To his belief that shared on a published book "Career 4.0", no one will be lost with a set of values if we all have to adapt to this fast-changing, audacious future that one technological era could offer. Besides that, a simple sharing of a psychotherapist - Mr. Phuong Pham, which is about connecting generations in the family by sharing his own experiences and stories, has connected and empathized with the part of life that we all live through and encouraged all to live with understanding and compassion for each other.

She said "No" to the field of finance, which has inherently been the success of her family, to say "Yes" to her true passion for handicraft from bamboo - a wonderous wealth that nature has given to Vietnam. Saying "No" to great collaboration opportunities going against her core values means being able to say "Yes" to a future she genuinely wishes for. Her journey of self-discovery found success with the bamboo handicraft village, where disabled artisans found new meanings for their lives. Her speech has inspired and urged participants to seek the definition and meaning of their own version of "success".
