1. Why did you decide to do a webinar with Business Review Webinars?
Webinars are an important vehicle for helping us reach our target audiences with key messages. Given our positive experience with webinars in the past, it is to our advantage to continue participating in them. We see Business Review Webinars as the right partner to help deliver our messages to the market.
2. What are you looking forward to explaining to the audience?
We would like to educate audiences to the trends that are occurring in the pharmaceutical industry, and what to consider when choosing a drug delivery system. In particular, we would like to make them aware of the options available with prefilled syringes.
3. How did you get into the industry and what do you most enjoy about your role?
I started working in the industry in the area of drug discovery, followed by positions in medical technology, and drug development. I am fascinated by the ever-changing nature of the industry. My current position offers me a great deal of satisfaction as I have the opportunity to interact with a wide-variety of internal and external stakeholders.
4. Football or tennis?
I like both sports, though I am but a spectator in football and a more talented in playing tennis.
5. What would someone be surprised to know about you?
I see myself as a cosmopolitan; living & working in so many different places that I feel the world as a whole is my home!
