What's been your biggest highlight
Winning a Barclays Entrepreneur of the Year Award this year was pretty big! Aside from that, every time we hear from one of our customers to tell us about how we have helped to change their life... that is why we come into the office everyday!
What's been your biggest challenge?
If innovating and brining new technologies to market wasn't challenging enough, innovating a new business model at the same time has had its challenges! Like any medical device business, pre-launch resource management can be challenging. I am incredibly proud of what the team achieve every day, and I look forward to being able to better equip them with the resources they need in the future.
