Journalism Job

Media Organization: PharmaBoardroom

Company Description

Pharma Boardroom is the premier website for C-Level executives, consultants, regulators and vendors working in Healthcare & the Life Sciences globally.

This site is for senior professionals who want to understand local and global markets on a strategic level and benefit from their peers’ on-the-ground experience. Our teams go deep into key country markets, conducting hundreds of exclusive interviews with the movers and shakers of the industry. By capturing their opinions we create an experience-based study of the challenges and opportunities in these markets.

In a fluid and ever-evolving healthcare environment, shared knowledge, where leaders learn from each other, is invaluable. Practical know-how and experience can be adapted by different companies, different markets, different regimes. Pharma Boardroom allows you to read the opinions of peers in your own country market, but also provides a high-level snapshot of other markets and organisations, allowing you to examine how others have faced similar issues to your own, and how they have executed successful business strategies in demanding environments.

With over a thousand interviews and daily updates, Pharma Boardroom will walk you through the path of development, where market regulators and the industry are in a constant dialogue to improve business opportunities. Supplemented by the latest news from global markets, articles, market overviews, and a comprehensive database of the most important companies and business leaders in each key market, Pharma Boardroom is an invaluable resource for those who want to look beyond figures.
