 Geoff Moodie, Senior Principal Scientist at Getinge Group, Board of Directors and VP of Programs at MDG Boston

MDG Boston has been a boost to my career in a number of ways.  It shows that I have a passion for my profession that goes beyond the office.  Connections with high quality organizations made at MDG have helped to increase my visibility at the executive-level in my company.  My continued awareness of new technologies and industry changes has helped to secure me a place on the innovation board.  The leadership experience that comes from being an MDG Boston volunteer has been invaluable for helping me to build skills that I bring back to the office.


Most importantly I have come to know a group of people who are not only dedicated professionals, but are sincerely interested in helping one another.  It is absolutely true that getting into and getting involved with MDG Boston opens doors that may not even have been visible at the beginning.
