Amélie David - Participant 2021-2022

“The multicultural interactions have strengthened my ability to adjust to new environments.”


Amélie was both responsible for the global process improvement project across IBA’s entities worldwide, and for the supply chain optimization analysis in the Asian region.


Amélie implemented internal processes and communication tools to ease the business flow among IBA entities, facilitating contacts between offices in various Asian countries. She had to identify synergies and share best practices among the regions. In addition, she was also in charge of reviewing, analyzing, and improving the entire supply chain process, defining the best target operating model.

How she benefited

On a professional level, Amélie was able to make a radical shift in her career. She is now confident that she can engage in complex commercial negotiations and assume team management responsibilities. “I learned a lot through my Prince Albert Fund project. It was my first business experience. Ultimately, I was able to deliver tangible and concrete results. I gained confidence in my business skills and was able to work independently and autonomously”, she explains.

The company – IBA

Based in Belgium, IBA is the world leader in the design and production of innovative solutions for the diagnosis and treatment of cancer and other serious illnesses.

Around the world, thousands of hospitals use particle accelerators that are designed, produced and maintained by IBA. Through its four core activities, i.e., Industrial Solutions, Radiopharmacy Solutions, Proton therapy and Dosimetry, the company offers health care professionals solutions that allow them to take a fully integrated approach to their patients’ care.

Amélie showed great initiative. She was able to connect with both the Asian stakeholders as well as with the key people in HQ. She actively initiated improvement projects and delivered concrete results, despite the topic being highly complex and new to her.
