Making the Cut - Min-Liang Tan, CEO and creative director, Razer

By: Eve Goh

 

Not many people can claim to love what they do. Or for that matter, create a passionate following amongst gamers. Razer's CEO and creative director Min-Liang Tan managed to check all those boxes, creating amazing products for gamers. At the very heart of it, he manages the business like a game, strategising and overcoming challenges with a gamer's mind and heart.

 

Min-Liang Tan

 

I don't think I really have a favorite game at any point of time, well, I have a favorite game at any point of time, right? Like all the gamers out there, well, you know today it could be Mass Effect or tomorrow it could be, you know, Dragon Age or it could be Ultima or something like that, right? So that's something I love about gaming right, there's always something cool around the corner.

 

Back then in 2005, gamers weren't necessarily the, umm, considered huge industry. On top of that, depending on where you are you've got societal pressure for example, right, game is not good for you, parents, teachers, what have you. But, but, attitudes are changing.

 

I would actually dare say that there are huge amount of opportunities and a huge amount of areas of expansion for eSports right now. Xian, for example, part of Team Razer, you know, he's been one of the eSports athlete we’ve been supporting all the way through and he's been delivering some phenomenal global kind of achievements and we're really really proud of him.

 

We're just really focused on one person and that's the gamer. I like to chat directly with our users, our fans and it's a great conduit for me to always be listening, like, whether it's positive feedback or “I love your product” and things like that and, even negative criticism which we think is really constructive where we are able to say, “Oh is there something we can improve on our product?”, “Is there something that we can push the limits in terms of engineering?”

 

Fundamentally, because I look at it as a gamer, there are all like challenges. You just try to get through a jumping challenge. You can't get through a jumping challenge, you'll find all different ways and means to do it you search on the internet for a walk-through and you know the list could go on there are many huge challenges out there. We don't look at it as a setback, we don't look at it as a negative thing. We look at all of this as challenges and because we were, we are, passionate gamers ourselves, what we wanted to do was to design great product - whether it's hardware or weather software for gamers - and what we've done is today we are world leaders in the gaming peripheral space. We didn't just invent the first gaming mouse we invented an entire new category, a whole industry.

 

Technically it's designing for myself. It’s, umm, it’s more like good fun.

Making the Cut - Paul Michael Scanlan, Huawei CTO

By: Gwyn Lau

 

Paul Michael Scanlan has the bearing of what one thinks a chief technology officer should be, decked out in a suit and looking all serious. Now imagine Huawei's CTO on stage, jamming it up in a session with his band. Yes, he is one of the cool kids on the block.

 

Paul Michael Scanlan

 

People think, you know, CTO is Chief Technical Officer, yes? That is sort of what the title is called. But, very specifically, my job is providing advice to companies to transform them.

 

I love music and I love performing. I love playing music, singing, all these sort of things. The musical side has helped me significantly in the way I do other things, like public speaking and interviews. It’s made me more relaxed significantly. To stand up on stage in front of 3000 people, that’s quite umm, quite a challenge. That’s not easy to do. The fear factor is terrible but it helps you a lot when you stand up on a stage here in front of a few thousand people, as well.

 

What I’ve learnt over all the years I’ve been playing, if you play music by yourself it’s very different to playing with others. When you play with others - I can play, you can play, he can sing, she can sing - whatever, but can we all do it together? If you have the right team, it fosters creativity, musically or in business. The right team, that means the right components. You need the right ingredients to be able to create.

 

From the management perspective, I am very transparent, very open. I always have a policy - my door is always open. I like a team structure as opposed to a very bureaucratic style, I don’t like that. I like to be a little bit more hands-on, I like to understand the problems so that when other people explain it to me we can challenge each other. I like other people to challenge me, I’m not always right, perhaps never. So it’d be good if people can challenge me and then we can collaborate. I believe that collaboration becomes stronger if you have this style.

 

So if you want to grow a business, if you want to develop and take advantages of the changes that the whole behaviour of the planet, you need to be connected. The content is changing so it’s no longer just appropriate to have simple messaging or voice communications.

