This session will provide you with practical approaches for positively influencing those above you in the organization in ways that are not only effective, but will actually be appreciated and liked by them. Being able to successfully manage up can result in more access to resources, greater impact on important decisions, and more productive working relationships that mutually benefit both you and your bosses

SAMPS, Sales And Marketing Professionals in Scientific research, is the first and only organization dedicated to sales and marketing professionals within the life sciences.

The association’s goal is to serve its members who work in commercial roles for life science products and services companies and associated businesses, globally.
SAMPS was previously named ACP-LS. We feel that SAMPS more clearly describes the membership, and will form a better foundation from which to expand this membership globally.
