My recent accomplishment of completing my first 21 kms in the ‘VPBank VnExpress Marathon 2024’ signifies more than physical endurance; it reflects my unwavering dedication. I aim to inspire my team and brand partners with a never-give-up attitude.

Much like the marathon’s challenges, the business world presents hurdles. Market volatility demands swift adaptation, resource constraints require optimization, and competition fosters growth.

Throughout my career, my success mantra has been encapsulated in the phrase ‘leading is serving’. Embracing the philosophy of servant leadership, I firmly believe that a leader’s primary role is to serve their team. This guiding principle permeates every responsibility I undertake, emphasizing a spirit of service. Whether catering to the needs of customers, employees, or stakeholders, I prioritize service as the foundation of my approach. This philosophy has been a guiding light for my decisions and actions, proving instrumental in building robust relationships and attaining business success.

Practically, this involves fostering the development of the team, empowering them to take ownership of their work, and cultivating a culture of collaboration and open communication. Such an approach has played a pivotal role in creating a positive work environment and driving a culture of continuous improvement within the organizations I have led.

I anticipate the ongoing growth of women’s representation in Vietnam’s business landscape, signaling a shift from its traditionally male-dominated nature. Women, with their inherent nurturing qualities and heightened emotional intelligence, contribute significantly to leadership and problem-solving. To strengthen their representation further, breaking down barriers is imperative.
