An investors's request

Look at these simple facts: 99 per cent of its employees are female; many of them are the "Gen-Yers", and in their 20s. And every Friday, they are allowed to make their own fashion choices such as wearing leather dresses, or, if they choose to, even wear shorts.

Not surprisingly, no participant attended the Market for Alternative Investment's Opportunity Day session last week to question Sukanya Vanichjakvong, the managing director of One to One Contacts, when she said her contact centre firm has frequent visitors.

At the end of the presentation, one male investor came up to Sukanya and asked if she would allow investors to visit her company. "But it should be on a Friday," he said, laughing.

HOME-MADE DEMOCRACY

At the wedding of his daughter Rudklao Suwankiri (Naenae) on June 22, former deputy prime minister Dr Trairong Suwankiri told the guests that he had invited people from all political camps to join in the ceremony as he would like every Thai, regardless of his or her "colour", to be reconciled and respect difference opinions, an external relations executive at PTT Exploration and Production revealed.

Confirming that her father did indeed "walk the talk", Naenae told Bizbuzz that when Trairong watched the World Cup matches with his wife, he would usually pick the team not cheered by his wife, because he wanted to create an environment of democratic debate between two differing parties, especially at a time when there is no parliament.
