08:35 AM - 08:45 AM Connecting Innovators Ice Breaker

08:45 AM - 09:00 AM Chairperson’s Opening Address

, ,
It’s no secret that when it comes to the biopharma industry, no one company is the same. Not only do our products, therapeutic areas and size vary from company to company, but we also see vast variations in infrastructure. The bones of a company like Pfizer – with more than 70,000 employees – are inherently different than a smaller biotech like Biogen, which employs closer to 7,000. Yet across the board, the industry is realizing that marketing and sales need to integrate in order for our promotional strategies to thrive.

During this interactive discussion, a mix of senior-level marketing and sales experts, from both big and small pharma, will kick off PharmaForce 2016 by addressing your most pressing and basic questions, such as:

• Why do silos exist and is it “healthy to have friction between marketing and sales teams?
• What are practical approaches to driving a collaborative culture and what would you recommend for up and coming leaders?
• How can we integrate the sales team into the marketing planning process?
• How can we share project assignments to improve teamwork and cooperation between marketing and sales?
• How can field advisory boards can provide valuable insights to the brand team?

09:40 AM - 10:20 AM Workshop: Innovative Approaches to Leadership Development

Brad Hummel, Senior Director, Field Force Effectiveness: Sales Training, Analytics, and , Entera Health, Inc.
Some problems with traditional Leadership Development Programs (LDPs) include favoring tenured or high-performing sales representatives and focusing on subjective assessments of core competencies. There are many real-world examples that support the saying “the best players (sales representatives) are not always the best coaches (managers)?” Aside from entry bias, most LDPs fail to develop “true” leaders or eliminate “would-be” leaders because they focus on participation in “canned” workshops or completion of on-line courses. According to research on adult learning principles, this is not an optimal approach in terms or retention rates or skill development. The consequences of having a traditional LDP can be severe and may impact everything from employee morale to the company’s bottom-line. In contrast, innovative LDPs are effective, efficient, and establish “true” leaders because they focus on objective assignments that align with business philosophy.

Participants will gain a better understanding of:
• The REAL reasons to have an LDP
• Traditional LDPs and why they FAIL
• Innovative LDPs and why they WORK
• How to incorporate innovative approaches to an existing LDP

Entera Health, Inc.
We all know that the healthcare landscape is changing. Physician prescribing behavior continues to shift as more HCPs turn to hospital systems and ACOs for employment. What are the implications for your sales reps? How are we adjusting our commercial infrastructure to fit as the industry shifts away from the traditional sales force model?

Our senior-level panelists, representing both small and large biopharma, will offer a distinct perspective on the following:

• The challenges, advantages and disadvantages of partnering with contract sales organizations (CSOs) versus internal sales organizations
• Hiring experienced reps versus reps with little or no experience
• The right ratio of sales versus marketing and strategic account managers/directors

11:55 AM - 12:15 PM Sales Internships – How can they work? Do they work?

Adam Shandler, Associate Director, Talent Acquisition & Talent Development, Dr. Reddy’s Laboratories
There are no guarantees when you hire sales talent from another company. There are always question marks around actual performance, cultural fit, and the ability to adapt. But one alternative to complement you experienced-hire recruiting is the Sales Internship. Internship programs allow you to develop sales people at the roots of their career, putting your company in command of how they learn the business. They also give emerging sales managers an opportunity to manage teams at a critical point in their own careers.

This presentation will cover:
• Examples of winning sales internship programs
• Finding strong internship candidates through on-campus sales challenges
• How to make the program valuable for both the intern and management
• What next? Can we hire these people fulltime?
