Vivier's Ladies Share The Source of Their Drive For Power And Success
In the digital world where societal changes can be more abrupt than ever, it is crucial to combat whatever comes up while still moving forward with strong steady steps. To do so, impetus and a poised strategy are indispensable. Nine Thai women, each successful in their fields, share with us the factors that have steered them throughout their careers and which will take them into the future.
1/9 April Srivikorn, Country Manager of Google Cloud, Thailand
Thinking small can be restricting; don't put unnecessary constraints around you.
Thinking small is the nemesis to success puts April Srivikorn, the country manager of Google Cloud. April pledges to contribute back in her line of work to help Thai businesses, big and small, move into digitisation. Visualisation of the goal, for her, is the secret to freeing up one's creativity.
2/9 Ausana Mahagitsiri, COO of PM Group Company Limited
Flexibility and readiness for change are the two keywords in living and also in business.
Despite having large shoes to fill, Ausana Mahagitsiri excels in her position as chief operating officer in her family-owned PM Group. The heiress believes 'flexibility and readiness for change' are the two keywords in living and also in business. She takes every step with confidence but also believes that one can never be too cautious.
3/9 Harisadhi Leelayuwapan, Founder of PHTAA
I have to cater to the customer while maintaining my own distinct style.
As an interior designer, Harisadhi Leelayuwapan has to cater to her customer while maintaining her own distinct style. The founder of PHTAA Living Design is fueled by all the things around her and believes that compromise is the key to success. Since it is impossible to work alone, she compares teamwork to 'a game of ping-pong with ideas being shaped to compromise between me, my staff and, of course, the clients.'
4/9 Naruechon Dhumrongpiyawut, Assistant Managing Director at Gunkul Engineering
Seeing people grow together with the company gives me the drive to do what I do.
'I’ve always felt that the team in my company is like a family,' says Naruechon Dhumrongpiyawut, assistant managing director of Gunkul Engineering. Success for her is not about how high she can fly but whether her wings are wide enough to care for everyone under her. Stepping into her father's company, for Naruechon, leadership is not about being the best but being able to utilise those with greater skills and to convince them to listen.

6/9 Sajika Thongsuk, Founder of BFF BKK & Penthouse
Adaptability is the key. It is important to think and act fast in the environment where changes are swifter than ever.
The founder of BFF BKK and Penthouse takes from Charles Darwin in her philosophy to success. Sajika Thongsuk values adaptability in both her personal and professional life.
