ARCS Signature Program

Posted: 16 November 2022

Closes: 13 February 2023

The ARCS Signature Program is designed for senior executives and emerging leaders who are working in the med tech, biotech and pharmaceutical sectors. This includes those who are part of a leadership team responsible for making key decisions about business strategy, budgets, company culture. The group will be carefully curated and comprised of executives in both established and start-up organisations, multinational and local, enabling networking knowledge sharing and debate across the healthcare ecosystem.

The program will have a panel of experts who will be available during certain sessions to provide insights from case studies, or for mentoring (mentoring will be additional to the cost of the program).

The development of the program has been led by an Advisory Board who are well recognised leaders in their own right. They have collectively built the outline and requirements for a program targeted at:

  • Managing Directors or senior functional leaders new to Australia or new to a MD/General Manager role
  • Leaders of small to medium enterprises or other Australian-headquartered entities
  • Section heads or functional leaders of global/regional multi-national organisations based out of Australia as well as department section heads within Australia.

Register your interest for attending an information night in Sydney or Melbourne to learn how the ARCS Signature Program can help you take the next step in your career. We will show how you can benefit from the education and networking resulting from participation in this program.
