The end is near…

Megan kicked off one of her last days in Europe with a short train ride from Basel to Luzern this morning. She was traveling back to the city to follow up with the HR manager at Merck. If you remember, the last time Megan traveled to Luzern and Merck she went in the wrong direction and had to backtrack to make it to the city for her meetings. The reason Megan traveled back to Luzern today is because the hiring […]

On to Lucerne!

At 7am on Tuesday, Megan embarked on what should’ve been a quick hour and fifteen-minute train ride to Lucerne. About an hour into the ride Megan noticed she was not going in the right direction. She quickly disembarked and rushed back in the direction of Lucerne. In the end she made it to Lucerne at 12pm and proceeded to have a fabulously successful meeting with HR at Merck’s Swiss headquarters. After her meeting Megan spent some time sightseeing. She snapped […]

Munich and back to Basel and the HEAT!!

The meetings in Munich went well for Megan. She visited the Sandoz corporate offices and visited The Medicines Company. While she met with HR and hiring managers the children and Eric visited the Munich Zoo. Thankfully, in spite of the heat the Germans were super nice and incredibly helpful. While in Munich, Megan and her family stayed at the Munich City Hilton. The hotel was delightfully accommodating and a cool change to the roasting air conditioner-less apartment in Basel. On […]

Churros and Technical Difficulties

In life there are sweet moments and there are not so sweet moments; in the last two days Megan has had one of each. Monday for the most part was a day off for Megan. Other than preparing for her meetings she didn’t have a lot of Pharmalogics business on her plate so she took the time to intellectually enlighten Maddy and Bailey at some of Spain’s most precious spaces. They visited the Reina Sofia Museaum of Modern Art, Retiro […]

TGIF

How Megan manages to lead business development efforts in Europe, plan daily activities for her family and actively go out to meetings at some of the world’s largest pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies I may never know. One thing I know for sure is she must be a little insane or just insanely driven. Regardless, on Friday Pharmalogics Executive Recruiter/BD Manager Trevor, finally met up with Megan in Paris. Trevor’s in Paris on vacation visiting his girlfriend Camille who lives in […]

Paris!!

On Thursday Megan Driscoll and family arrived in Paris. Getting there didn’t go quite as smoothly as expected. En route to Paris Megan had her i-phone stolen right out of her bag! Thank goodness for Pharmalogics office manager, Heather, a new phone is on its way. Other than that mishap Paris has been good to Megan and crew. Upon arrival the bunch grabbed a late lunch and followed it up with a fantastic walk along the Seine. (From the pictures […]

The Adventure Continues

On Wednesday Megan left Basel for Zurich to meet with global staffing leads at Baxter. To get to Zurich Megan traveled by train. In Europe trains are incredibly affordable and efficient. To travel between Basel and Zurich Megan said it took about 1 hour. She equated it to traveling between the South Shore of Massachusetts to Cambridge. (What a funny analogy to think of!) From the train station Megan hailed a cab bound for Baxter. Her ride out to their […]
