Juanito Sagun, Jr. , AV Product & Sales Trainer, Cheil MEA RHQ, Dubai, United Arab Emirates
Dubai is second home for Juanito Sagun Jr. and he strongly feels that all the success and opportunity that he has been looking for is here.
He’s presently employed as a Product and Sales Trainer of Cheil MEA RHQ for Samsung Brand, an industry leader in technology and most admired electronics company.
This native son of Navotas has been in Dubai for about 8 years already. He has been in the corporate world for the past 13 years. His greatest achievement so far is when he did a presentation for his previous company, the Eros Group which won the “Best Idea of the Year Award 2010” under Customer Service Category for its Eros Service on Wheels innovative concept.
Though unmindful of the many good things he has done to Filipinos and expats who wanted to embrace a bright future in Middle East, Juanito is credited for the training of more than 10, 000 employees – a feat which earned him accolades. In the course of his professional loads, he has traveled to the cities of the Gulf Cooperation Countries (GCC) teaching and persuading workers to give their utmost best in their chosen jobs.
He thought living and working in a multi-cultural environment would be very difficult for him. He has proven it wrong. “Every single moment I have stayed in the desert is a learning experience. I cannot even exactly identify the most valuable one because each time I live here is very valuable to me. For sure there are ups and downs but living away from family and home bring you closer to God and I thank him for all blessing I have been receiving every single day; having a good work, supportive friends and housemates made my life in Dubai easier.”
“Life is full of mystery so it’s up to you if you gonna make it more exciting or miserable; its all how you see God’s living in your life.”
Today, the Filipino Community in UAE considers Juanito Sagun, Jr. as one of the Filipino Achievers and Trailblazers in the Emirates because of his noteworthy achievements.
