Ayşegül Özkavukçu – Migros Ticaret A.Ş Head of Migros Up / Ferit Cansever – Migros Ticaret A.Ş Business Development and Innovation Director

Our personal and social values, the values of our team and the values of our corporation make us who we are. When this bundle of values cooperate seamlessly like the parts of a watch, they create durable and sustainable role-model structures, which won’t stop for many years. That’s why we determined innovation as one of our prior values. Innovation is a challenge in its essence; it’s a result of teams who refuse the status quo and have courage to embrace future from now. Although such teams start their innovation journey with a clear target, the road they take is full of uncertainties. Let’s dream of a very rough road covered with dust clouds. To foresee what lies ahead and reach the end of the road is only possible by parting the dust clouds. Only a well-equipped team can deal with this level of uncertainty. A multidisciplinary team, which fosters different perspectives and not composed by members, who are not only technically competent but also demonstrate their individual desires to overcome problems, can reach the end of the road.

Md. Ayşegül Karahan Zor / Cardiologist at Anadolu Medical Center

Just like every other young student who starts his/her studies at the school of medicine, my childhood dream was to become a physician. Helping others, treating diseases, soothing people’s pain and seeing the joy in their eyes when they recover. This was my biggest goal in life. When I became a physician, I understood that while the essence of our profession is to offer psychological and physical healing to our patients in line with the principles of science, the real talent is to do this in a way that respects human dignity, with love and affection, to attentively listen to our patients at their most vulnerable, to try and understand them and to never hurt them while we heal them. That is why it is often said that being a physician is not just about science, but also an art of communication and perhaps even a calling, a way of life that sees one dedicate their entire life to patients and to humanity at large.
