2014 - 2015 thouse courses was offer as an earlier stage with really low fees model, and those are amazing investment for me, to decided and being super agreesive to learn and grow.
For me, it was simple. I wanted to go top of the organization, and I knew that one of the way for achieving that is the constantly learning, and more I learn, faster I can grow myself.
For ROI, ya, ROI? I am the youngest CIO of the Vietnam. Working for the coporation who is almost half a billion USD investment, 5000+, employees.
The amazing benefit what I got about this which I am going to share you now. Beside my coporate life I wanted to do things for community. Among those programs one of the program was at Stanford on entrepreneurship.
That program also significantly helped to develop my mindset, skill set to build something from the scratches. On 2017 when I was transformation my 4 years research to an NPO organization named VSHR. That program's knowledge was so great and helped me. Now the NPO has 300 members, 19 national initiatives and supported 250,000 Vietnamese people.
