The World Affairs Council of Philadelphia is delighted to welcome Deirdre Connelly, president of North American Pharmaceuticals at GlaxoSmithKline and Amanda Bennett, executive editor of Bloomberg News and former editor of the Philadelphia Inquirer. In this timely program we look forward to discussing the issues presently on the minds of U.S. business leaders, such as: What is the lasting impact of the recession? How do corporations find and develop forward-looking talent?What are their objectives and strategies for growth--if not survival--as all businesses attempt to remain relevant in the 21st century? And for “big pharma” specifically, what does the end of the blockbuster drug era portend, and how will changes on the healthcare landscape impact the industry’s, and its consumers, future?
