Future Leaders' Days
2022 ISPE Future Leaders' Days
A versatile program brought together participants from all across the globe
The 2021 ISPE Future Leaders Days was made up of three tracks (Career Development, Innovation and Technology, and Leadership) and the overall theme of the event was Equality, Leadership and Innovation in Biopharma. The virtual conference had inspiring keynote speeches from Eamon Judge, Alice Redmond, Joyce Hansen and Jörg Zimmermann. The individual tracks were filled with fantastic talks from speakers located all across the globe, including Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Spain, Ireland, US, Denmark, The Netherlands and France.
Keeping an open mindset in times of constantly changing environments
All speakers provided insightful information and told interesting stories, creating an informal atmosphere and a unique look behind the curtain of our industry. To get the participants into direct contact with presented topics, three interactive workshops were offered, focusing on: (i) Data science for process characterisation, (ii) Building your career on your strength and (iii) Leading through change.
The general theme running through the talks and workshops could be summarised as follows:
- The importance of self-empowerment and continuous personal skill development to have a successful career in the biopharma industry
- The biopharma industry is becoming more and more digital and we need to make sure that we are adapting to these changes, or else we will be left behind
- Communication, empathy, change management skills and a clear direction are some of the key traits for successful leaders in the biopharma industry
