Head of Public Affairs - Boston Scientific
Having gone from zero knowledge on this topic 18 months ago, and working in the medical device industry, Michelle is ideally placed to talk you through the ‘why’, ‘what’ and ‘how’ to look through the lens of sustainability at the world of healthcare and you as suppliers to it. You don’t need to be an expert, you just need to understand the ‘principles’ and she will help you to understand this!
Michelle has had a diverse career in pharmaceutical and medical devices, first working in the industry in 1990.
As a lateral thinker and strategist, her employers such as Covidien/Medtronic, and Boston Scientific, have often created roles to capitalise on her knowledge and skills, helping them to respond to the prevailing market conditions.
A graduate biologist with a long-standing career in sales, management, marketing, and market development, Michelle chose to re-train in Health Economics at York University, adding the value of ‘spectacles’ and ‘hearing aids’ she employs today when working with the business leaders of her current employer, their customers (the NHS), and various industry bodies.
Her current in-depth understanding of COVID and its implications has led to a dedicated following on Linked-in, and a focus on how we can best work and show unique value in the new ‘COVID-WORLD’ that is upon us.
She currently lives in Brighton, with her daughter Amber, who has recently become a total clean freak, and her dog Saffy, who has not.
