To celebrate Women's Month, we caught with Janthana Kaenprakhamroy, CEO of Tapoly. We spoke about her career journey, biggest accomplishments, and advice she would impart to her younger self.
What got you into financial services?
I studied business at Middlesex University, as I was interested in business-related subjects. I was lucky to get a job in finance after graduating since I didn't have any specific plans at that stage, other than to gain experience in the business world.
What have been your biggest career and personal achievements?
My biggest achievement career-wise is starting and then running my own company, it is a specialist insurance business, which due to all the regulation and fierce competition is not the easiest business to get into.
What advice would you give to your younger self?
My advice to my younger self would be to enjoy life more and allow myself to make more mistakes - it's a part of the learning process and is necessary to grow as a person.
We'd like to thank Janthana for taking the time to speak with us. We can all choose to challenge and call out gender bias and inequality. We can all choose to seek out and celebrate women's achievements. Collectively, we can all help create an inclusive world.
