From the CEO
DATO' PRABA THIAGARAJAH
CEO, Basis Bay Sdn. Bhd.
Dato’ Praba Thiagarajah, the CEO and founder of Basis Bay Groups, is a man of easy smiles and laser-like focus. Enterprise Asia has recognised the business acumen of the man behind the company with the Outstanding Entrepreneurship Award in 2010. He shares how he built opportunities from challenges to make Basis Bay a force to be reckoned with as a global IT solutions provider.
1 Dato’ Praba has always been a self-starter. His mother shared fond memories of a driven young boy who was not afraid of hard work and believes in challenging himself, be it on an academic front or anything else in life.
2 He started out as an engineer for Hitachi and IBM. A strategic thinker, he adopted Japanese and American management style to build a company supported with world-class talents to service their clients locally and internationally. Dato’ Praba encourages intrapreneurship within his organisation to support his employees’ growth and to inculcate innovation from their ideas and contribution.
3 Belief in self is an important factor that drove Dato’ Praba’s success, giving him strength and courage to explore his entrepreneurial spirit during an economic recession. His hard work paid off when Basis Bay received global recognition as an innovative IT solution provider brand and propels Basis Bay to penetrate the international market. His most memorable achievement is the David-versus-Goliath-like success in establishing Basis Bay as a serious contender in the international market where previously only the IT giants played.
4 Dato’ Praba believes that we must have the confidence to explore new territory and innovate for continuous self-improvement. Learn to exploit one’s skills as knowledge and capacity building is your insurance to maintain business’ sustainability in a challenging market.
5 There is no easy path to success. Hard work must be coupled with the flexibility to take advantage of opportunities available or even to create opportunities. A wise entrepreneur must be willing to look at the long-term picture rather than be satisfied with a short-term accomplishment.
6 It is important to have a meaningful life enriched with the ones you love. That is why Dato’ Praba reserves his weekends for his family, making sure that his extensive travels take place almost exclusively during the week and not infringing on his quality time with his loved ones.
