Embracing Vulnerability And Leading With Courage With Alex Schacht, Exec VP Of Data Science
Show Notes

Today’s interview is with Executive VP of Launch Commercialisation Data Science @ Veramed, Alex Schacht who has an awesome career story to share.

Alex has had an awesome career spanning 20+ years; working with Organisations to develop and launch new medicines across a wide-range of disease areas, positively impacting patients across the globe.  Plus so much more… 

His track record is impressive, however, it is his approach to work and leadership, and the way he sees the world that really grabs me.   We hit it off straight away, sharing many of the same values; creativity, trust and courage

This is a fun chat where we talk about navigating fear, opening ourselves up to vulnerability and making courageous decisions… oh and Beyonce gets a mention too!  

A few teasers…

  • Leading without the job title; how to influence cross-functional teams
  • How he overcame the fear of public speaking
  • How to build manage a virtual team
  • Creative thinking in an analytical discipline
  • Being comfortable with not being the expert as a leader
  • The power of storytelling; the stories we tell others… and ourselves!
  • Why you need to be conscious about how you start your day


This is a gem of an episode, jam-packed with insights and tips for everyone.

ENJOY!
