Troy Westley, the CEO of CareMonkey, an award-winning electronic health and safety system again joins eHealth Radio and the Healthcare and Technology Channels. CareMonkey automates the process of collecting medical and emergency details for organisations with a duty of care.
Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels & guest Troy Westley discuss the following:
- Troy, tell us a little about CareMonkey and how this innovative idea came from your own personal lightbulb moment.
- CareMonkey has had a massive year of wins, including taking out the world's largest ever startup prize with investors at Slush 2015. What do you think it is about CareMonkey that makes the system so unique and is impressing people globally?
- CareMonkey has really stretched its legs in 2015 - Troy, you've taken the system from Australia, to New Zealand, the Philippines, Finland and Ireland. What's next for 2016?
- Richard Branson recently said that CareMonkey is ''one to watch'' after your recent win at the 2015 Talent Unleashed Awards. It must be incredibly rewarding to see CareMonkey's value recognised by such a respected businessman. Is it the big wins like this that make the hard work worthwhile, or are the smaller wins day to day just as significant?
