Question to “Ask Roshan”

What are some of the lessons you learnt from your first boss?

Excerpt from Roshan’s answer

Always take on the hardest job. Learn to get rid of your job the soonest possible so you can move on to take on other jobs. Also, consider the Matthew effect: continuously use your talent and grow it. Else, even those that were given to you will be taken away.

How this show came about?
This TV segment called “Ask Roshan” came about when Matt Naylor, Hafiz Hori & Roshan Thiran were travelling to Johor for a gig with Citibank. During the drive over, Matt set up Facebook Live and took questions from everyone via Facebook to Roshan who spontaneously answered them. This resulted in hundreds of questions popping up and getting live answers from Roshan and even some of the Citibank leaders, including their CEO, Lee Lung Nien.
