“Be a better version of yourself”, says Heroleads first member
If anyone challenges you with an impossible mission… a mission you could never even imagine. Will you accept it and prove you can be ‘better than today’?
For Khun Nat-Nathapong Supakiay, Enterprise Performance Lead & Heroleads first member, the answer was ‘yes’ and now he is the pride of the company.
“I never imagined myself as a consultant, someone sitting beside clients, because I am a grumpy and arrogant person. However, when I accepted the challenge to be a consultant, I found that I have the ability to tone down my ego, be more assertive and chat with any stranger who is our client. Heroleads has made me realise my true power and bring the maximum potential out of me.”
From “Zero” to “Hero”
The first day I joined Heroleads as an intern, I had zero knowledge about sales and marketing, but later I improved myself and climbed the ladder to become a digital marketing consultant and Enterprise Performance Lead, respectively. For clients I’m a professional consultant, but for my juniors I’m both a life and work consultant who helps them tackle various difficulties in their lives.
It’s not only my diligence and hard work that got me through the hardship, the trust of my management team and advice from colleagues provided significant support for me.
“At that time, teaching about online marketing did not exist. As Heroleads first member, I had to learn by joining our executive’s presentations and, luckily, I have mostly worked with well-organised companies; every task that’s assigned is followed up and valuable feedback is given. This way I have been able to improve myself directly. My colleagues also share valuable insights with me”
Journey as Heroleads first member
Nat is a first-jobber and one of the first employees at Heroleads, so he had the opportunity to witness the fast growth of the company, firsthand.
“Initially, we had only 4 colleagues who were 2 Germans, Nat and another colleague working side by side in a one-room home office. Firstly, we focused on the dental clinic market since another branch in Dubai was doing so, but after working for a period of time we found the Thai market to be different, so we shifted to cosmetics, e-Commerce, financial and real estate businesses instead. As for the office, we have moved from the home office to one downtown.”
“Heroleads is a fast growing company because we offer innovative technology that no one else can offer and a well-organised service. Talent is another factor that helps us to grow fast, we never lack the cream of the crop.”
Friends = the positive energy that makes my day.
The world of digital marketing is fast-paced and overwhelmed with challenges every day. I have to confess that sometimes I feel seriously stressed with it all, but my ‘colleagues’ help me pass through it.
“As Heroleads first memeber, I can say that not every workplace lets you work with true friends everyday. I can discuss with my colleagues both work and life, we work in a friendly and open atmosphere.”
“On the day I feel ‘What the heck!? I’m fu_king tired!’. I turn to my trusted colleagues with whom I can talk and discuss. I feel satisfaction living in this happy little hut is better than a gloomy castle.”
Never be the ‘best’, be ‘better’
Nat said that even today, he can’t believe that he has been working here for 3 years! Time flies like a bird and he’s found every minute here helps him develop himself, both professionally and mentally. Transforming the work he hated to work he loves and performs with passion.
“Technology is changing so we need to learn everyday. Even today, I can learn various things everyday.”
“In the near future, I plan to move into the Business Development sector, so I can challenge myself with planning sales strategy, reorganising company structure and working more closely with the marketing team. I have discussed this passion with the management team and they agree to give me this great opportunity… To prepare myself, I think I should study more about digital technology relevant to this position.”
At Heroleads, “opportunity” awaits everyone.
As the most senior & Heroleads first member, Nat said that it is time for a change, but our organisation culture still remains: equality. From executive to intern, everyone has the right to argue, agree or disagree with anything raised in minutes.
“Everybody here is a half-empty glass. The young generation are quick learners, they can possibly climb to a management position within a few years.”
“I like to inform everyone that everything has it own time. First-jobbers should focus your time on developing yourself. Even for experienced staff, joining here means you have to learn more about online marketing and spend your time getting to know new colleagues. Everything needs time and an open attitude.”
“I learned these 3 philosophies as Heroleads first memeber: diligence, tolerance and goodness. These are the eternal flames always igniting one’s heart. Thus, hold these 3 philosophies firmly and wait for your day.”
