The life sciences industry is growing, and it’s not just because of the pandemic. As I explained in my last blog, we are still trying to conquer diseases for patients with unmet medical needs like cancer, Alzheimer’s, diabetes, Crohn’s disease and rheumatology that affect millions of people every day. Cancer, Haematology and Neurology dominate in the arena of new treatments being made...

With report of mental health issues on the rise a result of the pandemic, it’s important to remember to prioritise your mental health as the world around continues to change, often with little warning. Of course, for those suffering, there are some fantastic resources out there, reminding us of the things we can do to help ourselves keep mentally healthy during these difficult times (and...

I graduated with my Bachelor of Science degree back in 1982, almost 40 years ago. Similar to the Class of 2020, I also graduated into a world of global economic volatility and recession. At the time, it was considered to be the worst economic climate since the Second World War. However, what today’s young graduates are facing is undoubtedly far more challenging on so many levels and from so...

Cybersecurity breaches have recently made global headlines, many of which have been attributed to a rapidly expanded online world because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Consequently, there is a heightened push not only to prevent such attacks from happening, but to develop IT and security infrastructure that can deal with these differing and increased online demands. Therefore, there has never...

Whilst consumer preferences for online channels were unquestionably present prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, the unexpected global events of 2020 accelerated this trend on an unprecedented scale. Many businesses reacted to the crisis by fast-tracking their digital transformation initiatives, and there was a sharp increase in the number of businesses switching their primary focus to online...

I’ve spoken to lots of people recently who are putting a brave and happy face on things, but underneath, they’re struggling, they’re feeling despondent and finding it hard to motivate themselves at work. They feel as if they’ve lost their work mojo. The summer holidays they were looking forward to were different from what they had planned for or perhaps didn’t...

In the current chaos and uncertainty combined with the pace of change and fragility of our lives, making time for reflection becomes a necessity for sanity and effectiveness, rather than a simple luxury. I would like to share with you the analogy of the ‘dancefloor and the balcony’ When we are rocking our moves on the dancefloor, we are in the middle of the hustle and bustle, and although...

At the beginning of this year – which feels like a lifetime ago – the jobs market here in the US was on track to thrive with record low unemployment rates and a very bullish economic outlook. Then, out of nowhere, the COVID-19 pandemic hit and turned the global economy on its head. As a result, the hiring landscape has shifted significantly, with industries experiencing severe...

The coronavirus pandemic has undoubtedly brought tragedy and turmoil, there’s no understating that. However, some genuinely positive changes have come about as a result of the disruption. In the early stages of the crisis, you might have understandably imagined that the initial interruption to our lives would only be temporary, and that after a little while, things would generally return to...

Networking: a word that drives fear into the heart of many introverts! That’s often because many still have a stereotypical view of what networking means.
