March 2019 Meeting
TOPIC: WHERE DO I START? THEN WHAT? OR, WHAT'S NEXT?
Whether you are the Brand Owner, Formulator or the Project Leader, Product Development, Marketing Director, Procurement, Supply Chain, Microbiologist, or Advertising Designer, the Conundrum is still the same:
Where do I start? How do I start? What do I start? How do I know if I finished?
Just like a good story, you have beginnings, middles, and ends. But, as any good book, movie, or dinner goes, there are those twists of fate, multiple characters, plots that thicken, and all those red herrings that lead you astray, and then there’s the sequels followed by the prequels…...
Working as a team augments closing the gap from point ‘a’ to ‘b’ and gets the product out the door to those consumers who need your product. It's a concert of action that creates and moves a product from concept to performance at the consumer, whether you're a 1-person company or a 15,000 R&D and Commercialization team.
Joseph Dallal got his start in his Mother’s Beauty Salon, teething on Perm Rods and Clippies, brushing plaster mannequins, cooking the clients under the drier, stocking shelves and taking out the trash. He started cooking for the family at 12 yrs. old and made/modified perms and shampoos at 17 yrs. old in our Salon Dispensary, with his dad’s scientific tutelage. After passing the Texas State Board exams and receiving his Cosmetology License, he worked his way through College with a double major in Anatomy & Physiology, then a B.Sc. in Chemistry with Honors, followed by a M.Sc. in Chemistry, with a thesis in Enzymatic Inhibition of Protein Synthesis by a Plant Extract.
