Mr. Robin Spencer, Chief Executive Officer of Prudential Thailand, welcomed and congratulated members of Team ‘CareU’, young representatives from Thailand who won 1st place for the ‘Nutrition’ problem statement category at the ‘PRUFintegrate 2021’ innovation competition, organized by Prudential Singapore (PACS).
The competition brought together next-gen innovators from around the world, who are passionate in innovating solutions to solve health, wealth, social and business challenges. The Thailand-based team, ‘CareU’, came up with the solution ‘Change the Environment’, which alters different aspects of the environment you live in, in order to change your daily habits and make huge impacts on the world around you. Their solution included the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) to recommend ways to rearrange your fridge to opt for healthy food choices, causing the conscious mind to pick up the food that is easiest to reach.
In addition to the competition prizes, the winning team members also won the opportunity to have lunch with Prudential Thailand’s CEO, Mr. Robin Spencer. Mr.Spencer praised their efforts and passion in innovating to help people to live healthier and longer. The winning team were very impressed and inspired from learning about Mr. Spencer’s life story and his passion towards Prudential strategy, and left the lunch with an interest in future internship opportunities with Prudential Thailand.
