Michelle Seoane Hello Fellow NAPW Fairfax County Chapter members. One of the hardest things for me to do is talk about myself and explain exactly what I do because I do so many things. I've lived in Fairfax County all my life; the house my family has been in for 50+ years is walking distance to my home. You all seem to be a bit computer savvy, so I feel you are familiar with working remotely, and actually I've been doing it for longer than many of you even knew it existed. I became a Virtual Assistant when people would just say "what is that?" Well, I have grown with the times. I am not only a Virtual Assistant aka Personal Assistant, but I am also a Daily Money Manager aka Professional Bill Payer, a Bookkeeper (depends on if you are a commercial or residential client). If you go to my website www.TotallyforSeniors.com you will see many of the ways I help our seniors today. My clients are the seniors, but my clients are also their children and friends from anywhere in the US that are concerned about them and want to help but can't because for whatever reason. As for small businesses, I've been working as a Bookkeeper for over 12 years with small businesses and you can learn more about that part of my business at www.BookkeepingandAdmin.com. So, give me a call, near or far, I can be of assistance and make your life a lot easier and more comfortable. michelle@totallyforseniors.com, 703-403-2996

    Kelly Le Good Morning Ladies! "In this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes"-Ben Franklin Even though Franklin had it right, tax free investments are out there, and you don't have to be a member of Wall Street Elite to access them. In fact, they should be part of your investing strategy, because at the end of the day, tools like tax-advantaged investments are one of the few things you can directly control. It's pretty hard to avoid paying taxes on your paycheck. But there are all kinds of way to pick up money that the Internal Revenue Service can't touch. Come and join me on the financial Seminar this Saturday 4/30 at 5:45Pm at Tyson Corner address 8229 boone blv suite 638, Vienna VA 22182. Learn the investments strategy you need to create wealth, protect assets and minimize taxes. Please email me Kelly.le.pfa@gmail.com or text 240-274-7139 me if you're interested in coming so I can keep head counts. As of now we are expecting around 100 people. Best, Kelly

    Career Opportunities

    Director, Early Commercial Strategy
    Details: • GSK is committed to discovering, developing and marketing products of value which must meet important unmet needs as well as allowing GSK to make a sufficiently attractive commercial return. There are a large number of new product opportunities in Vaccines with the potential to substantially increase GSK Vaccines sales in the medium to long term, many of which are for diseases where no vaccine currently exists and where we have little knowledge of the market opportunity. • The team under the leadership of the Global Director Early Commercial Strategy  & Portfolio Management is responsible for ensuring GSK has a clear understanding of the unmet need through an analysis of existing or projected disease burden, what are current and future best standard of care, and customer insight. This happens in collaboration with R&D Teams. • The ECS Director insures that commercially valuable products that address the unmet needs of customers are developed by providing commercial assessments of R&D infectious disease prophylactic & therapeutic vaccine assets & technology up to C2P3 (commit to phase III) and providing commercial input into the development of coherent product strategies enabling optimal milestone decision-making. This should contribute to development of the Commercial Strategy for early vaccines (either included in GSK Vaccines pipeline, or in potential partners’ pipeline) which takes a holistic view of the market trends, competition, value proposition and evidence required to support claims which demonstrate the value of the Vaccine to payers and Healthcare Providers (HCP). • A Target Product Profile (TPP) is required for all key assets which must contain the salient information needed on which to base key development, prioritization and commercialization decisions. Whilst the Value Strategy team within Value Evidence team (formerly Disease Mapping and Vaccines of the Future - DMVF) in R&D is responsible for the TPP, the Commercial Director ECS, under the leadership of the Head, Early Commercial Strategy & Portfolio Management, is responsible for Commercial strategy and Commercial input to the TPP, and should play a major role in the development of the Business strategy of the project. • In order to make adequate returns, vaccines will need to have impact and be launched in the major worldwide markets, and in particular US and major European and Emerging markets; the perspective and expertise of the Global Director Early Commercial Strategy will need to take a global view of opportunities; this will be achieved by consolidation of the Regional perspectives from the local BU Directors and working closely with Strategic Pricing and Health Economics in the Value Evidence team (R&D).

This should include how & why the product fits into the GSK portfolio and strategy. (This could include recommending termination or disposal of the product). • Review the competitive landscape and identify business opportunities, threats, business development and research opportunities to strengthen GSK portfolio growth as needed. • Relationships with the specialist functions need to be well managed to ensure that diverse viewpoints are understood and respected whilst reaching a clear and objective view of an asset’s potential commercial value. Develop networks with relevant Regional/Local staff where appropriate to ensure alignment of viewpoints and as a source of insight   Basic Qualifications: Bachelor's degree and 5 years of  sales and marketing experience (in commercial strategy, product launches and life-cycle management)   Preferred Qualifications: • Advanced degree • Significant commercial strategy experience and track record in country (preferably US if based in US) or in an above country role • Ability to assimilate scientific and technical information and establish credibility with medical, manufacturing, business development and commercial groups involved. • Deep commercial experience with product launches and life-cycle management. • Excellent leadership, networking, diplomacy and influencing skills. • Strong strategic, analytical and entrepreneurial capabilities and experience. • Performance driven with ability to focus on and deliver results.
