Sandy Lindsey, National Implementation Lead Manager, Vaccines, MSD, joint winner of the Account Project Pf Award 2018, on how her role is really all about the people.
“I NEVER GET BORED AND THERE ARE ALWAYS NEW CHALLENGES!”
… E V E RY DAY I S V E RY DI F F E R E N T , from helping shape our future strategies, engaging with our key stakeholders, meeting with my team and everything in between. This is why I do this job, as I never get bored and there are always new challenges! I’m pretty sure there is no job with a typical day, and if there is keep it away from me!
… I T ’ S A L L A B OU T T H E PE OPL E . …IT H AS TO BE S OM E T H I NG I B E L I E V E I N, T H AT MO T I VAT E S M E A N D I A L S O E NJOY, O T H E RW I SE W H Y D O I T ? Working within a franchise that focuses on prevention of diseases and public health through our vaccines (in the UK alone, last year we reached over two million people through our vaccines) and the provision of women’s health products, our goal is to help shape population health in the UK and to support the NHS to help every child, woman and man to have a healthier future. This is achieved through a variety of programmes and initiatives that helps ensure that those that are eligible to receive a vaccine can make an informed choice on vaccinations. In this respect we are truly ‘Inventing for Life’.
Not only about the people I work with (who are awesome) but all of the people, the UK population.
… I T ’ S I M P OR TA N T T O M E T O D O W H AT I D O. My job is about population health, and it’s my job to make sure that prevention is as important as treatment when it comes to healthcare – as they say prevention is better than cure, it really is.
… I F E E L E X T R E M E LY PROU D T O H AV E WON T H E AC COU N T PROJ E C T AWA R D AT PF AWA R D S 2 018 . I’m especially proud of my team member Priyanka Trehan, who was central to the success of the work presented as part of the Pf Awards. We definitely had smiles on our faces.
