England

After 18 months of planning and preparation, we come down to the day before our departure on the Road to 2021. Our crew of four have each packed 25 outfits, we've picked up the chrome-wrapped Mini Coopers that will take us around Europe, and we've got enough gear to load both little cars to the roof.

 

We were lucky to meet with a few companies on the eve of the trip, kicking off what will be a lot of discussions on the Future of Healthcare. These included My Personal Therapeutics, Cynovia Ltd, Centaur Biopharmaceutical Services, Haig BarrettManufacturing Chemist, and RSK-Solutions.

 

We also hosted a pre-trip event at Home House in Portman Square, London on the eve of our departure. We were grateful to be joined by some valued friends and colleagues from the industry and appreciated a send-off. Here we go...
