I loved showing customers operations when I became Director of Quality for the region and later for the global division, especially the manufacturing process. It’s a bit like cooking – you have a set of ingredients, and you can get different results depending on what you do with them. I get really excited by the process, being able to see how raw material in a powder form becomes a high-performance plastic film.
That job involved looking after quality in our plants across the globe, and the travel was great. I learnt so much about different cultures, met so many colleagues and got to know how kp’s business works all over the world. Discovering the best practices at each site and connecting people to share those practices was a crucial part of the job, and still is – it’s the network building that I do so much of today.
I’ve had the chance to expand my personal networks over the last 12 months as a result of doing a Masters of Business Administration. I wanted to broaden my skills, and kp supported me to have the experience I wanted by offering to put me through my degree.
