Biotech and Money's CEO Forum has two core benefits.

Firstly, it is a forum that is strong on engagement and peer-to-peer sharing of experience and knowledge. With such a wealth of talent and experience gathered round the table, genuine learning and idea generation is paramount.

Secondly, the forum is a vehicle for not just new ideas, but for genuine positive outcomes – both for the CEOs present, but also for the sector as a whole.

Following a Chatham House rules roundtable discussion and peer review case study format, everyone participating has a voice, can share his or her own experiences and can help to share and shape best practice.

The brand new format includes:

  • Half-day of activity, beginning with a luncheon and ending with networking and a seat at Biotech and Money's Gala Dinner and Awards
  • A high level guest speaker during lunch
  • Interactive peer review case studies, moderated by experts in their fields
  • A 1.5 hour general roundtable discussion on funding, financing and investment in the UK that will have actionable outcomes as its goal


CEOs and/or event partners put forward case studies – either success stories or current challenges – focusing on a fundraising, financing, M&A, licensing or other corporate transaction, and use the group as “consultants”. Each case study follows this format:

  • Headline – short and enticing
  • Nutshell – a concise statement of the issue
  • Background – the players, the issue, what was at stake, etc
  • What Was Tried? - what worked and what didn’t
  • Questions - clarifying questions from the group.
  • Peer Consultation
  • Review - what are you taking back with you? what will you try?


All the attendees in the room will be asked:

“If you could have the answer to one question, that would fundamentally help change the way your business runs, what would it be?"

The questions will be scored– the highest score going to the question asked by the most people, and that becoming the focus of the discussion.

General notes:

  • Time will be managed carefully, with plenty of time for discussion
  • Each speaker will be asked to communicate a clear message & solicit specific feedback
  • The moderator will be briefed to guide the discussion to touch on all participants' concerns
