MVA Good Morning Meeting “Key Opinion Leaders (KOLs): The future of engagement”

Connecting with and managing relationships with key opinion leaders (KOLs) is a crucial part of any research-based organization, as well as the surrounding ecosystem. Speaking with the right expert at the right time is invaluable. Breaking through the knowledge silos that exist within the life science industry is critical for any organization. However – finding, managing and communicating with key experts is both an art and a science. Join us for this live session as we discuss:

  • How different organizations find and manage expert relationships
  • The technologies and networks that streamline this process: through Knowledge Gate Group or internally
  • Case studies on the transformational effect of expert connections
