Advisory Board

The LEAP HR: Life Sciences advisory board is comprised of a group of senior people leaders from some of the most innovative biopharma companies, who are designing a movement of HR professionals inspired to change the way HR is currently done in life sciences for the better.

Seeking to drive radical thinking, challenge traditional ideas and inspire experimental HR, the LEAP HR advisory board is co-creating a place where HR leaders can surround themselves with people who are making the biggest LEAPs within their organizations and get the latest thinking.
