Essential tactics to engage and understand stakeholders, influence them and communicate the value of your solutions or opportunities.

This unique training course is specifically tailored towards life science professionals who need to learn powerful soft skills. Those who attend will engage more external stakeholders (KOLs, Clinicians, MoH) or customers, stand out from the competition, overcome objections and better "sell" the true value of their solutions, proposals or opportunities

What's the unmet need?

We at NextLevel Life Sciences, have a unique perspective on how life science professionals can dramatically and immediately improve their influence & persuasiveness. At our industry events, we constantly observe our clients’ successful interactions, but also missed opportunities. For example, many executives in life sciences companies are true subject-matter or technical experts. Often, however, they haven't received any structured training on negotiation, influence and persuasion, so are not maximising their chances of ensuring the most from each customer interaction.

We have recognised a strong need for a structured and interactive course which will definitely help life sciences professionals to engage stakeholders, appreciate their needs, positively influence them, demonstrate true value and forge lasting business relationships.
