– Between visits, you may start to consider planning an event that you help lead, to increase visibility of Nestlé’s presence in the nutrition market. Whether it is an event led by the Ministry of Health, or one led by Nestlé, you will get the opportunity to lead projects and events outside of your daily activities.
Look at the performance of competitors in pharmacies or other healthcare centers, and ensure that this information is shared with your colleagues
