How long have you been with Acceleration Partners and what is your current role?
I have been with Acceleration Partners for just over one year and I’m currently an Associate Account Manager supporting four accounts and their partnership programmes in the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region.
What do you enjoy most about working in affiliate marketing in APAC?
Building relationships with people from different countries.
APAC is a very diverse region. I enjoy getting to work closely with people from varying cultures and backgrounds, and that speak different languages.
One of the best things about working in the affiliate marketing industry is that everyone is super friendly, and I always feel connected to the people I work with.
What is the biggest life lesson you’ve learned while working at Acceleration Partners?
One of the biggest lessons I’ve learned at Acceleration Partners comes from a saying often shared by our CEO: “control what you can control.”
I tend to overthink things and try to make everything go perfectly, which can cause some stress for me. Since working at Acceleration Partners, I’ve learned that as long as I do the best that I can, then things will turn out the way they should.
How do you like working remote full time?
I was a little worried before I joined Acceleration Partners, but turns out I LOVE it! I am more productive working remotely and I’m surprised how easy it is to connect with my team members—even with those on the other side of the world (via Slack and video calls).
The other thing about working remote that I love is the flexibility. I’m able to go enjoy the sun during lunch time and finish my work later in the day. I even went back to my home country (Hong Kong) for a month to spend time with my family while working.
It would be much harder for me to go back into an office now after having been able to work remotely full-time.
What is your favourite thing to do in Australia?
Explore different beaches! All the beaches I have been to in Australia are stunning.
What’s something about yourself that might surprise us?
I was an athlete in high school; I competed in the long jump and hurdles, and I also played golf.
