The Vanguard Forum for Life Sciences Leaders - Online, October 21 - 22, 2020
Leading Into The Future
October 21 - October 22, 2020
Last year’s Life Sciences Forum focused on how top leaders learned from the crises in 2020 to build high performance for the long term.
The online forum was held from noon - noon on October 21 and 22, with eight virtual sessions over the two days.
Vanguard focuses uniquely on pragmatic, real-world leadership challenges for top executives like you. We have been working with C-suite colleagues for more than seven years of highly impactful programs.
Session leaders were deeply experienced CEOs, Board members, and other leadership experts.
Participants learned from the sessions — and each other.

THE FORUM AND THE NETWORK
This learning and networking experience builds on previous highly impactful Vanguard Forums, which The Vanguard Network has been producing since 2014. The Vanguard Network, led by Ken Banta, is dedicated to helping current C-suite executives build sustainable high performance in their organizations.
Forum participation was by invitation only and was offered to Life Sciences executives from across all business sectors in North America.
Importantly, participation in the Forum in October was just the beginning. The Forum registration fee included an annual membership in the Vanguard Network, which brings a variety of valuable benefits. These include access to the private networking and leadership-learning platform Vanguard Connect, where members connect with one another and Vanguard faculty, discuss key leadership topics, and find original and curated leadership-learning videos, podcasts and articles.
Members are also entitled to invitations to small, virtual and face-to-face Vanguard Leadership events led by senior faculty members and to a 20% on any other invitation-only Forums across the year.
