IPA was very honoured to invite Mr. Gita Wirjawan to give us an insight of the corporate world.
Here's a summary of what he felt were important traits to be successful.There are basically two ingredients: EQ (Emotional Quotient) & Common Sense.He felt that it was more important to have good EQ, being able to express clear views, and being able to mix around with different people instead of having high IQ (Intelligent Quotient).
Common sense - though it sounds simple - is a powerful tool in making good decisions.He realised that many people merely followed the standard procedures to do things instead of using more common sense to achieve the objectives.
About the Speaker:
Mr. Gita Wirjawan is a Harvard graduate and is now working at Goldman Sachs, a leading global investment firm.When he first joined the company as the Vice President at the age of 36 a couple years ago, this large corporation was very skeptical about investing in Indonesia and was more supportive of investing in China which was showing strong growth.Mr. Wirjawan was instrumental in making the entire corporation see Indonesia with a different perspective.He had so far brought in over USD3 billion in investments in Indonesia in less than two years.

A former JPMorgan country manager in Indonesia, 45-year-old Wirjawan is now part of the Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono government, the cabinet-level chairman of Indonesia‚s Investment Coordinating Board, known by its Indonesian acronym BPKM. At Morgan, he helped drive deals to Indonesia when the country wasn‚t as fashionable as it is becoming now. "I fully understand the concerns that investors have here," says Wirjawan.

Mulyani was once regarded as irreplaceable but her loss wasn‚t as painful to Indonesia as the markets had feared.
Wirjawan agrees. "Infrastructure is the key," he says. "This will be the major focus of this government. Indeed, as Wirjawan was speaking, his president was setting down his landmark National Day Speech that mostly dwelt on upgrading the country‚s appalling infrastructure. Wirjawan looks to countries such as neighbouring Australia, booming on the back of a minerals exports bonanza to China. Wirjawan notes that Indonesia has "a lot of the same stuff as Australia and we can get it out of the ground cheaper. But getting it to port has been a problem. That is fast being fixed."
Wirjawan is also focused on winning and then securing investment rating upgrades for Indonesia.

"Across the board, people are trying to rotate out of the stock market and into a more safe haven," said Gita Wirjawan, the former president director for JPMorgan in Indonesia.
