I had the pleasure of meeting Tom Weaver, CEO of Congenica, a few months ago at the Innovation Forum conference. He kindly spared a few minutes to sit with me and answer some questions I had on my career choices. I would like to share some of his general advice:
1. If you have the choice between two equal situations, always choose the more challenging one.
2. Do what makes you happy.
3. Believe in yourself, be tenacious and don't bullsh*t.
4. Ensure rigour in your research.
5. Surround yourself with people smarter than you.
Thank you, Tom!
