Ping Bu Loke
SVP Engineering & Technology Rohde & Schwarz
Practicing the German language, exposure to Germany’s preferred technical communication style and direct immersion in the German culture has provided me with the necessary fundamentals to embark on a career path that eventually landed me back in Germany.
GEARE was a life changing experience for me that provided me with a variety of tools and skills that I have used throughout my life. GEARE is also a huge talking point with people and I love relaying my experience. The language skills I developed have also been a great asset and I still use them to this day.
GEARE provided me a jumpstart to my career by exposing me to cultural differences across different countries in the business world at a very early stage of my career. The intercultural experience I gained was key to my first job out of college as a Global Trainee at ZF Group. I also gained a lot of leadership skills when I was part of the GEARE Executive board.
