Feedback from Industrial Insights 2017

“The Industrial Insights conference gave us a great opportunity to connect with future talent in the pharmaceutical sciences. We were able to share career advice, options and guidance and hopefully to inspire more graduates and post graduates to follow a career in the pharmaceutical industry. I really enjoyed the event and found the energy and enthusiasm from the delegates inspirational.” - Paul Stott, VP Global Product Development, AZ

“The APS Industrial Insights Conference was an excellent opportunity to network and speak to many people about their different careers related to industrial pharmacy and I would love to attend another APS event. It can be quite difficult to organise work experience / placements in the pharmaceutical industry however the conference allowed me to speak to scientists who worked in a variety of industries and learn more about how their career paths lead them to where they are now.” - Industrial Insights delegate

Delegates should book their own accommodation and bus transport to Discovery Park will be provided from Ramsgate, if required.
