On day two of the complimentary virtual 2020 Veeva Quality & Regulatory Global Summit, hundreds of quality, regulatory, legal, IT and marketing practitioners from across the globe logged in to the conference, participated in live Q&As and joined one of our roundtable sessions.
We are so pleased with all the positive feedback we’ve received on the quality of the session content, the opportunities to engage directly with thought leaders and peers, and the ability to deep dive into niche topics in our virtual roundtable discussions. Participants from across the consumer goods, chemical and cosmetics industries are truly making the most of this virtual Summit.
Whether you were able to join us live or are planning to access the content on-demand, here are our biggest takeaways from today’s sessions:
Takeaway #1 Resilience is 2020’s Major Differentiator
In day two’s opening keynote panel hosted by Veeva Vice President Bruce Beilfuss, Summit participants heard how industry leading organizations like Procter & Gamble, Estee Lauder, and SEQENS have managed through this year’s disruptions and set the table to emerge stronger and faster.
Whether it was effectively delivering “supply chain reinvention with sourcing of new products and new formulations” in just a matter of weeks, or figuring out how to manage teams who might have “clouded ability to focus on work and family at the same time,” these senior executives shared their candid experiences, and how they’re managing today amid continued disruption and uncertainty.
Want to hear all of their empowering and thought provoking insights, including what changes these companies are planning to double down on resilience?

Takeaway #2 Reframing Key Business Functions as Strategic Growth Drivers
Across today’s Quality, Regulatory, and Advertising Claims track sessions, a common theme emerged related to these three sometimes overlooked (and under-resourced) business functions. Historically, they may have been labeled cost centers, relegated to the sidelines when strategic decisions were being made, and given lower priority for modernization or digitization. This narrative is now changing for the better.
Today’s speakers showed us how leading companies are reframing and repositioning these critical business functions to reflect their true strategic value.
In one session, the CEO of chemical industry leader FMC “felt that regulatory could provide a competitive advantage in the future as guardians of the right to operate” and gave our guest speaker a seat on the company’s most senior operating committee. In another, consumer goods giant Reckitt Benckiser explored “how we can look at claims management as an enabler to innovation” instead of a “drag on innovation” as it is in so many organizations today.
What to Expect Tomorrow for Summit Day 3 - Adaptability Keynote and More Dedicated Track Sessions
We hope you’ll login to the Summit tomorrow for day three. We’ll kick things off with the keynote panel “How Adaptability is Helping Industries Navigate a Global Crisis” featuring senior leaders from L’Oreal, Reckitt Benckiser, and BASF. Then participants can choose from sessions in our dedicated Quality, Regulatory, and Advertising Claims tracks including Veeva roadmap sessions co-led by our strategy and product leaders.
