Topp Jirayut Srupsrisopa is an ambitious person. He has dreams and is motivated to make a big impact. He wants to create something new for Thailand and, to do that, he intends to make the impossible possible.
In The Future of Money, Topp Jirayut Srupsrisopa shares lessons he has learned over the last 8 years and provides you with 5 important skills that you will need in the future workplace to achieve your goals and climb the ladder to success.
Founder and Group CEO of Bitkub, Topp is the entrepreneur behind Thailand’s latest and arguably most dramatic FinTech unicorn which surpassed a valuation of US$1 billion in 2001, just four years after he launched the company in Bangkok and at the tender age of 31.
Four years before that he had launched a bitcoin wallet company called Coins Thailand which was investigated by both the Bank of Thailand and the Anti-Money Laundering Office (AMLO). His father had pleaded with him to shut the company and move well away from anything related to cryptocurrency, bitcoin and blockchain.
In his video talk, Topp shares several business management strategies that have helped to drive success in the two companies he has founded to-date; his policy on recruiting, hiring and firing and leadership in context. Passionate about football, Topp uses a professional sports team as an analogy to help explain “leadership in context” and its relationship with organizational design both in peacetime and in war.
The crypto tycoon also shares 5 essential skills that will be necessary for the new generation to excel and achieve success in the future workplace, where the rate of change will be fast and frequent:
- Be Quick to Adapt
- Be Patient & Persevere
- Be Committed & Passionate About What You Do
- Embrace Lifelong Learning
- Don't Fear Failure
In Topp’s words, we are born with just one life and each of us has a duty to make the most of our time on this planet. Have your own goals, take action every single day and never give up because ultimately a single, ordinary person really does have the power to change the world.
Topp Jirayut Srupsrisopa has achieved extraordinary success in a comparatively short space of time and against all odds. As stories of successful people go, his story has barely begun.
