I'm Sorry...

I’m sorry but I just can’t help it. I'm just good at what I do! LOL

Another event, another success. And this means the haters will hate more.

I just got back from Saigon where I directed another successful launch, this time around; the event was to unveil our latest product offerings – the Studio 15 and Inspiron Mini, a 9 inch beauty.

And yet again, like I always do, like all the launches I have done in the last 9 months since I joined Dell and like all the launches I have conceptualized and directed all through my working life, this was another successful event!

And for every successful launch I oversee, the greener ‘Dumb and Dumber’ becomes. I know they have tried their best to promote themselves in the eyes of the upper echelon of Dell management and even with the minutest success they have, they publicize it so hard just so as to remain visible.

I’m not the type, however. I derive my satisfaction from knowing that I have contributed to the success of the activities in questioned. I ain’t the chest-thumping type; I prefer to let people acknowledge my contribution.

However, it is unfortunate that the corporate world has moved to a place where self-praise is the only way to get noticed. I still believe that the works will speak for themselves but because of the level of bureaucracy that is prevalent nowadays, sometimes, the need to gently remind what you have done is crucial.

This brings me to the question of what I should or need to do. With the success of the latest event, do I then need to remind people my contribution? Or should I just leave it be and expect and/or hope that my contributions are acknowledged?

Honestly, right now, I am more inclined to do the latter. If the powers that be can’t see what I have done, then it’s sad that they’re blind. I know Dumb and Dumber will try their best to put this under the radar but it’s really hard to do as such when all you hear are praises of how the event was so successful.

I am gonna stick to my principle and not do anything out there to get noticed. As I’ve said, if they can’t see my contributions, then their blindness is not my fucking problem anymore.

Anyways, here are a few pictures I took during the event…

Next Stop: the KL Launch :)
