At the beginning of November, the same month of GE Research Center(GRC)’s opening in Brazil, a special event for ECLP family happened in Rio de Janeiro-the Latin America ECLP alumni event. This event was organized by Guilherme Delaroli, an ECLP Alumni who is Commercial Strategy Manager in GE Healthcare LATAM, and had both presence of past and current ECLP program members.
During the event, we had the opportunity get together and discuss market strategies, trends and Career Evolution with GE leadership. Reinaldo Garcia and Raghu Krishnamoorthy shared their amazing experiences and expectations for the organization future. Ken Herd shared his GRC vision and future lines of research.
One of the highlights was the career panel, where we had the business leaders Jean-Claude Robert (Power & Water), Rodrigo Martins (Lighting), Serge Giacomo (GE Global Operations) and Heather Giese, sharing their amazing professional experiences. We also had the privilege to host the executives from three most important companies for Brazilian market – Vale, Petrobras, & Dasa. From a customer perspective, we learned that “be efficient, deliver on time all time, understand customer needs, focus on services” are key messages which we must keep in mind.
