On 13th June 2018, Savvycom team was delighted with a chance to greet Mrs Cherie Blair, wife of former British Prime Minister who is the leader of the delegation from Cherie Blair Foundation for Women and Qualcomm Wireless Reach at our home-sweet-home headquarters in Hanoi.
The meeting started off with Ms Van Dang, Savvycom CEO, talking about her personal journey, from selling peanuts to help her mom out in the street corner 30 years ago to having an international business that appeared on Clutch’s TOP 25 IT outsourcing companies. She mentioned the help of her mentor from the Mentoring Women in Business programme with love and gratitude, believing that it was the encounter that changed the course of her life. She also stated that Mrs Cherie Blair has been a huge inspiration, being such a go-getter and a prominent voice for equal treatments between boys and girls.
For those reasons, Ms Van Dang now returns to the programme as a mentor, seeking to help talented women to join the IT industry.
During the visit, Ms Van Dang also took Mrs Cherie Blair and the delegation on a tour of Savvycom office. There, Mrs Cherie Blair was fascinated with Savvycom’s Happy Corner and the motivational slogans hanging around the office.
