”The best things in my job are the independent and engaging work environment, doing things together, and sparring ideas with colleagues. It's rewarding to be able to serve customers all the way through the IPR process towards success. I'm inspired by new projects and always eager to take things forward. The constant change in the communications landscape makes this an interesting and challenging job, and communicating effectively with clients as well as with our own team is a topic that is very close to my heart."
