Inspiring people

At its core, our work at Bosch has always been about inspiring people. Our innovations and technologies make new things possible every day. They show that there’s no limit to what human beings can achieve when they put their heart into it. At the same time, this work would not be possible without bold dreamers, ambitious inventors and ingenious enthusiasts — people who were inspired to do the extraordinary and in the process became an inspiration to others.

In this series, we celebrate some exceptional makers and doers from the Bosch community. Learn their personal stories, find out what drives them — and get inspired to follow your own dreams.

Brian Tan — Craftsman for love

Brian Tan’s life completely changed when his daughter was born with Down syndrome. She became an inspiration to him. When he couldn’t find suitable toys for her in the Philippines, he decided to build them himself.

Craftsman Brian Tan, his wife and daughter are lying under a wooden structure. They are laughing and reading a children's book.

My daughter started all of this. Because of her special needs, we came up with building things for her development.
