A Conference Sculpted For the Industry by the Industry

Pulling together a programme of the world’s top healthcare speakers at a one-of-a-kind industry event such as EphMRA 2018 would not be possible without our Conference Steering Committee.

The Steering Committee works tirelessly to ensure that EphMRA’s annual conferences provide all of our delegates with the invaluable insights and opportunities to network with colleagues from all over the world each year that they’ve come to expect from our Conferences.

They are currently reviewing all submissions we received, in order to ensure the highest quality of papers are presented in Basel next June.

Steering Committee member Katy Irving of HRW says: “The 2018 conference is shaping up to be full of papers to excite and inspire; from simple process improvements through to big picture changes across the industry! I’m looking forward to attending because I know we’ll come away with changes we can implement immediately as well as the key topics to consider for our agency to continue to evolve in the future.”

EphMRA wishes to thank all of them for all their hard work in advance and during the conference.

This year’s steering committee is made up of Carolyn Chamberlain (Adelphi Research), Kally Wong (Alexion Pharma GmbH), Xierong Liu (Elma Research), Kerensa Bindoff (Fieldwork International), Chara Parmar (GLocalmind), Erik Holzinger (groupH), Katy Irving (HRW),  and Eva Laparra (Medefield), Ines Canellas-Jager (Kantar Millward Brown), Jill Wilson (OSG), Tracy Machado (Phoenix Healthcare), Sarah Phillips (QuintilesIMS), Amr Khalil (Ripple International).
