In December 2016, BioBreak and Militia Hill Ventures brought together about 100 biopharmaceutical industry executives in Philadelphia to discuss a rather important topic — corporate board service. You may recall my touching on this topic in the “Editor’s Note” in the January 2017 issue of Life Science Leader, which caught the attention of a number of readers. One person (a recently retired manufacturing executive with over 30 years of industry experience) wrote, “For the last eight years I have held seats on non-profit boards, and I am now very interested in obtaining an advisory role/board seat.” He went on to ask my advice on how to go about pursuing corporate board opportunities, and so we scheduled a phone call.
