What do you enjoy most about presenting on live webinars? 

In an age of blogs and tweets it is great to have an opportunity to engage and discuss with the wider bioprocessing community on a subject in detail. With in a webinar we have the opportunity to expand on a few the issues, with out feeling the need to artificially compact the message.

What motivates you?

What motivates me is that I passionately believe in single-use bioprocessing. I believe there are life saving products on the market today that would not but for the fact that they can be made in single-use systems. So the more robust we can make single-use the more they will be implemented resulting in better access to these life changing medicines.

What do you most enjoy about your role?

I have always enjoyed working with a customer to solve a particular issue. I also enjoy the challenge of working with the team to create a solution that enables our customers to do more. We are fortunate enough to be working in an industry that is evolving fast so trying to look to the future to be ready for those challenges is also exciting

What are you looking forward to discussing with the audience?

As I said I passionately believe in single-use technology, but see some of the challenges that still exist. One of those is the need for standardization so I am looking forward to discussing how we can keep the advantages of customized single use solutions but at the same time bring the advantages standardization to the process. With standardization should come higher quality, shorter lead times, a more robust supply chain and lower costs.

What do you hope the audience will learn from this webinar?

I hope to share some ideas and have a discussion on what areas we should be looking for standardization, how some level of standardization could be achieved and what benefits that may bring. I will be doing this by looking at some ideas we may be able to adapt from other industries as well as discussing my thoughts. I would hope the audience would learn that standardization is possible while still having all the benefits of a custom single-use solution.
