Cheers – Launch Party a Success!

cheers San Francisco and the clinops toolkit

Dinner is served

This week I held a networking event to officially launch the Clinical Operations Toolkit. I co-hosted a complimentary dinner at a restaurant in Burlingame, a lovely city in the San Francisco Bay Area peninsula.  Space was limited but the event was open to all blog subscribers, ClinOps Toolkit Facebook followers, Twitter followers, and LinkedIn group members.  We had a great response and were able to accommodate everyone who was available to attend (despite a last-minute invitation right after the Independence Day holiday).

Thank you attendees for your support

A very special thank you is due to all of the attendees.  The conversation was excellent and I was taking lots of notes for new blog topics.  The combined experience of the attendees left me in awe and I am so grateful for all the support on this new project.  For those of you who were not able to attend, the event left me inspired; I can’t wait to host another one soon.  I hope very much that you will be able to join me at a future event. Don’t miss out – sign up for the mailing list or follow ClinOps Toolkit at Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn to be kept informed of future events.

Thank you to our Sponsor

Lean In - Women, Work, and the Will to Lead is a 2013 book written by Sheryl Sandberg, who served as the chief operating officer of Facebook at the time of publication.

Women, Work, and the Will to Lead – 2013

Finally, I would like to express my deepest gratitude to Stiris Research Inc. for generously sponsoring and coordinating the entire event.

This privately-held, woman-owned CRO is based in London, Ontario (on Facebook, too) – they kindly offered to sponsor this event to support me in the ClinOps Toolkit project without any solicitation.

Stiris Research’s president, Shantal Feltham served as chairwoman for the Women Clinical Leadership Forum at an industry-conference earlier this year.  She met with me this week and graciously provided me a complimentary copy of Sheryl Sandberg’s bestseller, Lean In.  I am really looking forward to reading the book this summer.  

Thanks again

I’m a lucky lady and I’m overwhelmed by all of this initial support.  Thank you.