 

People now want to see video and video is becoming more pervasive in the industry. So therefore, when we know 40-60% of all data is video so, now you see telecom operators themselves, I say probably over the last past 5 years, they’ve taken a specific direction towards this thing called ‘transformation’. Some are heading and moving towards become more video or media oriented operators but generally, they all understand the need that they must change.

Making the Cut - Arthur Chapin, Expedia

By: Lawrence Ng, Eve Goh

 

From his humble beginning as an intern to his current day job as the Senior Vice President of global product & design at Expedia, Arthur Chapin is consistent with one thing - he's a traveler and cook at heart.

 

Arthur Chapin

 

I am absolutely blessed to be able to travel a fair amount both professionally as well as personally. The first time that I got to take my son to the beach- so I’ve a 3½ year old, a kid from Seattle. There is no swimming in the water in Seattle, it’s a little cold. So just to see him sort of explore the beach and especially see the sea turtles which were his favourite, those were memories that which will last for the rest of my life.

 

I also really enjoy the quick, sort of, stopovers or the things you can do when you’re on long business trips. One of my favourite memories was actually going to Koh Samui, offering the owner of the restaurant a little bit of money to teach me how to cook Thai food and the next morning he took me to the market and taught me how to make those dishes. The banana blossom was the best and I flew back that night. So, that’s the type of experiences that will last me forever.

 

Cooking is one of my favourite hobbies. I am constantly experimenting so there’s no one dish - that’s one thing about me whether it’s at work or at home. I started at Expedia, I think I was employee number 262 in our development lab, actually helping us move out of Microsoft. It was kind of cool to see this company grow from a small startup into a large, sort of, international travel player.

 

The scale of Expedia now is absolutely amazing, what hasn’t changed is the people. The same reason that I wanted to join as an intern still exists today. We have a culture of learning, so we will sometimes run tests that challenge assumptions we had - things that had to be true or there’s no way that this feature, you know, could be tested off. Often what we find is that the assumption we had was a wrong assumption.

 

There were co-workers that could feel run over or could feel like I would do anything to, sort of, get the result and would leave dead bodies, if you will. I put more of my effort now into ‘how’, and how the teams interact than the specific ‘what’ we are accomplishing because the ‘what’ takes care of itself. If people are passionate, they know what they are trying to do, and how they are doing it, is by working together.

 

I think it’s only through great mentorship with many of the leaders of Expedia, but also time that I came to value and understand that how you accomplish something is as important as what you accomplish because the ‘how’ is what inspires and trains future people.

Making the Cut - Serguei Beloussov, Acronis CEO

Acronis' CEO Serguei Beloussov prefers to do first and think later. The go-getter attitude and his philosophy to look forward with no regrets is the driving force and management style that has brought success to the data backup company.

 

Serguei Beloussov

 

I’m just a curious person, I want to understand the nature of things and physics is a significant part of it. Quantum physics, in the past 10 years, experienced huge change. There’s lots of books right now which are very easy to read. Historically, quantum physics was a little bit snobbish. We have professors and famous scientists who would come up and say “Wow! It’s very complicated!” but, there is this whole universe and there is understanding of the universe. In fact, you can meet the whole universe or you can meet one person, and that one person is potentially more interesting because his brain is very complex and potentially, can explain the universe.

 

It’s nice to meet great people. One of the key parts of my career was that I met Bill Gates -for a very short time- I was able to meet Mr Lee Kuan Yew, David Gross - he’s a Nobel Prize winner in Physics. You can talk to people like this and they really have deep knowledge. There are some people who first think and then they do, I first do and then I think.

 

Quite often, I share information which I would have better not share. What is information? Information about you is information about your behaviour. It might be very important in the near future. If you have your information, you can be a much better subject for medical care or for employment. In the world, there is physical objects which you preserve and there are physical objects about famous people. Do you have any objects in your home which are from your grand-grand-grandparents? So there’s nothing, right? But you see, that’s a change in the modern world that you can actually preserve digital information for a variable time.

