First Class Career

Hi, I’m Handi Kurniawan

Bestselling author, speaker and founder of

I worked with some of the best companies in seven countries and five continents. That would mean you could get the best and practical career advice, network with incredibly talented people, and you’d learn faster than normal people.



I give you practical advice and insights not theoretical approaches.

I only work with passionate, positive and high achievers


I give away 80% of my materials free. That materials are considered market best practices.

There are many “experts” out there, so I know I have to earn your trust.

Here’s a little bit about me.

From a small town boy in Indonesia to a truly global professional


I came from a humble family background. When I was a kid, someone told me “It’s pointless to go to a good school out-of-town or overseas.” At that time, I had no idea about what good school or bad school was. I just wanted to study and one day see the world. Deep inside I felt that education and great career is the way to make a difference in life.


By the grace of God, in 17 years starting from high school, I’ve traveled to 5 continents, worked in 7 countries (Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Beijing, Michigan, U.S.A.) and sharing what I learned through corporate works, books, articles, and speaking sessions.


I catch up on higher education, earned two master degrees respectively from the University of Michigan (perfect GPA); the University of Western Australia and I also got a scholarship for post graduate study in Japan America Institute of Management Science, Hawai’i where I obtained three most prestigious awards on leadership, innovation, and student’s choice award.


Receiving many awards are nice but making real, positive impact for as many students and professionals in Asia, especially in Indonesia are my passion and mission. Making friends and connecting with people around the world are my desire.


My works have been featured by a long list of media, including the Globe Asia, SWA business magazine, Esquire, Femina, MensHealth, MetroTV, The Jakarta Post and many more.


In business, I have the privilege to work with best people at all levels from Chairman of the company, CEOs, Entrepreneurs, Managers, Professors, Young Professionals to College Students. I understand their dreams, aspirations, goals, frustrations and their challenges!


These are invaluable life and professional lessons and now you can learn all these faster!


There is a saying ”Smart man learns from his own mistake but a wise man learns from someone else’s mistakes. The stupid one never learns.”


So you must learn from the best to accelerate your learning. Why do you have to do trial & error yourself if someone is ready to share with you?


Through this site I want to share more to the world and help highly motivated and potential people becoming more successful in their career and having a colorful life.


Career doesn’t have to be dull!
