New training events for Life Sciences industry.

Posted: 13/12/2016

OBN has announced the launch of BioLearn™, its rejuvenated programme of training events for anyone working within the Life Sciences industry. Four different courses presented at differing convenient locations and on varying dates throughout the year.

How the drug discovery industry works - This course is most suitable for those who are new to the drug discovery industry, in non-scientific roles or beginning careers as a scientist, to help gain or develop in depth knowledge of the sector. During this half-day course the structure and commercial environment of the industry will be covered, and will also explain how the industry operates at the technical and commercial levels.


Presentation skills for scientists - Showcasing your company or latest innovation to the industry is an essential part of successful growth, yet it can be a daunting prospect. This one day course, unlike many other presentation skills courses, is designed specifically for the practising scientist. The course will cover all aspects of verbal scientific communication, and encourage delegates to present their own research in a conference format prompting feedback on style and content.

How to deliver the perfect investor pitch - The outcome of an investor pitch will heavily rely on how clearly and confidently a presentation is delivered. This course will provide a practical insight into the mindset, requirements and investment criteria of private equity investors active in the life science industry including business angels, venture capitalists and big pharma investors as well as public funding institutions.

How to maximise your business with social media - Social media platforms, when used correctly, are a great way to allow businesses to directly interact with existing and potential customers and build a strong online reputation in a cost-effective way.This course will help demystify the subject and give you a clear understanding of how your organisation can effectively use applications such as Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn as well for engagement, promotion, educating, listening and much more.
