Key Pharma Project Examples:

Worked with Compliance teams at four different healthcare and distributor companies in China and Hong Kong. Diagnosed and address key performance gaps in their leadership, management and systems/processes approaches to Compliance. Guided and supported the Compliance teams to redefine their roles and
re-engage their company's leadership teams inside of their newly defined roles and responsibilities.

Achieved breakthrough 90 day micro-strategy targets across three different projects at a healthcare distribution company. Achieved aggressive targets to accelerate conversion of paper to electronic order taking. Reduced contract processing time by up to 40% with new partners and vendors by mapping the decision-making process and eliminating the bottlenecks. Achieved transformation of the management team into a fully accountable leadership team no longer willing to rely on the managing director to set the agenda and tell them what to do.
