12 Nov 2015 Leading with courage in difficult times: inteview with Kathrin Schönborn-Sobolewski by Maguy Sicuro
Dr. Kathrin Schönborn-Sobolewski is Vice President of Merck Serono’s Global Clinical Operations organization. Prior to this role she held various leadership positions of increasing responsibility within the Merck group. She is also a highly active volunteer with the Healthcare Businesswomen’s Association. She co-founded and developed HBA in Germany and currently serves as Director Business Operations Europe. In 2015 she received an HBA Luminary award for her work at Merck, to recognize her successes, leadership and role modelling for women.   Kathrin, tell us about your first experience as a leader in difficult times: One key aspect of leadership is to start with leading yourself, especially in times of uncertainty. This is where many people struggle. When I think about myself in this context, I realize that it was very much the case in my early years. I was the first in my family to finish high school and go to university and then I went on to complete a Ph.D. But I had no one to go to; no parents or mentors to ask for advice. This led me to my first lesson: to lead myself through this period and times of uncertainty. I had a clear vision and goal and this became my driver. So do you see this as the starting point in your leadership journey? Yes, and this experience probably also triggered me to immediately volunteer as a mentor when I first came across a mentoring program. I would have loved to have a “go to person” when I was younger, so I wanted to offer support to younger people and enable them to have this wonderful experience and resource. Mentorship has always been very important to me on my professional and leadership journey, both as a mentee and a mentor, throughout my career. You can learn so much from other people, if you are open to feedback and new ideas and thoughts. Contributing to the growth and development of talented people and investing in their future success is very rewarding and it’s an important leadership skill. Can you tell us a little more about leading through change in difficult times? Absolutely! Providing direction, ensuring alignment and mobilizing for change are all at the heart of the art of leadership in uncertain or difficult times. From my point of view, one critical element is to truly know your own and your company’s vision and goal, believe in them, and also be clear about your values. These are important ingredients for authenticity and consistency and these in turn are key to leading yourself and others through difficult times: communicate, be available, and communicate… Over the years I experienced several situations where my teams went through major change. I always took the time to be with the team, to be visible, and explain the reasons behind the change, but also to show that I really cared about people and their personal situation. I also shared some of my personal experiences when going through change, and I tried to help wherever possible.     Change is clearly an important topic for you. Can you share with us how you anticipate and respond to change? Personally, I would say that I am inspired by new experiences. I am a very flexible person, and challenges also motivate me. But that is not true for everyone, some people are afraid of change. This is where leaders need to act in accordance with each situation, although always keeping the bigger picture and clear strategy in mind. Conflict is also a challenge. What advice would you give about managing conflict? Let me share my learnings from my first job as a project leader. I have realized that the majority of conflicts in project teams seems to be content related, but in fact, it is usually caused by conflict between individuals.  So it is important to focus on the individuals: understanding people’s objectives, concerns and personalities to make it possible to guide the team towards the common goal. Once the shared purpose is clear and each person knows how they can best contribute, it is much easier to become a high performing team without conflict. Is there anything else you would like to share around our topic today? Of course. I need to mention the Healthcare Businesswomen’s Association, this great network of women leaders. The HBA offers excellent leadership development opportunities, where volunteers can learn, grow and practice in a safe environment. In addition, the HBA is, just like MPI, a wonderful platform to build and accelerate your network within your environment. And you meet many inspiring women and role models.

5 Oct 2015 How to turn healthcare compliance and regulatory issues into a source of opportunities in the meeting industry?
The workshop started with a creative way of knowing each other thanks to Cyriel Kortleven, international speaker Business Creativity as Moderator, that broke the formal atmosphere with a fun and short networking moment between the participants. In a very small group of 3, you had to find out 3 common interests in 3 minutes time! It was Pat Durocher, CEO & Founder Global Cynergies who officially opened the Forum with a presentation about meeting industry trends and market realities. She attacked the state of the industry by stating what most of us are experiencing: It’s getting harder and harder, handling compliance and reporting has increased cost and adds a layer of complexity in the already rapidly-changing industry of MICE. In an already competitive sector, tensions between suppliers and planners are a big challenge; and those organizing healthcare meetings need to prove they can manage compliance as well as their events. It’s clear compliance brings challenges. Pat Durocher suggested some planner strategies, a few to mention: consider hybrid meetings, prepare an objective “comparative cost analysis”, customize the RFP based on the size of the meeting. Even for the suppliers, there are some opportunities, why not use a “pharma menu” where possible, or pre-negociated meal plans & meeting packages.   Contracts need to be redefined and reviewed. Key to good contracts is clear communication between the parties: finding a better balance between supplier and client, creating win-win scenarios, developing long-term relationships and ensuring transparent reporting. Geert Behets, Director Global Travel & Fleet Management at UCB pharma continued addressing synergy between the different players by shedding light on current issues planners face.  By explaining why clients often feel caught in the "turkey trap", Geert was able to inform suppliers in the room about some of the expectations of the pharma (client) side. The discussion brought to light the following 3 keywords: Trust – Consistency – Transparency. When Christine Sainvil from Eucomed/Ethical MedTech and Federico Toja from MPI joined the two speakers for a panel discussion, it clearly showed that there is a real need to better understand "The Healtcare Code".  The afternoon finished with a brainstorming session - highlights were: - Transparent and honest communication from both sides is key and is the basis of building the needed long-lasting relationships. Setup clear objectives, creating and defining value is important within companies, as well as between planners/suppliers- Less politics would be ideal, but one 'distribution/information channel with information for planners and suppliers is crucial. For those unaware, there’s an app who can already help with that: My Compliance Wizard, an initiative by BusyEvent and MPI International. Webcasts are available for participants and MPI members, thanks to partner Streamdis . Contact mieke(at)mpi-belgium.be for more information. Photos of the event can be seen on MPI Belgium Facebook page. The HMCC course is designed for those who need a broader understanding of a full range of healthcare regulatory topics. It is a perfect fit for those who are involved in planning and reporting transparency and spend as well as those suppliers who provide services and products to the healthcare industry and the condensed class format of the HMCC makes it easier for busy professionals to fit training into their schedules.  Next HMCC course in Europe is scheduled at EMEC16 in Copenhagen.

