Applying Top Trends for Life Sciences L&D

Thursday, March 30, 2023
12:30 p.m. ET/9:30 a.m. PT


Each year, life sciences leaders around the globe look to Syneos Health’s Annual Trends Report as the comprehensive account of industry developments and to harvest insights that can help shape a future of sustainable business outcomes. If 2022 was a year of reset, this year’s report looks to 2023 as a year of renewal and re-imagining, where the senses are sharpened around what we need to learn.

This year, we are asking, how do we start imagining a future and building the purposeful, personal impact that we want to have on it? What can we do to create optimism and a sense of future agency to make these positive outcomes possible?

Join us for this LTEN webinar, sponsored by Syneos Health. We will focus on specific components and cases of Syneos Health’s 2023 Life Science Trends that are right-now-relevant for learning and development (L&D) professionals – from the emergence of AI-driven individualized learning journeys to the dawn of powerful new data sets driving strategic decisions. We’ll also introduce our proprietary framework for prioritizing key trends most relevant to your strategic learning plans and transform them into actionable insights for the months ahead.

In this one-hour session, participants will:

  • Explore 12 life sciences trends tailored for L&D leaders.

Virtual Reality Life Sciences Training: Stop Dabbling, Start Disrupting

Friday, March 31, 2023
12:30 p.m. ET/9:30 a.m. PT


The metaverse of learning has arrived – it’s just unevenly distributed. Many life sciences learning organizations are still dipping their toes with pilots that are too small and unimaginative to transform learning. Stuck in “pilot purgatory,” they fail to harness the economic value of the metaverse. It’s time to stop dabbling and start disrupting life sciences learning as we know it.

A new generation of reality-bending learning simulations has unleashed a wave of experiential and visceral learning we once could only dream about.

Join us for this demo-packed LTEN webinar as virtual reality (VR) expert Anders Gronstedt, Ph.D. shows how life sciences leaders at Pfizer, Takeda, Novartis and Bristol Myers Squibb successfully train with VR. Learn how they practice gowning and gloving, sterile tube welding and sealing, first air rule and aseptic practices in hyper-realistic VR labs. This webinar will guide you through:

  • Building a solid business case for VR training and gaining sponsorship.
  • Achieving IT approval for VR.
  • Designing and developing effective VR modules.
  • Structuring a VR pilot and evaluation plan.
  • Scaling VR across the enterprise.

Learn how to empower your people to move seamlessly, in the flow of work, from the workplace to a pixelated practice space where they can build muscle memory and mastery in the presence of peers and mentors. More than a strategy for learning success, VR learning will soon become table stakes for survival.

Data-Driven Approaches: Measuring Success Beyond Certification for Product Launches, POAs and NSMs

Tuesday, April 18, 2023
12:30 p.m. ET/9:30 a.m. PT


Traditional methods for measuring the success of product launches, plan of action meetings (POAs) and national sales meetings (NSMs) include curriculum development and delivery on-time, within budget and certification for all field teams. But what if success was more than simply checking these boxes? A deeper value can be derived from these massive logistical and financial expenditures to demonstrate their lasting impact on learning retention, long term behavior change and productivity in the field.

In the third of three LTEN webinars in the “A Data-Driven Approach to Optimize Product Launches, POAs and NSMs” series, sponsored by ACTO, you will hear about the importance of monitoring early performance indicators such as field coaching reports and resource usage, and how to leverage data to implement post-event reinforcement. You’ll hear from Lisa Dreher, associate director, national sales training for Currax Pharmaceuticals; Dave Noonan, senior director business development for Red Nucleus; and Jimmy Christie, senior commercial training manager for ACTO as they show you how to:

  • Analyze data to uncover competency gaps, faster.
  • Utilize video coaching and field coaching reports for pull-through.
  • Leverage event materials for post-event resources.

Whether you’re a seasoned training professional or a newcomer, this webinar series will provide a blueprint on how to leverage new data insights to help make informed decisions on things like pre-work curriculum, live event content and post-event pull-through that will change what  product launch, POA and NSM success looks like.

Are You Missing That One Thing That Could Supercharge Your Omnichannel Efforts?

Friday, April 21, 2023
12:30 p.m. ET/9:30 a.m. PT


Most life sciences organizations have some type of omnichannel strategy to improve customer engagement and put the customer in the center.

A common pitfall in omnichannel implementation is that most of the energy and resources go to powering the systems, data and journey creation, leaving little left to prepare the field force in omnichannel execution. Organizations may assume that the field force will quickly understand and execute their responsibilities for omnichannel. However, new skills and ways of working are needed for successful omnichannel execution.

Join us for this 30-minute LTEN webinar, sponsored by Red Nucleus, to hear practical tips and best practices for preparing the field force for omnichannel execution. At this webinar, you’ll learn:

  • The skills and mindsets required for the field force to successfully support omnichannel engagement.
  • The role field force management plays in omnichannel execution.
  • A spectrum of approaches to prepare the field force for their role in omnichannel execution.
