I’ve been in the Future Leaders programme for two years and covered three different assignments over the course; starting in Sales and then moving to Marketing and finally to Commercial Excellence as a Sales Trainer.

I am both proud and happy to be part of the programme. I have gained some fantastic experiences working with various people and learnt a lot from them. Whilst there were challenges encountered in each assignments, the experiences has opened my mind and increased my understanding of the business and the healthcare industry. There’s no doubt that my learning journey has enhanced my confidence, pushed me forward and motivated me to achieve more.

I have graduated from the programme and with a new role as a Sales Excellence Expert in the Commercial Excellence Department of the Pharmaceutical business. In this role, I am involved in the management of Indonesia’s strong sales force of 900 people. People here are inspiring. They’re teachers, mentors and friends at the same time. Each day in my job is so exhilarating!  

GSK is a great place to build my career, especially to learn and grow. I have the opportunity to contribute, be empowered to lead projects and garner experiences across boundaries and businesses. The Future Leaders programme is certainly the springboard to all that I have experienced and accomplished thus far. And I’m looking forward for more to come.

For me it’s about thinking positive and I’m confident anyone can go further.
