Hi there, Vince here. My real name is Quyền. It’s tricky to pronounce for folks who don’t speak Vietnamese so I decided to pick a nickname 15 years ago. Guess where it came from.

Professional, I’m a Cloud Customer Engineer / Sales Engineer at @google ☁️. I look after Enterprise customers in the UK Entertainment (Gaming & Gambling) sector. My specialisation is Application Modernisation - covering modern application development, CI/CD, containerisation/Kubernetes and more. All in all, to help businesses build products better, faster and cheaper. However, during my time at Google, I got a chance to get hands on with several complex Data transformation programmes. Now (I think) I know what I’m talking about when it comes to Data Engineering, Analytics & Machine Learning 🤔.

Outside of work, I co-host @unlock fm 🎙 - a podcast series exploring the stories, career, philosophies, tools & tactics of young Vietnamese around the world. It started as a small project but as of March 2022, It’s been featured on Spotify and Apple’s Top 20 Podcasts in Vietnam and ranked #1 on Apple’s Top Careers Podcast in Vietnam - with 15,000+ monthly listeners.

There’s no perfect way to assess someone’s personality or characteristics but PrinciplesYou is the most insightful & accurate test I’ve come across. My Archetypes are the Orchestrator, the Coach & the Planner. Nonetheless, in my own words, my strengths are:

  • Bringing order to chaos / strategic planning
  • Bias for action / high practicality
  • Learning & organising knowledge
  • Trusting in and unlocking people’s potential
  • Building & facilitating authentic connection / appreciating individuality

What I’m not so great at

  • Creativity
  • Flexibility
  • Being content with the status quo (in life / work / social groups..)

What I value

  • Family & friends
  • Compassion
  • Authenticity & honesty
  • Good design

What I love
