Tal, a father of two high-energy boys, and a trained Alfred Hospital physician, believes in an interconnected healthcare future, where knowledge is accessible everywhere, where consumers are truly centric to health, where data is algorithmically analysed for actionable insights, where patients are treated bespokely as people, and where health innovations focus on the triple aim – better health outcomes, healthcare efficiencies, and improved customer experience of health.
Tal has spent the last seven years in at Sanofi, a diversified French multinational healthcare company. He has moved through various pharmaceutical medico-marketing and management roles, including a recent role as the company’s Medical Director. He most recently set-up and led the Innovation Business Unit, a product-agnostic HealthCare Division of Sanofi, as Innovation Director and member of the company’s executive team.
Tal began his varied health career as a medical doctor at the Alfred Hospital, in rural Kenya, and in indigenous communities in far north Queensland. Subsequently, Tal spent five years in the US working in health innovation – helping to grow the largest web-based health information library, developing new concepts in marketing, education and e-strategy, and working as a strategic consultant across healthcare.
Tal’s creativity, passion, energy, and entrepreneurship, combined with his strategic thinking, delivery-focus, and his extensive training and experience in various medical specialties and management consulting, continue to support his evolving impact in health.
