This Roundtable will be held Nov. 6-7, 2019 for 25–30 communications professionals in health care.

What can you expect?

The Roundtable is a two-day commitment. Its purpose is single-minded: to benefit your career and your organization. Though the discussion is free-flowing, we do set an agenda based on a short online survey sent to attendees. The survey gives us an idea of what’s on everyone’s mind.

Evening activities, in which attendees mingle and network with peers and industry leaders, complement the daily agenda. Shortly after the Roundtable ends, you’ll get a detailed set of notes made by one of our Ragan editors in attendance. Our house scribe allows you to pay full attention to and contribute your thoughts to the discussion without the distraction of taking notes.

We call it a combination of group therapy, benchmarking, idea sharing and networking.

Why so exclusive?

Since the discussion centers on the experiences of the participants, it’s crucial that our attendees have seen enough success and failure to support a strong discussion.

Who’s attending?

Past Leadership Roundtables have hosted participants from nearly every industry. Many attendees lead large teams, but others are from teams of one or two communicators.
