A Change in Perspective: My Amoena World View


Amoena Germany

It's early spring at Amoena Germany. The daffodils and bright yellow awnings, cheerfully greeted me on my visit.

Last week, I had the pleasure of visiting the Amoena corporate headquarters in Germany. About 40 minutes south east of Munich, in a little village called Raubling, you can find the quaint corporate office bordered by farmland and the majestic Alps.

In my almost 15 year tenure at Amoena, I had not yet visited our Raubling office and had not met, face-to-face, many of the people that I communicate with on a weekly (and sometimes daily) basis. As I walked around the building, I was greeted by familiar voices (and some familiar faces, thanks to Skype!) and at some point, I felt like I was very much at home there – not a foreigner or a visitor, but a returning family member.

I was there to attend a workshop – a “computer-banned, sit around in a half-circle” kind of workshop. We were expected to put on our “global hats”, open our minds, put ourselves in each other’s shoes, discuss ideas…and compromise. My global colleagues represented Canada, Poland, France, Germany and Great Britain – it was a dynamic group that, in the end, would emerge as one team.

During my two day workshop, I discovered something: Amoena is a global company, with offices all over the world, and even though we may live in different places, speak different languages and are a product of our different cultures, we all serve the same woman – the breast cancer survivor who deserves to live her life to the fullest and with the utmost dignity.

Breast cancer is not just a disease affecting women in the United States…or Canada…or England, but it’s a disease that affects women from every nation. We understand that, and we are passionate about being a true companion to women after breast cancer surgery, regardless of where in the world they may be.
