Jakarta Attacks

I was in a waiting room of an immigration office at Kemayoran yesterday when I received a whatsapp message from one of my whatsapp groups at 11.39 AM informing the terror attack.. Then I spread the info to my family and my other whatsapp groups. Meanwhile in a few minutes people in the room also knew the terror news via their gadgets too.  Someone then changed the television program in the waiting room to a tv station reporting the attack. Many of them condemned the terror. Of course, me too.

Our hearts and prayers to the victims of the terror. May Jakarta would be safer and stronger. We have seen since yesterday more and more people say “We are not afraid” and use some hastags on twitter, like: #KamiTidakTakut, #BraveJakarta, #JakartaKuat, #PrayforJakarta, etc. More and more solidarity statements appear publicly.

Jakarta attack photos and the map.

I just recalled my memory on Sales-MarketingGroup member gathering at MU Cafe in 2011 which was located at Sarinah building very closed to the attack points. Some of you might recall it too. Thank you Pak Prasen Adya from India for joining the 2011 gathering...

See you all in 2016 member gathering (I will announce soon)…

Jakarta River Cruise...

Hi Pak Selamat, Pak Fajar and Others...

Good morning!

I am here invited by one of my principals to support their program during the exhibition. VIV Asia is an international exhibition for animal health business. This is my last day of my three-day visit to Bangkko.

I had a wonderful dinner in a boat on Chao Phraya river yesterday. From the boat we could see several interesting buildings on the river side such as the well-known Wat Arun (Temple of Dawn). The food for the dinner was great. The tom yam soup was awesome...

I am imagining when Jakarta will have such tour on the river.... Some big cities already have, like the ones I have experience with: Singapore River Cruise and Seine River Cruise in Paris to enjoy the city and the Eiffel...

Happy New Year 2015...

Dear ALL,

Happy New Year 2015... Wishing you a better year both for your personal as well as your professional life.

The year 2014 for me is so bad that I hardly posted as many sharing as I have done in the previous years. I'd like to share my interesting professional experience during the last two years (especially the year 2014) to you when we have time... could be in our next member gathering, which would be probably on March 21, 2015. My story must be very interesting for those interested in management and leadership. A company could be in a dangerous situation when leaders play office politics unwisely.

Please wait for the gathering final announcement.

I do hope you had a wonderful year in 2014 and wish you all the best for 2015...

Congrats to the New Indonesian President and Vice President: Jokowi Widodo and Jusuf Kalla

I am so sure we are now - in Indonesia - feel better after the General Elections Commission (KPU) announced the official final vote tally and named Joko "Jokowi" Widodo president-elect with a total vote of 70,997,833, or 53.15 percent, on Tuesday evening (22/7/2014).

Congrats to our new President Joko Widodo and the new Vice President Jusuf Kalla!

Many things we could learn from the presidential election process in Indonesia this year. For the first time ever, we had two candidates in the face-to-face racing for the leader of the country position. Interesting to know how their national team campaigns tried to create the brand positioning with their unique selling propositions for both candidates. Also their marketing efforts…. I really want talk about it more but maybe later ya when I have more appropriate time to share…
