Everyone had a terrific meeting and a fantastic day. I liked the agenda's focus learning sessions, which covered a wide range of topics such as patient engagement, modern centralization trials, and more. Thank you so much for inviting me to this summit.

Craig Lipset Advisor and Founder at Clinical Innovation Partners

Hearing different styles of presentations and meeting with other minds to learn new methods in our business has been fascinating. I like hearing a diversity of viewpoints from the different speakers since it provides me information and validates what I don't know.

Linda Peterson VP Clinical Operations at Global Regulatory Writing & Consulting

The Clinical Trials Strategic Summit successfully brought together many thought leaders in one setting. The experiences through science and real world experiences during COVID-19 was invaluable. I was honored to have been a part of it. I look forward to attending this conference in person next year.
