Robert Falcon Global Commercial Training Aegerion Pharmaceuticals CONFERENCESPOTLIGHTS Why the Conference is a Must-Attend Event ■ By Tim Sosbe S o now that you've heard about the various events and networking opportunities at the 45th LTEN Annual Conference, it's down to personal preparation. As with anything we do, conference attendance is successful based on the effort we expend. Fortunately, LTEN members are primed and ready for the annual event. We recently spoke with a small group of LTEN members, asking what they (and you) are looking forward to at the conference. Glen Drummond Senior Director, Commercial Learning & Development Depomed "Networking with colleagues, presenting with a partner, acquiring knowledge thru the Director/VP track programming and finally team building with my learning & development team. Ultimately upon our return to California, each person on my team will share what they learned so we can collectively enhance our programming and curricula." Joe Penna Associate Director Field Sales Leadership Development Bayer "What I love about the LTEN conference is the opportunity to celebrate the accomplishments of my colleagues through participation in their respective workshops." "(Insight into) Rare disease and specialty market sales training. These are seasoned, well-commercial sales that require sophisticated training approaches." Vicki Colman Associate Director Sales Training Bayer "The Annual LTEN Conference is a great opportunity to refresh and reconnect with my training colleagues throughout the industry. I learn so much from my peers and industry partners! Can't wait to see you all in Maryland!" Joyce Brewer Senior Manager, Field Systems Training Novo Nordisk "The opportunity to learn more about selfpaced and remote learning options. Also hoping to see some workshops on tech training (like CRM systems)." Lesley Van Dyk Sales Trainer Celgene "The collaboration with other colleagues to learn from each other." Kathleen Spelman | Associate Director, Global Sales Training & Development Grifols "From a conference perspective, I am looking forward to networking opportunities, learning about new technologies and mobile applications, while gaining insight about executive development solutions/offerings. From a developmental perspective, I am seeking to gain improvement on training and development metrics and pre- and postlearning sessions, as well as coaching initiatives for tenured employees." How about you? With the conference drawing closer, feel free to share your thoughts on what you're looking forward to, what you hope to find and how you're preparing for the event.
