Shiseido Hong Kong
First Job? My first job was at a computer company doing marketing and then I changed to working in a bank. After this, I worked with the advertisement agency McCann Erickson.
What made you want to work for Shiseido? I was interested in one brand management rather than looking after lots of brands. The opportunities I was offered then led me to work for Shiseido where I worked for the professional hair care department. I also had the opportunity to become marketing manager and now I am the general manager.
What are the perks of your job? I get to learn new things as well as getting the opportunity to touch on new technology. I also get to try products that have not been launched yet, products from other brands and products that are not available in Hong Kong.
What is the most challenging part of your job? There are a lot of challenges which I face every day. The customer, world and market demands change every day (it’s never ending) so the challenge is coming up with solutions that keep up with this dynamic business world.
What is the best career advice you have been given? Keeping a positive mentality is very important in the business world. Sometimes you can be physically tired which in turn brings your mood down but it is key to keep an open mind and maintain a positive attitude.
