Southeast Asia Globe - - Editorial - Ruth Duqué Busi­ness de­vel­op­ment ex­ec­u­tive

Born and raised in Yan­gon, Ruth moved to Cambo- dia in 2009 and spent close to a decade work­ing in the hos­pi­tal­ity in­dus­try be­fore join­ing South­east

Asia Globe in April, en­thused by the prospect of de­vel­op­ing her sales skills and busi­ness acu­men.

“My job en­tails con­tact­ing new busi­nesses that might want to work with us. I re­ally en­joy the process of find­ing these com­pa­nies and fig­ur­ing out what a po­ten­tial part­ner­ship might look like,” she said, adding that get­ting the op­por­tu­nity to meet peo­ple from all walks of life is per­haps her favourite part of the job.

“Work­ing at the Globe has taught me a lot. I've met so many peo­ple from dif­fer­ent coun­tries with a range of per­spec­tives,” she said. “It's an ex­pe­ri­ence that has made me want to learn so much more about the world around me.”

Out­side the of­fice, Ruth can be found shar­ing a drink with friends, or tak­ing time to draw or dance. “But most peo­ple don't know that about me,” she said.
