Eapen gets a gold star for his explanation in this interview

Nikhil Eapen, CEO of StarHub, explains how one of his businesses works so well on his interview with CNBC, which is why we are nominating him for the Media Savvy Awards 2023.

Watch and read below for our assessment.

We launched the Media Savvy Awards in 2018 to recognise local business leaders for their communications skills, and to showcase authentic and credible home-grown communicators.

Past winners of the awards have included CEO of AirAsia Tony Fernandes, CEO of Ninja Van Lai Chang-Wen, Group CEO of NTUC Enterprise Co-operative Limited Seah Kian Peng, and founder of Awfully Chocolate Lyn Lee.

Supported by the Asia Pacific Association of Communications Directors (APACD) and the Public Relations And Communications Association APAC (PRCA APAC) - we highlight shining examples for other local business leaders to follow, and to build a culture of excellence in communication, to maximise the potential of Asian companies in the Asian Century.

Eapen explains the purpose of Lifehub+, a business under StarHub that is able to extract health data from its users’ wearable devices and make them available to the medical ecosystem. Using examples, Eapen says the ecosystem can be the users’ family doctor or even fitness coach.

With these done, it can lead to potential preventive care for its users.

Eapen’s explanation is short, sweet and informative, the kind that we like in an interview. Some interviewees get stuck in the details and miss out on the big picture or are unable to articulate why their point is important.

What Eapen does in this interview is exemplary.

If you know Nikhil Eapen, share this article and congratulate him on being nominated for the Media Savvy Awards 2023.
