Season 03: episode 15
This week on the podcast, GOLD discusses the changing field of pharma sales with James Harper, Founder and Managing Director, Twentyeightb.
James shares his story of joining the pharma industry, the incredible importance of striving to add value to every customer engagement, whether MSLs and sales reps could ever converge and the priority of mindset over toolset. All this stems from the inaugural event from James’ new initiative ‘Digital Pharma: Unlocked’ – a group aiming to help the pharma industry see digital as a positive enablement tool.
Meanwhile, in news you might’ve missed, Helena and Isabel discuss a new rare diseases initiative from the EFPIA and an important shift in the inflammatory bowel disease market.
