B. Braun Group
I work as an Innovation and Business Development Manager at B. Braun Group, a healthcare company that manufactures medical devices and solutions. My job entails identifying internal and external innovative ideas which we can develop into new products to protect and improve the health of people across the world.
My high school Physics teacher inspired me to study engineering at the University. Since then, I've had an incredibly supportive network of mentors who have influenced the changes in my career path to what I'm doing today.
My playlist has a little bit of everything - from Jazz to traditional Luhya music.
Knitting and Crocheting
First, never stop learning. Stay curious and updated in your field.
Second, it is okay to have a non-linear career path. Keep an open mind and always be on the look out for new opportunities.
I read - a lot!
I find new companies which can be friends with my company, and we can all play together and make cool products that help sick people feel better.
I'm currently supporting the roll out of our new company strategy. It's exciting to see how a company that was founded over 180 years ago is adopting new technology and preparing for the future.
I was an ICT4D Intern at a Community Knowledge Centre.
Overcoming Imposter Syndrome and learning to negotiate and advocate for myself.
What upcoming technological innovation will dramatically impact the industry in the next five years?
Artificial Intelligence and Robotics are dramatically changing the Healthcare industry, from enabling early detection to AI-assisted surgeries.
Hard to pick one - but I'd say everyone needs to pay as much attention to their soft skills as they do to their technical skills. Emotional intelligence, great communication skills and creative problem solving skills will get you very far.
Yes I have. I quit my job to move to a new country for a 1 year fellowship program that had no guaranteed future after that. It did pay off. I experienced a lot of growth over the one year, and the work that I did during the fellowship built a foundation for a new job with the same company.
