    Limor Epstein

  • I want to say what an interesting course you run.  In my experience, there is only one moderately comparable “boot camp” for life sciences – largely biotech companies – and that occurs on the day before the BIO annual meeting in the US.  It is “generic” (dealing with a multitude of nationalities and levels of management) although some of the courses on negotiation and contracting are very good.  What is stunningly advantageous about your course is the fact that it has a national focus. As a consequence the effect of cross-pollination of ideas and interactions – such a valuable aspect of the course – is likely to be magnified.

    I would be thrilled to participate if invited again.  And spend more time at the course.

It was refreshing to get these fascinating presentations, covers almost all areas of running a company. I must admit that I was surprised as I experienced greater time than I expected and obviously expanded my knowledge while escalating networking. Well done!
