I went into a role that allowed me to apply much of what I learned in the ESTEEM program. ESTEEM enabled me to understand what my clients in the pharmaceutical and biotech industry need to know about their competitive and regulatory landscapes and how best to be positioned for the future. The program also helped round out my skills in team and project management, leadership and effective communication. As I've grown with the company, which in many ways operates like a start-up, I've been at times able to see how ESTEEM prepared me for the strategic decision making that can make a company successful.
