The 2015 ASAP BioPharma Conference is once again shaping up to be the pivotal event of the year for partnering executives in health and life sciences. ASAP has issued its call for presenters and presentations for the event, which will be held Sept. 9-11, 2015 at The Revere Hotel Boston Common, and for the March 1-4, 2016 ASAP Global Alliance Summit in National Harbor Maryland.
In describing the focus of this year’s biopharma event, ASAP’s programs committee emphasized that the biopharma alliance executive’s job is more challenging than ever. “We lead increasingly complex and diverse collaborations spanning industries and sectors. As our industries relentlessly evolve and interconnect, success or failure—in a global ecosystem of pharma leaders, biotech innovators, service organizations, providers, agencies, academia, patient advocates, and more—now hinges on the adroit leadership of partnering executives.”
The programs committee seeks a diversity of presentations on topics that address the challenges and opportunities facing today’s biopharma partnering executives and their organizations. Key questions that presenters are encouraged to address include:
- How we lead in a way that makes the difference? What does it take to be strategic and proactive—without losing a relentless focus on execution? How can we guide our organizations as they collaborate across boundaries—and operationalize brand new business models in an increasingly interconnected network of new and existing partners?
- How can partnering executives seize opportunities and root out risks wherever we find them? How do we help our organizations “see around corners,” anticipate what’s next, and move forward confidently through continuously shifting business, societal, and regulatory landscapes.
- What builds a rock-solid management foundation for partnering success? You can’t “wing it” with partnering and collaboration—so how can partnering executives utilize ASAP’s alliance management expertise, training, shared knowledge, certification, and community as key building blocks for their sustainable success.
- How can partnering executives capture and deliver the value envisioned in every collaboration?
The 2015 ASAP BioPharma Conference will explore these and related questions, with the goal of helping partnering executives develop the perspective of visionary leadership and the expertise to act amidst uncertainty. Attendees at the 2015 ASAP BioPharma Conference will enhance their management skills to engage stakeholders and integrate partnering throughout the business, fostering healthier outcomes for people and billions in stakeholder revenue for their biopharma organizations and ecosystems.
