EBD Academy Launch

Global Human Capital Survey in a bid to drive sector insights

Pharmaceutical training organisation, EBD Academy, surveying top life science organisations to discover the challenges and trends for future-proofing talent strategies in global life sciences.

EBD Academy was born out of a partnership between EBD Group and Pharmaceutical Training International (PTI), utilising both party’s deep expertise in life sciences and their vast networks to deliver learning and networking opportunities for organisations of all sizes.

EBD Group deliver 7 global events, providing networking opportunities to over 10,000 executive level attendees each year and, with the formation of the EBD Academy, now provides a platform to deliver that insight and expertise to life sciences professionals.

Part of EBD Academy’s drive for new insights and latest industry trends, we have launched our Future-Proofing Human Capital In Global Life Sciences survey, in partnership with In-Vivo, part on Informa’s Pharma Intelligence unit. The report asks senior figures across the life science sector to identify the key hurdles they face when attracting talent and issues retaining high potential staff.

The survey will culminate in a report, highlighting the current human capital situation in life sciences, detailing analysis on trends, challenges and company-wide strategies in various life science sectors, such as pharma, biotechnology, medical devices and CROs. The report is designed to help companies in the life science space utilise the survey information to develop a strategy for their human capital resources.

This year we showcased our training methods launching EBD Academy at Bio-Europe spring with a one-day course on Advanced Negotiation Skills. In conjunction with EBD Group we also produced free to attend Buzz Sessions on presentation skills and diamond relationships.
