AMCF Life Sciences Leadership Forum


NEW YORK, Oct. 3, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- AMCF, the premier international association of firms that are engaged in consulting to senior management, will hold its annual Life Sciences Leadership Forum on Friday, October 26th, 2012 in New York City. It will be hosted by Ernst & Young at their New York offices, 5 Times Square.


The life sciences industry is at a crossroads. Companies are no longer being rewarded for incremental innovation, me-too products, and volume selling. Life sciences companies have to learn to collaborate more closely with players inside and outside the sector so they can respond to the demands from different stakeholders. To ensure a sustainable business model, they will need to join forces with a wide range of organizations, from academic institutions, hospitals, and technology providers to companies offering compliance programs, nutritional advice, stress management, physiotherapy, exercise facilities, and health screening.

Among the specific topics to be addressed:

  • Integrating the Life Sciences Industry More Fully Into the Larger Care Cycle
  • The Current State of Play In the Life Sciences Industry
  • Successfully Repositioning a Life Sciences Company as an Active Player in the Healthcare Cycle
  • The Changing Value Proposition Between the Industry and Healthcare Payers

Speakers and panelists include: John Castellani, President and COE, PhRMA; Barbara Tardiff, VP, Development Operations, Pfizer; Ajaz Hussain, Chief Scientific Officer & President Biotechnology, Wockhardt, USA; John Connolly, Ed.D., President & CEO, Castle Connolly Medical Ltd., Peter Barschdorff, Bayer Business Consulting; and Alexander Moscho, Bayer AG.

The event is designed for life sciences, pharmaceutical, and biotechnology professionals, management consultants, and government officials. It will be held from 9-1:30 p.m. For more information and to register, please go to
