LIFE SCIENCES 2010: The Global Collaboration Imperative event co-sponsored by Microsoft and ProtonMedia

If you're in life sciences, I probably don't need to tell you that the industry is at a turning point. The jury is out on how it will recover from the global recession, and companies are under pressure to accelerate discovery, grow revenues, improve learning, and boost sales with a thin workforce.

However, as we have featured here on the blog, top life sciences companies are using new-generation collaboration technology to address their business needs and stay ahead of this new competitive landscape. In our experience, we've seen our life sciences customers take innovative approaches to online learning, teaming, and collaboration. And these approaches have yielded significant results in the forms of increased knowledge retention, decreased travel time and costs, improved communications, and more.

We think the lessons learned from these experiences are valuable for other life sciences organizations that want to achieve similar objectives, and help sales, R&D, and business line leaders execute decisions in less time and with fewer resources.

So we teamed up with Microsoft to put together an exclusive panel discussion and Q&A session with top executives from leading life sciences companies and think tanks. The event, LIFE SCIENCES: The Global Collaboration Imperative, will take place on Jan. 19, 2010. Our panel will discuss how life sciences and pharma organizations are using innovative (some would say radical) collaboration technologies to out-think and out-sell their competitors in today's environment.

It's a one-time, invitation-only event with very limited seating. And we wanted to extend an invitation to our blog community. For more details on the event and to register, please visit our invitation page. But register ASAP, because seats are filling up.

All attendees will receive a signed pre-release copy of the new book, "Learning in 3D: Adding a New Dimension to Enterprise Learning and Collaboration," written by panelist Dr. Tony O'Driscoll, Professor of the Practice of Business Administration, Duke University, Fuqua School of Business; and co-author Dr. Karl Kapp, professor of instructional technology at Bloomsburg University.

The discussion will be moderated by a top life sciences personality, and will feature several surprise guests. When you register, you will receive notice of all participants.

Here are the nitty-gritty details of the event:
