Fearless Speaker Series: Greg Flyte from GSK

By Soumya Mitra

On April 4, 2019, Greg Flyte from GSK (GlaxoSmithKline) was the Fearless Speaker in the Shady Grove campus. Greg has been working in the profession of bio-pharmaceuticals for over 20 years. His rise to the director level took place via gradual career progression. He picked up hard projects that no one else would like to pursue. He toiled and grinded out those projects to meet the timelines. He got noticed by senior management as someone who is a doer, reliable, and trustworthy. 

Greg would get the job done no matter how difficult it might be.  He is a resolute individual, capable of learning on the fly and figuring out his path, not afraid of learning from juniors in his new departmental roles. He is one who epitomized the old belief that hard work eventually gets rewarded. He is an embodiment of patience, perseverance, tenacity and mental toughness that sums up his formula for success.
