The right leadership approach can create great results, but it's easier said than done. How do you get an organization aligned around common goals and objectives? What drives people to go the extra mile? How do you bring teams together and increase levels of engagement? Leadership in general and within the biotech industry will be looked at with discussion around principles, strategy, and tactics.

Join the West Coast Chapter on October 12, 2017 for an engaging evening of learning and discussion. NOTE: This event will take place at the NEW Dominic's at Oyster Point location, at the Oyster Point Yacht Club
