The fourth annual Global Pharmaceutical and Medical Meetings Summit will take place Feb. 10-12 at the Philadelphia Marriott Downtown, featuring the latest updates on record reporting, crisis management, partnerships and operational tips.
The summit kicks off on Feb. 10 with four workshops and a session that will allow attendees to earn the Meeting Professionals International (MPI) Healthcare Meeting Compliance Certificate. The certificate program provides health care meeting compliance stakeholders with the knowledge and experience they need to successfully navigate the increasingly complex pharmaceutical, biotech and medical device regulatory environment.
On opening night, Philadelphia Convention and Visitors Bureau will host the kick-off party. Greater Philadelphia Life Sciences Congress (PHLLife), a division of Philadelphia CVB, is title sponsor for the compliance certificate.

Also on Feb. 10, Michael Lyons, who plays Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives in the hit Netflix series House of Cards, will join Agnes Canonica, CMP, CMM, HMCC, to co-lead a seminar, “Enhancing and Positioning Your Personal Brand.” Lyons is a former hospitality and meetings executive who has emerged as a keynote speaker in the industry.
“I enjoy speaking to groups because I feel a need to share and pass on some of the insight and wisdom I have gained throughout my life,” Lyons says. “As the meetings industry looks for the next generation of talented thought leaders, helping those knowledgeable professionals rise to the next level in their careers requires a focus on managing and developing their personal brand.”
The workshop will walk participants through a road map of how to build and sustain their personal brand. Participants will learn how to clear a path for recognition, establish trust and rise to the top. Some of the takeaways will include how to create a distinct value proposition; develop accurate and effective self-appraisal skills; discover the abilities required to transform good ideas into an actionable game plan for success; and implement public speaking tips and tricks.
On Feb. 11, there will be a panel discussion on meeting department promotion, structures and organization. The panelists will be Isabelle Gordon from Bayer Healthcare, Michael Mahoney from Genentech and Joe Bierowski from Maritz Travel.