 

I was running a company which was doing engineering for other companies. In a series of steps, we found out that there is a cool part of IT. We split Acronis into a separate company, and at that time, the company focused on just backup. There is different management philosophy for different stage of the company. It is important to be alert, responsive, attentive to detail, to make decisions and to never give up.

 

Sometimes, you talk about hard-working. I have some situations which I wouldn’t want to repeat. I spend a lot of time trying to understand how time is organised. This whole concept of regret is strange because it’s in the past, and so what can you do about it? It’s happened, it’s just there. And the question is again, what can you change in the future because the future is still open, you can do something to it.

Making the Cut - Charlene Koh, co-founder, Paktor

Paktor is serious business. The matchmaking app, having received a recent US$10 million funding, is now in seven countries including Japan and South Korea. But even as the business grows and recently acquired another dating app, Down, Paktor's co-founder Charlene Koh only has one goal - to make a difference in somebody's life.

 

Charlene Koh

 

Hi, I’m Charlene. I co-founded Paktor, one of the mobile dating apps in Singapore. So, Paktor is in about 7 other countries, mainly Taiwan, Vietnam, Malaysia, as well, Bangkok. We are expanding into Japan and Korea this year, so then you’ll be able to actually look for people overseas.

 

For Paktor itself, I meet a lot of different people. There isn’t a day that is the same day, always new things that pop up, you know, new things that I learn. So the ‘Paktor Queen’ doesn’t mean I paktor a lot, it’s the term that they coined for me because I created Paktor and I wanted this platform that actually connects people together. Well, I’ll definitely use my own name when I test the app. A lot of them who actually swipe right on me or talk to me, initially don’t know who I am until they ask me questions like, “Oh, what do you work as?” and I’m like “Oh, I actually co-founded Paktor”, and they are like “No way!”. Or he’s like, “Oh, you’re joking.” and I’m like “No, no, no, no, no, no”.

 

Gaigai runs very differently from Paktor, Paktor is all online but Gaigai is offline. Umm, the reason why we wanted to have Gaigai was because we felt that being an offline service, you have more criterias, you are a bit more sophisticated. The interview with each of our clients for Gaigai lasts about an hour. There’s a long list of questions that we go through because we actually protect our clients’ interests here as well.

 

Looking good is making a good impression. I go to the gym quite often, I listen to a lot of house, a lot of trance, a lot of EDM tunes as well. It gets the beat going, gets you sweating and gets me motivated to actually work out harder. Being in a first date as well, you need to also watch your dating etiquette - the way that you speak, the way that you actually present yourself.

 

So, Fleek image was born in about October last year. It is our image consulting arm that actually help singles, you know, to look better and to feel good about themselves too. I wear a lot of tones, my colour is actually warm autumn colours. I do not wear things like green, it makes you look a bit sullen, you know, it makes you look unhealthy. You actually help people, I actually feel more fulfilled and contented at the end of the day and you know, when you go back home, I’m happy because I have tried to make a difference in somebody’s life and I look forward to working the next day.

Making the Cut - Richard Quest, CNN International anchor

Never underestimate the importance of cyber security, says CNN International anchor Richard Quest. The veteran journalist made a very convincing point for cyber security with one question - did the Clinton email leaks cost her dearly and led to a Trump victory in the United States presidential election?

 

Richard Quest

 

Sometimes, I shudder at how far behind I'm getting, at how I don't understand Instagram and I can't put a filter on a picture on Twitter. But I think what happens is you have to sift the technology that is interesting and the technology that is essential. If I sit down to write something or do something on the computer, I sit down and I do just that. I recognise I have to stay up with technology but I don't have to stay up with all technology

 

What is much more threatening to global economic growth, global health is computer data security A chief executive that doesn't realise his or her company is at risk is an idiot. Yahoo lost 500 million (user data) and their deal with Verizon may be in trouble Ashley Madison lost highly personal data and there was a suicide as a result. We can even question, did any of the leaks we can even question, did any of the leaks and the hacks concerning Hillary Clinton's emails have any effect on Donald Trump winning the US presidency. The United States elected Donald Trump and the rest of the world can cry and scream and moan and wail as much as they like, but they have to deal with a new reality in Washington.

