What do you hope the audience will learn from this webinar?
I hope that the audience will be as energized and motivated as we are about the future of regulatory in Life Sciences and how digital technologies such as cloud based solutions from Veeva, robotics and artificial intelligence can achieve real business value to the industry. The technologies already exist and it is often the business change required for this type of transformation that poses the biggest hurdle. We plan to discuss approaches to enabling business change during the webinar and hope that participants will learn something new about how they can achieve the success they are striving for.
What discussions do you look forward to having with the audience?
Building a better working world is our purpose at EY. I’m looking forward to hearing about the experiences of participants in digitally transforming their regulatory functions, where they have had the most difficulties, how they have addressed these and the potential they see for the future. Sharing these insights, experiences and “war wounds” amongst this community is where we learn from each other and convert theory into practice.
What do you enjoy most about your role?
The variety of interesting people that I work within the industry and how different companies are responding to the regulatory pressures and technology trends that they are faced with. I am a practical person and seeing tangible change in the industry, that ultimately have positive implications for patients, is why I get up in the morning.
How did you get into the industry?
After becoming a consultant, I had my first experience working in the industry during the implementation of a clinical trial management system. I was hooked and the rest is history.
Join Joanna Taylor on 15th February for a webinar entitled Digital Transformation in Regulatory at 3PM CET/2PM GMT.
