I love being appreciated and listened to. I prefer teamwork. Different team members contribute different perspectives, and the synergy between team members can produce creative and productive results.

What advice would you give to a young graduate starting at Henkel?

My advice is to work with Henkel R&D. It turns ideas into products – actual new products. And it also improves the knowledge of scientific theory. This turns into further innovation and discovery as the knowledge increases. The part that you innovate is development. It's exciting because this is where the answers are discovered and implanted with additional focus on its people and their own development.
