Unilever, Reckitt, BASF, Estée Lauder, HBS, AWS, and Kearney Among Speakers at Veeva's Global Summit for Consumer Goods and Chemical Industries

PLEASANTON, CA — September 8, 2021 — Veeva Systems (NYSE: VEEV) today announced the featured speakers at the 2021 Veeva Quality & Regulatory Global Summit beginning on October 18, 2021. Leaders from the world's top consumer goods and chemical companies, including Unilever, Reckitt, BASF, and Estée Lauder, will showcase how they are driving innovation and speed across the product lifecycle.

The virtual event will feature more than 15 sessions with quality, regulatory, legal, marketing, and IT experts across North America and Europe. Thought leaders from regulated industries will share strategies and best practices to modernize critical business initiatives like product compliance, supplier collaboration, and sustainability, including: 

  • Unilever chief supply chain officer and Harvard Business School (HBS) expert Willy C. Shih sharing best practices for excellence in supplier agility, digital transformation, and sustainability in a fireside "master class" discussion.
  • BASF, Estee Lauder, H&H Group, Kearney, and Reckitt highlighting strategies to reframe product compliance and enable a focus on the consumer.
  • Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Unilever showcasing innovative projects incorporating automation and artificial intelligence (AI) into their quality strategy.
  • Reckitt discussing their pursuit to accelerate innovation, reduce risk, and lower costs using digital solutions.  

"Product compliance is too often viewed as a transactional, siloed activity: review a formula, approve a specification, register a product. For today's leaders, product compliance must fuse requirements from consumers, NGOs, authorities, and third-party certifiers," said Michael Romer, partner and managing director at Kearney. "Success will be awarded to those companies that can drive transparency and collaboration across internal and external value chains. We're proud to join Veeva and industry leaders in this conversation."

Summit attendees are also invited to join live CONNECT sessions each day. These networking and industry roundtable discussions will allow executives to engage with each other and Veeva's product and services team members.

The event is complimentary for Veeva customers and qualified professionals in the consumer goods, food and beverage, cosmetic, specialty chemical, and crop sciences industries. Learn more, register, and view the full agenda at industries.veeva.com/Summit2021.
