'What does success look like for growing life sciences companies; is it aligned with what industry needs?’

During this round-table discussion our speakers will share their thoughts on the key areas that company leaders need to get right in order to achieve success - above and beyond excellent science. This includes an evolving strategy, deliverable targets, establishing a safe and inclusive environment, engaging in mutually beneficially collaborations that can transform R&D, being open to and adopting new technologies and complying with new standards and regulations.  


After introductory keynotes, we will invite guests to contribute to a round-table discussion on whether a company's expectation of success meets that of the industry.
