” Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has”
This is the quote that stayed with me all through my first meeting with my new colleagues at Veeva Systems. I am interrupting my series on Influence to update you all on a little personal information. Well, I finally left Lilly last week, my last day in the office was last Wednesday and I am now a fully fledged consultant at least in job title. So my life began as a consultant with a trip to Barcelona (my new employers European HQ).
New office, new people, new lease of life
The office is just setting up but the whole experience, the people, the location and architecture make me think this place is going to be special. And I have a part to play in this special organization. Put simply they are a bunch of very smart people who are completely focussed on one goal and are willing to work many late nights to make Veeva super successful and out hustle its competition (how could you not love that perspective). I know now for sure! I have made the right decision in moving from Eli Lilly to Veeva. So cant wait to get started… Watch this space…
