As a CEO you need to 'earn' the trust of so many stakeholders. Your employees, your leadership team, your partners, your clients, your global company, shareholders, and trust goes beyond meeting budgeted numbers. It has to do with the culture you build, of creating a conducive work environment, of empowering people, of investing in their growth. I believe trust is the most important attribute for a leader. If you have your people's trust you can move mountains."

Nisha Narayanan, COO & Director, Red FM & Redtro and CEO, Digital Radio (Mumbai), said, "It feels great to be recognized by WCRCINT. It's a matter of pride for all of us at Red FM to receive this prestigious award as I see to it as a team effort. My endeavor has always been to promote a participatory culture at the workplace fostering some of the most innovative ideas that we have worked on be it 'Malishka ko mat sun' or 'Mumbai khadde main' or even the most recent campaign 'National Jock Exchange'. My goal for the brand is to take a geographical spread to cover all the important tier 1 and tier 2 towns as these would be the growth hubs for us in the near future."

Vocalising the essence of leadership, seminal business leader Rajeev Krishnan, CEO, Spar Hypermarket, said,  "This definitely has to be one of the most humble experiences in my life. To be able to do what you do, to be able to love doing it every day of your life, and to be able to do it with people you love, is the ultimate in life. The word 'trust' is an extremely powerful word and to be given that responsibility is even more breathtaking in itself. I'm extremely grateful and I certainly hope I can live up to this honor for years to come."
