Food & Fashion
19 January 2012
Continuing on with our Broadgate meets series; I spent some time with Khun Warabodee (Executive Assistant to CEO & Chairman).
Q: Tell us about what you do?
A: My job is assisting the CEO and accounting. Meaning I have overall responsibility for the groups financial statements. I assist the CEO with our current banking projects and take care of his schedule. If we have our partners visit Thailand, I look after them also.
Q: What do you enjoy most about your job and why?
A: I enjoy attending executive level meetings because I can learn a lot from the executives and CEO’s who attend. With accounting, I can enhance my knowledge as I do this daily, also we have an outsourced accountant who looks after me and we share best practice.
Q: What is your new year’s resolution?
A: I will continue to do my job to the best of my ability. But as our company grows I know my workload will increase so the challenge is to keep doing what I do but more of it! For my family, I will take care of them, as my Dad is not here. I will also redecorate my house.
Q: What are you passionate about?
A: Firstly, Passionate about investing – but if you asked me, invest in what? – I would have to say I’m just a normal employee and not a millionnaire. So I just deposit money into a savings account and get the interest. In the future, if I earned more money – then I would consult with my colleagues and managers for the best advice on where to invest.
Q: What do you enjoy spending your money on?
A: Fashion! – But not all of my money. My priority is my family and looking after their needs. Any money left over I spend on fashion and food. I’m not a millionaire so I don’t go for brand names. I like shopping in the sales especially Platinum.
Q: What motivates you in life?
A: I have many dreams. I’m sure many people would say they want to be a millionaire – right? And money is a part of that motivation. I want to carry on working as I’m only 28 but I imagine myself in 10 years being my own boss and having a business of some sort.
Q: Where do you see yourself in 5 years time?
A: It’s too short to tell! – But either owning a business or investing in my friends businesses.
