How long have you worked for IDP Education?
Almost 4 months
Can you describe your role?
My role is to grow the business in every country of SEA region to meet the financial and strategic objectives of IDP Education, to build and retain strong talents and to make the organisation the best place to work.
What are your plans for IDP in your country?
In SEA region, we have three solid business streams – Australia Student Placement, IELTS and ELT (English Language Teaching). The plan is to continue solid growth in all business lines. Student placement is always our core focus and we will continue to work closely with all clients. At the same time, we will accelerate the development of Multi-destination Student Placement to broaden our offerings.
Can you share with us your educational and work background?
I was educated in Thailand. I completed a Bachelor of Business Administration from Chulalongkorn University. I got an MBA from Sasin Graduate Institute of Business Administration in Thailand. It offers joint programs between Chulalongkorn University in Thailand and Kellogg and Wharton from the USA. I spent one semester on exchange program at York University of Toronto.
What do you like to do outside of work?
I tried to keep up with routine exercise on weight lifting and boxing. Other than that I take my mum out to enjoy the weekend.
Which local restaurant would you recommend in your side of the world?
I would encourage you to be adventurous. Street food in Thailand is famous for great taste with so many varieties. They are also clean enough for foreigners.
What motto do you try to live by?
Live in the present time, do your best and you’ll be happy.
