The TLL role continues to grow in the Pharma industry, more companies are adding the role and also they are expanding on different medical specialties. There are some trailblazers but not much consistency across the industry when it comes to describing and preparing TLLs

The event will provide the opportunity to unify ideas and consolidate processes unleashing to the fullest extent the TLL role both internally and externally.

Learn from the people that created the role from scratch on their companies as to how to maximize the time, role and the experience for everyone involved, how to select the ideal TLLs for your team, the needs to start a new TLL team, how to promote the role internally to build successful relationships with your peers, how to focus on the constant education of the role and more!
