"lf I look at the topics that I discuss with my colleagues today and I compare them to what we discussed five years ago, they are completely different The market that we operate in is so rapidly changing, and the business processes that our customers experience are so challenged by the influences of ecommerce trends. Working for Descartes, we have a very broad solution suite and we have a lot of solutions where we can help our customers in facing those challenges and become successful. lt's a continuous journey of learning new stuff, which is really awesome, actually."
