Kim O’Connor (Senior Director Meeting and Conventions, Sanofi-Aventis) started us off on Day 3 of Pharma Forum by discussing the theme of the day: empower.
She shared a video of interacting with different high school students about what empowerment meant to each of them. The resounding message was, “invest in yourself,” as O’Connor put it. She encouraged the attendees not only to get the most out of the last day of the conference, but also to be lifelong learners.
A Little Music and Lot of Motivation
The second session of the day began with a surprise saxophone solo (hand to my heart!) by Kaplan Mobray (Author, Motivational Speaker, Career Consultant, Kaplan Mobray, Inc.) in Career Accelerator Workshop – Build Your Brand. In this exceptionally engaging session, Mobray moved discussed different aspects of building a personal brand, based on his book, The 10Ks of Personal Branding.
Mobray truly lived up to his reputation of being “the most energetic speaker you’ve ever seen!”
An Event to Remember
The whirlwind that was Pharma Forum 2017 provided me with insight and discussions that I likely would never have had if I hadn’t attended. Though I was often behind a camera, or captivated by the latest interactive presentation tools, I was able to walk away from the event feeling like I had made great connections and opened doors for new opportunities.
I can’t wait to see how CBI tops this event next year!
