I wanted to be an engineer, but I had no idea of what it meant.
Arts et Métiers, a generalist engineering school in France; because I wanted to work on complex systems and to be able to improve them.
I had so many industrial and technical fields of interest that I couldn’t choose only one. So I choose a job allowing me to easily jump from a field to another.
Actually, I didn’t choose it. I switched from an Oil&Gas project to a Pharmaceuticals one and I liked it.
I have severals. All about purification lines (chromatographic columns, nanofiltration, ultrafiltration, dilution, mixing…). But some deal with production capacity increase, others deal with cost reduction, others with maintenance or replacement of aging system…
I improve the way companies produce drugs, so that more patients can be cured.
Talk to people, get to know them. That’s the best way to be good in your job.
I definitely like my job. So I guess I’ll keep managing projects. But maybe bigger ones.
By always proposing me exciting missions, and new challenges.
Google. Beside the bigbrother side, it’s has clearly improved our way to get knowledge, it gave us a power we had never imagined before.
I’m deeply convinced that the innovation we need the most now is not about technology but about communication and behaviour. So I guess the future exciting innovative product I would love to be a part of is simply a society where moral values prevail over power and money. That would definitely be an innovation.
Getting people to work together to achieve great things, that’s my job, that’s my passion.
I discovered with my son that I’m very good at imitating animals. But I will NOT make a demonstration.
I think we’ve finished here, so now, how about a good Belgian beer ?