 

Those companies in the tech sector suffered because Trump's trade policies, they are likely to disrupt the supply chain for technology companies. I think the big mistake that people make when they do interviews is they go for the "Gotcha". If Donald Trump, or you, has held your position for months, if not years, you're not going to suddenly turn to me, no matter how hard I question you and then say which “Richard, you know you're right! I've been wrong for all these years.”

 

The interviewee does not have to answer the question. My starting point is always one of respect. I'm grateful that you have given me your valuable time to be interviewed So all my goal is to prod you, to tickle you, to hit you to turn you, to get you to explain what is your position That's all my job is, that is it.

Making the Cut - Todd Yellin

What does escaping with Tibetan refugees have to do with revolutionising TV? Taking risks, something that Netflix's vice president of product embraces as he learns what people want to watch on the streaming service. The greatest risk, however, is tricking his wife (who's not so keen on superheroes) into watching Marvel's Jessica Jones.

 

Todd Yellin

 

You would say to Netflix something is to get complete control as a consumer and how you want to watch your TV when you want to watch it. Now the question is, when you're in a bad mood and you're grumpy, do you want to watch something that's all happy? It depends on the person, some people want to be uplifted like, I'd rather watch something happy, some people want to watch something more miserable.

 

We don't ask them what they like because what we can do is we can watch how millions of people around the world watch TV and based on that, when everything else we know about their viewing behavior we can help people find something great to watch.

 

Alright, this is really sneaky so hopefully my wife doesn't see this but this is what I did. I like superheroes, my wife doesn't like anything with superheroes so what I told her is there's this new drama on Netflix, it's about a woman private investigator, I didn't tell her it's superheroes, so let's watch it. By the time she realized all the special powers of Jessica Jones, she was hooked.

 

We are a very lean forward company that's willing to take a lot of risks to just change how the industry is done. At one time I was a documentary filmmaker, I was trying to follow Tibetan refugees escaping from Chinese control to Tibet over the Himalayas and I didn't speak any Tibetan. So, what is escaping with Tibetan refugees over the high Himalayas have to do with revolutionising TV? You need thick skin for both.

 

I am a huge fan of Black Mirror. Minute for minute, it is the most imaginative TV show I've ever seen. What it's about is it's not only rich imagination and it's brilliant. It's a little dark, it's like The Twilight Zone for the 21st century. Should I talk more about it? I'm happy to, I love the show.

Making the Cut - Ray Wah, Senior Vice President, Dell

Despite his busy schedule, Ray Wah ensures he spends quality time with his sons through gaming. Dell's senior vice president of consumer product marketing also highlights the importance of equipping the young with the knowledge and answers they're seeking.

 

Ray Wah

 

Throughout the years, you can see how the PC is still extremely relevant. In terms of social mobility for any country, the PC is at the heart and the center of that.

 

The first notebook that I have was over 10,000 US. Today PC's are a whole lot more affordable. The younger generation would be extremely comfortable and savvy using the PC at a very early age. This is only good because what we have done is open a wealth and a library of information that they could always have access to. It enables any young child to understand his or her ability to be curious and learn through the ropes of equipping him or herself with the knowledge and the answers that they are seeking.

 

I travel a lot. It's very hard to keep in touch with my sons. Nothing brings us closer together, when all of us organise ourselves into a team and compete with whoever wants to take us on in a game. My favourite game is overwatch. It's really a lot about teamwork, various characters that you take on has both strengths and weaknesses, so you need to organise a team and make sure that the team is strong in all areas to be able to compete and beat your competition.

 

My management philosophy is rooted on first, principles, layered with the need to dynamically lead. We are relentless if you don't change and you don't stay ahead, you could be left behind.
