I still use many of the things I learned at Patana on a daily basis. Something I have benefited from a lot is the experience and knowledge about different ways of thinking across different cultures.
I feel my time at Patana has really helped my ability to empathise with people from different cultures. This ability has really helped me in my work-life, seeing as I’m currently working a country where the culture is very different from my own.
I studied Automotive Business Management at IVA Driebergen Business School in Utrecht, Netherlands. Cars are my passion, they always have been. A career in the automotive industry has always been my dream. At university however, I realised that in order to gain a competitive advantage in the automotive sector, knowledge from outside this sector is very helpful. For this reason I decided that when it was time for me to start looking for a company where I could write my final thesis, I would look for something outside of the automotive sector. I got connected to a company named Rabbit Finance in Bangkok, here I completed my final research project and thesis. Af- ter this placement I was approached by someone from the parent company of Rabbit Finance, VGI. I liked the position I was offered and decided to take it, since then I have been living and working in Bangkok. I am part of the business development team at VGI. The focus of my team is new product development to help the company reach its strategic goals
