Here at CPHI we are always focused on facilitating and empowering you to make the connections you need to grow your business and we aim to inspire long-lasting partnerships across the global pharma community. We are constantly working towards ensuring the entire industry can connect in one place... at the heart of Pharma.
But who exactly is at the heart of Pharma? Who are you connecting with at our online and in-person events?
We wanted to get to the core of the people that inspire us the most!
We reached out to attendees and exhibitors at two of our most recent events, CPHI North America and Pharmapack. We wanted to ask them; Why are you part of the pharma industry? How did you first get involved? What drives you within the industry? What's is your big goal for the future? What do you think the future actually holds?
And this is what they had to say!
This project was so valuable, we are already planning to repeat the process at future events and we'll share the results here to keep the stories growing at the heart of Pharma.
Doing your day to day tasks and being at the same job, in the same industry, can make you forget why you're doing what you do. Here at CPHI we just had a brand re-architecture where we really looked at the core of what we are doing and why?
By going back to our core, something amazing happened. It almost felt like we re-sparked our passion. And now that we know why we do what we do, we are very curious know more about you! We want to discover your stories too and to explore why you do what you do?
So during our events we asked people about their stories! How did they get into Pharma, what was their spark? Why did they stay in Pharma and what do they love about it? All of their stories were inspiring and sometimes very personal. We couldn't wait to share them. So this is what they had to say...
Our new Tagline is At the heart of Pharma. For us this means that we are at the centre of the Pharma industry, we are connecting professionals from all over the world.
We can talk about the reason behind our tag line all day, but what does it mean to YOU? We asked the people at our events what their thoughts were on being at the heart of Pharma, and this is what they had to say!
After learning about why people got into the Pharma industry and what their big dreams are. We asked them this: What do you think the future of pharma holds? Are your dreams and goals coming to life? And what are you most excited for?
The answers were, insightful, inspiring, unexpected and most remarkable of all, the answers were very human.
We heard so many amazing stories of which we couldn't pick our favorites. Everytime we made a selection, some other answer would make us rethink it!
So to do justice on all the stories we collected during Pharmapack 2022 and CPHI North America 2022, we made the following compilation.
We can't wait to learn even more about you all! So please share your story with us! You can send us an email or we can meet face to face at CPHI Frankfurt this November
We wanted to share a few of the stories that we captured so far with you! We are proud to help your industry come together and play a little part in getting closer to each and every one of your professional goals and dreams.
What is your story?
Meet Tricia Gay Kennedy-Dixon
Tricia is a Pharmacist working in Jamaica for almost 18 years....
She always wanted to be in the healthcare industry and felt being a pharmacist was the best way to have access to patients. Tricia has worked in retail pharmacy, institutional pharmacy and is currently a lecturer at the University of the West Indies, where she is lecturing future pharmacists, while being a nuclear pharmacist.
She came to CPHI North America, this May, to meet with different manufacturers and drug companies to see what is on the market. With the industry insights and expert advice, she gained here, she is satisfied to return to her students to share all this valuable knowledge and further enhance their educational experience.
Meet Karen Lauxmann
Meet Karen Lauxmann from Pfizer Centre One...
Karen mentioned that she stumbled into Pharma by
accident. She found a job opening within her company and decided to take the
leap. What really won her over was a private situation. Unfortunately, her
grandfather developed cancer, and at this point she realised how medicine
can really impact a person’s life. It may not have saved his life, but at least made the quality
much better! And that made the click for her. She has been in Pharma ever
Meet Tom Hickman
Meet Ken Chomistek, he always wanted to get into pharma...
Ken always wanted to get into pharmaceuticals mainly to help people. Due to the fact that many people in his family got impacted by some type of health disease he wanted to help. Working with medicines and trying to help people is where you can have a direct impact on their health. He got inspired by a project he worked on in collage. Check out the video to learn more about this project, and why he stayed in Pharma!
We would love to hear your story! Tell us why you got into the pharma industry, what is your biggest goal and what do you think the future of pharma holds? You can email us your quotes, send a voice note or send in a video and we will share it on our social media. Let's start inspiring each!
