When I left Brunel…
I was employed by British airways when I enrolled into PhD program. At mid point of my study, I changed the organisation to IAG Cargo – a logistic company. I am currently working as a Continuous Improvement Manager.

I am working in the same field and using my knowledge and research experience in the current role. I am also coaching and mentoring small group of 4 people to share and expand my knowledge.

How my career goals have changed…
My career goal changed slightly as I’m now seen as an expert in my field and have a lot more opportunities to mentor and coach.

How I have developed professionally since graduating…
I have created an app which is framework driven approach for business improvement. I have held some seminars to promote my app and also published some articles on LinkedIn.

How I have developed personally…
I regularly read articles in Lean and access academic journals in a library.

My advice to recent graduates/students graduating soon…
Don’t give up – education is a self-investment with high returns, financially and professionally. Confidence grows to another level.
