Tenure with Medtronic: 25+ years across ANZ

What motivates you to work in the ANZ Medtech industry?

The Medical Device arena has become a very complex and  challenging environment. Working in the Medtech industry,  provides an opportunity to work with teams that produce new and innovative technologies which provides life changing outcomes for the patient. When you see these results, it makes you feel very proud to be a part of that process.

Why did you attend the Event?

This is an ideal forum to catch up with the C Suite & Executives within the private hospitals in NZ.

What were your highlights in the Event?

I had an opportunity to present to the group as Medtronic was a Major sponsor of the event. The theme of the seminar was around “ Quality” and my presentation really highlighted Tenet 3 of our mission:

“to strive without reserve for the greatest possible reliability and quality in our products; to be the unsurpassed standard of comparison and to be recognised as a company of dedication, honesty, integrity, and service”.

Discussion was also around how this is a major artery running through all facets of the business.

By this time next year, what matter relating to healthcare would you like to see solved and/or part of public conversation?

A shift in thinking about how do we help the private hospital arena look to delivering efficiencies to the patient and assist in becoming easier to deal with.
