Why You Should Join:

If the pandemic taught us anything, it’s that people crave and need relationships. These relationships help to support decision-making and help you meet daily challenges. To be of real value, these relationships need to be ongoing and between industry professionals who share the same areas of interest, face the same obstacles and have similar roles and responsibilities.

Although industry events have evolved over time, all still fall short when it comes to supporting relationship-building.  Xtalks Peer Circles have been developed to fix the following shortcomings:

  • Attending conferences, tradeshows and virtual events can be a great way to make connections but connections are not relationships
  • Conferences and webinars can deliver great educational content, but the agenda has been set by the event organizer and not by the participants
  • No events offer a truly vendor-free environment and little consideration is ever  given to matching attendees with other peers facing the same challenges

Join this Peer Circle to get access to the latest information and best practices in clinical trials for oncological drugs in the most efficient way possible. This Peer Circle provides access to exclusive meetings led by leaders in clinical trials without vendors or solutions providers. Because you’re matched with other leaders in your field, you save time on networking by connecting immediately with the people you want to learn from.

What You Will Learn:

They will develop strategies to deal with expected and unexpected issues and source best practices from other leaders in the field.

What You Will Get:
