KOL Engagement Virtual Summit

, Online Event , Your Computer

During a time of much disruption to "business as usual" for the life sciences industry, this event focuses on the intersection of managing and maintaining KOL engagement.

Even pre-COVID, this engagement was an area of significant importance that was constantly being tweaked based on regulatory guidance and industry best practices – but now that in-person/face to face meetings (including with your own internal teams) are no longer possible – the entire KOL playbook has changed.

With so many opinions, tech tools and tactics available, we look forward to bringing medical affairs/MSL's community together to take a deep dive into all aspects of working with KOLs in this challenging environment. Attendees will walk away with updates on how best map out their KOL strategy moving forward and new connections with industry colleagues facilitated through our advanced virtual event platform.

Top Reasons to Attend:

  • Manage and maintain KOL engagement in our "new" normal, before, during and after a launch
  • Establish best practices for working virtually with KOLs/advisory boards and learn new ways to keep an engaging relationship
  • Know and understand the elements that facilitate productive relationships which leads to beneficial meetings with your thought leaders
  • Approach digital transformation not only with KOLs but with DOLs (Digital Opinion Leaders), take a look at fresh and different ways to secure a successful interaction
