P&T is ‘central to our FY23 strategy’ and yet we had to beg and plead to even get a handful of P&T Directors to represent at the Director CLeX happening this week in San Diego.

Not feeling the ‘one firm’ narrative we push - completely tone deaf and sends a horrible message for P&T Directors.

Major missed opportunity to start bridging the divide - particularly at a level where the real work gets done.
