Sri Soekarmoen McCarthy, a member of our global public relations team, recently spent some time with our friends at Amway Thailand. This week she shares her stories with us at The Amway Insider
On November 10, I attended a gala dinner as formal as the Oscars!
Men in suits and women adorned with formal evening dresses filled a large room in one of Bangkok’s largest convention centers. More than 1,500 people attended the event organized by the Thai Direct Selling Association to honor top distributors from 30 local and foreign direct selling companies in the country, including Avon, Giffarine and Amway.
Amway Business Owners Pongsak and Porntip Ajjimarangsee, Sumram Ounyaung and Niramon Warodganakum, and Worraphop and Titiporn Thawong were among those who received recognition.
Amway selected the winners based on more than just the bottom line. They were also selected based on their compliance to the Rules and Code of Ethics set but the company and the World Federation of Direct Selling Associations.
Kittawat Ritteerawee, general manager of Amway Thailand and president of the TDSA, presented the awards along with other executives from each direct selling company. Government officials from the agency that oversees the direct selling industry and members of the media were also invited.
I was privileged to sit at the same table with the Amway Business Owners who won the award. Prior to joining Amway they were educators, engineers or health care professionals.
Worraphop grew up with parents who were Amway Business Owners, while his wife, Thawong, worked as medical doctor in a clinic. The Ajjimarangsees both have doctorate degrees from prestigious universities. And Ounyaung was on the staff at a local health clinic while his wife, Warodganakum, was a nurse before they joined Amway.
Regardless of their background, they all found success with Amway. Congratulations to our ABOs!
