Eksakul on being the first representative of Thailand to become CEO for One Month finalist:

The moment when I realize that I am going to the Top 10, my first reaction was of sheer surprise. My thought then was that the one month I spent working and learning at Adecco was already more than worth it for a program. But then I realize I am going further into the next round! I was happy and excited! It is such an honor to represent Thailand in the competition for the Global CEO1Month title. This accomplishment, however, is not mine alone. It is made possible through the support of the awesome people at Adecco Thailand who taught me so much during the last month. And of course, the support of my social media followers. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the people at Adecco Thailand and all who followed me throughout the program. I owe my success to you guys. Thank you very much.
