2022 Testimonials

""This conference attracted a great set of attendees from companies and from vendors-- the best that I have ever attended. As such, it was a great opportunity to learn from others and to catch up on broad trends. My perspective shifted from being focused 1-3 years out to really thinking about the longer term, and how to get my company from where we are today to where we need to be in the long term."
-Biopharma Portfolio Manager, 2022 Attendee

“I think the event was really valuable and it was great to make some connections across the industry. I loved the casual/friendly vibe of the conference and openness of the conversations between peers.”
-Brigitte Healion, Associate Director Solutions Designer, Janssen Pharmaceuticals (Johnson & Johnson)

“The Resource Management community within pharma is such a small group of people that it is always wonderful when we can get together, learn, share, and return to our companies energized. No one in our respective organizations knows as much about our discipline as these peers, so this time sharing best practices is beyond valuable.  I’ve attended this conference at least five times over the past ten years and have always come away with great nuggets to help me sharpen the saw in my role.”
-Michael Ferrante, GRACS Business Analytics, Merck

“The meeting was great and had a really good blend of brief talks broken up with panel discussions – in the room and in the breakout room that really allowed for more sharing of issues and best practices.  The meeting enrolled a number of really top experts in their field – we heard growth stories and stories of retraction/refocusing which is the ultimate reality for companies in our business.   Overall, I found it to be a great forum for benchmarking.”
-Michael Myers, Associate Vice President, Eli Lilly & Co
