Do you have any tips about PR you want to share to others, students or people who are currently working in this field? As you are such a successful person in this particular field and of course, you are an idol to many people including us, Siam Scope Magazine team.

Tips about PR I want to share is that I want you to look at the bigger picture, deeply understand your products and brand as well as understand target market group. If you don’t look at the bigger picture, you cannot create any content that is interesting or profound enough to the consumers. Nowadays, the consumers don’t need that much information as it is easy for them to find out from their smart phones in just a few minutes. Therefore, the content or the story must be interesting and create some values for the customers.

As for the starter in this field, I suggest you to create your own branding. It is like your personal brand. Moreover, connection both offline and online are important. Knowing a lot of people is the good thing for people working in this field. You must be yourself; not trying to pretend to be what you are not, creating reliability in yourself and keeping your own words or having integrity in your work.

Many people who are not involved in this job may look at it as a pretty job; just talking and chatting. However, the preparation of work, the strategies before work execution, making a contact, writing a news, rewriting a news or concluding final projects such as press-conference, event or press release are all hard works. People who don’t understand will not see how much work we need to prepare. Therefore, we need to keep ourselves updated with fresh news and technology, not just star gossips. We need to do research, read a lot of news about what is going on in our world now in all aspects including politics and technology. Last but not least, we need to give ourselves, others and our works a respect.

Do you have any Idol?

My idol id my mother as she is a very willful and disciplinary person. She is always quick and serious about what she does. She is also a giver; she always thinks of others before herself.

Finally, if you are talking about this round world, what will you be thinking about?

If we are talking about our world now, I will think of the fast changing world which has been changed by new technology, changing people or consumers’ behaviors. The important thing is we need to find our certain standpoints or point that can make differences. It doesn’t matter how small or big as long as it doesn’t affect our environment. Besides, we need to stay optimistic to keep our minds clam and distressful.
