Joie De Vivre 乐享人生

Being sad or happy is a state of mind, and we always have the right to choose whether we want to spend our days feeling down in the dumps or happy as a lark.

A Google search on Nelson Chew of Pensonic Holdings Bhd, yielded more than ten webpages of remarkable content and images. The scion of the Pensonic empire, Chew is the second generation and youngest of the three sons of Dato’ Sri Chew Weng Khak, founder of the homegrown Penang-flavoured success story.

Often seen in the company of celebrities and socialites, Chew junior is a tour de force in the boardroom and among corporate echelons. This flamboyant Executive Director of Pensonic summarises, “Although we brothers share many roles together, my main responsibilities are leading the brand management, communications, market research, customer service and exports.”

The journey from Keat Radio to the multi-conglomerate Pensonic, was not always easy and filled with stark realities. “We lived above our retail shop where we had the opportunity to interact with customers. I remember answering phone calls and issuing cash bills even at a very young age.”

Although not purpose-built for Pensonic, the three Chew brothers always knew their destinies. “We were lucky enough to be given the freedom to select our majors. However, we always understood that our father wanted us to be in the business that he has created.”

The one thing I learned from my folks is to be a trustworthy and reputable person. Say what you mean and mean what you say. Walk the talk.

With friends the likes of Alan Yun and Amber Chia, it is hard to pin down a favourite celebrity. “Would it be too cliché if I say my favourite star is my dad, the founder of Pensonic? I see a trustworthy, hardworking, humble and very sharp person. A 30-minute conversation with him will give me the knowledge that’ll probably take me weeks to learn.”

Pensonic is dedicated to ‘Your Enjoyment’. As the corporate motto goes, Chew’s joie de vivre is infectious. “I bring my personal element of fun into whatever I do. Even selling kitchen appliances or refrigerators can be fun. If you make your work enjoyable, every moment will be good. In a nutshell, my whole life feels like a hobby.”

Pearls of wisdom from this inspiring individual come in spades. “Never be afraid to fail or lose. You need to work twice as hard for everything, focus and do more than others. Rewards will come in due time.”

悲伤或快乐只是一种精神状态,我们有权选择是否在沮丧情绪中度日,抑或像百灵鸟一样的快乐生活。

如果用谷歌搜索遍视利控股有限公司 (Pensonic Holdings Bhd) 的周俊方 (Nelson Chew),将会发现逾10个网页中非同凡响的内容和图片。除了身为 Pensonic 王朝的后裔,并且作为槟城发家、成功故事创始者拿督斯里周荣吉的第二代,也是后者三名儿子中的幼子。

长期在社会名流的熏陶下,周俊方在董事会和企业梯队中形成一股强大的力量。这名神采奕奕的遍视利执行董事总结,虽然兄弟们共同身兼众多角色,但他的主要职责是领导品牌管理、沟通、市场研究,客户服务
和出口。

从父亲初始开创的 Keat Radio 到现今多元化的遍视利,这段旅程并非一帆风顺,其中也充斥着严峻的现实。“我们一直生活在零售店里,所以与顾客的互动非常多。我记得在很小的时候,就已经学会接电话和开现
金账单。”

我从家人那里学会要成为一名值得信赖和讲求信誉的人。说出和落实你的想法,说到做到。

虽然他们不是专为遍视利而设,但三兄弟却对于他们的命运版图思路清晰。“首先我们很幸运,可以自由选择专业。然而,心里一直都很明白,父亲希望我们继承他创办的
事业。”

拥有如著名艺人袁锦伦和谢丽萍等朋友,周俊方对于自己最喜欢的明星名人难以确认。“如果要我说,我最喜欢的明星应该是我爸爸-遍视利公司的创始人,这是否太老套?但我从他身上看到值得信赖、勤劳、谦虚、精明,务实的特点。一般上和他进行30分钟的交谈后,我可能需要几周的时间来消化和学习。

正如遍视利座右铭所强调:致力于带给顾客“您的乐享”,周俊方的生活方式也具有感染力。“无论我做什么,都带有本身的乐趣体会。甚至卖厨房用品或冰箱也能感受趣味性。如果你让工作的情绪愉快,每一分钟都是美好。简而言之,我的一生都像是体验自己的爱好。”

智慧的妙语如珠激励人心。不要害怕失败或失去,你需要加倍努力工作,集中精力比别人做得更多,并且将在适当的时刻获得回报。
