PHT Web Series: Mid-Year Numbers Show Success

  • 1.  PHT Web Series: Mid-Year Numbers Show Success

    Posted 08-02-2021 15:05

    The Pharmaceutical & Health Technology Community (PHT) initiated a series of hour-long webinars in November 2020. "PHarma Talks" were a means of professional development outreach and "PHT Vendor Showcases" facilitated 10-minute updates from up to four vendors during one session.

    The PHT Webinars are on a break for the summer, and, as SLA segues from Go To Webinar (GTW) to Zoom, it seems to be a good time to summarize some series numbers captured by Go To Webinar up to this point.

    Overall, for the combined eleven webinars that were held, there were 717 attendees. In post-session evaluations, the average attendee rating for finding value in the series was 4.4 (out of a high of 5). Recordings of the webinars were viewed by 307 people. The numbers are separated out below by PHarma Talks and Vendor Showcases.

    PHarma Talks Attendee comments:

    • It was a good introduction to some current real applications of AI & what potential/challenges lie ahead to actual discovery research. Thanks to whoever suggested the talk! (& all who made it happen)
    • Excellent presentation and well worth spending an hour of my day.  I got some ideas how I can go back to use data.  I learned about a resource I had not known about before.  Thank you.
    • This "case study" format was really valuable. There were good practical ideas and concrete steps to take away from [the speaker's] story.

    Vendor Showcase Attendee comments:

    • Nice succinct demo of some vendor products I hadn't seen in a while. TY!
    • This was great.  Thank you for putting these vendor showcases together.  It is important to stay abreast of vendors and their enhancements.  This has been a challenge for many in the pandemic.  You have come up with a great bridge to getting back to person, with these showcases.  Thank you.
