Suresh Nair is a multi-award winning journalist with more than 25 years experience in the Singapore print-media, broadcast industry and online communications.
Since 1980, after graduating from the Singapore Press Holdings' School of Journalism, he has written and edited for The New Nation, The Singapore Monitor, The Straits Times and The New Paper in varied fields from current affairs, foreign news, business, entertainment, lifestyle and sports.
He has also freelanced in the broadcast arena with MediaCorp during major global sports events such as the World Cup and Olympic Games.
His immense strength lies in his wealth of news-contacts since heading The Straits Times' Home Affairs Desk as Assistant to the Editor in the mid-1980s, wherein he won multiple journalist-awards for major news-exposes like Singapore's first cock-fighting "ring" in Mandai, Singapore’s first convicted criminal to be caned, twice the legal limit, with 48 strokes and the Malaysia Cup football bribery scandal.
His knowledge of international print media stems from writing regularly for several newspapers and magazines in Europe, the Middle East and Asia. He continues to have freelance arrangements with overseas print, broadcast and online medias. Among his current editorial clients are NTUC Media, Petir (PAP magazine), North-East CDC and South-West CDC.
His expertise in editorial-communications training started in the late-1990s, when he coached the younger core of journalists at the Singapore Press Holdings’ School of Journalism. He currently does freelance strategic, crisis and media training and is also involved in part-time public relations work, too.
