Phillip’s dress code, as he describes it, is “pretty professional”. Suit trousers and a proper shirt are standard wear, and a tie is required when he has to meet clients. While the only things he can get fancy with are his socks and cufflinks, Phillip understands the power of making a good first impression, and has started wearing a full suit as much as he can. “I really think that the “dress for the job you want, not the job you have” motto is a great one to live by. At the same time, it’s not what you wear, but how you wear it.” Phillip’s favourite part of his work is the people, and his least favourite is the spreadsheets, but it seems he’s happy where he is because he believes in working for a great boss, not a ‘great’ company. “If you don’t have a mentor and somebody to guide, challenge, and inspire you, you won’t develop as a professional or as a person.” An online article he recently read, by author and motivational speaker Mark Manson, has also inspired him. “It’s called F**k Yes or No, which basically means that you should be 100% on board with something — be it a decision, relationship, or job — or it’s a No and you should walk away to find your Yes. It helps me to focus on what I actually want to do, rather than what I think I should.” When he’s not at work, Phillip finds that the best way to catch up with his friends is by doing something active together, be it playing football, riding bikes, or going rock climbing or paddleboarding. “My girlfriend and I met scuba diving, and I’ve been diving for about 9 months now.” With all of his family living back in the UK, Phillip sets time aside on his weekends to Skype with his parents, but he’s also enjoyed experiencing all the food that Asia has to offer — chicken feet included.
