audience.

His refreshingly insightful knowledge comes through practical implementations, which are easy for anyone to follow – no matter their expertise level or field of study.

I got lots of golden nuggets from Maverick’s presentation on copywriting, storytelling, marketing…and many more!

Wendy Song
Copywriter & Digital Marketer

This guy is a genius in his field.

Attended his workshop and he shared so many insightful tips on increasing my presence on LinkedIn, utilizing various tools to ease postings, writing articles, creating right-sized images, how to attract the target market etc.

Ever need digital marketing advice – he’s the person to go to!

Geetha Kandiah
ASEAN Intellectual Property Expert, KASS International

When it comes to email marketing, Maverick knows his stuff.

I’ve watched him fill events, workshops and his bank accounts with just emails – well written, highly engaging, results-driven.

Before this, I never knew emails were an effective marketing tool, but after working with Maverick on a few projects, I see (and experience) the positive outcomes myself. Just one campaign and it has brought in $10k in revenue, with a couple of deals in the pipeline.

Thanks to Mav, when it comes to email marketing, I’m sold!

Alex Tan
Award-Winning Leadership Thought Leader, Avidity International

I attended Maverick’s Email Profits Masterclass and I had a great experience.

Maverick not only shared tactics and hacks when it comes to email marketing but he also shared strategic frameworks for demand generation.

Maverick’s training is highly recommended not just for email marketers but for anyone who wants to improve their marketing strategy.

Bob Low
LinkedIn Marketing Consultant

I have the opportunity to be coached by Maverick on new profits and marketing – he made things very simplified yet effective to capture other people’s attention.

I also had the opportunity to be working very closely with Mav in some projects – love his commitment to underpromise and overdeliver!

Wesley Chan, CSP
Sales Breakthrough Coach and Keynote Speaker

I have met & heard of Maverick’s work during his days leading Kickstart.my and assisting many of the emerging entrepreneurs that I know.

I kept seeing his work and good recommendations coming from many groups in the learning & development industry, but I did not check them out. It was until, recently that I decided to start attending and being engaged with Maverick’s online learning sessions, that I really find his content and his strategies to be very ‘Refreshing & Relevant’ especially in this changing world, post-pandemic.

He is also a charismatic & persuasive presenter, and truly relates real-life updated content to help his clients – Many of them are Trainers, Coaches & Speakers like myself.

I would highly recommend Maverick’s guidance and coaching for both corporates and entrepreneurs out there – Especially when you are looking at mastering the art of High Ticket Persuasion & Communication.

Well Done again Maverick! Thank You for always contributing back to the community!

Michael Teoh
Founder of Thriving Talents, Global Advisor & KOL of Microsoft

If anyone delivers quality consistently it is Maverick. I have never walked away from a conversation, webinar, workshop or talk that hasn’t been insightful and fruitful with Mav.

I’ve attended several of his workshops and took his Webinar Profits Intensive course. Which is well designed that even busy professionals can implement with results.

His practical approach and after-workshop implementation support is phenomenal. This is where the magic has happened for me in taking my events online and building a better social media presence.

His level of integrity, vast knowledge, and deep compassion make him my favorite human on this planet and a trusted mentor with his genius solutions.

Chitrah Karthigeyan
Innovator & Founder, Soularist

I have known Mav since my early MaGIC days when I was trying to connect to various startup communities in Malaysia and I was told he was the person to reach out to if I want to tap into a vibrant and active community – that time it was Kickstart.my, one of the largest entrepreneur community in this part of town.

This guy brooks no-nonsense and he is also a straight shooter, making him one of the best people to discuss possibilities and opportunities. He believes in marketing fundamentals just as I do and he definitely amassed a wealth of experience when it comes to communication, email marketing, and touching first bases with potential clients.

If you are looking to scale your B2B via marketing, then I will suggest for you to reach out to Maverick for your next move. Ask him about the copywriting magic.
