What is the best way to stay connected to the issues that affect your clients?

Although LinkedIn and Twitter can be useful, I think the best way is still to meet with my clients and ask them what is going on in their businesses.

What was the most interesting cross-border, cross-discipline project that you were involved in?

Fighting against Chinese imitation products for a medical device client in eight different countries. It was great to see how well the CMS team worked together, and sharing our knowledge helped us to get the imitation products off the market fast.

FaceTime or face-to-face?

Although technology is a big part of my practice, I have to go for face-to-face here. FaceTime is great to stay in touch but it is no substitute for sitting down with someone and having a chat.
