Member Testimonials


“HR BioTech Connect provides a very interactive, collaborative learning and networking environment for HR professionals in the life sciences. There is a very open and candid dialogue which allows you to understand how other HR leaders in biotech/pharma are handling challenges in their organization and what trends they are seeing in the industry. I’ve found the speakers and topics discussed to be very engaging and I’ve been able to apply things I have learned at these meetings into my daily work product. Overall, this is a very different and productive working group than other networking groups or industry trade association resources out there. I highly recommend any life science HR professional to actively participate in this group and be ready to learn new ideas, approaches and strategies each time you attend.”
