Introduction to Scientific Communication for Pharmaceutical Teams

Relationships, trust and credibility are the main currency in the pharmaceutical industry, so it’s more important than ever to convey knowledge and professionalism with confidence and clarity, to gain the HCP’s trust and respect. Effective communications in the pharmaceutical sector requires a specific skill set. 

Leadership Communication Skills

“The course you delivered was the best I have experienced in my career. Even skeptical people were quickly won around and delighted by the results. We are keen to now roll this out for the leaders in our business.”

Carol Campbell Buying Director

Training overview

This communications course is specifically aimed at the needs of pharmaceutical sales teams and medical science liaisons. With a clear structure based on how the brain best receives and processes information, you and your team will be able to take complex, technical data and translate it into clear business stories that are both concise and memorable.

We also reveal scientifically proven techniques to increase confidence during presentations, to achieve more impact and more positive responses to your ideas and information. You will also learn how to gain a deeper understanding of the motivations of the people you meet, and judge how they make decisions. 

When you and your team build a deeper rapport with an audience, tailor how you speak and act and at the same time clearly convey important business messages people need to hear, the results will be exponential. The main aim will always be to build trust and improve your relationships with HCPs, key opinion leaders (KOLs) and stakeholders.
