Being born in Vietnam and having the opportunity to grow up in Switzerland was definitely a privilege for Son. First of all, learning two completely different languages helped him to understand both Vietnamese and Swiss cultures equally. Thanks to this advantage, he quickly learned to adapt to the environment and developed a very open mindset towards cultural diversity. His way of thinking and broad interests have made him a very versatile person. Son has spent his professional career in various roles in banking, finance and investment, while running his own business and currently he is in the process of starting a new one. Therefore, Son would describe himself as a financial allrounder with an entrepreneurial spirit. He also follows developments in technology and digitalization with great interest, as he is constantly on the lookout for ideas that will enable him to create solutions that improve people’s welfare.
What you should pass on to your children
Without revealing too much, Son resumes: “With my talk I will share with you a personal story about my family, the Vietnam war, immigration to another country, overcoming cultural barriers and the pursuit of a better life. Ultimately, this story of mine will give you an idea worth spreading: my conviction on what should be passed on to our children.”