28 Sep 2015 The Exciting Return of Corporate Events
Corporate Meetings growth compared to other sectors In the 2015 summer edition of MPI’s Meetings Outlook survey, 48 percent of respondents cited domestic corporate business as the segment of their organization’s meeting and event-related business that has seen the greatest increase in activity—that’s up from 37 percent one year earlier. “It’s a very dynamic, positive environment we’re in,” says Bill Voegeli (MPI Georgia Chapter), president of Association Insights, the Atlanta-area research firm that conducts the survey. “Companies are spending somewhat more freely but not recklessly. They are still cautious and still driven by objectives, but their objectives have changed slightly from budget conservation to ROI.” In this new environment, Voegeli says, meeting professionals are more empowered to adapt content and experiences to the needs and desires of attendees. “In the past, planners had to really be creative just to stay within their budget,” he says. “Now their creativity can be redirected toward creating a superior experience in terms of education, networking and morale.” Europe still not as far in the recovery as the U.S. While growth in corporate meetings is strong in the U.S., meeting professionals in some markets are seeing domestic corporate business return more slowly. “I think some corporate business is coming back,” says Alan Pini, CMP, CMM (MPI Italia Chapter), CEO of Teknocongress, a Milan-based supplier of events technology. “There has been a general increase in the export business by large corporations. These are the people who make investments in communications and events. That is coming back—not because the local market is growing but because of the demand by foreign markets, especially China and the Far Eastern markets.” Still, Teknocongress has gotten new domestic business in connection with Universal Expo 2015 in Milan. At the six-month exhibition, more than 140 countries are showing their best technology to guarantee healthy, safe and sufficient food to feed the planet. At the show, Teknocongress has supplied LED walls and “vidiwalls” to such Italian brands as Lavazza coffee and specialty meat purveyor Citterio, for instance. “There is a huge demand,” says Pini, whose company has made large investments in LED walls. “In that respect, we have been successful in the ROI.” Social Media used to extend live events Corporate clients are still keeping a close eye on the ROI of meetings, to the point of coming up with creative metrics with which to measure it. One case in point was a live Lenovo event in Beijing at which the technology company tracked “shared moments” connected to the event, such as chats on the Chinese microblogging site Weibo and media hits. Norman Aamodt, President Event Strategy group says the event had 6.5 million of these shared moments. From his point of view, these new forms of measurement help his business. “Social media and other media—and the ability of people to use their phones to vote and discuss things—extends live events much farther than the live event,” he says. “We’re actually starting to use that as a unit of measure with certain clients, where we are trying to track not only what happens at the event but its life in cyberspace.” The data gives corporate clients who are investing heavily in meetings proof that they are bringing value—something that still matters to top leadership.

21 Sep 2015 MPI's Hosted Buyer Programs Mean Serious Business !
Sparked by a savvy and precisely targeted use of buyer and supplier qualification software, plus MPI’s own considerable meeting industry acumen, the 2015 WEC Hosted Buyer program rolled on this year and got rave reviews from its participants. “To me, MPI is the be-all and end-all of meetings industry expertise, and I think that is why, in my experience, MPI has the best hosted buyer program out there right now,” says Leticia Thorpe (MPI Northern California Chapter), senior manager of convention sales for San Francisco Travel, the official destination marketing organization (DMO) for San Francisco. Thorpe, whose organization has been a regular user of the hosted buyer format at trade shows for the past six years, says the element she finds most appealing about the MPI hosted buyer program is the high level of the vetting and matching of the buyers and suppliers before the show begins. “MPI does a really, really good job of this,” she says. “They give you very, very focused and specific information, and have created the mechanism allowing you to do your own research as well, so you are extremely well matched to the buyers you will have appointments with at the show. And that is all-important, because you are only going to have eight to 12 minutes with each appointment, and each appointment is a key opportunity for suppliers to make sales and build relationships with buyers that may start with that short meeting and last for years.” Thorpe says that “face time” can be hugely effective because it combines the human interaction of a one-on-one meeting with the fact that the buyers and suppliers know a lot about each other based on the information they receive in the lead-up to the buyer-supplier sessions at WEC each year. 70% Return on Investment! “We are finding that with the hosted buyer program at WEC, we are achieving an incredible 70 percent return on investment from our participation,” Thorpe says. “As a DMO, we do not sell the product for the suppliers who are our stakeholders. But we connect our buyers at the hosted buyer sessions with those San Francisco Travel stakeholders, who go on to book business from what we do in those short appointments at MPI hosted buyer. Everybody in the loop benefits.” Watch the interview of  Joas Kemerink, Business Development Manager at RAI Amsterdam and MPI The Netherlands Board member, about his positive experience of MPI's Hosted Buyer Programs: Next MPI Hosted Buyer Program will take place at EMEC16 in Copenhagen! Thanks to a highly qualified process of selection, the hosted buyer program offers the perfect ‘matchmaking’ to buyers and suppliers to satisfy their business needs. This exclusive opportunity for European corporate and association planners will be limited to no more than 25 planners as to keep the program in an intimate environment.
