SINGAPORE, Feb. 26, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Hong Bao Media, the homegrown provider of a new generation of communications services for a new era of communications, today officially launched the Hong Bao Media Savvy Awards 2018, to recognise local Senior Business Leaders for their media skills, and to showcase skilled and credible home-grown communicators.

Each week until April 30, 2018, HBM will shortlist a local corporate figure who has demonstrated excellence in a media appearance.

Senior Business Leaders can also be nominated by their Communications Directors, or they can nominate themselves through our awards website www.hongbaomedia.com/mediasavvy.html.

"During our media training and executive presence workshops for Senior Business Leaders, we sometimes hear the view that Asians lag their Western counterparts in media and presentation skills," said Hong Bao Media CEO and former CNBC anchor Mark Laudi.

"By launching the Awards, we want to prove that our local business leaders can be just as good communicators as their Western counterparts.

"Our vision is to build a culture of excellence in communication, to maximise the potential of Asian companies in the Asian Century."

Four local Business Leaders have already been shortlisted for the Hong Bao Media Savvy Awards during the soft launch phase. Read HBM's reasons for nominating them here:

SMRT CEO Desmond Kuek 
Scoot CEO Lee Lik Shin 
Star Alliance CEO Dr Jeffrey Goh 
Former Temasek Holdings Managing Director and now Minister for Trade and Industry, S Iswaran

The winner of the Hong Bao Media Savvy Awards will be announced at a special ceremony in May.
