1. Why did you decide to do a webinar with Business Review Webinars?

We liked the idea of being able to talk directly to a large number of potential customers and present our thoughts and views in regards to the challenges for packaging set out in the EU Falsified Medicines Directive.

2. What should participants expect to get out of the webinar?

Packaging offers an ideal means to protect goods from both counterfeit & tampering challenges. We will use our Brand Protection and Healthcare experience to highlight the key security issues and the variety of cost effective solutions available to meet both legislative and company requirements.

3. What is the most challenging but rewarding part of your role at Essentra Packaging?

Building awareness of our business and product offer across our categories and delivering real value to our customers. Last year we won three industry awards in recognition of our products and services which was a great achievement for our business and rewarding to the team.

4. How do you relax in your leisure time?

With two small children my free time is spent with my family, although whether that is relaxing is another question!

5. What was your favourite academic subject and why?

I always enjoyed looking at the environmental processes that shaped the world and so Geography was my favourite subject. My children now have the ‘joy’ of me pointing out these features when we are on our travels!
