“Always hire someone better than you “, mentor him/her to gain confidence & wisdom, inspire him/her to become the best that he/she can be. The best way to learn is to teach someone full of idealism and determination. To draw out the very best from your mentee, the mentor must bring his very best every time they engage, collaborate, share your wisdom and find happiness in the success of your mentee.

Can you give us a glimpse of what you will talk about at the Healthcare Asia Forum?

Quality healthcare is every human being’s right and not a privilege borne out of one’s ability to afford the service. It is therefore incumbent upon all stakeholders in healthcare to work as ONE in providing value healthcare: ONE that achieves the best clinical outcomes at a lower cost of care across a service platform that creates a meaningful experience for each patient and family.
