    WHAT'S HAPPENING - [view previous events]

    AFTERNOON BRIEFING - 3 DECEMBER 2014 - MACCLESFIELD

    Procuring MedComms - an insider's view

    In recent years one of the most significant developments for agencies that provide MedComms services has been the increased influence of the Pharma procurement departments on the purchasing and supply process. Procurement specialists are seen by many as simply wanting to slash costs, but is that a fair judgement? Can MedComms services such as medical writing really be reduced to a commodity-based approach? Can it all simply be reduced to a cost per thousand words? Where's the magic? What's the cost of 'excellence'? Where's the 'partnership' we all hear about?

    David Pilley is an independent consultant specialising in procurement of marketing and MedComms services and has long experience working for and consulting with big Pharma, such as AstraZeneca and GSK, and also for service side agencies. At this event David will talk as an insider about what the procurement specialists are aiming to achieve on their side, and specifically how they view MedComms services, and he'll lead a valuable discussion about how to work effectively with procurement departments from pitch through to delivery.

    As usual the meeting will not only serve as a valuable educational opportunity but also allow plenty of time for networking with colleagues from across the MedComms business.

    This event will be free of charge to attend. If you can help support this event please contact Peter Llewellyn on email peter@networkpharma.com
