Ever wonder how a marketing, sales and advertising guy can end up leading a telecommunications company as chief executive officer (CEO)?
As the saying goes, nothing is impossible if you are willing to take on a challenge, put every skill you have into good use and learn every part of the business as much as possible.
Digi CEO Albern Murty has an amazing background in various industries throughout his career before he ‘stumbled upon’ the telecommunications industry.
Some key takeaways from Albern:
- Take opportunities to network with people. You’ll never know how they may help propel your career in the near future.
- Think ahead of time. Pioneer and innovate business ideas before everyone does.
- Always be on your toes for market trends. Don’t grow too complacent and let creativity slip away.
- Never say die. Keep fighting, evolving and reinventing. Always be willing to change.
