Scientific Leadership Speaker

Scientific Leadership Speaker

There are a lot of people who talk about leadership, and even more who talk about science, but what about the two together?

I’m your speaker for a technical or scientific audience who is hungry to understand how the non-academic world of careers works.

This is a chance to bring them an engaging experienced speaker who knows what it’s like to come from a science background and shares their wisdom and advice from a successful career in a candid, humorous way.

Introducing your next speaker, Rachel Kindt

After a Biology PhD and postdoctoral fellowship, I dove headfirst into the biotech world, working my way from the lab bench to the corporate boardroom in her 20+ year career.

Today, my mission is to be a guide for people and organizations aspiring to be their best selves, with a focus on science trained professionals and biopharma organizations.
