Innovators Take the LEADThursday, December 10th, 2015
Last May 29, 2014, LiFEDATA hosted a meeting with senior executives from Swiss-based pharmaceuticals and life sciences – Novartis. As part of their LEAD Program, the Novartis team met with LiFEDATA’s CEO/President Malu Florendo and other executives for an informal discussion on leveraging opportunities in the healthcare business through strategic partnerships. Comprised of future leaders from Korea, Japan, China, Russia, India, Thailand and Singapore, the Novartis team, were in Manila for an In-Market program that’s designed to build leadership capabilities, broaden participants’ perspectives, accelerate divergent thinking and add new insights to business challenges.
As one of the leading innovators of healthcare technology in the Philippines, LiFEDATA’s approach to strategic alliances and its impact to business growth was something that the Novartis team wanted to learn. Discussions involved the role of innovation in the company’s success and identifying key enablers and drivers of innovation in the organization. The sharing of insights, experiences and learnings was definitely helpful for both parties that’s why LiFEDATA looks forward to a future of brighter prospects with Novartis.
