The Challenge

Preparing to present and defend your product at a high stakes meeting is a major challenge for any team. At critical lifecycle milestones, such as CHMP Oral Explanations, FDA Advisory Committees or payer negotiations, your product’s future may be at stake.

Your company needs to deliver a clear and compelling argument supporting your position, and be ready to respond confidently when challenged.
