Every year, Medtronic has a company-wide holiday celebration with food, music, and a program where people that have used our products come and speak to remind us why we do what we do.
I was a very last-minute addition to the orchestra, but I'm glad I could be there to round out the orchestra! The Hallelujah Chorus just isn't the same without a French horn player.
With 9000 employees in the Twin Cities, about 3000 were on the main campus for the day's program. It was such a cool event, to hear from patients that use our diabetes pumps, our clot removal therapies, our laser scalpels. Chances are, you know someone who has used at Medtronic product at some point in their life, and knowing that makes you want to work a little bit harder.
