UL Compliance to Performance announced it will host the 2017 Leadership Forum in Philadelphia on September 18-20. The event will bring industry leaders from highly regulated companies around the world to share experiences and learn how to overcome the complex challenges facing today’s life sciences organizations.

“Successful life sciences companies, whether they are in the startup phase or expanding globally, tend to follow a path that focuses on competency and performance over simply meeting the regulatory requirements,” said Isabelle Noblanc, vice president and general manager of UL Compliance to Performance. “This forum is designed to be by the industry for the industry. Attendees will learn new approaches and techniques toward becoming high-performing companies in a tough global regulatory environment.”

The event will take place on September 18-20 at the Sheraton Philadelphia Society Hill Hotel, located at One Dock Street, Philadelphia, Pa.

The Keynote on Sept. 18 will be Tom Nichols, who will present “The Death of Expertise (we are all experts now…thank you internet).” Nichols is a professor at the Naval War College and at the Harvard Extension School, as well as a Senior Associate of the Carnegie Council on Ethics and International Affairs in New York City and a Fellow of the International History Institute at Boston University. He is also a five-time Jeopardy! champion.

The Keynote on Sept. 19 will be Shane Snow, who will present “Best Practices are not always the Best Practices.” Snow is an award-winning journalist, celebrated entrepreneur, and the best-selling author of Smartcuts: The Breakthrough Power of Lateral Thinking, and two forthcoming books (in 2017 and 2018). He is co-founder of the content technology company Contently, which helps creative people and companies tell great stories together, and serves on the board of the Contently Foundation for Investigative Journalism.

Each day will include engaging, highly interactive breakout sessions that explore hot topics of critical importance. The tracks will focus on the current challenges facing life sciences organizations in the areas of compliance, quality and business performance.
