1. Why did you decide to conduct a webinar with Business Review Webinars?
Webinars have become an indispensible tool for helping our company reach target audiences with key messages. Our past experience, especially with live forums, has been very positive. As such, we feel it is to our advantage to continue to participate in them. Business Review Webinars are particularly effective and the right partner to help deliver our messages to the market.
2. What will the participant gain from participating in your webinar?
The event, which will be live, will focus on the advantages of dual-chamber syringes and cartridges, including the typical project steps in Lifecycle Management when changing from vials to dual-chamber systems. We will also discuss with participants why packaging material selection, feasibility, and lyophilization cycle development is essential in the drug development pathway.
3. What is your favorite part about presenting to a live audience?
Unlike a taped webinar, in a live forum you have the opportunity to get important feedback directly from the participants. Obviously, anyone who has taken the time to participate is well informed, genuinely interested in the topic, and is trying to find a solution to their real development project issues. That makes live forums fun and informative.
4. What was your inspiration in getting into the industry?
Thank you for asking. I have always been interested in the latest clinical therapies and the biochemistry behind them. For that reason, being in a field that features cutting edge pharmaceutical research and development was the obvious choice for me. I thoroughly enjoy my profession.
5. What one item would you take with you to a desert island?
My kindle! I only hope you can get WIFI access on the island.
Don’t forget to join the upcoming Vetter Pharma International GmbH webinar titled ‘Developing your lyophilized product in a dual chamber system’ on December 8th. This webinar will be shown at 8am London & 3pm London.
