I looked out at the Zoom faces of my newly-formed, second company — our software development partner, our SaaS product advisor, and our product head Kristin Fahy (previously with The NemetzGroup), all who wanted to help turn the vision I had into a reality.

With six weeks left in the year, this November e-conversation should be all about getting in gear for the 2021 planning cycle. Or, maybe, it should be about Q1, JPM, and how to tell your commercial story in a nanosecond or less. Or how about gratitude, since it is almost Thanksgiving?

Reverse Mentoring with Up-and-Coming Talent

In the accelerated, high-stakes world of biopharma, thinking big, thinking fast, and thinking smart, isn’t just an option — it’s a priority. Why then, are we not tapping into our most educated generation and exploring what millennials have to offer? (A rhetorical question, for sure.)

An Abundance of Riches in Uncertain Times

Pandemic or not, our industry continues to speed along at an accelerated pace. Of course, the routines have changed — virtual calls instead of conference rooms, homemade coffee instead of a morning meeting at the nearest Starbucks, and much more.
