Switzerland & Italy

There was no rain on day 19 of our quest to discover the Future of Healthcare, which meant the team could walk about and explore Zürich today before they had to hit the road, so they went on foot to their meeting with Oriol Saludes, COO and Co-Founder of Kemiex. It also meant that their stop in Basel, Switzerland, didn’t have them dodging for cover in between showers, and could happily meet outside with Brian Peasley, the Senior Director at IPS-Integrated Project Services, LLC, at the Münsterplatz, the cathedral square located in the center of the city.

 

Although it was a busy day of travel, with three cities and two interviews to cover, the team still managed to add some fun into the day, enjoying the good weather, and finding two different lakes in Switzerland to photograph! They ended the day in Milan, Italy, with 300 miles traveled and 6 hours 49 minutes in the cars.
