The Life Science industry has evolved and transformed dramatically in the last few years. It can be challenging to stay on top of everything, which is why ACTO is a Life Science Trainers and Educators Network (LTEN)’s Preferred Industry Partner. LTEN is essential in helping those directing, managing, and delivering training excellence to pharmaceutical and medical device learners as a resource for up-to-date industry insight and innovation. In the latest episode of The Learning Journey podcast, Kathleen Herndon, the new Executive Director of LTEN, and Dawn Brehm, who served as Executive Director of LTEN for ten years, discuss the commercial learning and training space, how the industry has pivoted, and how to stay on top of it all. 

Here’s a teaser of what you’ll find in the podcast:

  • Finding your people: There is new information daily in our industry, and many organizations provide many learning opportunities, so it can be challenging to determine where to focus your attention. Have a question and need to engage in a discussion, or, share exciting innovation insight? Finding the right way to do this helps you learn, retain knowledge, and succeed!
  • Hybrid Training: For the past few years, we have all been training virtually, but now that we are back in person, how do we balance the best of both approaches? Finding this balance is the new “grey area” of training and understanding what can be virtual versus  in-person is a challenge. We discuss how different training solutions and technologies can help solve these pain points and highlight some exciting new solutions launching this year.
  • Roadmap to Success: There are so many new solutions and training opportunities available that it makes it hard to know where to start—especially if you are new. We discuss LTEN’s learning tools and weekly webinars that help filter through the material, as well as a new roadmap to guide trainers through the process of developing their abilities, career pathways, and more.

Listen to the podcast to discover more about customized industry resources, insights, and new technologies, as well as how you may benefit from having the industry at your fingertips. We also talk about hot topics like data metrics and omnichannel learning. 

“If you want people to stay with you and help you make it a great place to work, you better invest in them. And the better your training is, the better your investment is.”
