SPEX2 Award 2014

Coincidental with the news storm about sudden increase of subsidized petrol, I had a great night at Kempinski Ballroom. XL Corporate Strategy, my team, invited again in this year SPEX2 awarding night. SPEX2 stands for Strategy Performance Execution Excellence (SPEX2) Award. As the name implies, its an appreciation for companies who had managed to show great execution in their strategies. This year weve won Best Strategy in Telco (concecutively since last year) and Best Strategy Officer for my boss Ferry Suryana.

Delicious food, great event and a photo session with Pak Hasnul at the end. Perks of having an awesome job with super smart team mates.
