My ability to do medical literature research work, compose presentations and educate physicians got improved during my work experience at Project Farmaka. Physicians were very pleased with the quality of the presentations and after the visits/presentations, the company was a standard of which the physicians looked forward to, in order to get periodical new updates. During my experience in Quintiles (CRO), and due to the fact that I am a physician, I collected a lot of new contacts with physicians/hospitals/medical centra for the company, speed up the contracting time, and also performed on occasion feasibility studies which included KOL contacts. My past experience with improvement projects and feedback systems, with as result improved customer service ratings and higher efficiency, could be a positive asset to your company. In customer service, I received a golden falcon reward to go above and beyond customer satisfaction and to improve customer satisfaction ratings from 63% to 96% in less than a year. Since then, I am always looking for improvements and analysing data, even when it is not the core subject of my activity. Leading teams, as proven in the past, poses no problems to me. It does not matter if it is a group of customer service people, a group of auditors, professionals or blue collar, I have done it all. Teambuilding and trust lays on the foundation of this success, as well as shared ownership of ideas. My independent work drive, which is result driven, has proven to be an advantage to complete projects on time. Time pressure is not experienced as something negative, but rather as an extra motivator. It would be an honour to me to be able to be a positive asset to your company. If you have any additional questions, please feel free to contact me, and I will try to answer you as prompt and as accurate as possible.
