|LTEN Purpose, Value & History|
To harness the collective intelligence of our members in order to help them lead through complex change, and help their people maximize the value of customer engagement.
We provide life sciences training and education professionals with the clarity, community and career resources they need to excel in leadership and learning.
After 43 years, a 35,000 percent growth in membership, the addition of new industry sectors and a radically different training environment, the former Society of Pharmaceutical and Biotech Trainers (SPBT) announced on June 10, 2014 its new name - the Life Sciences Trainers & Educators Network, or LTEN (el-ten).
The next four decades brought considerable change. The association evolved from a small think tank of a handful of professionals into a strong membership-based society. In 2000, as a response to the biotech boom and the broadening range of responsibilities outside of sales training, the name was changed to the Society of Pharmaceutical & Biotech Trainers, or SPBT.
LTEN has always been led by leading training professionals in the life science industry. View our list of past presidents.
The LTEN Hall of Fame acknowledges the valuable distinguished members that have made a difference to the life science training industry.
