We at Speakers Connect are delighted to share that serial entrepreneur Azran Osman-Rani is featured on the cover of Tatler Malaysia for January 2022! For this cover story, Azran shares why he is driven to redefine modern healthcare into a more holistic one.
Here is an excerpt:
Though his career has taken him to wildly different industries, Azran says he has never shied away from jumping into the deep end and taking on new challenges. The process of discovering new ways to solve problems in each new business he leads has always fascinated him. To him, the prospect of tackling something fresh, starting with a clean slate, is something that energises him.
“The good thing about being a startup is I don’t have any legacy systems or constraints,” he explains. “I don’t have to change or deal with existing businesses, though it is a double-edged sword because you often start with little to no money and you need to rally your stakeholders to convince them to believe in your vision.”
Take a look at the feature here.
