102915 Makovsky (Long)

The Pharma Communications Leadership Roundtable Lunch is an intimate, invitation-only, informal group of senior communicators from the biopharma industry who meet over lunch to discuss the most relevant topics facing the industry. The event objectives are to provide an opportunity for participants to learn from each other and to provide a unique and valuable networking experience for all members.

The program is limited to only 40 biopharma industry Communications leaders and will take place at Catalyst in Cambridge. The event is organized by Business Development Institute and sponsored by Makovsky.

Our innovative 2-hour lunch format features a panel of industry thought leaders followed by an interactive Q&A session.

Our panel will cover questions such as:

  • What do you do as a pharmaceutical company to build and enhance the trust that an HCP has with you? Then how do you help the HCP translate that to their patient?
  • Industries such as CPG and now Pharma have come to the realization that their best advocates are their own employees. What tools or techniques are you seeing Pharmaceutical companies leverage to take advantage of this powerful advocacy vehicle?
  • In this environment of real-time communication and the expectation of corporate transparency, how do you as pharma communicators, remain time relevant in the conversation in a responsible and compliant fashion?
