Thought Leader Select’s Meade to Address ExL Pharma KOL Conference

Thought Leader Select continues with a busy summer schedule of conference sponsorships, with the company’s support of ExL Pharma’s Fifth KOL Relationship Summit in Philadelphia.  Paul Meade, founder and President of Thought Leader Select, will address attendees at one of the must-attend events for American life sciences companies, coming on the heels of the company’s successful sponsorship of the Canadian Healthcare Licensing Association’s Summer Meeting and the Medical Science Liaison Society’s Global Conference in Boston.

The conference, geared to medical affairs and marketing professionals tasked with outreach to and collaboration with key opinion leaders (KOLs) in the medical community, will take place June 24-25 at the Hyatt Bellevue in the Center City area of downtown Philadelphia.  The Summit will feature a variety of speakers from companies within the life sciences industry, as well as consultants from the world of KOL strategy, CRM software, medical communications, and digital engagement platforms for healthcare.

Thought Leader Select’s Meade will lead an afternoon session on day one of the event, speaking on the topic, “Can Industry Still Work Effectively with KOLs?” During his talk, Meade will illustrate many of the challenges facing both industry representatives and thought leaders in the medical community, including transparency, scrutiny, and speed of information.  He will walk attendees through solutions that will lead to greater trust and credibility for relationships among industry players and medical leaders, with methods that lead to mutually-beneficial outcomes that keep patient needs first.

Neil Mellor, the company’s business development consultant based in Toronto, and Kristen Smithwick, Thought Leader Select’s Vice President of Business Development, Marketing, and Strategic Planning, will also attend the KOL Relationship Summit.

“We are pleased to renew our partnership with the great team at ExL Pharma for the organization’s Fifth KOL Relationship Summit,” stated Brian Castle, Director of Global Marketing and Client Relations at Thought Leader Select. “Our company has a rich history with ExL—we routinely meet great people from the industry and add to our expertise as we learn from our industry partners in the field, as they collaborate with KOLs in medical affairs and product development initiatives.  We appreciate the quality of information and collaborative spirit we see from the attendees, speakers, and panelists year after year at the MASS East and KOL Summit events.”
