Yesterday morning, I attended a breakfast session with the bank’s Chief Risk Officer for Asia Pacific—-who happens to be a lady. I was actually having second thoughts attending the session, but it was a good thing I decided to still go because there’s nothing like a successful, smart, empathic and strong woman to inspire me.
She talked about her career and gave us six tips for success—-all of which I really think will be useful. One of the tips she gave was to spend these “junior years” at the firm developing self-awareness, so that you know what you’re good at and what you need to improve. She also adviced that we keep a journal to document the day to day feelinga and emotions that run through you to get a better idea of what you really want to do..
