It was wonderful to chat with Siemens USA CEO, Barbara Humpton, during the opening keynote session of IMTS Spark!
At IMTS Spark, Barbara spoke about “Building A Better Future With Innovation” and explored how the pandemic response is shaping a stronger manufacturing sector. It was a great to hear her views on the potential for manufacturing technology to improve resilience, provide exciting and fulfilling jobs, and expand what’s humanly possible.
Barbara will be joining me on the next episode of the Siemens Advanta podcast alongside Lisa Seacat DeLuca, the Director of Emerging Solutions at IBM and also the most prolific female inventor in IBM history! You can catch up on the previous episodes at this link.
