Adding your voice to the transformation

Eve works in our Next Generation Products (NGP) business as a New Product Introduction Project Manager for tobacco heating products. She launches new product features in different markets, facilitating a new future for our industry on a global scale. It’s just one of the ways we bring Transforming Tobacco to life, an ambition that’s setting the pace across our business. But it especially influences the way Eve works with her team: “We have a great track record in how Next Generation Products are going to be delivered. It’s all about optimising the current business model. Within that I think the shifts in mindset and in the processes we have are key. From what I've seen in the NGP platform, we really have to embrace change. It's very challenging to deliver your day-to-day work, while at the same time integrate a new way of working.”

However, Eve has never been one to shy away from a challenge and she’s an influential figure among her colleagues: “My best moment here would be when I moved from BAT Vietnam to the UK. It wasn't an international assignment, I told my manager and applied for the job. It was the first time that someone from BAT Vietnam – in the operations function – had made that move. It had a big positive impact on my colleagues in Vietnam – showing them that if the opportunity is not offered, then you need to actively seek it out. My colleagues and managers in Vietnam were very supportive in helping me to achieve that. Now, other people have followed my lead. They’re seeking opportunities and making it happen on their own.”
