On the 24th of August 2001, a group of business and licensing executives united in Basel and founded the Swiss Pharma Licensing Group. The first Board defined objectives, recruited members and set up the foundation for today’s association.
The Board at Swiss HLG would like to wish you a Happy New Year. At Swiss HLG, the celebrations are not over. Our Healthcare Megatrends Winter Conference is now only one week away!
This exciting two-day programme is action packed! It includes a hands-on workshop on how to negotiate your way out of existing licensing agreements and a personal development session that will teach you how to lead the pack and become a powerful professional force on social media. We also have an afternoon with some of the Swiss HLG Founding members, exploring historical Healthcare Megatrends and their evolution over time.
Monika Naef, Certified Global Negotiator and Partner, Dufour Attorneys, will lead the Pre-Conference Workshop, while Marc Churin, HR Manager at Samsic Switzerland, will challenge our current social media beliefs in the personal development session.
Our global panel of experts, from diverse healthcare sectors, are inspired by our Healthcare Megatrends topic. They are ready to inform and share their insights, even the controversial, to ensure that you understand and can foresee the impact Megatrends will have on healthcare ecosystems and the BD&L working environment. And that’s just the conference programme!
We continue after hours with our 15th Anniversary celebrations. The setting is, of course, cosy Swiss style, with live music, great food and plenty of opportunities to network with colleagues. To complete the scene, Flüeli Ranft and the Hotel Paxmontana will be picture perfect this year, with plenty of snow currently falling. Why not stay a few extra days and take in some great skiing in the Melchsee-Frutt or Engelberg mountains.
To find out more about the beautiful Jugendstil-Hotel Paxmontana and its stunning surrounds, please visit their >>> website.
We look forward to meeting you there.

The Emergence of 26 New Life Science Business Models
November saw the Swiss HLG hold their first webinar, which members met with a lot of interest. Professor Brian D. Smith guided members through his evolutionary approach to how business models in the life science industry are changing. He also provided key insights into how they could keep their business at the top of the ‘Pharma Jungle’.
If you would like to find out more details about this topic, Prof. Smith has written a book on the subject, Darwin’s Medicine. You can purchase the book here.
We have more webinars planned for 2017, some of which will be available to friends and members of Swiss HLG. We will keep you up to date, as we roll out more of our start-up initiatives in the new year.
