2018 Event Partners
The mission of the 2-hr European CEO Forum was to provide a unique, powerful and valuable space for the candid sharing of experience between the sector’s most senior executives so that they can leave with new ideas that will drive their businesses and the sector forward. This was specifically aimed at companies located in France, Germany, Netherlands, Belgium, Austria, Switzerland, Italy and Spain.
It was an invitation only, exclusive roundtable forum where all participants are active discussants and have an equal voice. Limited to 30 CEO/CFOs to ensure conversation is meaningful, it followed a strict Chatham House Rule policy and included case study peer review and a general discussion focused on brainstorming solutions to the collective challenges of CEO/CFOs in the sector.
Taking place in a closed door session at the Biotech and Money / Medtech and Money World Congress, the forum featured:
The Case Studies
CEO/CFOs and/or Event Partners put forward “cases” – either success stories or current challenges – focusing on either a fundraising, financing, M&A, licensing or other corporate transaction and used the group as “consultants” with this format:
The General Discussion
All the attendees in the room were be asked:
“If you could have the answer to one question that would help change the fundamental way your business runs, what would it be?”
The questions were scored– the highest score going to the question asked by the most people, and that becoming the focus of the discussion.
