I've started listening to Project Medtech to better educate myself about the medical device business and have found the podcast to be both informative and inspiring. The business information is more specific to the field, which is helpful to a newcomer, and the advice is broadly applicable, which is helpful to people like me who have different jobs in different fields. I just listened to episode 13 with Dr. Brandi Baldwin and was inspired by her insight about thinking and acting like a CEO. Highly recommend!
