Anusorn Swasdee (DTM)
About Me: I want to improve my ears for multinational accents of English and spread Tinglish around the world. Just kidding!!! Actually, I'd like to survive communication, have a relax chat, and improve inter-person relationship. 🙂 I'm working as a Technical Officer in Space Affairs Center, Defence Information and Space Technology Department, Office of the Permanent Secretary for Defence, Ministry of Defence, Thailand. It's the policy-related brance of Thai Defence. In technical and engineering field, we can't wait for knowledge to be translated into Thai language; we have to read from English sources. 🙂 I'm more of an objective guy. Set targets and use any mean to achieve them. Don't like subjectives much; they can't be measured exactly and tends to interfere with communication. 🙂 After work, I like to swim because it's a good aerobic exercise and has less impact on my hip and knees. I like swimming slowly and using elliptical trainers. Basically, all non-impact exercises are my favourites. I also read Thai and English versions of J light novels and watch Daily Show and Netflix. 🙂 I've finished Traditional DTM in 2019, Presentation Mastery and Dynamic Leadership both in 2018. I'm now doing Engaging Humor with Buddies, Innovative Planning with Bangkok Club and Visionary Communication with Capitol Toastmasters Club.
