We had the rare opportunity to engage Terry in Singapore and Malaysia and were much impressed by his wealth of knowledge in complementary healthcare. Terry was engaged to conduct several public forums featuring the global trend towards complementary medicine and addressing health concerns of both countries. Importantly, he undertook numerous media interviews on behalf of VitaHealth from the leading press and magazine titles in both countries. Terry's enlightening and informative talks were most insightful and very well received. He touched on the key benefits of Integrated medicine and spoke of immunity, weight management and cardiovascular health management topics. Our forums were well attended by media, our business associates and our ardent consumers. Many had truly benefited much from Terry's seminars and interviews and had words of praise for him subsequent to the event. Terry is a confident and a profound speaker with grace and ease on stage. Importantly, he keeps his listeners interested and motivated. Terry's interaction with the public and media during his trip had provided VitaHealth a successful platform to address and boost consumer confidence in the aftermath of the PAN saga. His media exposure had indeed proven to be a fruitful and insightful PR and branding exercise for VitaHealth.
