{Patreon Special} Arsenio’s Business English Podcast | Season 6: Episode 34 | Positive & Negative Feedback: Workplace Scenario

Back in 2017, I had a boss that attacked me in more ways than one, threatening me by saying, “if you want to continue working here, we need to have a conversation.”

I had shivers go down my back, and at that exact time, I quit.

First, NEVER be disrespected by anyone who threatens you in that way. Second, the ridiculous conversation we had was all about his feelings and nothing about concrete facts. I went on to quit and it was the GREATEST decision I ever made.

In today’s podcast, we’re going to listen to a workplace scenario situation and dissect if it was a good conversation or not, as well as other pointers that will help you in all your relationships.

Arsenio’s Business English Podcast | Season 6: Episode 31 | When CEOs Lack Empathy

If you work for a boss, manager, CEO or anyone above you that lacks empathy, your life will be miserable. In today’s interview, a CEO by the name of Graham says “if you’re not here at work, you don’t get paid” — indicating that ‘sick leave with pay’ is something he doesn’t impose. 

So, when funerals come, emergencies soar, COVID happens, he’s the type of CEO that will not give you a paid day off = lack of empathy. These people you should NEVER work for, so in today’s podcast, it’s going to be a passionate-filled tirade on these people who lack the number one quality in human existence.


Arsenio’s Business English Podcast | Season 6: Episode 30 | Sickness & Business

Britons average 6.5 sick leave days a year. In America, if you take sick leave within the first couple of months of your new job, you’re not going to go back.

Meanwhile, in Australia, you have 30 holidays and a minimum of 15 sick days a year. 

A Goldman Sachs recent survey revealed that first/second-year consultants are averaging 90 days of work a week, plunging their mental health into the red zone and not having ANY personal time. The CEO, of course, shrugs his shoulders because it’s all about the money.

A complete opposite of this would be my business client in Bangkok buying each of his employees a one-year membership to a gym, giving them the opportunity to workout during their lunch break, too.

In today’s long episode, I reveal the good, the bad, the ugly, and what you can do if you’re working in a highly stressful environment.


Arsenio’s Business English Podcast | Investment | Financial Shocks: What Have You Learned?

If you haven’t learned anything since the world shut down last year in terms of your finances, then you haven’t experienced growth.  When the first shut down had happened, that had to be the biggest financial shock in my life — knowing that I wasn’t financially secured with my “job,” and being just hopeless in the world of money. I had to reassess everything and realize what was working and what wasn’t….and the simple fact was WHAT I’VE BEEN DOING since living in Thailand hasn’t been working. That was the “a-ha” moment that I needed to take control of my finances. So, it’s time to dive into the biggest risks of our lives and what was learned!


{Patreon Special} Arsenio’s Business English Podcast | Season 6: Episode 33 | Airports & My Favorite Airports in The World

When it comes to Asia, they have the best airports in the world and it’s not even close.  Compared to the western world, Asian airports put them to shame.  For instance, Changi International in Singapore is literally 30 years ahead of its time — that’s how great it is! However, there are some airports that fall way below average in Asia such as KLIA2 in Malaysia, Vientiane’s stereotyping (which affects customer service), and the shambolic international airport in Ho Chi Minh City.  So, what are your three most important perks for an airport and your three least — listen to the podcast to find out what type of perks there actually are!

Arsenio’s Business English Podcast | Season 6: Episode 28 | The Way We Use Our Time: 24 Hours

Are you aware of what you do throughout your day? How much time is wasted at specific times? How about what you think about? On your journey to work, in the morning, or even in front of the TV?

Arsenio’s Business English Podcast | Season 6: Episode 27 | Trends: Disruptive Technology

I always look at the beneficial aspects of things. I find the topic of AI to be extremely amusing because people seriously think we’re on the cusp of robots taking over. However, AI has made our life easier and has forced us to think and become more sustainable instead of possessing that industrial-aged mindset. Autonomy is here, AR/VR is emerging, and Ready Player One is no joke. In today’s podcast, we’ll be discussing how well you adapt to change and seeing the culture-scape change right before our eyes.


Arsenio’s Business English Podcast | Investment | Different Investments; Different Ages

There are different types of financial products for certain people based on age, what they’re doing, and what their intent is; whether it’s day-trading or investing in stocks. Based on your country, I suggest you do some research in terms of the different types of things made available, but also watch different YouTube videos so you understand how investment portfolios work. Financial managers/brokers are NEVER in the best intent for you…so be wary of that! In today’s podcast, we cover these topics.
