Expert interview with Robert Gaertner, speaker of ‘Transform Change Management with a Modern QMS’ webinar.

What do you hope the audience will learn from this webinar?

I expect that most of our audience will have a deep quality background and will be familiar with the basics of change management. So, the focus of this webinar is to provide practical advice.

The pharma industry is undergoing a transformation that has a significant impact on the effectiveness and efficiency of change management. This webinar will explore why change management needs to be modernized and key steps required to achieve this.

What discussions do you look forward to having with the audience?

I would like to understand what tactics quality units are currently applying to cope with the constantly increasing number of post-approval changes. And whether there is a more strategic approach to this where technology can support the process.

What do you enjoy most about your role?

It’s very easy – as Veeva’s strategy lead for quality in Europe, I have the unique opportunity to have a lot of interesting discussions on burning industry topics. This webinar is a good example!

How did you get into the industry?

There are a lot of life sciences companies in the region I’m from. My first student job was in a quality control lab and I joined the quality management department with the same company after graduating. It’s always good to learn things from the ground up!

Where is your favourite place in the world and why?

Definitely Barcelona! You wouldn’t find another large city in the world with the perfect combination of culture, beachfront, nightlife and good weather. There might be a reason why Veeva’s European Headquarters are located there!
