Mick Farrell, LGO '98, offers an “inside view” into how ResMed pivoted its global business to help lead the global response to combat its deadliest pandemic in 100 years.
To deliver a record 150,000-plus life-saving high-quality hospital-to-home ventilators worldwide in the first half of 2020, a million small and big hurdles had to be overcome. From manufacturing and distribution challenges, to ethical allocation of products concerns, to cash flow and government relationship management, Mick shares the three-pronged approach his company adopted to ensure immediate and effective roll-out in the midst of an unprecedented turmoil.
