UST Global had signed up a three-year deal as the principal sponsor of CSK last year.
Addressing the audience, MS Dhoni talked about his association with UST Global, and why he thought it was a special one. He said, “The entire CSK team, including me, are proud and delighted to be associated with UST Global. I have been part of many such events but this one is always unique as UST Global focuses on giving back to society.”
He also shared his perspective on what he felt about the power of technology. Responding to a point made by Sajan Pillai, Chief Executive Officer of UST Global, who spoke to the audience about how the company is taking healthcare to the next level through technology, like making painful insulin injections a thing of the past, the CSK captain said, “Technology is the future. I have been fortunate that I have not taken an injection for years now, but if in time I need to take one, I am sure that technology would have been developed to the point of making it painless.”
MS Dhoni also urged the youth to take up sports. He said, “While it’s fun to be tech-savvy and enjoy sports on the Xbox and play stations of the world, it’s important for the youth to get out, soak some sun and play a sport, the hard way.”
Sajan Pillai, Chief Executive Officer of UST Global, said “Through this initiative, we take the opportunity to express our gratitude to our employees and customers for their continuous support in making UST Global one of the finest IT services companies in the world. Business and sports like cricket have much in common, with success of both hinging tightly on team effort, agility and strategy.
