LTEN Connect 2020: Connections, Sharing & Safety
Overview – By Tim Sosbe
Even though it’s brand new, LTEN Connect 2 020 is shaping up to be another remarkable event with something to offer anyone in life sciences training, whether you’re an industry veteran or new to your position. With an agenda featuring workshops, microlearning, keynote presentations, networking, fun and camaraderie, there’s literally something for everyone.
Here’s a quick rundown of what to expect.
On the Main Stage
Later in this issue you’ll meet the keynote speakers and our LTEN Talks presenters. This year’s main speakers will share unique perspectives, singular visions and future-forward presentations that’ll be sure to get you thinking and talking. Be sure to join us for the mainstage presentations on June 9 and 11, and plan to be inspired.
Even though you’re not really leaving your office (home or otherwise), you can still see familiar faces and old friends, and broaden your circle and your professional network.
We’ve set up various opportunities for you to connect and learn from one another, including special networking events and virtual poster presentations.
- It doesn’t have to be random meetings: If there’s someone you’re looking to meet, you can message them through the app.
There’s an App for That
The PheedLoop virtual event platform comes with its own app that can help you throughout the event.
The tool can raise your virtual experience, so download prior to the event and be ready to hit the ground running.
In addition to containing the most current information on the agenda – including any last-minute changes – the app can help you review sessions, share feedback, connect to speakers, and build your agenda.
It Takes a Learning Village
You’ll see more about the schedule, Learning Labs and events taking place in the Learning Village later in this issue, but it comes down to this: It’s the center of your event experience and we hope you spend time there to connect, learn and grow.
You’ll find training partners with all types of services and resources to share with you; visit and remember their investment makes events like this possible.
