Noppadon Tungwatcharin says many people set their own conditions such as fears and beliefs that prevent them from realising their dreams.

Noppadon Tungwatcharin says many people set their own conditions such as fears and beliefs that prevent them from realising their dreams.

People's appetite for success is seemingly undeterred by the raging violence on Bangkok streets.

Noppadon Tungwatcharin, executive coach and trainer, said yesterday that so far there had been no cancellations for his first public show tomorrow, "Driving to Success: Unlock Your Life and Conquer Your Dream".

"We've received no cancellations from our customers, who comprise three groups - corporate customers who send their staff to attend, individuals, and volunteers who receive our complementary tickets," he said.

"One reason may be that our venue, Bitec Bang Na, is far from the protest zones."

Noppadon, an electrical engineer by training who spent most of his career with financial institutions including ABN Amro and HSBC, expects nearly 500 people to attend his full-day event.

"I have been a trainer and coach for executives and individuals. I would like to disseminate these 'life skills' that I have taught to executives and individuals to more Thais so that they become happier and successful," he said.

Many people set their own conditions such as fears and beliefs that prevent them from reaching their dream. This seminar will help them learn how to "unlock their brakes", gain confidence to set their goal, find "new lenses" to look at the world and reach what they may want to achieve in work and life.

"For instance, some people want to succeed in their work, but believe that you can never succeed in Thailand if you don't have a special connection. And then you don't put enough effort [into working]. This is [like] a brake that if unlocked, will let your car run fast," he said.

Noppadon currently works for his firm Max Potentials.
