9:00 am - 9:30 am Guest Speaker Keynote: The V-Factor: Leading and Thriving Through Disruptive Change

When it comes to complex organizational changes in the pharma industry, dealing with and driving change is a real challenge. As the industry is being disrupted, our supply chain workforces must not only adapt, but stay ahead. Yet, of all the things that need to change, people’s thinking, habits, and behaviors are the hardest. Peter Demarest is a leading expert and pioneer in the field of neuro-axiology, the integration of cognitive neuroscience and value science. Peter knows that 85-95% of human behavior is driven by subconscious cognitive biases and habits. If our current levels of performance, productivity, and innovation are mostly driven by our worst ways of thinking, imagine what could happen if people could engage even a little bit more of their best ways of thinking? Peter will explain how to do exactly that in yourself and others. He’ll introduce some of the paradigm-shifting principles of neuro-axiology and the cognitive practices of Valugenic [Self] Leadership that can transform people and cultures. You’ll come away with a deeper understanding of how to generate greater value, including:

• How people’s perceptions of value can create either resistance or enthusiasm in the face of change
• Inspiring and cultivating greater purpose, innovation, collaboration, and agility
• Uplifting culture to reducing turnover and attract talent
• Leading and influencing people within and beyond your direct team

10:10 am - 10:50 am Tuesday Treat Break

After a content rich morning, enjoy treats in the LogiLounge! Check out our innovative sponsors, share your a-ha moments from yesterday and map out the rest of your LogiPharma experience.
Manufacturers and distributors are experiencing increased supply chain complexity as cost pressures increase and portfolios evolve. Unfortunately in these high pressure environments, decisions are often made without understanding the true patient impact for providers. This struggle is becoming increasingly complex as the environment shifts, with retailers and payers consolidating and IDNs getting into self distribution and manufacturing because they feel their needs aren’t being met. Do you understand your customer’s pain points as the industry is evolving? How will the supply chain need to adapt? Who is the customer of the future? What are you doing to engage customers to understand their needs? 
Hear from customers about how their needs are evolving, including:

• Staying nimble to continue to provide care, while keeping up with the changes in supply modes
• Self distribution and the value of partnering directly with providers
• Service level expectations including white glove, last mile and at home care
• How to make life easier for providers to provide timely and safe care
