Adam Kramer, the 82nd person I’ve met on my quest to have lunch with 500 strangers, made it there.

New York, that is.

Adam grew up in Johannesburg, moved to New York two decades ago, met a girl from Australia … and relocated to Melbourne in March. 

Adam’s first job in New York was as a waiter, but he then built an impressive career in healthcare, working in sales, marketing and operations. 

In a nice twist, Adam is about to begin an exciting new role with an Aussie health company that wants to crack the American market – meaning all his old contacts are about to come in handy.

This company has developed a technology that allows you to do a quick swab test and discover if you’re genetically predisposed to breast, colon and prostate cancers and many other diseases. In Adam’s new role he will be spearheading the launch, promotion and distribution of this lifesaving technology to healthcare providers and consumers.

Adam is a people person, so he’s frustrated COVID is preventing him from getting out and meeting new people. Zoom lunches are fun, but not as good as actual lunches. When the crisis is over, and Adam is next in Sydney, we’ll be catching up for real.
