Why You Should Attend
KAM in the pharma industry is complex and it is no secret that pharma companies have found it difficult to maintain sustainable success with KAM programmes in increasingly complex healthcare systems with progressively more demanding customers.
The Content: Unlike other KAM courses that focus on managing accounts, this course addresses the higher-level (affiliate, regional or global) strategic decisions and business process designs for sustainable success across the organisation. It also deals with the complexities in moving to a multi-functional approach, encompassing Market Access, Medical Science Liaison, Sales …. This course is rich in critical tools, alongside first-hand experience and real examples, all of which will equip you to dramatically improve the capability of your organisation to manage and grow high value strategic accounts.
The Experts: David and Pijush are a perfect complement of each other. David’s expertise is based on both academic KAM research (incl. significant KAM industry research in pharma) and consulting work for some of the world’s top pharma organisations on multi-country KAM programmes. He has over 20 years’ experience in leading KAM programmes across multiple complex and highly regulated sectors that include Pharma, Aerospace, IT, Utilities and Automotive. David has both chaired and presented at international KAM conferences. Pijush brings a lot of real-life pharma company experience to the course: prior to consultancy, he gained 18+ years of experience in Field Force Effectiveness, Strategic Account Management, CRM and Business Analytics at Abbott/AbbVie, leading regional and global initiatives.
Strategic Account Management in Pharma is the only available public training course delivered by David Wright and Pijush Bose on this topic.

This training programme is built around an 8-level model, which you can use afterwards in your company. Individual sessions either focus on the theory behind a critical step in the model or are exercises during which you can practice the tools & techniques.
Based on strong external benchmarks on what constitutes best practice, David and Pijush will help you evaluate your company’s practice, gaps and strengths.
And last but not least, as many sessions combine interactive lectures with group discussion, this course will be a great opportunity for you to exchange experiences and learn from your peers.
One of the most valuable aspects of attending any C.E.L.forpharma course is not only being able to have your specific questions answered by leading experts, but also having the opportunity to share experiences and have in-depth discussions with your international peers.
