Lone Bæk

Application Specialist
Bakery and Cereal Technolgy, Dupont  

I will tell you about how my background as a molecular biologist has served me in establishing a versatile and adaptive working life. Goals and mindset regarding work differ from person to person, and I hope my story can serve as a source of inspiration    

Niels Rüdiger

CEO for AH Diagnostics

In my presentation I will tell my story of using my background as a molecular biologist and how I moved from being a researcher via applied science in diagnostics to become the CEO of AH diagnostics. I will try to inspire those with interest in combining their biological knowledge with an exciting business career.

My aim is to show that being in the distribution business you are blessed with the requirement to be dealing with the front edge of new technologies and people here must be dedicated and appreciate that every day has its own challenge.
