ASAP Announces Theme and Program for Sept. 9-11, 2015 ASAP BioPharma Conference Focused on Evolution of Partnering in the Rapidly Evolving Ecosystem

Posted By Cynthia Hanson, Friday, July 31, 2015

This week, ASAP issued a press release announcing the theme and program for the 2015 ASAP BioPharma Conference, the organization’s annual event attended by partnering executives from around the world who work in life sciences and healthcare. “Alliance Expertise at the Forefront: Leadership for the Ecosystem” is the theme of the three-day conference at the Revere Hotel, Boston Common.

 

“The healthcare and life sciences industries are going through a profound metamorphosis and alliance executives need to prepare for significant adaptation,” said Michael Leonetti, president and CEO, ASAP, in the release. “This year once again will be the pivotal event for partnering executives in biopharma and its ecosystem, as our conference will discuss drivers in the ecosystem that are causing fundamental shifts, such as new technologies, demographic and lifestyle changes, shortages in resources, and scientific, regulatory, and market forces. We’ll explore the questions of why alliance managers need to get ahead of this shift, why these ecosystems are beginning to emerge now, how they differ from traditional markets, what new incentives will emerge, and the best ways for individual organizations to respond.”

 

Registration for the 2015 ASAP BioPharma Conference begins at 7 a.m. Wednesday, Sept. 9. For an additional fee, attendees attend one of three pre-conference professional development workshops taking place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., including a CA-AM Certification Exam Prep Workshop facilitated by Ben Gomes-Casseres, CSAP, author, alliance strategy consultant, and Brandeis University professor.

 

Opening remarks will kick off the main conference at 4:45 p.m., followed by a late afternoon conference keynote, “Taking on a Silent Killer through Partnership and big Data” by Niven R. Narain, co-founder, president, and chief technology officer at Berg Health.

 

Thursday morning’s plenary session kicks off with “ASAP Quick Takes,” designed after the renowned “TED Talks.” Heather Fraser, global life sciences & healthcare lead at IBM’s Institute for Business Values, will talk about “Redefining Partnering in the Healthcare and Life Sciences Ecosystem.”  Cindy Warren, vice president of alliance management at Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson & Johnson, will explore “Alliance Leadership for the Healthcare Ecosystem.”

 

The second half of the morning is devoted to “Deeper Dive” sessions with more in-depth speaker presentations and peer exchanges in solution-focused roundtable discussions. Fifteen educational sessions, starting that afternoon and ending the following day at noon, include interactive presentations, mini-workshops, and expert panels discussing essentials and current skills for the alliance professional.

2015 ASAP BioPharma Conference Focuses on the Importance of Alliance Expertise and Leadership in the Life Sciences and Healthcare Ecosystems

Posted By Cynthia Hanson, Thursday, July 2, 2015

Biopharma is undergoing a sea change, driven both from within and without. Scientific, regulatory and market forces are introducing new alliance partners and partnering models. “Alliance Expertise at the Forefront: Leadership for the Ecosystem,” the theme of the 2015 ASAP Biopharma Conference, Sept. 9-11, in Boston, Mass., addresses this dynamic and the impact it is having on the role of alliance management.  The conference will explore why alliance managers need to get out ahead of this fundamental shift in the increasingly interconnected network of new and existing partners; why ecosystems are beginning to emerge now; how they differ from traditional markets; what new incentives will emerge, and the best ways for individual organizations to respond.

 

The two-day event happening over three days at the Revere Hotel, Boston Common, kicks off late afternoon Wednesday, Sept. 9, with conference keynote Niven R. Narain, co-founder, president, and chief technology officer at Berg Health, a Boston-based biopharma company known for its use of big data and artificial intelligence algorithms to isolate the root causes of disease and develop personalized treatment options for patients. Narain will discuss an innovative partnership Berg has formed with an array of hospitals and research teams to discover the first clinical biomarker for pancreatic research using its technology. The afternoon’s events will conclude with a reception to connect with partners and colleagues, and network among some of the industry’s leading alliance professionals.  

Thursday morning will feature “ASAP Quick Takes,” patterned after the well-known “TED Talks,” delivered by outstanding speakers in a plenary session. Heather Fraser, global life sciences & healthcare lead at IBM’s Institute for Business Values, will present a very timely talk “Partnering in the Healthcare and Life Sciences Ecosystem.” The session offers data and case studies on ways that biopharma companies are partnering within the ecosystem to optimize performance and address the challenges of today’s regulatory and market challenges. According to Fraser, ecosystems are transforming much of the way healthcare and the life sciences industries operate, including why and how they are partnering and with whom.  

“Alliance Leadership for the Healthcare Ecosystem,” by Cindy Warren, vice president of alliance management at Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson & Johnson, will address what today’s alliance professional needs to tackle the changing biopharma environment. Partnering models are rapidly changing, and it requires keen skills, adaptability, agility, finesse, and the potential of someone running a business, says Warren. With over 21 years of broad industry experience, Warren will provide the tips and insider insights alliance managers need, what she looks for in her team, and where she sees opportunities for alliance professionals to deliver differentiated value that can set companies apart.  

Following the Quick Takes, “Deeper Dive” sessions feature both more in-depth presentations by the plenary speakers and exchanging ideas with peers in solution-focused roundtable discussions on a range of leadership issues and alliance management challenges. The remainder of the conference features a variety of interactive presentations, mini-workshops and expert panels addressing the skills and expertise alliance professionals need today. A few of the topics covered include negotiation, alliance decision making, managing transitions, and working with CROs to enhance innovation.  

“Alliance Expertise at the Forefront: Leadership for the Ecosystem,” attracts partnering executives, academics, innovators, managers, patient advocates, service organizations, and other life sciences and healthcare representatives from countries around the world.
