What an enlightening experience it was to be part of Igniter Conference SEA 2019 which is part of the Corporate Innovation Summit, held here in Bangkok this past weekend!
I met such incredible people from Silicon Valley (VCs, Investors and Stanford Professors) and also here in Thailand, so full of wonderful ideas and eagerness to help shape this world into a better place for all! Truly inspiring pitches, talks, and people!
I was honored to be one of the panelists to talk about what does it take to build a Silicon Valley mindset – hint: think “winning” mindset that I talk about in my book “I Am Winning”. And I gifted my books to the winners of the pitch competitions, who all did a fantastic job presenting their ideas!
It was a great surprise to know that Igniter Con – #1 International tech startup conference from Silicon Valley was coming to my town – Bangkok! The theme of this year’s conference was Silicone Valley Mindset and upon learning that, I was very excited to share my insights into what does it take to have it, since I’ve written a whole book about having a winner’s mindset. I was honored to be part of the panel talk alongside industry experts Henry Wong and Ravi Belani, moderated by Roy Terry.
The qualities required to have a winner’s mindset directly translate to having a Silicone Valley mindset, as we have discussed during the panel. The most important quality being resilience in the face of obstacles and failure. You can read about all 7 of the qualities of winners I talk about in my book I Am Winning, available worldwide on Amazon.
The pitch competition was exciting, entertaining and thought-provoking, with participants presenting world-class ideas. Being a judge for Track 2 competition was not an easy feat, as everyone had fantastic presentations. Individual track winners received an IgniterSV VIP membership and a copy of my book – I Am Winning.
Thank you to the team of Igniter Con for having me be part of your fantastic event here in Bangkok, and I very much look forward to being a keynote speaker at IgniterCon 2019 in October this year in Silicone Valley!
