Winter Seminar 2017 - Login to Pharma's Future: Are You Signed Up?

Royal College of General Practitioners, 30 Euston Square, London NW1 2FB

9:30 AM - 3:30 PM



Technology is moving at an exponential pace in all sectors, offering solutions to problems that were never thought possible, yet no sector is moving faster than healthcare.  The likes of Apple, Google, Microsoft, Amazon and Samsung are entering the pharma arena, with their significant cash reserves, innovative cultures and marketing clout. 

This year’s Winter Seminar will get us all thinking about the outlook for pharma in this new landscape, how our skill sets may need to evolve and whether our futures as insight providers will be in Google Pharma, or in traditional Pharma. How is technology going to affect our sector in the future, and how can Pharma develop the entrepreneurial mindset to benefit from this shift?
