WIHC September Guest Speaker

Posted 2014/08/25 in

Hi All,

I’m really looking forward to our September meeting!

Date: Thursday, September 4, 2014
Time: 7:00pm – 9:30pm
Topic: Taking Risks
Guest Speaker: Anny Bedard
Location: TBA

Anny will share some of the risks she chose to take along her career and how these were instrumental in creating new growth and leadership opportunities for her. She will also share perspectives and key learnings about developing in the leader you want to be and making the impact you want to make in a male dominated pharma environment.

For those of you who don’t know Anny, she was most recently, Vice President and General Manager of Asia Pacific for Shire where

she championed the expansion of the company’s Rare Disease franchise in this region. She is recognized for building a $100 million business from a zero-base revenue and reshaped the company’s growth strategy. By creating and managing high performing teams and establishing strategic alliances, she significantly impacted revenue growth and generated important market knowledge for the organization. She is also credited with the leadership in building Shire’s Rare Disease business in Latin America, mainly in Brazil and Mexico.

I have also attached her bio to this email and you can also visit her LinkedIn profile at the link below:


I’m so excited about Anny coming and sharing her experience with us and leading an interactive discussion.

I will book a meeting space when I know how many people plan to attend so please RSVP early so I can make sure that I book a big enough space. I will also be asking them to provide food and drinks so having an accurate head count is imperative. Fee will depend on where we book. As usual the fee will only be to cover the actual cost of food and drinks.

If you have any questions please feel free to mail me. Also, if you would like to invite someone outside the network please let me know.

I will be sending out more detailed about the meeting location at the end of next week.

Best regards,
