Panel Discussion Customer Service Fireside Chat
Customer service is critical to the success of the contemporary business. Though the pharmaceutical industry has always put its customers first, its end users — consumers — can get short shrift in the customer service area. Many customer service centers in pharma companies are not tied into the sales and marketing side. Data is unharvested, opportunities are missed and messages may not be consistent. While there is a necessary separation in our industry between promotion and information, there is still an opportunity to build a stronger relationship between Marketing/Communications and Customer Service, perhaps even driving additional revenue and better health outcomes.

DIGITAL PHARMA SOCIAL/INNOVATION DAY | Friday, October 2, 2015

Chaired by Shwen Gwee, Associate Director, Global Digital Customer Engagement at Biogen, Social/Innovation Day is dedicated to showcasing organizations that have been able to break the mold with innovative tools and tactics in order to reach their customers, develop brand loyalty and drive revenue. This is not a forum for those who believe that “we are pharma, and we can’t do that.” In 2014 we learned from case studies and fireside chats from LinkedIn and Eli Lilly, Tumblr and Janssen, Twitter and Novartis, Facebook and Medtronic, and Google and AstraZeneca. We also heard from Dell and a number of HealthTech startup companies.

Join us in this extremely interactive, case-sharing environment to find out who and how social/innovation is shaping our industry, and check back soon for additional details about this exciting day!
