Carl Lens, Managing Director Europe and Practice Leader Life Sciences (Amsterdam)

 The Life Sciences industry is currently facing new challenges: innovation in treatments and strategy and a higher emphasis on consumer marketing are impacting talent management strategies in the global life sciences sector. In terms of products and services, it is becoming more difficult to draw the lines that separate medicine, technology and science. This change is also fueled by information- and technology-enabled consumers, disrupting the traditional ties between life-science companies, providers, payers, and patients that determined the industry in the past.
